“Just a month before, Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong had left their colleague, Michael Collins, aboard spaceship Columbia and walked on the Moon…The old carpenter asked me if I really believed it happened. I said sure, I saw it on television. He disagreed; he said that he didn’t believe it for a minute, that ‘them television fellers’ could make things look real that weren’t. Back then, I thought he was a crank. During my eight years in Washington, I saw some things on TV that made me wonder if he wasn’t ahead of his time.” – President Bill Clinton

“To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation, I’m sorry. I’m extremely sorry. We were hoping for an undefeated season. That was my goal, something Florida has never done here. I promise you one thing, a lot of good will come out of this. You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season. You will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season. You will never see a team play harder than we will the rest of the season. God bless.”
Following a heartbreaking upset loss to Ole Miss, Tim Tebow made what has become known as his “Pledge” at a post game news conference. After making this pledge, Tebow and the Gators would not lose another game and went on to win the BCS National championship with a 24-14 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners and their high-powered offense. Tim Tebow epitomizes the fact that we can say absolutely anything we want, but we will always be measured by what we do after the words have left our mouth.

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
Such wisdom. How can we ever attain true satisfaction if we always compare ourselves and our possessions to others. There are no “haves” and “have nots”, rather there are those who appreciate and those who do not. Those who have learned to truly appreciate what they have received will inevitably live a more fulfilling life.
