“Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.”
Ben Carson, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story

“Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give.”
Ben Carson

“Do your best and let God do the rest.”
Ben Carson
