For all of you who are entering the final phase of this last semester in school, moving on to new things, and/or just need a few words of encouragement for the challenges that've come your way. : )
Keep Calm and Carry On
"Promise me that you'll always remember - you're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." ~ Christopher Robin, 'Winnie the Pooh'
"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." ~ C. S. Lewis
"Never, never, never give up." ~ Winston Churchill
"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." ~ Dr. Seuss
"Have a heart that never hardens, a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts." ~ Charles Dickens
"The best way out is always through." ~ Robert Frost
"Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart." ~ Confucius
"And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened." ~ Luke 11:9-10
"I am finding here (I expect you are, too) that the most difficult thing is getting up in the morning (Jer. 31:26!). I am now praying quite simply for freedom. There is such a thing as a false composure which is quite unchristian. As Christians, we need not be at all ashamed of some impatience, longing, opposition to what is unnatural, and our full share of desire for freedom, earthly happiness, and opportunity for effective work." ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 'Letters and Papers from Prison'
"The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not abandon it to his enemy." ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer
"One act of obedience is better than one hundred sermons." ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer
"No act of love, however small, is ever wasted." ~ Aesop
