Resilient

“Just like moons and like suns,
with the certainty of tides,
just like hopes springing high,
still I’ll rise.” 
-Dr. Maya Angelou 
“Still I Rise”

Optimist

“I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams.” -Doctor Who

Give Thanks

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” -Albert Schweitzer

Trials

“As for courage and will – we cannot measure how much of each lies within us, we can only trust there will be sufficient to carry through trials which may lie ahead.” -Andre Norton

The Valley

“This hard place in which you perhaps find yourself is the very place in which God is giving you opportunity to look only to Him, to spend time in prayer, and to learn long-suffering, gentleness, meekness – in short, to learn the depths of the love that Christ Himself has poured out on all of us.” -Elisabeth Elliot

The Individual

“While we have the gift of life, it seems to me the only tragedy is to allow part of us to die – whether it is our spirit, our creativity, or our glorious uniqueness.” -Gilda Radner
