For Today

"We are exposed to greater danger with our backs turned."  

Seneca

 

 

Facing danger

"The most basic of human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them."  

Ralph Nichols

 

 

Listening

"When you get into a tight place, and everything goes against you till it seems as if you couldn’t hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that’s just the place and time that the tide’ll turn."

Harriet Beecher Stowe

 

Not giving up

"If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."

Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Moving forward

"Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere."

Barack Obama

 

Determination

"It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer."

Albert Einstein

 

Persistence

"Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before."

Jacob A. Riis

 

Determination

"Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel."

Napoleon Hill

Persistence

"It always seems impossible until it's done."

Nelson Mandela

Impossibility

“As you live your values, your sense of identity, integrity, control, and inner-directedness will infuse you with both exhilaration and peace. You will define yourself from within, rather than by people’s opinions or by comparisons to others.”

Stephen Covey
