Time is the most important factor in determining market movements and by studying past price records you will be able to prove to yourself history does repeat and by knowing the past you can tell the future. There is a definite relation between price and time. By studying time cycles and time periods you will learn why market tops and bottoms are found at certain times, and why resistance levels are so strong at certain times, and prices hold around them. The most money is made when fast moves and extreme fluctuations occur at the end of major cycles. ~ W.D. Gann

A message from Dave: I thought you would like this famous quote from St. Paul which has beautiful words, written by St. Paul year 30-AD and still said in wedding ceremonies 2000 years later: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. ~ The Apostle Paul
There is a time for everything; a season for every activity under the heavens, a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. ~ The Bible Eccl 3:1
We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say we follow the admonition of Paul; We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things and hope to be able to endure all things.

Press On, nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb, Education alone will not; The world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are Omnipotent. ~ Anon.
I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner does not always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don't always lead successful lives.

A series of 10 quotes below about winning by Coach Vince Lombardi.
There are 3 things important to every man in this locker room. His God, his family, and the Green Bay Packers (in that exact order of importance).
Show me a good loser and I will show you a loser.
Winning is not a sometimes thing, it's an all-the-time thing. You don't win once in a while, you do not do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
If you can accept losing, you cannot win.
Winning isn't everything, it's the only thing but if you can simply shrug off a loss it means you can never be a winner.
2nd place is meaningless. You cannot always be first but you have to believe you should have been first, that you were never beaten but only ran out of time.
You should always be fired with enthusiasm, or you'll be fired with enthusiasm.
We will chase perfection and chase it relentlessly, knowing all the while we can never really achieve it. However, along the way we shall catch excellence.
We do not pray to win. We only pray to play the best game we can, and to keep us injury free. The prayer we always say after the game is on giving thanks.
Mental toughness is many things; It is humility because it behooves all of us to remember simplicity is the sign of greatness, and meekness is the sign of true strength.

Meekness is being patient and teachable, with an absence of feeling better than others. ~ anon.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. ~ The Bible Matthew 5:5
Some men see things as they are and say "Why?" I dream things that never were and say "Why not?" ~ George Bernard Shaw

Those worlds in space are as countless as all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the earth. ~ Carl Sagan

That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives.
The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there. ~ Carl Sagan
Our goal is one and the same, the pursuit of truth. ~ Matthew McConaughey - Contact the movie

Remember, always give your best. Never get discouraged. Never be petty.
Always remember, others may hate you. But those who hate you don't win unless you hate them.
As I leave you (by resigning the Presidency) I want you to know - just think how much you'll be missing (because) you won't have Nixon to kick around anymore.

Gann
