There is no failure except in no longer trying. There is no defeat except from within, no insurmountable barrier except our own inherent weakness of purpose.
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."
Elizabeth Kübler-Ross, author of "On Death and Dying"
"Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live."
Mae C. Jemison, first African-American woman astronaut
"If we don't change, we don't grow.
If we don't grow, we are not really living.
Growth demands a temporary surrender of security."
"Remember no one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
“It's never too late... never too late to start over, never too late to be happy.”
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
Maya Angelou, African-American poet
"To me success means effectiveness in the world, that I am able to carry my ideas and values into the world--that I am able to change it in positive ways."
Maxine Hong Kingston, author of "Woman Warrior"
"We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies."
Emily Dickinson, American Poet
"Courage is like a muscle. We strengthen it with use."
