Jodi Picoult
“It's never the differences between people that surprise us. It's the things that, against all odds, we have in common.”
Jodi Picoult, House Rules

“Understanding” may become “misunderstanding”, if no commitment or no responsibilities are assumed, no specific objectives set, no definite expectations met and common values and interests no longer shared. Mutual understanding may then, against all odds, end up in heartache, confusion and bewilderment. ("Mutual understanding" )”
Erik Pevernagie

Oliver Gaspirtz
“Although I'm an atheist, I try not to crap all over people's belief in God. It may be nothing more than a placebo, a fairy tale that gives the hopeless hope, but sometimes a little hope is all people need to get through the day. Imagine a unit of soldiers under heavy enemy fire. They are told by their superiors to hold their position, even in the face of overwhelming fire power. The soldiers are being told that reinforcements are on the way, and that thought alone gives them the hope and courage to continue fighting, even if ultimately the reinforcements never arrive. I think some people simply need to believe that God is sending them reinforcements, to get through another day.”
Oliver Gaspirtz

“There shall always be that voice that will tell you how you are wasting your time and ability, how you shall fail, how some tried and failed, why your prevailing slips are indications of your future doom, why you are unworthy to dare, why your background mismatches your vision and aspiration, why your personality misfits your mission and how arduous the errand is. You have a choice. You have your thought. You have what burns in you that tells you how you can make it. Though the world may be interested in your success, it is much interested in your slips and mediocrity as-well. Your vision must keep you in your mission. Dare in wisdom. Dare unrelentingly. Ponder!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Emm Cole
“What matters most, is not how my end happens, or if it happens now. What I care about in this instant, is that she knows how much I love her—that I lived long enough to have her love me back.”
Emm Cole, Keeping Merminia

Amit Kalantri
“During your struggle society is not a bunch of flowers, it is a bunch of cactus.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

“Ever notice the word 'rough' in through? There is truth to that, though the way may be rough, we are still able to get through it.”
Anthony Liccione

Robin McKinley
“Swords. That is no faenorn ; that is slaughter.”

The Grand Seneschal shrugged. “The Master did not protest. And, indeed, what weapon could he have suggested that would suit him any better?”

“Fire,” she said.

“He would not,” said the Seneschal. “You know he would not.”
Robin McKinley, Chalice

“Hope is one of our central emotions, but we are often at a loss when asked to define it. Many of us confuse hope with optimism, a prevailing attitude that "things turn out for the best." But hope differs from optimism. Hope does not arise from being told to "Think Positively," or from hearing an overly rosy forecast. Hope, unlike optimism, is rooted in unalloyed reality. Although there is no uniform definition of hope, I found on that seemed to capture what my patients had taught me. Hope is the elevating feeling we experience when we see - in the mind's eye- a path to a better future. Hope acknowledges the significant obstacles and deep pitfalls along that path. True hope has no room for delusion.”
Jerome Groopman, The Anatomy of Hope: How People Prevail in the Face of Illness

“Do not be sad that all odds are against you; be happy that your real purpose is by you”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Life shall surely show you different situations. Yes! the good and the bad situations of life shall come your way. We are definitely bound to meet the ups and downs of life. Sometimes, it may seem that all odds are against you and you may have the real reasons to leave in sorrow but, if all things leave you, never ever leave smile.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

This girl is full of questions.
"Nobody." Or everyone - depends how I look at it. People don't really need to die to be gone.”
Patricia Vanasse, Against All Odds

“When I snatched the gun out of his hand, it fired because the hammer was already pulled back. It made the thunderous sound that the .357 magnum is known for. Even though the sound itself was deafening, it was like beautiful music to my ears. Just a few short seconds ago, the odds were greatly stacked against me. Now the tides had turned. The odds were now stacked against them, and they knew it. When I turned around to face my pursuers, they were in an all-out retreat. All I saw were their backs.”
Drexel Deal, The Fight of My Life is Wrapped Up in My Father

“Keep this in mind, my friends: don’t expect life to love you always! In life, you shall sometimes see true rejection and know the real meaning of rejection, but the more life and the people in your life reject you, all the more, get closer to God, and you shall see and know His real and true love!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Patricia Vanasse
“I've learned that the only things we are in control of are the choices we make at any one given moment.”
Patricia Vanasse, Against All Odds

Ahdaf Soueif
“Self-evident, Sharif Basha thinks, laying down his pen. So self-evident as to be hardly worth saying. But Anna does not think so. Anna, when she sees a wrong, she cannot rest until it has been put right. Besides, she wants to make him happy. Not just happy at home, but happy altogether. He knows she imagines a day when the shadow within which their life together has been lived will be lifted. And she still has confidence in public opinion; that if only people can be made to see, to understand - then wrongs can be undone, and history set on a different course.”
Ahdaf Soueif, The Map of Love

“Success is for those that presses on when they see a wall, find ways around a road block and consistently push boundaries and conquer territories against all odds.”
Oscar Bimpong

“Against all odds, when the 'no' out-weighs the 'yes' faith become the only bridge to your answer”
