Quote of the Week

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

What we've done and what we've yet to do pales in comparison to who we are inside.  Our beliefs and values temper our life experiences and shape the person that we become.
