I’m going to try something new here. I intend to have several daily post series, but this one came to mind first.
Why a quote post? There’s so many smart people out there. I want to gather some of their wisdom and share it with you.
For this inaugural post, I’ve chosen the theme of strength and courage.
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
— Mahatma Gandhi, An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth (source: Goodreads)
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure…than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” — Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President Of The United States (source: Inspiration Peak)
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” — Harriet Beecher Stowe (source: Beliefnet)
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” — Lao Tzu (source: Goodreads)
“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” — Albert Camus (source: Goodreads)
“There is a saying in Tibetan, ‘Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.’
No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster.”

“In the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths.”
― Drew Barrymore (source: Goodreads)
Both strength and courage give us so many opportunities to live a full, vibrant life. What have these qualities brought to you?
