Dear Readers,

Sorry I'm late with this blog post. Darling Daughter 1 shattered her femur Monday and had lengthy surgery this week. We have been at the hospital with her and I lost track of days plus had no access to my computer. 

Here are some of my favorite quotes to encourage you (and me).

"Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are." ~ Chinese Proverb

‎"There are many things in life that will catch our eye, but only a few will catch our heart...pursue those." ~ Unknown

"Too often we underestimate the power of touch, a smile, a kind word, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." Leo Buscaglia

He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Pessimist: A person who believes O is the last letter of ZERO instead of the first letter of OPPORTUNITY." -Author unknown

“The most important word in the English language is hope." Eleanor Roosevelt

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. -Helen Keller

"People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion." Albert Einstein

Found written on a cellar wall where Jews had been hiding in Cologne, Germany during WWII.   "I believe in the sun even when it isn't shining.  I believe in love, even when I am alone.  I believe in God, even when he is silent."

The Dalai Lama says . . .
"Spend some time alone every day."
"Learn the rules so that you know how to break them properly."
"Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it."
"What's my dream worth?"

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? ~~Nelson Mandela, 1994 Inaugural Speech

When the dream is big enough, the odds don't matter. -- Chuck Yeager

The truth which makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear. -- Herbert Sebastian Agar

No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. - Jeanne Bice

Try. Fail. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. Beckett

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”  Margaret Mead

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all. - Dale Carnegie

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
--Robert Schuller

Be the change you want to see in the world. Ghandi (my favorite)
