  1. I enjoy your FIve Quotes series. Even when I am familiar with the person there are usually some quotes that are new to me, and others remain inspiring every time I read them."Knowing what must be done does away with fear" reminds me of the value of preparedness and, also, of principles – even if you are uncertain (and fearful) of what will happen in the world around you, knowing yourself and what you value will help you make decisions.

  2. Jim…thanks. I enjoy them, as well. When I come across them or look some up they really inspire me…so I feel the need to share. Thanks for visiting and commenting.
