“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.” –
“I am enthusiastic about the future. You can be too. You are living in the most exciting period of time in history.” – Richard G. Scott
