"You cannot build a reputation on what you are going to do any more than you can claim success by what you nearly did. Whereas, one needs the knowledge how to get things done, only steadfast determination and action will bring about eventual achievement. Determination will never be found in dependency upon others or in the back streets of where you fear to tread.
So don't wait for a shaft of light to appear at the end of your dark tunnel before you move forward with your life. Just open your eyes, broaden your mind, widen your horizon, embrace all possibilties then, stride down there purposefully and light the thing yourself!" William Forde: April 10th, 2015.
