“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.

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

“If you are faced with a mountain, you have several options.

You can climb it and cross to the other side.

You can go around it.

You can dig under it.

You can fly over it.

You can blow it up.

You can ignore it and pretend it’s not there.

You can turn around and go back the way you came.

Or you can stay on the mountain and make it your home.”

“Today I wore a pair of faded old jeans and a plain grey baggy shirt. I hadn't even taken a shower, and I did not put on an ounce of makeup.

I want to disappear.”
Sierra D. Waters, Debbie.

Jamie Tworkowski
“It is simply a confession that with all that I've seen in the last few years, all the events I've been invited to, and all the people whom I've met, I am less and less impressed by "impressive" things or people who are presented as having things figured out. I am impressed by people who are honest and kind. I am inspired by moments of vulnerability, moments of confession and compassion, moments where someone makes it clear that they are a person in need of other people and someone else makes it clear that the first person is not alone.”
Jamie Tworkowski

Angie Thomas
“Brave doesn’t mean you’re not scared, Starr," she says. "It means you go on even though you’re scared. And you’re doing that.”

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

“We all have an ember of madness that lives inside us. Given sufficient oxygen, it becomes a torch. Carrying a torch is dangerous, but it can save you in your darkest hour. My life has taught me that people break, become unhinged, fall completely apart, and then recover. After all, without mud, there would be no lotus flower.”
Susie Newman, Eating Yellow Paint

“Resolving our fear occurs by walking into that which we fear rather than thinking about how we resolve our fears without the walking.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Viktor E. Frankl
“To be sure, a human being is a finite thing and his freedom is restricted. It is not freedom from conditions, but it is freedom to take a stand toward the conditions... As a professor in two fields, neurology and psychiatry, I am fully aware of the extent to which man is subject to biological, psychological and sociological conditions. But in addition to being a professor in two fields, I am a survivor of four camps – concentration camps, that is – and as such I also bear witness to the unexpected extent to which man is capable of defying and braving even the worst conditions conceivable.”
Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

Sebastien  Richard
“In many ways, the present world system traumatizes us. It keeps us in fear--fear of failure, fear of lack, and fear of man. But praise be to God, the King, because His 'perfect love casts out fear.”
Sebastien Richard, Kingdom Fundamentals: What the Kingdom of God Means and What it Means for You

Wallace Miles
“Overcoming discomfort starts with a decision to begin and then decisions to continue.”
Wallace Miles, UNDERR8TED: The Route That Caught an NFL Dream

“Being a Christian woman does not promise you a smooth sailing neither does it promise a life without calamities. It does not guarantee a life where, when one desires a husband, she'll be granted one immediately. It does not provide an escape from marriage trials nor prevent the prodigality of the kids.”
Ntombizodwa Siyaya, Meeting Mr Right
