Coffee Chat...Inspirational Quotes 11/12/13



This week on coffee chat Rory is discussing inspirational quotes. Do you have one or two?
Is there a quote that resonates with you?

I actually had to think a bit on this one because there are many quotes that I have come across that I love or have hit me in such a way that I was moved by them.

Heck, this past April for a writing challenge, I used quotes as part of my thought process. I picked specific ones to reflect on and let them etch into my soul a bit.

Hmm...let me think...

How about this one.

Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Maya Angelou 

I can relate to this in many ways. I have not kept it a secret that I have suffered from depression. When I was in my deepest darkest places sometimes I would listen to music. Often the music spoke to the way I was feeling or it would draw me out into the light. Either way, it was, as Maya Angelou said, "my refuge".
Music was a calming factor when I felt my world was crashing inward. It still is to this day something I look for.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
C. S. Lewis 

After I lost my hearing, I thought for awhile that I could never do anything again. My dreams were shattered and I was not sure what I was going to do. 
I found out that to dream another dream was ok. When I did that or at the very least hoped in the dream, doors were open to me that I could never have imagined. Wow!

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!
Audrey Hepburn 

When I think about this quote it reminds me of a video I saw about a man who had given up on himself and life but then...

...which brings me to this quote.

Never, never, never give up.
Winston Churchill

  1. That one by Maya is Perfect! Then again, Maya does seem to have that knack for saying the perfect thing. I remember a saying from somewhere - don't know who or where - but it was to the effect that music cleanses us - that it has the power to sweep away the dust of life. I thought that was so accurate.

  2. All excellent quotes. I, especially love "Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, 'I'm possible'." I had not looked at that way before - very neat!

  4. You did a great job! I am bipolar and find that I sink into music when I'm feeling low. I totally understand that.
