People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

We have bigger houses, but smaller families.
More conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees, but less sense.
More knowledge, but less judgement.
More experts, but more problems.
More medicines, but less healthiness.
We've been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet
the new neighbor.
We build more computers to hold more
information to produce more copies then ever,
but have less communication.
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods,
but slow digestion.
Tall men, but short character.
Steep profits, but shallow relationships.
It's a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.

Navy Seals...Lone Survivor.


“Been around the world twice, talked to everyone once, I’ve seen two whales fuck, been to three world fairs, I even know a man in Thailand with a wooden cock. 

I’ve pushed more peter, more sweeter, and more completer than any other peter-pusher around. 

I’m a hard-bodied, hairy-chested, rootin, tootin, shooting, parachuting, demolition double cap crimping Frogman. 

There ain’t nothing I can’t do.  

No sky too high, no sea too rough, no muff too tough. 

Learned a lot of lessons in my life. 

Never shoot a large caliber man with a small caliber bullet. 

Drove a lot of trucks. 

Even those big motherfuckers that bend and go TSSHITT TSSHITT when you step on the brakes. 

Anything in life worth doing is worth overdoing. 

Moderation is for cowards. 

I’m a lover, I’m a fighter, I’m a UDT/SEAL Diver. 

I’ll wine, dine, intertwine and then sneak out the back door when the refueling is done.  

If you’re feeling froggy, then you better jump because this Frogman has been there, done that and is going back for more. 

Cheers, boys.”
