Stay Strong and Believe in Yourself 

“Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way. And don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.”

-Richard M. Nixon 


“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

-Harriet Beecher Stowe 


“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”

-Rocky Balboa


“Truth is everybody is going to hurt you: you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for. ”

-Bob Marley


“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.”

-Bob Marley


“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it. ”

-Julia Child


These are a few of my favorite quotes. I think about them when I’m feeling overwhelmed with life. They help me to think positively and encourage me to persevere. Don’t let life conquer you. Rather, win the battle by cultivating positivity, and believing in your ability to achieve greatness. Cheer yourself to the finish line. 

I hope you can draw strength and inspiration from considering these quotes.

    1. Thank you so much.

      It’s so important that we cultivate love for each other. Look at where hate has gotten the world we live in, it’s evident love is lacking. If we practice expressing love toward each other, we could bring some light to the darkness that prevails.

      Have a great day, and I’m so happy you felt the love I have for everyone. Let’s keep loving without reservation. 😊

  1. Yes, I do. It’s part of Emerson’s Rhodora, and reads in part, “…if eyes were made for seeing, then Beauty is its own excuse for being…” It’s on my Merle page. 🙂 This post is awesome. I love the Harriet Beecher Stowe quote; it’s a great quote but also a lovely visual. 🙂

  2. I love quotes. The Rocky Balboa is one of my favorite quotes. Another favorite is “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” That’s a Martin Luther King Jr. quote.
