I keep a folder of quotes that I find inspiring. I usually get them for other people’s blogs. I thought I would share a few:
“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” A.A. Milne
I’m pretty sure this is Pooh talking to Piglet, from one of my favorite books, Winnie the Pooh. I saw it on the blog, C’est Christine.
“Walls turned sideways are bridges.” It’s a quote from Angela Davis, the political and social activist and I saw it on the blog, Design Sponge.
And last, but not least, from Mother Teresa, via the blog, House of Edward.
“People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway. What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
