“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that
the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
John F. Kennedy

Grateful on this Veterans’ Day!
“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war,
no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive
the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.”
President George Washington
“We know from personal experience that, through training, even tasks that seem extremely hard initially can become almost automatic.
…through sustained, disciplined practice one’s application of attention, which initially involves a great deal of effort, subsequently gives way to a limited mastery in which some effort is still required, and finally the task becomes effortless and spontaneous.”
the Dalai Lama
