I love quotes. :)

Heres a few:

"Someone was hurt before you.....beaten before you; humiliated before you; raped before you; yet someone survived."
~Maya Angelou

"You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise."
~"Still I Rise" Maya Angelou

"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe."~Anatole France

"The willow knows what the storm does not: that the power to endure harm outlives the power to inflict it."~Blood of the Martyr

"When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on."~Franklin D. Roosevelt

"The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who dont do anything about it."~Albert Einstein

"“Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We're afraid.”
“Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We will fall!”
“Come to the edge.”
And they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew."
~Guillaume Apollinaire

" "At fifteen life had taught me undeniably that surrender, in its place, was as honorable as resistance, especially if one had no choice." ~Maya Angelou

"Keep a grateful journal. Every night, list five things that happened this day that you are grateful for. What it will begin to do is change your perspective of your day and your life. If you can learn to focus on what you have, you will always see that the universe is abundant; you will have more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never have enough."~Oprah Winfrey
