The road and oil for the machinery of life

"You will either step forward into growth or you will step back into safety." ~ Abraham Maslow

"Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing." ~ Denis Waitley

"I see that I am inwardly fashioned for faith and not for fear. Fear is not my native land; faith is. I am so made that worry and anxiety are sand in the machinery of life; faith is oil. I live better by faith and confidence than by fear and doubt and anxiety. In anxiety and worry my being is gasping for breath — these are not my native air. But in faith and confidence I breath freely — these are my native air." ~ Eli Stanley Jones

And one more, because there is an oppositional duality that seems to permeate this season for me and besides it made me laugh:

"Mondays are the potholes in the road of life." ~ Tom Wilson (Ziggy creator)
