“A lot of people go through life doing things badly. Racing’s important to men who do it well. When you’re racing, it’s life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.”

“There are only three sports: bullfighting, mountain climbing and motor racing; all the rest are merely games.”

– Ernest Hemingway

“A lot of people go through life doing things badly. Racing’s important to men who do it well. When you’re racing, it’s life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.”

– Steve McQueen in the film ‘Le Mans’ (1971)

    Hi

    CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX” and the kind words.

    MANY MORE COMMENTS OVERNIGHT (many hundreds already on this blog and many, many thousands and thousands on my other blogs…so hope it’s not slowing down your loading speed!)
    Am having to remove some and so sorry can’t reply individually, but DO try to read as many as possible daily
    so “thanks for the thanx”

    “As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”
    – craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)

    “Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.
    “Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”
    “Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…
    and you may even hit the stars.”
    – craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)

    “When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
    – Leonardo da Vinci

    “If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
    he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
    or Beethoven composed music, or
    Shakespeare wrote poetry.
    He should sweep streets so well
    that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
    here lived a great street sweeper
    who did his job well.”
    – Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

    So instead of trying to reply to each one of “you good people out there”, I’ll just keep on writing

    “If the doctor told me I had six minutes to live, I’d just type a little faster.”
