'Personal development' quotes - from my notebooks

We learn the most from own activity and experiences, successes and failures.

When the chips are down, don't stop and try and pick one up to 'eat' ( or analyze or ponder too long or sit and take the weight off your feet, for too long) - or you will miss your ride . . .
