Excuses Are Cop-Outs!

“I attribute my success to this – I never gave or took any excuse.”

~ Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) was an English social reformer and is attributed to be the founder of modern nursing. She came to prominence as the manager of nurses during the Crimean War (1853-1856).

Because of that choice, you can decide to either go left or go right, in the full knowledge that whatever direction you choose, you will make the best of it, you will embrace it, you will welcome it, and if need be, through your sheer will and determination, you will change the course of that direction so that in the end, it leads you in the most positive of places.”
