Never Say Never

If you never try, you will never fail. You will also never experience the thrill of the challenge nor the joy in reaching your goal.

    Cool Paula, The never stance in life will always be a negative results. Like dormant love in the beginning was in a void, having no being. To be we human must learn to apply words and actions of the positive and obvious intent. LOVE! Though love is just an important word, describing the positive intent of it's action to become manifested as life or being. Agape, Moses
