Wednesday Wisdom

"Don't say you don't have enough time.
You have exactly the same number of hours per day
that were given
to Helen Keller,
Louis Pasteur,
Mother Teresa,
Leonardo da Vinci,
Thomas Jefferson,
and Albert Einstein."
                            ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

If you don't have a dream,
how can you have a dream come true?

The best day of your life
is the day
in which you decide
your life
your own.

"The tragedy of life does not lie
in not reaching your goals,
the tragedy lies
in not having any goals
to reach."
                ~Dr. Benjamin Mays

Surround yourself with people who believe you can.

The sum total of a lot of little efforts
isn't little.

"To be nobody but yourself
in a world which is doing its best
day and night
to make you like everybody else
means to fight
the hardest battle
which any human being can fight
but never stop fighting!"
                                    ~e.e. cummings

Trust your crazy ideas.

If you can read this
thank a teacher.
(And then speak up (LOUDLY) to help them keep their jobs.
Their schools.
Their funding.)

Live your life on purpose.

With your eyes

  1. Thanks Athena. I get caught thinking I don't need any advice or outside support a lot, which leads to feeling pretty solitary in my endeavors. It's helpful to be reminded that many of us are trying our hardest all the time, and that makes us a collective. I'll be keeping all these quotes in mind as I pick up each project all day long... Cheers.
