    If you want to succeed in life, don't let the petty things in life get you down, if you get knock down, get up; if someone put a stumbling block in your path go around it, because there's no victory in giving up. I might give in, but I want give up.

      How true.  I call them speed bumps in the road of life.  You can't give up.  You have to keep on keeping on and be the absolute best you can be.

    lyrics

          My quote is from Wish You Were Here  by Pink Floyd. Profound poetry set to music.
          Another from them: Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way.
          Some of my family emigrated from the UK. I can sense that in me sometimes - quiet desperation. I have to remind myself at that point to go yell!

          OK I'm going to fire up the stereo! :-)
