I believe in the challenge to accomplish something out of the ordinary. I have to confess I acquired this belief from the book Guinness World Records. That book showed me the value of equal opportunity and competition.
I believe that courage is forged as one endures the fires of life and chooses to face the flames—even when no one is looking.

I believe in liberty.
I believe that within every soul

I call you to no organisational loyalties, but only to love your fellow men…
I call you from dreams of vague beauty and wishful thinking,
