Nobody trips over mountains.
It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble.
Pass all the pebbles in your path,
and you will find you have crossed the mountain.

Hi chet bake ur speech is effective and right:
Unfortunately, how many people can live free? If you are an office clerk, you have to stay in office for more than 10 hours a day, you may have 1.5 days off if you are lunck. "Free" is too expensive for someone who don't have money to support themseleve and their family.
thank you cuz u remember me about freedom.
goodluck
our life is like a night mare

When I opened my book this morning, the message below caught my eye.

"Being told you can't do something motivates you to prove them wrong."

Maybe you'll find this inspiring as well... :-)
