You have power over your mind – not outside events.
Realize this, and you will find strength. Marcus Aurelius

There are two ways of exerting one’s strength: one is
pushing down, the other is pulling up. Booker T. Washington

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop
your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide
not to surrender, that is strength. Arnold Schwarzenegger

Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my
strength lies solely in my tenacity. Louis Pasteur

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A lady came in for a routine physical at the doctor’s office . “Here”, said
the nurse, handing her a urine specimen container. “The bathroom is over
there on your right. The doctor will be with you in a few minutes.” A few
minutes later the lady came out of the bathroom with an empty container
and a relieved look on her face. “Thanks! But they had a toilet in there,
so I didn’t need this after all!” 😳😳😳

Answer: 1) par + king = parking
2) cow + lick = cowlick
3) far + thing = farthing
4) dam + nation = damnation

Monday’s Quizzler is…….
Henry has been caught stealing cattle, and is brought into town for justice. The judge is his ex-wife Gretchen, who wants to show him some sympathy, but the law clearly calls for two shots to be taken at Henry from close range. To make things a little better for Henry, Gretchen tells him she will place two bullets into a six-chambered revolver in successive order. She will spin the chamber, close it, and take one shot. If Henry is still alive, she will then either take another shot, or spin the chamber again before shooting.

Henry is a bit incredulous that his own ex-wife would carry out the punishment, and a bit sad that she was always such a rule follower. He steels himself as Gretchen loads the chambers, spins the revolver, and pulls the trigger. Whew! It was blank. Then Gretchen asks, “Do you want me to pull the trigger again, or should I spin the chamber a second time before pulling the trigger?”

What should Henry choose?
