    Using all my talents has always been a guiding principle for me – it pleases Life, benefits society but most of all, it gives each individual a sense of purpose and direction. Nice post!

    Love that quote! For us guys, the famous basketball coach, John Wooden, once said something similar: “Success is the peace of mind you gain from knowing you did the best you could with the talents God gave you.”

    […] The Writing Sisters shared this quote. It’s my new motto and is similar, but much more inspiring than my old motto “All we can do… is all we can do.” […]
