Take A Mint

Sometimes, you need a quick refresher on your way out the door. Take a quick mint here. I always feel more rejuvenated and more invigorated  after reading these  PEPpermints of another kind:

  • “Man is made or unmade by himself.   In the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself.  He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy,  strength and peace.  Man is the master of his thought, the molder of his character and the maker and shaper of his condition,  environment and destiny.”  (James Allen in his book As a Man Thinketh.)
  • “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.  I don’t believe in circumstances.  The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they wanted and if they can not find them. Make them.” (George Bernard Shaw)
  • “Far better to dare mighty things,  to win glorious  triumphs even though checkered by failure than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” (Theodore Roosevelt)
  • “If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,  or  Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. “(Martin Luther King, Jr.)
