Sunday Quotes

(Image via We Heart It)

We rely upon the poets, the philosophers, and the playwrights to articulate what most of us can only feel, in joy and sorrow. They illuminate the thoughts for which we only grope; they give us the strength and balm we cannot find in ourselves. Whenever I feel my courage wavering I rush to them. They will give me the wisdom of acceptance, the will and resilience to push on.

Helen Hayes

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Melodie Beattie

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.

Oscar Wilde

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.

Robert Frost

You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated.

Maya Angelou

Kindness trumps greed: it asks for sharing. Kindness trumps fear: it calls forth gratefulness and love. Kindness trumps even stupidity, for with sharing and love, one learns.

Marc Estrin

What we do matters to us. Work may not be the most important thing in our lives or the only thing. We may work because we must, but we still want to love, to feel pride in, to respect ourselves for what we do and to make a difference.

Sara Ann Friedman

A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.

Christopher Reeve

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because some day in life you will have been all of these.

George Washington Carver

  1. I like your quotes.

    Here’s one I collected recently:
    Looking after my health gives me greater hope for tomorrow. – Anne Wilson Schaef

    I also like:
    “Do something wonderful, people may imitate it.”
    -Albert Schweitzer

    (I guess I’m kind of imitating you huh?)
    w

    1. Well, imitation can be a good thing sometimes. But, we do love our quotes and they can say in the fewest words what we struggle to say.

      And greeting cards and comics and cartoons. Hey, I take inspiration where ever I can get it!
