You can not fail when trying you can only be defeated. You fail when you give up!

Success is measured not by what you gain, but what you overcome

You are more likely to be successful at attempting to be better than yourself than to be better than someone else.

You can only live life forward and understand it backward.

Success isn't how far you get, but the distance you travel from where you start

Many hands make light work

Whistle while you work

Don't learn the tricks of the trade, learn the trade.

Worth the wait

With flying colors

I knew you could do it!

Way to go!

Couldn't be prouder!
