The Cookie Thief
by Valerie Cox

A woman was waiting at an airport one night,
With several long hours before her flight.
She hunted for a book in the airport shops.
Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop.

She was engrossed in her book but happened to see,
That the man sitting beside her, as bold as could be.
Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag in between,
Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene…

Amelia Earhart – “Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn’t be done”

A coragem e tenacidade da primeira mulher a voar sozinha sobre o Oceano Atlântico!

“The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life and the procedure. The process is its own reward.”

Jack Ma – o bilionário que põe os clientes à frente dos accionistas

Maio 20, 2016

Rejeitado 10 vezes pela Universidade de Harvard, rejeitado no concurso para ser polícia e conseguiu até ser o único de 24 candidatos que concorreram para trabalhar num restaurante do KFC, na China, que não foi escolhido!
Tinha tudo para “baixar os braços” e desistir, mas encarou a rejeição como algo “normal”, aprendeu as lições… e fundou um império que vale hoje cerca de 180 mil milhões de euros (tanto quanto a riqueza anual produzida em Portugal)!

William Faulkner – Nobel Prize acceptance speech

Dezembro 8, 2015

“I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet’s, the writer’s, duty is to write about these things.”

A despedida de “Evita” Perón!

Abril 23, 2015

O último discurso da “rainha” dos pobres argentinos. Estava a morrer de cancro (e sabia) e a 1 de Maio de 1952 despediu-se assim dos seus “descamisados”: “Se este povo me pedisse a vida, dava-a a cantar”

Annette Fredskov – 366 maratonas num ano contra a Esclerose Múltipla!

Novembro 12, 2014

“At one point I was really sad about being diagnosed with MS and I was feeling sorry for myself. Some days were very hard and I thought, ‘What am I going to do? I can’t work, I’m so tired and I’m going to sit in a wheelchair. Then I got my act together and I thought, ‘I’m feeling sorry for myself and I’m sick and it’s not the way I wanted things to be, but I can decide for myself what I am going to do from now.'”

The outlet for this enduring commitment to vitality was running — a whole lot of running.

A glutton for punishment, Fredskov decided to run not one but two marathons on her 365th day, spending a total of 10 hours and 45 minutes pounding the roads.

“When I got to the finish line, I had no words, it was overwhelming, my head was empty. The only thing going through my mind was thank you for everything. I just started crying — it was the best day of my life. I have a lot of those but it’s going into history.”
