Good Morning East Tennessee!

It's Tuesday – time for the best quotes in world history,

"Men never plan to be failures; they simply fail to plan to be successful." William Ward

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it." --Buddha

"Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't." -- Erica Mann Jong

"Fall seven times and stand up eight." --Japanese Proverb

"The rewards for those who persevere far exceed the pain that must precede the victory." --Ted Engstrom

"Song writing is about getting the demon out of me. It's like being possessed. You try to go to sleep, but the song won't let you. So you have to get up and make it into something, and then you're allowed to sleep." -- John Lennon

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude." -- Thomas Jefferson

"Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take." -- Anthony Robbins

"The tragedy of war is that it uses man's best to do man's worst." --Harry Fosdick

Your life will change at the point when you no longer care. Be very, very careful at this point.


Have a great day!
