Pray to God, but keep rowing to shore.
~ Russian Proverb.
Let's dare to be ourselves, for we do that better than anyone else.
~ Shirley Briggs.
I run great risk of failing. It may be that I shall encounter ruin where I look for reputation and a career of honor. The chances are perhaps more in favour of ruin than of success. But, whatever may be the chances, I shall go on as long as any means of carrying on the fight are at my disposal.
~ Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) English Novelist.
