Quote
"No man is more unhappy than he who never faces adversity, for he is not permitted to prove himself." - Seneca

"The greatest thing a man can possibly do in this world is to make the most possible out of the stuff that has been given to him. This is success, and there is no other. I t is not a question of what someone else can do or become which every youth should ask himself, but what can I do? How can I develop myself into the grandest possible manhood?" - Orison Sweet Marden

Do you speak German fluently?

A lady came to my church's weekly food pantry (which used clothing as well) who told the ladies there that she couldn't understand them because she only speaks German (which may or may not be true).  I told the ladies that I would have a simple set of rules translated into German, and with my one year of German in high school, I could show and read to her these rules next week.I translated using Google from English into German.  Are any of you guys able to check my Google translation for…See More
