Keep on going

Sometimes we all hit walls, whether it's in our writing, our work, our education, or our personal lives. We may come up against a decision we don't want to face, we may start regretting a decision we made, or we may feel like our lives are spiraling out of control. At times like these, it's good to remember we are not alone. Here are a few quotes that I've found inspiring and encouraging both in my writing and in my life: 


"Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live."
-Dorothy Thompson

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do."
-Mark Twain

"To live in this world you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go."
-Mary Oliver

"I think somehow we learn who we really are and then live with that decision."
-Eleanor Roosevelt

"Your work is to discover your world and then, with all your heart, give yourself to it."
-Buddha

"Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact."
- William James

"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
- C. S. Lewis

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."
- Martin Luther King Jr.
Any others you would like to share?
