At MAPPs training, session #9. I will finish by November <3 documents from one of my MAPPs foster-to-adopt training sessions

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles… The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who at his worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, 1910, at the Sorbonne in Paris

“I failed my way to success.” – Thomas Edison

“Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.” – William Shakespeare

“One who fears failure limits his activities. Failure is only the opportunity to more intelligently begin again.” – Henry Ford

“Wherever we look upon this earth, the opportunities take shape within the problems.” – Nelson A. Rockefeller

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriet Tubman

“Everything I hold dear in my life came from taking a giant leap of faith into the unknown.” – Me, Daniela Capistrano
