- Brett Favre

And having a strong family, you know we've lost some
members of our family and had some setbacks,

Those things are so important they enable you to go on.
- Brett Favre

Sometimes you get caught up in what's going on around you.

every bit of adversity I've faced up until the last
year and a half is adversity I brought upon myself -
or the opposing teams have given me.

I would have said that she was a lot tougher than me
and most guys would probably say that about their wives
and it's probably true in most cases.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It does not dishonor others,

but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

for future generations.
Create the legacy of a better world.

to represent the kind of legacy
you want to leave to future generations.

Today would be a wonderful day

being gentle with yourself.
Let life be a dance,
and choose the kind of
dance you want for today -
perhaps a gentle loving dance.

a moment of serenity among the challenge -
a time for repose and contemplation.
