We all need a little pick-me-up now and then. Instead of reaching for a candy bar, inspire yourself with these memorable lines:
"There's no softer pillow than a clear conscience." John Wooden, UCLA's legendary basketball coach, reminds us to act ethically amid gray areas. If you're unsure how to proceed, let Wooden's comment guide you.
"Good advice is a wise man's friend, but sometimes it just flies on past and all you can do is wave." When we hear wise counsel, we may nod judiciously. But we don't always take it to heart. This line, from the wonderful and perceptive novel Peace Like a River by Leif Enger, encourages us to accept thoughtful advice rather than stubbornly reject it.
