Default Inspiration for Today

I found this wonderful quote that really seemed to speak to me today:

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,

"I will try again tomorrow."

Anybody else have a great inspirational quote that speaks to you? I put things like that in a journal that I've started so I'll have them all in one place.
Sail on silver girl, sail on by ~ your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way ~ see how they shine!

Thanks for that!

I found a few that I'd like to share:

"You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there."-- unknown

"You see things; and you say "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?" -- george bernard shaw

"The secret of success is having the courage to begin in the first place"- unknown

"I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which has overcome while trying to succeed"--Booker T. Washington

Here's one I live by:

"Stop wishing for things you complain you have not, start making the most out of all that you've got. "

I heard that at a memorial service one time.. It just stuck with me...
On this rollercoaster ride for the last time!

Thanks for sharing all the words of inspiration. Personally, I like them all. Gretchen, I try to tell my kids the similar thing, unfortunately, kids today are very caught up in materialistic thinking. I worry that despite all my good intentions of putting my kids on the right path in the end I am going to fail.

If you learn from your suffering, and really come to understand the lesson you were taught, you might be able to help someone else who's now in the phase you may have just completed. Maybe that's what it's all about after all...
