The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. ― Confucius

"Do or do not. There is no try." Yoda

" Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size. But when I start to tell them, They think I'm telling lies. I say, It's in the reach of my arms, The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I'm a woman phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. " Maya Angelou
