Today I will share with you a few quotes that I believe will be an inspiration to those of you going through a rough time, or those in that kind of lull one feels during the holidays when one takes stock and reflect, sort of like I am doing now.
Here are the quotes that inspired me and that I hope will inspire you too.
I hold it true, whate’er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
From Alfred Lord Tennyson‘s poem In Memoriam
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.
Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
If you are going through hell, keep going.
There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; or you can live as if everything is a miracle.
Two more days till Xmas, the time of giving and receiving gifts of peace and love. Please join me in thinking of the millions that will not have any Xmas this year, those who are sick, hungry, watching their children sleep without any dinner, no shelter, no possessions, those with nothing to give but their smiles and their hopes of a better future. Let’s all stop our mad Xmas shopping and eating for a minute and think of them, the less fortunate, and let’s glance upwards and thank the heavens and all the Gods for what we have and what we take for granted every day.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blogs and comment on them.
