Such fun contest that Carol is hosting this month!  There are so many amazing quotes out there and I am glad that I get to read them on different people's posts daily.  One that has always hit home with me is from Mark Twain - It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.  I think I first heard this quote when I was very young and was at a basketball camp.  I wasn't necessarily small for my age, but I was pretty good at basketball, so I played up a few levels and would have to go against the older kids, so compared to them, I was small.  Hearing this quote from the coach gave me the inspiration to fight hard and overcome my lack of size against the bigger kids.

Good morning Michael Jacobs , I am sure that I will not be alone in quoting Mark Twain, in fact, I read another post earlier this morning with a Mark Twain quote.  I hope that your morning is going well my friend.

I was small until 8th grade and then I shot up in height to above average. I had a lot of fight in me those days and surprisingly enough it was rare that I got beaten down Brian England .

Hi Brian,  Great quote and one I try to remind myself of often.  You can take on anything if you make up your mind to do it.

Morning Brian.

I remember being in a wrestling match at the YMCA in Houston.  they put me up against a smaller and younger boy.  In a matter of seconds he had me in a hold that I could not break.  I'll never forget that.  He was an example of what you just wrote about.

There is no substitute for hard work Bob Crane and we have to be willing to go above and beyond at times.

Good morning James Dray , sounds like that kid had heard this quote too and even though you were much bigger than him, he was bound and determined to defeat you.

Well another great quote from Mark Twain, Brian! I love it and it's SO true! Spud Webb, Jay Williams, Mugsy Bogues - all certainly were proof that this quote rings true to many.

Happy Monday!

Hello Brian, Truth is truth and we find much truth in many quotes. To hear those words as a young child and let the words ring true in our head and heart would be inspiring. It clearly worked for you.
