I keep a file on my computer of favorite quotes that I reference quite a bit when feeling down, or need some inspiration at home, work or just in general.
I've only shared them with one person, but I thought I would post some of my favorites to give me a little "pick me up" this evening.
“To be nobody but myself, in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.” - E.E. Cummings
"To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. "
—Joseph Chilton Pearce, author
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us." - Helen Keller
Enthusiasm is the best protection in any situation. Wholeheartedness is contagious. Give yourself, if you wish to get others.
- David Seabury
