Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do.
Don’t bother just to be better than your
contemporaries or predecessors.
Try to be better than yourself.
~ William Faulkner ~
Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous,
the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people
with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground.
Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world
better than when you found it.
~ Wilfred Peterson ~

but rather the strength to keep on going forward despite the fear.

is the 18 inches from your head to your heart.

Hope begins in the dark,
the stubborn hope
that if you just show up
and try to do the right thing,
the dawn will come.
You wait and watch and work:
you don’t give up.
~ Anne Lamott ~
When one tugs at a single thing in nature,
he finds it attached to the rest of the world.

~ Theodore Roosevelt ~
Most men give advice by the bucket,
but take it by the grain.
~ William R. Alger ~
Imagination was given to man to compensate
him for what he is not;
a sense of humor to console him
for what he is.
~ Francis Bacon ~
