Your children will nurse at the breast of your wisdom and draw it out through your conversation. Make sure that this milk is free of contaminants like bitterness, envy, pettiness or vulgarity.
T.D. Jakes

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.

Some fear that if parents start listening to their own wants and needs they will neglect their children. It is our belief that children are in fact far less likely to be neglected when their parents’ needs – for support, for friendship, for decent work, for health care, for learning, for play, for time alone – are being met.

The Power of Self-Discipline

Pop didn’t teach me golf. He taught me discipline.
Arnold Palmer

If you do the things you need to do when you need to do them, then someday you can do the things you want to do when you want to do them.
Zig Ziglar

If we conquer some basic appetites first, we will have the power to make good on higher level resolutions later. For example, many people would experience a major transformation if they would maintain a healthy diet and exercise program.
Stephen Covey

When you have a number of disagreeable duties to perform, always do the most disagreeable first.

Rick Pitino

Men’s metabolisms start slowing down in their mid to late thirties. So if at 40 you’re eating the same way you did at 30, you’re guaranteed to put on weight. It’s that simple. To compensate, it’s crucial that you exercise more and eat less as you age.
Dr. Woodson Merrill

The Adversity Advantage

My kids never had the advantage I had. I was born poor.

In many ways, I think I was fortunate to grow up in poor, rather hard, circumstances, because it taught me early how to overcome adversity.
Gary Player

I thank fate for having made me born poor. Poverty taught me the true value of the gifts useful to life.
Anatole France
