The Quotes

Andrew Kastning (picture "borrowed" from nordic blog)

During times of great hardships and adversity, heroes are born. Like a white dove, Andrew pulled the proverbial sword from the stone and showed us the light at the end of the tunnel. Here are some of the wise words of that amazing man. Godspeed, Andrew. Godspeed.

"Pain is temporary, pride is forever."

"Great moments are born from great opportunities, tomorrow, we have that opportunity."

"Courage does not mean you are without fear, just that you are willing to face it."
