I love to collect uplifting quotes, poems, songs, scriptures,etc. and I wanted to have a page to share some of these thoughts with you. I hope you enjoy them!
Too often we are scared.
Scared of what we might not be able to do.
Scared of what people might think if we tried.
We let our fears stand in the way of our hopes.
We say no when we want to say yes.
We sit quietly when we want to scream.
And we shout with the others,
when we should keep our mouths shut.
We do only go around once.
There's really no time to be afraid.
Try something you've never tried.
Enter a triathlon.
Write a letter to the editor.
Demand a raise.
Call winners at the toughest court.
Throw away your television.
Bicycle across the United States.
Speak out against the designated hitter.
Travel to a country where you don't speak the language.
You have nothing to lose
everything to gain.
--From a Nike ad
"If you have built your castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now, put the foundations under them..."
For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea behold, the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors."
