Sometimes we need words of inspirations to just keep us going. There are days when we feel like everything is going wrong even when we are doing ever thing in our power to make everything go right. There are day when we just need a little push to keep us going in the right direction, these words are here to give us hope and keep us pressing on. Life is full of struggles and disappointments, but life is also full of hope and thoughts and memories of kind acts from the people who we know and meet for just a second that reminds us that things are going to work out just fine. These are words to remind us of those moments.
Inspire Your Soul
“If there is no struggle, there is not progress”. Frederick Douglass
“The greatest inspiration is often born of desperation”. Comer Cotrell
Attempting to Reach a Goal Unknown
I would rather stumble a thousand times
Attempting to reach a goal
Than to sit in a crowd
In my weather-proof shroud
A shriveled and self-satisfied soul.
I would rather be doing and daring
All of my error-filled days
Than watching, and waiting, and dying
Smug in my perfect ways.
I would rather wonder and blunder
Stumbling blindly ahead
Than for safety’s sake
Lest I make a mistake
Be sure, be safe, be dead.
Don’t Quit Unknown
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit…
Rest if you must—but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out.
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems afar.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things go wrong
That you mustn’t quit.
Serenity Prayer Reinhold Niebuhr
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
To fully live,
to fully love,
to get close to someone,
Is to become vulnerable
and risk getting hurt.
But to stay in my shell
where I feel comfortable and safe
is a greater risk by far—
For to risk nothing
is to risk everything.
Instead of living fully
I’ll be dying slowly
And never will discover
the joy of loving nor the high
achievement of becoming
all that I was meant
and created to be.
