These are some of my favorite quotations...

"A man without a dream is destined never to fulfill his or her full potential in life.
Never give up on your dream... but take time to smell the flowers on your very
individual journey. Be yourself and count your blessings, then try to make a
difference in the world - however small. Try to shine your own little ray of 
sunshine to make the lives of others easier in some little way. I derive the
greatest pleasure from treading the wildest uncertain path
... and just being me."


MY CREED by Dean Alfange

"I do not choose to be a common man or woman. 
It is my right to be uncommon- if I can.

I seek opportunity - not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and 
dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk -
to dream and build - to fail and succeed.

I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the
guaranteed existence - the thrill of fulfillment to the calm state of Utopia.

 I will not trade freedom for beneficence- nor my dignity for a handout.
I will never cower before any master- nor bend to any threat.

 It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid - to think and act for myself -

enjoy the benefits of my creations and to face the world boldly and say -

"this I have done."


"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost;
that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are
powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?"
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.

You playing small does not serve the World. There is nothing enlightened about
shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to manifest the glory of God that is in us. It's not just within some of us.
It's in everyone. When we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give to
other people permission to do the same.

 As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

 Marianne Williamson and Nelson Mandela.
A man whose generosity of spirit I admire so much.

You've just met ABRAHAM LINCOLN - Elected President of the U.S.A., 1860
"You cannot fail... unless you quit!"

"Create a dream and give it everything you have. You could be surprised just how
much you are capable of achieving. If you don't have a dream...borrow one!
Any what way, you must have a dream."

- Jesse Owens, famous black American sprinter who won four gold medals at
the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.


"By far my biggest strength is my own inner strength and positive
attitude, and a desire to help people to discover this in themselves. 
I believe that we are all ultimately in control of our lives and of who we are.
No dream is unobtainable if we stay positive and focused, seize opportunity,
and are prepared to put in the work to make it happen. Suffering hardship
can be an opportunity for growth, and with the right attitude, a faith in
yourself and in life, and plenty of strength,
you can choose not to be a victim, but a winner.

The strength and faith have many sources - other people, God, and so on,
but the richest spring is within ourselves. We all have it and if we can tap
into it there is nothing that cannot be overcome and nothing that cannot be
achieved. It is not, however, always easy to find, and if I can reach even
one person with this message and it helps them to improve their life,
then I will have achieved something special."


"A Few Little Words Of Wisdom"

 Follow your heart, never surrender your dreams.
Constantly work towards your goals.
Believe in yourself, and always be truthful.

Take time to enjoy life's pleasures.
Keep your mind open to new experiences.
Think before acting, but don't forget the joys of spontaneity.
Make your own decisions.

Look out for yourself but remember that you share this universe with others.
Look for the good in others, Everybody has their own song to sing.
Live each moment to the fullest, for a moment too soon becomes a memory.

Look for opportunities, not guarantees.
Hope for the best.

Give people a chance to love you, for that is how you learn to love.
Live your life for yourself, but always be considerate of others.
Believe in tomorrow, for it holds the key to your continued success.
"Whatever the mind can conceive can be achieved".

- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The secret of happiness is not doing what one likes, but in liking what one does.
- J.M. Barrie
"Success is never ending, failure is never final."
- Dr Robert Schuller

We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things
in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's
evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and
protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the
sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that
their dreams will come true.

Now For the Funny Stuff - ( I think...)

Life can be so serious at times. A final word ( ABF="absolutely bloody final")
to put you in a good mood for
the rest of the day...

The Jokes on you!

Did you hear the one about the South African who built a 4 meter wall to keep thieves
out of his property?  When he and his family returned from a day trip they found
it had been dismantled and stolen!

Van der Merwe was out hunting one day and found a naked young lady
lying on the track, she told him she was game, so he shot her!

An Irish tourist named Paddy broke an arm when he fell over the edge of Kaiti Hill.
He slipped while trying to pick up a four leafed clover. A police spokesperson said
"he may have spent some time at the Irish Rovers sampling the local Guinness"!

The Ministry of Health has revealed that beer contains traces of female hormones.  The
spokesperson stated that this had been proved by giving 1000 men 10 jugs of beer each
and observing them.  All of them started talking nonsense and could not drive.

There's only two things wrong with men, everything they say and everything they do.
Hey cut it out, "chappie"!
Had to put that one in to keep all my female fans (note alliteration) out there happy!

I'll be back!
Hope you enjoyed the laugh with me and they weren't too rude and "un-PC".
Story of my life!

Have a great day!
