Donald Van de Mark
“Good, capable individuals unconsciously and consciously guard and nurture themselves and their spirits every day in all sorts of choices, large and small. Just as their lives are never static, they are rarely if ever fractured. Their morals and ethics are never cut off from the whole of their evolving beings.”
Donald Van de Mark

Bethenny Frankel
“Life is an obstacle course. You succeed at one thing and then you move on to the next. When an obstacle is tough, you try harder. When an obstacle is insurmountable, you change course. But you never sit down and refuse to finish.”
Bethenny Frankel, A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life
