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.
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'!
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.
