Destiny is not a matter of chance;
  it is a matter of CHOICE.
     It is not a thing to be waited for;
        it is a thing to be achieved. 
.-Jeremy Kitson

Every athlete exercises self-control in all things.
     They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.
So I do not run aimlessly.... but I discipline my body and
        keep it under control, lest after preaching to others
               I myself should be disqualified.

  I believe that is true, rarely
     does a good idea interrupt you.
.-Jim Rohn

But may all who search for you be filled
    with joy and gladness in you.
      May those who love your salvation
        repeatedly shout,
            "God is great!"
