Prov 14.1

(Last one for now. I LOVE quotes. We studied a quote a day when we homeschooled. It's one of my favorite things. Thank you for the thread. Now we need one on idioms.)

"Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

(Good Quotes all, I'm glad some of you liked the idea.)
