The 04/07/13 Joy Jar

6 Apr

Moi, like many, watched the FINAL FOUR game between Wichita State and Louisville. Both teams played their hearts out. Louisville had more points at the end, but what moi observed on the part of both teams was the ‘heart of a champion.’ Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the ‘heart of a champion.’

Before we can talk about a championship, we have to practice like a championship team.
Mike Singletary

Life is a place of service, and in that service one has to suffer a great deal that is hard to bear, but more often to experience a great deal of joy. But that joy can be real only if people look upon their lives as a service and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness.”
Count Leo Tolstoy

Never esteem anything as of advantage to you that will make you break your word or lose your
self-respect.”
Marcus Aurelius

“What a man accomplishes in a day depends upon the way in which he approaches his tasks. When we accept tough jobs as a challenge. . . and wade into them with joy and enthusiasm, miracles can happen. When we do our work with a dynamic conquering spirit, we get things done.”
