Quote of the Day – George Weinberg on Not Giving Up

When things are hardest, that’s when you have to press on, cause that means you’re in the lowest portion of the arc and things are going to get better. A good friend of mine is going through some difficult surgery today. I hope the surgeon’s hands are guided with skill and maybe even a little…

Quote of the Day – Thornton Wilder on Soldiers

In the United States, today we observe Memorial Day. A day, where we thank those who have served our country for their sacrifices, sometimes even the ultimate sacrifice.
