Encouraging Quotes

These encouraging quotes have made me think about what really matters, touched a chord in my heart when I felt like giving up, motivated me when I felt lost and overwhelmed, revitalized my spirit, and inspired me to keep on going.

If you have found yourself here at this blog, perhaps you too are looking for a little support and encouragement. Someplace to rest and read and remember your passion, purpose and legacy.  A mini retreat where you can just let go and allow your spirit to be nurtured and cared for. It is my hope that you find some comfort here.

Some encouraging quotes for your own soul…

“If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose,
for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down. “
~ Mary Pickford

~ Thomas Edison

_________________________________

“If I regarded my life from the point of view of the pessimist,
I should be undone.
I should seek in vain for the light that does not visit my eyes
and the music that does not ring in my ears.
I should beg night and day and never be satisfied.
I should sit apart in awful solitude, a prey to fear and despair.
But since I consider it a duty to myself and to others to be happy,
I escape a misery worse than any physical deprivation.”
~ Helen Keller

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world.”
~ Margaret Mead

_________________________________

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”
~ Marianne Williamson

    Three Rules of Life …
    1. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
    2. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
    Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.
    3. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition -
    they somehow already know what you truly want to become.
    B.P

    Veronica, I’m touched by you words. Thanks. I wish that your wisdom will increase.
    I also have some inspirational words which I believe will help others.
    1. Success and failure are next door neighbors separated by a fence called challenge which can only be climbed with a ladder called determination.
    2. Our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. Great people are not different people but they are people who do things diffently.
    3. Anyone who wants to be great must associate with great people and listen to advice from people of great minds.
    4. Sometimes dreams do not come true, what you have to do at this point is to convert your dreams into goals or visions by making plans.
    What you need to move ahead in life lies inside of you. All you have to do is to discover it.
