“Only be you strong, and very courageous, then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
Joshua 1:7-8

 

 

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

 

 

 

“The encouraging thing is that every time you meet a situation, though you may think at the impossibility and you go through the tortures of the damned, once you have met it and lived through it you find that forever after you are freer than you ever were before. If you can live through that you can live through anything. You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, `I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it. If you fail anywhere along the line, it will take away your confidence. You must make yourself succeed every time. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn By Living (1960)

 

 

 

“Genuine forgiveness does not deny anger but faces it head-on.”
Alice Duer Miller

 

 

“As long as you don’t forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy a rent-free space in your mind.”
Isabelle Holland

 

 

“Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”
Mark Twain

 

 

 

“Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were.”
Cherie Carter-Scott

 

 

 

“Forgiveness is like faith. You have to keep reviving it.”
Mason Cooley

 

 

“Only the brave know how to forgive. A coward never forgave; it is not in his nature.”
Laurence Sterne

 

 

“Don’t let what you can’t do stop you from doing what you can do.”
John Wooden

 

 

 

“When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit

Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Success is failure turned inside out,

The silver tint on the clouds of doubt,

And you can never tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems afar.

So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit

“It’s when things go wrong that you mustn’t quit.”
