To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
When Bessie Coleman was a child, she wanted to be in school – not in the cotton fields of Texas, helping her family earn money. She wanted to be somebody significant in the world. So Bessie did everything she could to learn under the most challenging of circumstances.
At the end of every day in the fields she checked the foreman’s numbers – made sure his math was correct. And this was just the beginning of a life of hard work and dedication that really paid off: Bessie became the first African-American to earn a pilot’s license.

I have not worked with much Butternut what surprised me is the contrasting sap wood, the old school name for this wood is White Walnut. #woodworking #diningtable #bookmatch #table #butternut #liveedge #glueup #bessy #clamp
“I hope that anyone out there who does not come in the package people say you should. Keep fighting for it. Flip those rocks over. Keep pushing, keep turning. You can do it. You build your own boxes, not people. So knock that thing away, and do you!” -Actress/Singer Queen Latifah, winner of Best Actress in a limited series, for her role as Bessie Smith in HBO’s Bessie, at The 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Award, January 30, 2016.
