Ain't That The Truth

The only place you'll find success before work is in the dictionary.

I found these wise words on a calendar at the office where I work.    

The hard work necessary for success renders the prize all the more precious.  I trained hard to prepare myself for a YMCA biathlon a few years ago.  The medal was much less a reward than the satisfaction I felt when I crossed the finish line.

Would success mean anything if we didn't have to work for it?

Don't think so. I suspect it would then be called "luck."

GULLY: You're oh so right, Gully! Luck is the easier way to get things but it just doesn't provide the sense of achievement that working for what we want does.

Bravo! Bravo!

Nope, it wouldn't mean a thing if we didn't work for it. Very good point my dear.

I hope your Saturday is wonderful :)

SARIE: Work is admirable but I'm sitting with my feet up and there's something grand about that too!!!

I hope your Sunday is a Funday!
