    Inspirational/favorite Quotes

    I'm working on a project where I need some inspirational quotes. I need them to be geared towards making the person feel better about themselves. What are your favorite quotes? My favorite is--

    "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."--Eleanor Roosevelt

    My favorite is:
    "If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair or friendship. We'd never go into business. Well that's nonsense. Sometimes you've got to jump off cliffs and grow your wings on the way down." ~ Ray Bradbury

    Whenever I'm not sure if I can handle something I just think about the last line...

    I don't know who said this one, but one of my favorites right now is:

    "A friend is the person who knows the song in your heart, and sings it back to you when you've forgotten the words."

    By the way Valeriaa - my brother is moving across the country due to a VERY last minute decision tomorrow. He's nervous, but I think that quote will help him out a lot. Thank you for sharing that one at this exact time.

    "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed it's the only thing that ever has." -Margaret Mead

    This is from The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron:

    "Give yourself permission to be a beginner. By being willing to be a bad artist, you have a chance to be an artist, and perhaps, over time, a very good one. When I make this point in teaching, I am met with instant, defensive hostility: 'But do you know how old I will be when I learn to really play the piano/act/paint/write a play?'
    Yes, the same age you will be if you donít. So letís start."


    I loved it so much I copied it out of the book and have it posted -- it helps me when I am in "making excuses" mode.
