Milestones and Encouragement


I can hardly believe I've reached the blog milestone of having 100 friendly followers! Thank you so much to every single person who has ever taken the time to follow, to leave a comment, or to share a little bit of themselves with me online. I couldn't let it pass unremarked, or uncelebrated. So I'd like to offer some encouragement on the blog today, through a few of my favourite quotes. Maybe one or two will touch someone's heart or provide inspiration.

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

"Iron rusts from disuse; stagnant water becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigour of the mind."  Leonardo da Vinci

"A bird does not sing because it has the answer, it sings because it has a song."   Chinese Proverb

"It is never too late to be what you might have been."  Mary Ann Evans (George Eliot)

"Yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream."  Kahlil Gibran
