Seeing results gives me drive. It has gotten to the point I HATE missing a workout day but hell... Life happens, what can you do? All you can do is do a little extra when you make it back to the gym. I want to keep moving forward and get to my goal one step at a time.
O pássaro fugiu, ficaram-me as penas
da sua asa, nas mãos encantadas.
Mas, que é a vida, afinal? Um vôo, apenas.
Uma lembrança e outros pequenos nadas.
Passou o vento mau, entre açucenas,
deixou-me só corolas arrancadas…
Despedem-se de mim glórias terrenas.
Fica-me aos pés a poeira das estradas.
A água correu veloz, fica-me a espuma.
Só o tempo não me deixa coisa alguma
até que da própria alma me despoje!
Desfolhados os últimos segredos,
quero agarrar a vida, que me foge,
vão-se-me as horas pelos vãos dos dedos. • Cassiano Ricardo Leite (1895 - 1974)
“Any fool can destroy trees. They cannot run away, and if they could, they would still be destroyed, chased and hunted down as long as fun or a dollar could be got out of their bark hide, branching horns, or magnificent bole backbones.”
- John Muir
John Muir April 21, 1838 – December 24, 1914) also known as "John of the Mountains", was a Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher, glaciologist and early advocate for the preservation of wilderness in the United States. His letters, essays, and books describing his adventures in nature, especially in the Sierra Nevada, have been read by millions. His activism has helped to preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and many other wilderness areas. The Sierra Club, which he co-founded, is a prominent American conservation organization.
John Muir has been considered "an inspiration to both Scots and Americans".Muir's biographer, Steven J. Holmes, believes that Muir has become "one of the patron saints of twentieth-century American environmental activity," both political and recreational. As a result, his writings are commonly discussed in books and journals, and he is often quoted by nature photographers such as Ansel Adams. "Muir has profoundly shaped the very categories through which Americans understand and envision their relationships with the natural world," writes Holmes. Muir was noted for being an ecological thinker, political spokesman, and religious prophet, whose writings became a personal guide into nature for countless individuals, making his name "almost ubiquitous" in the modern environmental consciousness. According to author William Anderson, Muir exemplified "the archetype of our oneness with the earth", while biographer Donald Worster says he believed his mission was "...saving the American soul from total surrender to materialism." On April 21, 2013, the first ever John Muir Day was celebrated in Scotland, which marked the 175th anniversary of his birth, paying homage to the conservationist. - Wikipedia **************************

Thomas Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb.
When a reporter asked Edison how he felt about failing 1,000 times, he responded: "I didn't fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps." Dian Fossey, a primatologist and conservationist, spent roughly 18 years of her life doing an extensive study of mountain gorilla groups in Rwanda. In an effort to protect them, she paid dearly with her life.
Ultimately, if man can invest so much time, resources and even their lives in discovering the wonders of nature, how can we ignore the God Who created all nature? Why can't we invest so much more on the God of nature? (Col. 3:2, Rom. 1:25, Jer. 2:13)
