SHINE

I saw all of a sudden that there were sparkles on the surface of the ocean. I felt peace and excitement at the same time.

Fortunately, my tiny Canon was with me.

Nature is terrific and life is wonderful (despite some problems we all have)!

Victory quotes

Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.

Winston Churchill

Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.

George S. Patton

Invincibility lies in the defence; the possibility of victory in the attack.

Sun Tzu

Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory.

George S. Patton

You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.

J. Donald Walters

There is no substitute for victory.

Douglas MacArthur

The idea that a war can be won by standing on the defensive and waiting for the enemy to attack is a dangerous fallacy, which owes its inception to the desire to evade the price of victory.

Douglas Haig

Where there is unity there is always victory.

Publilius Syrus

Quotes about war

We have war when at least one of the parties to a conflict wants something more than it wants peace.

Jeane Kirkpatrick

I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.

Alexander the Great

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.

John Stuart Mill

The great questions of the day will not be settled by means of speeches and majority decisions but by iron and blood.

Otto von Bismarck

Once we have a war there is only one thing to do. It must be won. For defeat brings worse things than any that can ever happen in war.

Ernest Hemingway

The way to win an atomic war is to make certain it never starts.

Omar N. Bradley

What do I need to remember?

I need to remember to pursue happiness!

I need to remember to be active and creative!

I need to remember to love, to value, to enjoy!

When I start a sentence I need to remember to finish it.

By the way, this is why all sentences here are short.

Luckily, I do remember that a New Year is coming soon!

I hope that it will be a good year, that it will bring health, peace and happiness.

I do remember to thank God for every minute of my life!

The last step.

Long time ago I saw a painting. It was just a declining brown line on the white canvas.The author of the painting explained to me that it was a woman with a dog. Both the woman and the dog were outside the painting.

I am not an artist. I’ve never played golf. But I enjoyed walking two courses in the early mornings and in the evenings and seeing how people played golf for many years.

Here, in Pocono Manor, the last step of the golf course is very difficult for many players. It has a pond in the middle of it. Each season many golf balls find their peace in the pond.

I find my peace just looking at the pond at any weather. It’s always beautiful, but it was magical one day when there was fog in the area. Unfortunately, I did not have camera at that time.

However, I have camera now and I want to share with you my photo of the pond. I took the photo from the Manor Drive. Golfers are shooting from the left (outside of the photo) and the last hole of the course is on the right (you can easily imagine it).
