    Hi, Motivational. Thanks for your encouraging motivations shared to us so far. The motivation you quote in your email of point 6. Whenever you fall, pick up something. -Oswald Theodore Avery, Canadian-born U.S. physician, is just simple yet hitting the target.

    Perhaps the more simple the quotation, the basic core will it touch (in terms of language, words, and deep meanings / life philosophy).

    Keep up your good sharing of good motivational phrases yeach.
