I recently stumbled across a couple of quotes that caused an immediate “Oh my gosh!” moment.
The reason being, that they applied more to my life over the last few years than I would care to admit. I won’t elaborate on that, but I will share them with you. May they inspire you……. to carry on. 😉
“Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s TRUE strength.”
– Star Hall
And last but not least – this one is literally framed and now sits on my desk:
“It’s not the Critic who counts….It’s not the man who points out how the Strong Man stumbled…. Credit belongs to the man who REALLY WAS in the arena, his face marred by dust, sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs to come up short again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming.
It is the man who actually strives to do the deeds, who knows the great enthusiasm and great devotion, who spends himself on a worthy cause. Who, at best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement. And who, at worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and cruel souls who know NEITHER victory nor defeat.” ……… THEODORE ROOSEVELT
