A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course of victory.
A man's sexual choice is the result and the sum of his fundamental convictions.... He will always be attracted to the woman who reflects his deepest vision of himself, the woman whose surrender permits him to experience a sense of self-esteem. The man who is proudly certain of his own value, will want the highest type of woman he can find, the woman he admires, the strongest, the hardest to conquer--because only the possession of a heroine will give him the sense of an achievement.
Pilkington, at Mombasa, had produced individuals who were sexually mature at four and full grown at six and a half. A scientific triumph. But socially useless. Six-year-old men and women were too stupid to do even Epsilon work. And the process was an all-or-nothing one; either you failed to modify at all, or else you modified the whole way. They were still trying to find the ideal compromise between adults of twenty and adults of six. So far without success. Mr Foster sighed and shook his head.
But later that day, the streets of Kweilin were strewn with newspapers reporting great Kuomintang victories, and on top of these papers, like fresh fish from a butcher, lay rows of people - men, women and children who had never lost hope, but had lost their lives instead.
There's a gentle sigh which descends like billowing silk upon the soul that accepts its coming death. It's a gentle pocket of air in the turbulence of everyday life... the silk settles around you as if it has been drifting towards the earth forever and has finally found it's target. The flag of defeat has been mercifully dropped and, in this action, the loss is not so bad. Defeat itself is defeated by the embrace of defeat, and death is swallowed up in victory.
I also have a brand-new prescription for gunfire jitters: When the shooting gets loud, proceed to the nearest wooden staircase. Run up and down a few times, making sure to stumble at least once. What with the scratches and the noise of running and falling, you won't even be able to hear the shooting, much less worry about it. Yours truly has put this magic formula to use, with great success!
This week I've been reading a lot and doing little work. That's the way things ought to be. That's surely the road to success.
I carry a secret sense of accomplishment around with me, like a radium pack implanted near my heart that now leaches a quiet sense of relief through my system.
Novels ought to have hope; at least, American novels ought to have hope. French novels don't need to. We mostly win wars, they lose them. Of course, they did hide more Jews than many other countries, and this is a form of winning.
It seemed like if I left the game winning, I got the win, and if I left the game losing, I got the loss.
His biggest accomplishment was being a fabulous son to me. He gave the world's best hugs. Our focus is just that he was wonderful, that people loved him and that he will be sorely, sorely missed.
I'm just tired of losing these games that I feel we should be winning. If we want to beat these Top 25 teams, which I think we can, then we've got to get over that hump.
We set high goals at the beginning of the year. But we can't dwell too long on the victory. We celebrate and move on (to the next race).
This year did not just happen. It took three years. The secret of being a successful coach is when you have good athletes, being able to put those athletes where they have the highest percent chance of winning.
It's a great accomplishment, and I'm definitely proud of it. By no means, coming into the season, did I think about getting 100 points. But as it became near, it was something I thought would be a nice feat, and I tried to have the best finish to the season and have no regrets.
We are proud to promote Carlin West to this new position. She has had a hand in the success of many of our most popular properties. Since joining 4Kids more than 12 years ago, Carlin has demonstrated a valuable, diverse skill set including identifying exciting new kids' properties, brand positioning and much more. We look forward to expanding her responsibilities in this new role.
Actually, I'm an overnight success, but it took twenty years.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them and they were sore afraid.
We've waited four years for this victory, ... We can wait one more night.
I do not understand why people ask for Leaving CERTIFICATE while leaving.... is leaving an achievement.
Each day is a special gift from God, and while life may not always be fair, you must never allow the pains, hurdles, and handicaps of the moment to poison your attitude and plans for yourself and your future. You can never win when you wear the ugly cloak of self-pity, and the sour sound of whining will certainly frighten away any opportunity for success. Never again. There is a better way.
Each coming together of man and wife, even if they have been mated for many years, should be a fresh adventure; each winning should necessitate a fresh wooing.
We have a really good opportunity to put a lot of guys in the draft and really say a lot about the work we've been putting in the last four or five years, playing in those big championship games, winning the conference (two) times and really setting it up
You get one or two teams having big, winning years, like Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle are doing this year, ... and that doesn't leave too many wins for the rest of us.
This was an equal opportunity training camp. Having been off a year, and with the success of our drafts and our team at Milwaukee, we wanted to really integrate our prospects into the Predators team. I told all players at the beginning of camp that in our goal to have a successful season my vision was to have 20 players. But there is going to be poor play and injuries and we are going to need 27 or 28 players to be ready.
The focus must always be on the task that the person wants to accomplish, to communicate, to learn, to create, to be entertained.
There are so few women in general who aren't completely threatened and confused by other women's success. It's very disappointing.
This is definitely a good victory, not only for my own confidence but the game, and gives me good hopes next week.
Good writers define reality; bad ones merely restate it. A good writer turns fact into truth; a bad writer will, more often than not, accomplish the opposite.
My real achievement is my daughter and my three beautiful grandchildren.
