Success quotes and sayings
There are some gems in here. I take this as good advice on how to get taken seriously in a male dominated industry without rocking the boat. Whether I like it or not I am different. People pay attention purely because I stand out. I need to make sure the "we have a girl working here" is followed up with "and she was good at her work and no hassle to work with"
Good things to live by... i REALLY need to work on some of these but 3,4,5 and 9 REALLY stand out...although #20 Is my strongest!

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, photographed by Julia Margaret Cameron in 1868. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was an American poet and educator whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", The Song of Hiawatha, and Evangeline. He was also the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy and was one of the five Fireside Poets.
Paul Revere Poem. This poem is Paul Revere telling a friend to prepare the American people that the British are coming having a signal for by land and another for by sea.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (February 27, 1807 – March 24, 1882) was an American poet and educator whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", The Song of Hiawatha, and Evangeline. He was also the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy and was one of the five Fireside Poets. Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine, then part of Massachusetts, and studied at Bowdoin College. After spending time in Europe he became a professor at Bowdoin and, later, at Harvard College. His first major poetry collections were Voices of the Night (1839) and Ballads and Other Poems (1841). Longfellow retired from teaching in 1854 to focus on his writing, living the remainder of his life in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in a former headquarters of George Washington. His first wife, Mary Potter, died in 1835 after a miscarriage. His second wife, Frances Appleton, died in 1861 after sustaining burns from her dress catching fire. After her death, Longfellow had difficulty writing poetry for a time and focused on his translation. He died in 1882. Longfellow predominantly wrote lyric poems which are known for their musicality and which often presented stories of mythology and legend. He became the most popular American poet of his day and also had success overseas. He has been criticized, however, for imitating European styles and writing specifically for the masses.

Presidents Bush, Inspiration, This Men, U.S. Presidents, God Blessed, George Bush, Patriots, Honor Men, People
just the kind of man he is- people may not agree with him but I supported President Bush 100%
Honorable Men, President Bush.
The right stories are never even mentioned. Thumbs up to you, President Bush, you are a man of honor and a true Patriot.
Where was the media on this one??? God Bless George Bush!
What doesn't make the news: I thought this was worth passing along. Mike McNaughton. He stepped on a landmine in Afghanistan Christmas 2002. President Bush came to visit the wounded in the hospital. He told Mike that when he could run a mile, that they would go on a run together. True to his word, he called Mike every month to see how he was doing. Not something you'll see in the news, but seeing the president taking the time to say thank you to the wounded, is inspirational.
say what you want about george bush. i respect anyone who supports our heroes. LOVE this man
