“I will try again tomorrow” … and the next day, and the next day.

Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the
end of the day saying,
“i will try again tomorrow.”
– Mary Anne Radmacher, Live Boldly

“We do not want merely to see beauty… we want something else which can hardly be put into words- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.”
– CS Lewis

As a doctor, let me tell you what self-love does:
It improves your hearing, your eyesight, lowers your blood pressure, increases pulmonary function, cardiac output, and helps wiring the musculature. So, if we had a rampant epidemic of self-love then our healthcare costs would go down dramatically. So, this isn’t just some little frou-frou new age notion, oh love yourself honey. This is hardcore science.
– Dr. Christiane Northrop, Hungry for Change

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.

– Rainer Maria Rilke

It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
– Hugh Laurie

Please don’t expect me to always be good and kind and loving. There are times when I will be cold and thoughtless and hard to understand.
– Sylvia Plath
