    Helen Keller
    “Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.”
    Helen Keller

    C. JoyBell C.
    “Never do a single thing in the anticipation to prove something to someone who has hurt you. If someone has hurt or offended you (whoever that person may be), never perform anything or strive for anything in your life with the mind of proving something to that someone/ to those people. May nothing that you do be done with any thought of them in mind. There is nothing that needs to be proven.”
    C. JoyBell C.

    Edmond Rostand
    “Cyrano: I can see him there---he grins---
    He is looking at my nose---that skeleton
    ---What's that you say? Hopeless?---Why, very well!---
    But a man does not fight merely to win!
    No---no---better to know one fights in vain!...
    You there---Who are you? A hundred against one---
    I know them now, my ancient enemies---
    Falsehood!...There! There! Prejudice---Compromise---Cowardice---
    What's that? No! Surrender? No!
    Never---never!...
    Ah, you too, Vanity!
    I knew you would overthrow me in the end---
    No! I fight on! I fight on! I fight on!
    Yes, all my laurels you have riven away
    And all my roses; yet in spite of you,
    There is one crown I bear away with me,
    And to-night, when I enter before God,
    My salute shall sweep all the stars away
    From the blue threshold! One thing without stain,
    Unspotted from the world, in spite of doom
    Mine own!---
    And that is...
    Roxane: ---That is...
    Cyrano: My white plume....”
    Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac

    Shannon L. Alder
    “The fault in our stars is the inability to see that the world falls in love with fantasy, fairytales and magic in movies. Even religion asks us to believe in the most unlikely of situations. However, despite all the great movies we love, we choose to see so many real life spiritual experiences as delusion, mania, psychosis or wishful thinking. Our society gives great devotion to the arts. However, they solve so many problems with realism, rather than giving into the possibilty of God's plan for a person, that doesn't involve their theological views about how God helps write his children's stories.”
    Shannon L. Alder

    Shannon L. Alder
    “When people want to win they will go to desperate extremes. However, anyone that has already won in life has come to the conclusion that there is no game. There is nothing but learning in this life and it is the only thing we take with us to the grave—knowledge. If you only understood that concept then your heart wouldn’t break so bad. Jealousy or revenge wouldn’t be your ambition. Stepping on others to raise yourself up wouldn’t be a goal. Competition would be left on the playing field, and your freedom from what other people think about you would light the pathway out of hell.”
    Shannon L. Alder

  • #6
    Lailah Gifty Akita
    “The journey of unknown is life journey of graduate students. There are many mountains to be overcome. With hope, patient and courage you can soar high above the mountains and achieve your goals.”
    Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!

  • #7
    Criss Jami
    “I've played Romeo for Juliet
    (But in depth)
    It's vignettes of silhouettes
    (And then read)
    And watched Russian roulette, yeah red Soviet
    Yet doing it simultaneously
    While dropping down shed oubliettes
    Turned around and took truth to the head that
    Love is the ugliest thing too beautiful for death”
    Criss Jami, Killosophy

  • #8
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Everything can be achieved through gradual steps – one small step at a time: overcoming fears, fulfilling dreams... anything you wish to be different from the way it is.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #9
    Lailah Gifty Akita
    “We can overcome the uncertainties in life with courage and hope.”
    Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!

  • #10
    J.R.R. Tolkien
    “Grief is a hone to a hard mind.”
    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Children of Húrin

  • #11
    Lailah Gifty Akita
    “Stay strong in spirit, be patient and you will overcome any situation.”
    Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!

    Lailah Gifty Akita
    “May radiance of your light brighten every dark encounter.”
    Lailah Gifty Akita

  • #13
    C. JoyBell C.
    “Today I wondered why my eyelashes aren't thick enough and why my feet aren't small enough. Then it hit me. Why do we take these insignificant things like millimeters on lashes and shoeboxes and then try to fit ourselves into those stupid molds? Why do I take the beauty that is me, and measure it up to a shoe size? A length of hair on my eyes? Am I not the more wonderful creation, far more great than those stupid things? Why do we take ourselves and desecrate ourselves daily? Pushing ourselves into cubicles because we think we are supposed to fit into them? Are we ice cubes? And suddenly I just don't understand the inadequacies anymore! Because they're not even inadequacies, at all! I will laugh and be beautiful.”
    C. JoyBell C.

  • #14
    Shannon L. Alder
    “If you want to know if someone was meant to be in your future, then remove all the worldly things about them from your mind. Don’t think about their looks, the intimate moments or their personality. Now, think about how they made you feel, how they improved your life and what virtues they possess that push you to want to become better. Did they bring you closer to God? Did they bring you to your life mission? Did they ever lie to you, betray you or made it impossible for you to feel comfortable speaking your mind? When you remove all the shine from a diamond, it becomes a glass rock. What value is it then? See beneath the surface and you will know who your future is with.”
    Shannon L. Alder

  • #15
    Kya Aliana
    “Fear will do one thing and one thing only: hold you back”
    Kya Aliana

  • #16
    Shannon L. Alder
    “God built lighthouses to see people through storms. Then he built storms to remind people to find lighthouses.”
    Shannon L. Alder

  • #17
    Diane Von Furstenberg
    “When you feel humiliated or things like that, you either use it as fuel to change or you get covered by it.”
    Diane Von Furstenberg

  • #18
    Jeffrey Eugenides
    “You never get over it, but you get to where it doesn't bother you so much.”
    Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides

  • #19
    Kendra Thomas
    “Guess what? “Someday” almost never comes around. It gets lost somewhere between the shouda, woulda, couldas of your life. Let go of whatever is holding you back and dare to live – boldly, bravely, and courageously - now. Remember, none of these elements mean you have to be fearless. It’s absolutely okay to be afraid! Acknowledge that part of yourself and then push beyond that fear, whatever it may be. I’m not brave. . . . I’m just taking every opportunity to LIVE.”
    Kendra Thomas

  • #20
    Lailah Gifty Akita
    “We all get knock down in life. We must never stay down. Find the grace to rise up. You have the chance to start again.”
    Lailah Gifty Akita

  • #21
    Amaka Imani Nkosazana
    “There may be something going on in your life right now, that seems like a giant, so big that you think it's impossible to conquer. But, remember no matter how gigantic your problems may be, you have everything in you to overcome. You have the power to say to that mountain move, get out my way. Activate your faith, and watch it happen. The victory is yours!”
    Amaka Imani Nkosazana

  • #22
    Amaka Imani Nkosazana
    “As you travel along the roads in life, there is a certain kind of peace that comes with knowing you're on the right path. And when you are faced with adversity, it challenges you but makes you stronger. The road is not always an easy route. Nevertheless, you must not allow your fears to keep you from reaching the destination.”
    Amaka Nkosazana, Sweet Destiny

  • #23
    Sai Marie Johnson
    “At the moment when the road looks the harshest, and you think you cannot continue on that is when you relearn your first mode of transportation; you crawl. You dig your fingers into the dirt, and propel yourself forward with your toes, but you never give up. You've gotta learn to bend with the sway. You never know what is around the next curve.”
    Sai Marie Johnson

  • #24
    Jennifer DeLucy
    “I've always felt like my calling was to inspire people. And not with famed, epic accomplishments, but with imperfection, struggles and humanity. I want people to read my stories and books and blogs, and look at my life and say, "She should have had nothing going for her. Meager means, questionable looks, no apparent safety nets and an absence of impressive letters after her name. But she followed her bliss anyway. If she can do it, I can do it. I'm not giving up.”
    Jennifer DeLucy

  • #25
    “Never be afraid to offer a smile; sure the risk is that a few foolish people may misinterpret your kindness as weakness, but the sweet reward of their error will be that at least they cannot blame you because you did show your teeth.”
    Johnnie Dent Jr.

  • #26
    Chris Galford
    “Some run the cliffs, and set upon an eagle’s wings. Others mire in the den, and once within, can never leave again.”
    Chris Galford, At Faith's End

  • #27
    Eleanor Roosevelt
    “Do the things that interest you and do them with all your heart. Don't be concerned about whether people are watching you or criticizing you. The chances are that they aren't paying any attention to you. It's your attention to yourself that is so stultifying. But you have to disregard yourself as completely as possible. If you fail the first time then you'll just have to try harder the second time. After all, there's no real reason why you should fail. Just stop thinking about yourself.”
    Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life

  • #28
    Beth Revis
    “I realize the simple truth is that power isn’t control at all- power is strength, and giving that strength to others. A leader isn’t someone who forces others to make him stronger; a leader is someone willing to give his strength to others so that they may have the strength to stand on their own.”
    Beth Revis, Across the Universe

  • #29
    Shannon L. Alder
    “I don’t believe in the Law of Attraction. There were things I wanted in my life that no amount of positive thinking was going to make it a reality for me. However, I have learned to believe in the Law of Tough Love. Life has thrown a dozen tragedies at me. I did what any Christian would do--prayed for the outcome I wanted, but God was tough and only gave me what I needed. I now realize that life is not about fulfilling a wish list; rather a need list. Good and bad experiences are on the horizon. How else does a person change, grow and evolve? And just like any warrior woman, I won’t simply survive-- but thrive!”
    Shannon L. Alder

    Yvonne Pierre
    “Some people simply REFUSE to be happy. If they were stuck in a tunnel you can show them the way out and give them a light, but they will just sit there complaining about how they got there. They are more willing to fight to STAY there instead of fighting to coming out. Okay it happened. Now what? Stop focusing so hard on how you got there, focus on how you're going to get out! Keep it moving!”
    Yvonne Pierre, The Day My Soul Cried: A Memoir
