I thought today about some of the stuff that we say….and I didn’t know where it came from. That leads to quotes, and amongst all that is internet, I found these.
My life theme……
“Instead of giving myself reasons why I can’t, I give myself reasons why I can.”
“A bend in the road is not the end of the road… unless you fail to make the turn. “
I have to admit that I have a real special fondness for this poem. I’d never heard it before, but based on my kickboxing/batting practice regimen to expel the stresses and disappointments of life? This makes me smile.
“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”
~ Dr. Seuss
“One has to remember that every failure can be a stepping stone to something better.”
~ Col. Harland Sander, inventor and founder, KFC
“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”
~ Alexander Graham Bell
“He who refuses to embrace a unique opportunity loses the prize as surely as if he had failed.”
~ William James
“When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. “
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
“If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down. “
~ Mary Pickford
