Steve Maraboli
“Do not sabotage your new relationship with your last relationship’s poison.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Edward Abbey
“Let's have some precision in language here: terrorism means deadly violence -- for a political and/or economical purpose -- carried out against people and other living things, and is usually conducted by governments against their own citizens (as at Kent State, or in Vietnam, or in Poland, or in most of Latin America right now), or by corporate entities such as J. Paul Getty, Exxon, Mobil Oil, etc etc., against the land and all creatures that depend upon the land for life and livelihood. A bulldozer ripping up a hillside to strip mine for coal is committing terrorism; the damnation of a flowing river followed by the drowning of Cherokee graves, of forest and farmland, is an act of terrorism.
Sabotage, on the other hand, means the use of force against inanimate property, such as machinery, which is being used (e.g.) to deprive human beings of their rightful work (as in the case of Ned Ludd and his mates); sabotage (le sabot dropped in a spinning jenny) -- for whatever purpose -- has never meant and has never implied the use of violence against living creatures.”
Edward Abbey, Postcards from Ed: Dispatches and Salvos from an American Iconoclast

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“More times than I can remember I look around and I ask why the hole I’m in looks so strangely familiar. Probably because it looks a whole lot like all the other ones I dug before I got around to digging this one.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“The barrier to our future is often the very plans that we’ve created to get there.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Kamand Kojouri
“We grow old judging others
And ourselves
Until life humbles us
And makes scared children of us
Longing to hold another’s hand
To hear their kind words
And witness their kind deeds
done on our behalf.
But like children,
We sabotage everything
For nothing satisfies us
Until life crumbles us
And we are no more.”
Kamand Kojouri

Craig D. Lounsbrough

Craig D. Lounsbrough

Marian Deegan
“When we play it safe, we sabotage our chance to make our mark in a memorable, authentic way. Health care organizations confront pressures to provide more responsive, personal care with cost efficiency, striving to provide the industry’s “patient-centered care” goal. However, when every hospital system and specialty clinic cautiously claims to provide “patient-centered care”— because all of their competitors claim to provide “patient-centered care”—their claim becomes so safe that they disappear into the din of their competitors’ identical claims.”
Marian Deegan, Relevance: Matter More

Helen Macdonald
“And I was sure it was the drink that irrigated White’s self-sabotage, for it is the common trait of alcoholics to make plans and promises, to oneself, to others, fervently, sincerely, and in hope of redemption. Promises that are broken, again and again, through fear, through loss of nerve, through any number of things that hide that deep desire, at heart, to obliterate one’s broken self.”
Helen Macdonald, H is for Hawk

Whitney G.
“I would never sabotage you, Mya.” He wiped away one of my stray tears with his fingertips. “Of course, deep down I did want you to stay, but I had nothing but nice things to say about you. I even said they’d be foolish not to hire you, but—” “But?” I glared at him. “But what?” “But if they thought the low-ass salaries they were offering were good enough for you, they needed to increase them exponentially or move along to someone else. I thought you deserved more.” “Is that all?” “No,” he said, looking into my eyes. “I also needed to personally interview each of the CEOs myself. Needed to make sure each one was a good fit for you, and that whoever you worked for next was already married.” I opened my mouth to ask him if he was being serious, but he beat me to it. “Yes,” he said, smirking. “Yes, I ‘seriously’ did need to do that.” “What does the CEO being married have to do with anything, Michael? What if I have no interest in seeing you after I quit?” “You do, so we’re not even going to entertain that line of conversation.” He rolled his eyes. “If the CEO is already married, I won’t have to worry about ‘this’ happening at your next place of employment, and I can be somewhat less jealous.” “How selfish of you.” I couldn’t believe him, but for some reason I couldn’t help the smile that was forming on my face.”
Whitney G., Naughty Boss

Richie Norton
“You can be the most productive and most effective, but politics show up as ego, jealousy and sabotage from bosses who can’t perform.”
Richie Norton

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“If I simply look at the map that I’ve so tediously created, it will explain why I’m laying at the bottom of this cliff looking up.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“Most of us respond with panic when we get what we want. The moment of victory is often the moment of greatest peril. We let success get to our head and start acting in over-confident ways. This is the beginning of self-destruction”
Mohadesa Najumi

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“I often think myself to be so ingenious that I don’t even realize that my own plans may actually be my own undoing. Therefore, I might be wise to realize that God’s plans undo what I’ve done that’s undoing me.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Donna Lynn Hope
“While struggling with all the loss in her life, she mournfully thought, "If only I could forget..." But that would be too easy, wouldn't it? However, she did with most; she never got too close and she never stayed too long, but there she was...struggling with all the loss in her life.”
Donna Lynn Hope

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“When I read the ghastly lines of tragedy darkly penned into my life, I turn and notice that the pen in my hand is wet.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“In a relationship with God, our most secret places once thickly cloaked and meticulously hidden away now stand before us utterly and entirely exposed. And it may be that this dreaded fear is the single thing that keeps us an arm’s length from God, and forever a single step away from His blessings.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Kangoma Kindembo
“The best way to get your enemy to work for you as a friend is - to create an environment where it is difficult to define the nature of friendship or enmity easily.”
Kangoma Kindembo

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“It takes but a handful of words to ambush my soul with hope. Yet, the vexing question in it all is why do I so often ambush the words?”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer!
Never Forget!
Live every day to the fullest!
Never take anything for granted!”

Curtis Tyrone Jones

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Shovels serve two purposes. One is to dig holes and the other is to fill them. And I must say that my life evidences my expertise with the first, but apparently I can’t figure out the second.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Christina Engela
“Sabotage isolated them from their home, thwarting any hope of outside help. Frantic, unreliable sightings of frightening things – horrible things - led to chaos. The crew, terrified, opted to die fighting and went hunting for their attacker. Kaine’s only regret was that they found it.
It killed them all.
Systematically.”
Christina Engela, Demonspawn
