Above and Beyond the Call of Duty: A Truly Marvellous Tale
- Just Around The Bend by Nancy Bronner
Time you enjoyed wasting ......... was not wasted
While seeking revenge
Dig two graves ......... one for yourself.
The best way to predict your future
Is to create it.
- A man with one watch knows what time it is;
A man with two watches is
never quite sure
- Don't look where you fall
But where you slipped.
- Look at life through the wind-shield,
Not through the rear view mirror.
- People may doubt what you say
But they never doubt what you do.
- Be nice to people on the way up
Because you will need them on the way
- Never explain
Your friends do not need it
Your enemies will never
- While seeking revenge
Dig two graves
......... one for yourself.
- Time you enjoyed wasting
......... was not wasted.
- Courage is not lack of fear
But the ability to act while facing fear
- You've got to do your own growing
No matter how tall your father is.
- The best way to predict your future
Is to create it.
A young and successful executive was travelling down a neighbourhood
street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids
darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw
As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into
the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes and drove the Jag back to the
spot where the brick had been thrown. The angry driver then jumped out of
the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car,
shouting, 'What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are
you doing? That's a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot
of money. Why did you do it?'
The young boy was apologetic, 'Please mister ... please, I'm sorry... I
didn't know what else to do,' he pleaded. 'I threw the brick because no one
else would stop...'
With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to
a spot just around a parked car. 'It's my brother,' he said. 'He rolled off
the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up.' Now
sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, 'Would you please help me get
him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for me.'
Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump
in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the
wheelchair, then took out his fancy handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh
scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay.
'Thank you and may God bless you,' the grateful child told the stranger.
Too shaken up for words, the man simply watched the little boy push his
wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home. It was a long,
slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver
never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to
remind him of this message: Don't go through life so fast that someone has
to throw a brick at you to get your attention!
God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we
don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us.

Hurt, anger, confusion and pain
Sometimes it feels like I'm going
These feelings you see are very well known
For my life anymore
feels like a battle zone
This Agony I can no longer bare
Oh please someone help me, I Need Air!
Help me breath again and ease this chest pain
And teach me again how to
live in the mundane
The break of my heart
And the drops of my tears
With wishes of
my loved one here
It's a cold, dark and dismal place
Never again to see ones face
Asking over and over, "Can this be real?"
So at that time, I began to
I asked that you give me some hope with a sign
And what do you know,
it began to shine
The light shown down upon my head
And this is what I
heard being said...
"Stand up, Stand tall
I will not let you fall
I love you with all
It may not make sense
but please do not wince
For one day we will
So this sign to you I send
to know that just around the bend
everything will be alright
And know that I am there
when you think that you can't bare
there will always be a light."
Poem by Nancy Bronner
- The meaning of life is to give life meaning.
- Find something you love to do and you'll never have to work a day in
- If someone seeks advice, give them direction, not correction.
- Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
- To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
- Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative
- Therefore don't be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be
anxious for itself.
- You can't make someone else's choices. You shouldn't let someone
else make yours.
- Even a fool knows you can't reach the stars, but that doesn't stop a
wise man from trying.
- When an affliction happens to you, you either let it defeat you, or
you defeat it.
This quote deserves inclusion:
You can do what you want to do. You
can be what you want to be.
An Italian surgeon finished a brain operation on a patient: despite
suffering a heart attack.
Doctor Claudio Vitale, 59, realised his patient would never recover if he
stopped the operation to seek treatment for himself. So he carried on for 30
minutes in the operating theatre at Cardarelli hospital, Naples, Italy,
until his patient was out of trouble.
Now both the surgeon and his patient are recovering in the hospital's
intensive care unit. 'I knew I couldn't leave the surgery then. I'm not
really a hero, I just did my job,' said Dr Vitale.
Will and Guy have decided that he is a hero and we feel sure that his
patient does also.
