Inspirational Quotes:

Sometimes all it takes is a few well-placed words to give you the motivation or the inspiration you need to make changes. Here are some I found useful.

It is not true that life is one damn thing after another - it's one damn thing over and over again. -Edna St. Vincent Millay

"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages."

-William Shakespeare, As You Like It

Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order. -John Adams, attributed [said during his last illness]

"Depression is anger without enthusiasm" -Anon.

Life begins on the other side of despair.
"La vie commence lautre cot du desespoir" -Jean-Paul Sartre

Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional. -Hindu Spiritual

 "A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him." -David Brinkley

 It's not the load that breaks you down - it's the way you carry it. -Lou Holtz

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. -Lou Holtz

As long as the world is turning and spinning, we're gonna be dizzy and we're gonna make mistakes. -Mel Brooks

Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open. -John Barrymore

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
-Alexander Graham Bell

Letter to a friend when in grief:

Dear Friend,
Please be patient with me; I need to grieve in my own way and in my own time.
Please don't take away my grief or try to fix my pain. The best thing you can do is listen to me and let me cry on your shoulder. Don't be afraid to cry with me. Your tears will tell me how much you care.
Please forgive me if I seem insensitive to your problems. I feel depleted and drained, like an empty vessel, with nothing left to give.
Please let me express my feelings and talk about my memories. Feel free to share your own stories of my loved one with me. I need to hear them.
Please understand why I must turn a deaf ear to criticism or tired clichés. I can't handle another person telling me that time heals all wounds.
Please don't try to find the "right" words to say to me. There's nothing you can say to take away the hurt. What I need are hugs, not words.
Please don't push me to do things I'm not ready to do, or feel hurt if I seem withdrawn. This is a necessary part of my recovery.
Please don't stop calling me. You might think you're respecting my privacy, but to me it feels like abandonment. Please don't expect me to be the same as I was before. I've been through a traumatic experience and I'm a different person.
Please accept me for who I am today. Pray with me and for me. Should I falter in my own faith, let me lean on yours. In return for your loving support I promise that, after I've worked through my grief, I will be a more loving, caring, sensitive, and compassionate friend-becauseI have learned from the best.
(Your name)

-Margaret Brownley
