In addition to the one above, here are a few more that I have out and about now:
Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers ‘grow, grow’
-The TalmudTrust yourself. You know more than you think you do.
And the following excerpt from a Harvard commencement address given by J.K. Rowling (of Harry Potter fame) that I clipped out of a magazine:
The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive. You will never truly know yourself, or [your] strength…, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift…. It is painfully won, and it has been worth more to me than any qualification I ever earned.
Wow, great words from one who faced many failures herself, yet forged ahead and succeeded in a very big way.
May these words lift your spirits too.
Have a great day.
