The Wisdom of Master Splinter

Master Splinter Quote: We Choose What Holds us Back, and what Moves us Forward

“We choose what holds us back…
…and what moves us forward.”

~Master Splinter

Lord, help me to be great

Saying this prayer, OUT LOUD, (most) every night, is the single most important contributor to making me a (somewhat) better person than I used to be.

Lord, help me to be great -- or at least better.


Lord, help me to be:
Courageous, Selfless, Loving,
Patient, Peaceful, Humble,
Hard working and Forgiving.

Help me to be a great husband,
a great father, and a great human being.

And help me to always remember.


Every small epiphany I have in life, I ‘assign’ to this prayer… Every time I say I’ll pray for someone, I assign it to “always remember”…. So every time I say it, in my heart, those folks share a piece of my prayer…

I also wear, thanks to my wife, a necklace with the word “REMEMBER” on it — so I remember to never forget ;).

What are you gaining?

life quote: all that is gained in life is lost in death“All that is gained in life;
is lost in death.

Surviving the Loss:

We gain many things in our time, which are used in our test;
….for all we accrue in a life — we will lose in our death.
Yet much perspective can be gained, as one becomes aware;
That the things we have which survive are the ones we share.

Just Reasoning

Even when there seems to be no reason, there's another reason to pray

“Even when there seems to be no reason.. is just one more reason to pray.”

Are you Complaining, Waiting, or Changing?

While you're busy complaining that others don't change; they're busy waiting for you to do the same!

“While you’re busy complaining…
…that others don’t change;
They’re busy waiting…
…for you to do the same.”

A Reflection on Us:

Easy wins rarely make our history;
it’s a story heard and told by no one.
The real measurement of a victory;
lies in the adversity we grow from.

“The Extended Hand has a tremendous Butterfly Effect.”

A Reflection of Us:

and a single moment is not made of time.
