I love this Quote from Milton Berle, who passed away on this day in 2002. It is just another reminder that it is up to us to make things happen in our lives! Don't just sit back and wait for good things to come your way, jump in and set some goals, and then some tasks to take that will make your dreams happen. Hard work and perseverance pay off!
