"Don’t let what you can’t do stop you from doing what you can do."
John Wooden

Spent the drive in to work listening to the John Mayer Trio and Klaatu's "Sub Rosa Subway". I mention this song because it's the story of Alfred Ely Beach, who built New York's (and America's) first subway. If ever there was a great story of someone with a dream who would stop at nothing to realize it, this is it. I've loved this song since I first heard it way back when.


  1. WOW BARRY! I would like to point out that I, Jennifer, am your first "Public Follower"Whot Whot!

    I look forward to your daily quotes, Infact I most often I share them on facebook as I feel that spreading your positive vibe is so important!

    Thank you!

  2. Hi Jennifer, glad you're enjoying my site. Please keep forwarding my quotations to anyone you think will get something from them. After all, that's the reason this blog exists!


  3. Jesus Barry! I guess we were out of touch for too long. Your story about the car accident, and PTS afterward, really upset me. Thank god, you're ok. You'll have to give me the skinny later. Goony-goo-goo

  4. No worries Tony, I'm fine. That which doesn't kill you definitely makes you stronger. I never understood that before, but I do now.
    The difficult times always get better, some-
    times we just have to go through our own storm before the sunrise breaks. And sometimes it just takes a long time. Now I appreciate life more than ever before.
    So glad we're back in touch, bud.
