Anton Chekhov
“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
Anton Chekhov

Eleanor Roosevelt
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“Social media is just useless garbage until one random, serendipitous, meaningful connection happens and suddenly the whole world shifts.”
Dan Blank
