I came across a YouTube video (go figure) that had amazing quotes in it. I wanted to tweet them all out individually, but they're all greater than 140 characters and I don't use any micro-blogging services greater than Twitter and less than blogging, so I decided to dedicate a full post to the the quotes:
Let me think about the people who I care about the most, and how when they fail or disappoint me, I still love them, I still give them chances, and I still see the best in them. Let me extend that generosity to myself.
Let me remember that my courage is a wild dog and won't just come when I call it. I have to chase it down and hold on as tight as I can.
Let me not be so vain to think that I'm the sole author of my victories and a victim of my defeats.
Let me not think of my work only as a stepping stone to something else. And if it is, let me become fascinated with the shape of stone.
I really found these quotes to be inspiring. If you want to watch the original video, I've embedded it below:
