A professional is a person who can do his best at a time when he doesn't particularly feel like it. - Alistair Cooke (1908 -2004)

Nothing truly stops you. Nothing truly holds you back. For your own will is always within your control.-- Epictetus

People do not lack strength, they lack will.-- Victor Hugo (1802-1885)

When God works in us, the will, being changed and sweetly breathed upon by the Spirit of God, desire and acts, not from compulsion, but responsively. MARTIN LUTHER

The will is a beast of burden.
If God mounts it, it wishes and goes as God wills;
if Satan mounts it, it wishes and goes as Satan wills;
Nor can it choose its rider...
The riders contend for its possession.
Martin Luther (1483-1546)
What though the field be lost?
All is not lost; the unconquerable Will,
And study of revenge, immortal hate,
And courage never to submit or yield:
And what is else not to be overcome?
That Glory never shall his wrath or might
Extort from me. To bow and sue for grace
With suppliant knee.
John Milton. 1608-1674. Paradise Lost. Book I, 105 - 12

His Will though free,
Yet mutable.
John Milton. 1608-1674. Paradise Lost. Book V, 236 - 37

Throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow.-- Norman Vincent Peale (1898-1993)"Webster's Electronic Quotebase," ed. Keith Mohler, 1994.
