Day 43

I am thankful:
197 I saw Sarah when I tried to go to clean the snow off her car
198 WCA was glad for me to help
199 The new drafter is very good
200 I got an interview scheduled for Friday
201 Doug called to give me a job too!
202 I was behind in my homework, I’m almost caught up now
203 I read a chapter first
204 I gave bagels to my friends at WCA
205 I had a full tank of gas to get to Bountiful
206 Saturday is General Conference
207 I had a candy bar in my backpack
208 I got a call about an extra drafting job
209 I’m not as sick as I was last week, especially the headache
210 Libby was lenient

Sonnets by Shakespeare

SONNET 18
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.

--William Shakespeare

SONNET 116
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

--William Shakespeare

Quotes

This is a list of my favorite quotes:
(it is still a work in progress)

“We must become the change we want to see.”
--Mahatma Gandhi

"When you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, to work day and night for it, to give up your peace and your sleep and your time for it;
If only the desire of it makes your aim strong enough never to tire of it; If life seems all empty and useless without it, and all that you dream and you scheme is about it; If gladly you'll sweat for it, fret for it, plan for it, pray with all your strength for it; If you'll simply go after the thing that you want with all your capacity, Strength and sagacity; faith, hope, and confidence, stern pertinacity; If neither poverty nor cold nor famish nor gaunt Nor sickness of pain to body or brain can turn you away from the aim that you want; If dogged and grim, you besiege and beset it, you'll get it!"
--Author unknown

“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk?”
--Albert Einstein

"Believe & Succeed"

"The opposite of courage, in our society is not cowardice, it is conformity."
--Rollo May

"A man’s life is what his thought make of it."

--Disraeli

“A man is what he thinks about all day long.”
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

“If you only care enough for a result, you will almost certainly attain it."
--William James

“If thou canst believe all things are possible to him that believeth.”

"Truth is never in conflict with truth."
--Brother Greenwall 1-31-2008
