Just a Little More

“Sometimes, all it takes is a little more strength, a little more courage, a little more interest, a little more determination. Not a lot more, just a tiny bit more than you had before to make it through, and suffer no regrets.”

~ Quotes by Apoetsbrain

Adulthood

“At some point, we come to recognize that adulthood is not about the freedom to do and undo as we please. Rather, adulthood is a call to realization.

Realizing that your decisions now can affect a hundred generations ahead of you. Realizing that your habits now can seep into your blood, and spread across your generational bloodline like wild fire.”

~ Apoetsbrain Original

Small Trouble

“A Small trouble is like a pebble. Hold it too close to your eye and it fills the whole world and puts everything out of focus. Hold it at a proper distance and it can be examined and properly classified. Throw it at your feet and it can be seen in its true setting, just one more tiny bump on the pathway of life.”

~ Celia Luce

The Cold and Timid Souls

“The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, who strive valiantly; who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spend themselves in a worthy cause; who at the best, know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if they fail, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

— Theodore Roosevelt

The Lesson I Grew Up With

One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.”

Michelle Obama

I Refuse to Believe It

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality…. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

~ Martin Luther King, Jr. Continue reading I Refuse to Believe It

Silly Ant

“The one whose life is centered only around gathering riches and indulging all worldly pleasures is like an ant inside someone’s house who worked all through the day to gather sugar, and ant meat, and when evening came, the home owner swept everything off both ant and ant meat alike. A destruction with no discrimination.”

Grand Hands

“There comes a time when you realize that your life is no longer in any man’s hands. Not in your parents, or your siblings, or friends, not in yours, but in the hand of God who does as He wills. And then you stop fighting and kicking against the pricks. To gain that smoother Iife of peace, in surrender. Then all you can say is:

“Not my will Lord, but yours be done.”
