I love quotes. Sometimes that’s all that will get me through a really tough day. Here’s some of my favorites that may spark some thought in you.
“There are situations better solved by faith than by facts”
“When you wake up, get up. When you get up, do something.”
“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in. Let it come in. We think we don’t deserve love, we think if we let it in we’ll become too soft. But a wise man named Levine said it right. He said, ‘Love is the only rational act.’”” – “Tuesdays with Morrie” (one of my favorite books! )
“There’s a crack (or cracks) in everyone…that’s how the light of God gets in.” – Eat Pray Love (another of my favorite books)
“There is so much about my fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy with. I can select what I can read and eat and study. I can choose how I’m going to regard unfortunate circumstances in my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities. I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to others. And most of all, I can choose my thoughts.” – Eat Pray Love
“Arrive expecting to push yourself to the limit; leave with no regrets” – my favorite quote that gets me through workouts and even schooling
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” -Eleanor Roosevelt
“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” – Audrey Hepburn
“No matter how hard it was, or how much I didn’t want to run that day, I always felt better afterward. Some days, that’s all that got me out the door. The best part was at the end of every day, when I had a sharp sense of having accomplished something measurable and definable. I won a little victor every day that nobody could take away from me. I don’t have that sense when I don’t run.” Kathrine Switzer “Marathon Woman” another great book for runners!
“Ask yourself, ‘Can I give more?’ The answer is usually yes” -Paul Tergat
