Impossible is Nothing.

Life is what you make it.  Choose to see everything differently.

"Veni, vidi, vici"
I came, I saw, I conquered.
is a Latin sentence reportedly written by Julius Caesar in 47 BC as a comment on his short war with Pharnaces II of Pontus in the city of Zela (currently known as Zile, in Turkey).

I like that Caesar felt so positive about a tiny war that he could so perfunctorily and succinctly sum it up with three short words.

It is referenced in the 1940s song "These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)" sung so beautifully above by Ella Fitzgerald and from the title song of my favorite musical based on a book MAME ("You came, you saw, you conquered") and absolutely nothing is the same - written by the fabulous Jerry Herman.
