Personal Philosophy

In spite

In spite of the daily struggle
I feel within me a peace that ennobles me
And although the world makes me sad
I renew my belief in it every morning.

Human injustice does not depress me
The shadow of my pain does not stain me
Just as the night does not blacken
The window pane with its passing.

And even though I despair for not comprehending
I hide my wound from whomever wounds me
And have the grace to smile.

And so, for the love in which I have believed,
Suffering like all the rest, I have done my duty
Through the lofty heroism of living.

-Pedro Miguel Obligado


Watch your thoughts;
They become your words.

Watch your words;
They become your actions.

Watch your actions;
They become your habits.

Watch your habits,
They become your character.

Watch your character;
It becomes your destiny.

“No matter how far your climb, you can always dream of something a little higher”.

“Often the only thing standing between a man and his dreams
is the will to do what is necessary and the faith to believe it is possible.”

but to one person you just might be the world”.
