Thread and Paper


ps:   “It takes courage to be successful.  It is far easier not to be successful.  Misery will always have company.  Success breeds contempt.  If you don’t want to make waves, be mediocre, be normal and fit in. And if you’re more concerned about people than you are God, than neutralize everything He put in you, just fit in with everybody else.  Dress like ‘em.  Walk like ‘em.  Act like ‘em.  Eat like ‘em.  Go where they go.  Think like they think.  Do what they do.  And once you’ve neutralized your unique’ness, you don’t need courage.  It takes courage to be different.  It takes courage to go where you’ve never gone before.”  “It takes courage to get you outside of the box.”  “It takes courage to win.  People don’t talk about people that don’t win.  If you win, they’re gonna talk about ya.  Do you have the courage to stand there though the storms keep raging and the people get to talkin’ and you stand there and say I’ve come too far to turn around?”  “Do you have the courage?”  Bishop T. D. Jakes
