O maior conquistador não é aquele que conquista grandes coisas, mas sim o que conquista as pequenas e as torna grandes!

Here's a dozen of my favorite things never to apologize for:

1) Never apologize for acting on your instincts.
2) Never apologize for being passionate.
3) Never apologize for being smart.
4) Never apologize for demanding respect.
5) Never apologize for saying no.
6) Never apologize for not embracing someone else's agenda.
7) Never apologize for disagreeing.
8) Never apologize for your faith.
9) Never apologize for your own sense of creativity.
10) Never apologize for ordering dessert.
11) Never apologize for being funny.
12) Never apologize for living your truth.

Every one of us casts a shadow.

There hangs about us, a sort of a strange, indefinable something, which we call personal influence--that has its effect on every other life on which it falls. It goes with us wherever we go. It is not something we can have when we want to have it--and then lay aside when we will, as we lay aside a garment. It is something that always pours out from our lives . . . as light from a lamp, as heat from flame, as perfume from a flower.

The ministry of personal influence is something very wonderful. Without being conscious of it, we are always impressing others by this strange power that exudes from us. Others watch us--and their thinking and actions are modified by our influence."

"Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity." Ephesians 5:15-16

Words of Wisdom


The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding go out to meet it. 

The point of wisdom is not simply to do well ... it is to do good. 
Patricia Monaghan 

Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain, 

and most fools do. 

Benjamin Franklin
The greatest lesson in life is to know that 

even fools are right sometimes. 

Sir Winston Churchill 

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. 
Theodore Roosevelt

You can only lead others where you yourself 

are prepared to go. 

Lachlan McLean
To wear your heart on your sleeve isn’t a very good plan; 

you should wear it inside where it functions best. 

Margaret Thatcher

To be uncertain is to be uncomfortable. 
To be certain is to be ridiculous. 
Chinese proverb
The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation

applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency.

The second is that automation applied to an inefficient 

operation will magnify the inefficiency. 

Bill Gates

1. I’d be fuzzy, like the essence of love.
2. I’d wag my tail and be at one with the universe. I’ve always wanted a tail.
3. My nose would be like a button on a sock puppet.
4. I’d know what I wanted, when I wanted it. I ‘d bark until I got it.
5. I wouldn’t have germ phobias. I’d welcome touch.
6. My tongue would be glorious.
7. I’d snarl and let the world know it.
8. I’d be enraptured much of the time.
9. I’d sleep whenever I wanted, as much as I wanted.
10. I’d keep strangers away. I’d be permitted to hate.
11. I wouldn’t have to know table manners.
12. I wouldn’t care what was on TV.
13. My hands and feet would be more alike. I’d crawl again
like I did before everything happened.
14. I’d amaze humans for my differences and similarities.
15. I’d love the thrill of the chase.
16. My dreams would not be overpopulated with strange cities
and people who like me though they do not exist
and I wouldn’t miss my bus stop, pulling and pulling the chord in fear,
or care if I were naked on 5th Avenue.
17. I’d belong to the earth. I’d roll in it,
luxuriate in it, eat its bitter wood,
offer it my piss and shit and puke up its grass
and the earth would give back, give back,
it would know me as no clothed human could.
18. I’d ride in the car with my head out the window
and the wind would lick my face.

 From Martha Stewart – Bacon, Egg and Toast Cups.
Try cooked, crumbled sausage in place of bacon or make a vegetarian version with sauteed spinach. Dress things up with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
8 slices white or whole-wheat sandwich bread
6 slices bacon
6 large eggs
Coarse salt and ground pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter 6 standard muffin cups. With a rolling pin, flatten bread slices slightly and, with a 4 1/4-inch cookie cutter, cut into 8 rounds. Cut each round in half, then press 2 halves into each muffin cup, overlapping slightly and making sure bread comes up to edge of cup. Use extra bread to patch any gaps. Brush bread with remaining butter.
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium, until almost crisp, 4 minutes, flipping once. (It will continue to cook in the oven.) Lay 1 bacon slice in each bread cup and crack an egg over each. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until egg whites are just set, 20 to 25 minutes. Run a small knife around cups to loosen toasts. Serve immediately.
Cook’s Note
Standard muffin pans come in 6- or 12-cup size; if baking 6 items in a 12-cup pan, leave empty space in between. Nonstick pans are nice but not essential. Beware of very thin pans, which often lead to burning. Place pans on a baking sheet to make them easier to get in and out of the oven.
