“I’m not aspiring to be someone else – If I’m me for the rest of my life then so be it”
Terry Lander, Life Through the Eyes of an Insider: 101 Poems to Help You Understand Life Better

“True happiness isn't something that is achieved only once and continues; it is something we must strive for again and again.”
Terry Lander

“The act of running is simple, one foot in front of the other. The art of becoming a runner is achieved through a new mindset and commitment to change, especially if it’s new to you. It’s tough, challenging, painful, sometimes lonely, regularly uncomfortable and often excruciating…but the rewards are second to none.”
Terry Lander, Fat Guy Runs A Marathon

“Most modern calendars mar the sweet simplicity of our lives by reminding us that each day that passes is the anniversary of some perfectly uninteresting event.”
Oscar Wilde

“In a false quarrel there is no true valour.”
William Shakespeare
