dieter-f-uchtdorf-large“There may be times in our lives when rising up and continuing on may seem beyond our own ability. . . Even when we think we cannot rise up, there is still hope. And sometimes we just need someone to look us in the eyes, take our hand, and say, ‘You can do it now!'”

800px-Marianne_Williamson,_Miami_Book_Fair_International,_1993“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, fabulous?’  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children of God that is within us.  It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
– Marianne Williamson*


Rocky_balboa“When things got hard, you started looking for something to blame.  Like a big shadow.  Let me tell you something you already know.  The world’s aren’t all sunshine and rainbows.  It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it… You’ve gotta hit as hard as life.  It isn’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.  How much can you take and keep moving forward?  That’s how winning is done… If you know what you’re worth, go out and get what you’re worth.  But you gotta be willing to take the hits.  And not pointing fingers saying you aren’t where you wanna be because of him or her or anybody.  Cowards do that and that ain’t you!  You’re better than that.”
– Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone)*

473px-T_Roosevelt“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the door of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because the ere is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
– Theodore Roosevelt*

“Unless someone can look into the core of your heart, and see the degree of your passion, or look into the depths of your soul and see the extent of your will, then they have no business telling you what you can or cannot achieve.  Because while they may know the odds, they do not know you.  Not do they know the power of your angels.”
