Sunday Dinner: Accomplishments


The resolve to accomplish your goals is what counts.

If you earnestly put your mind to something,

your brain, your body, your environment-


-will start working toward achieving that end. 

Daisaku Ikeda



“I am only one, but I am one.

I cannot do everything, but I can do something.

And because I cannot do everything,

I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”


Edward Everett Hale



“There is no limit to the amount of good you can do

if you don’t care who gets the credit.”


Ronald Reagan



“Do the best you can in every task,

no matter how unimportant it may seem at the time.

No one learns more about a problem

than the person at the bottom.”


Sandra Day O’Connor



“It’s no use saying, “We are doing our best.”

You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.”


Winston S. Churchill



“To accomplish great things,

we must dream as well as act.”


Anatole France

“If you can’t do great things, Mother Teresa used to say,

do little things with great love.

If you can’t do them with great love,

do them with a little love.

If you can’t do them with a little love,

do them anyway.

Love grows when people serve.”
