Words to Live By

I love good quotes. From time to time, friends and co-workers will pass along some words of wisdom that really resonate and I love nothing more than sharing those bits of advice and truth with the people who need them most.

This week, we thought it might be nice to share some thoughtful words that others have imparted that may help us stay strong when it’s not so easy and feel connected to others when it could fee like we are alone.

We encourage you to share your own favorite quotes and words of wisdom you’ve uncovered along the way here in the comments or on our Facebook page. Be sure to jump into the conversation and don’t forget to attribute them so we know who to thank for the thoughtful advice.

On Strength

  • With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
     
  • Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such. ~ Henry Miller

On Perseverance and Overcoming Challenge

  • Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity. ~ Louis Pasteur
     
  • Problems are not stop signs. They are guidelines. ~ Robert H. Schuller
     
  • Joy is of the will which labors, which overcomes obstacles, which knows triumph. ~ William Butler Yeats
     
  • Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. ~ Helen Keller

On Support & Remembrance

  • Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand. ~ Anonymous
     
  • The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched; they must be felt with the heart. ~ Helen Keller
     
  • Surround yourself with people who provide you with support and love and remember to give back as much as you can in return. ~ Karen Kain
