I'm always looking for quotes or poems that move & inspire me, sometimes I find it difficult to find what I am looking for, other times I find so many! Rather like waiting for a bus - you hang around waiting and waiting then all 3 turn up at the same time! Image - well here goes, these quotes impressed me and give me comfort & strength, I find that when I remember you all here - I don't feel as if I'm alone and that gives me courage & strength - I'm so glad that I have the chance to get to know you all via this forum!

Enjoy & See you around! Image Image


Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it's the fragile blossom that opens in the snow. (Alice MacKenzie Swaim)

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. (Taylor Benson)

We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count. (Neil A. Maxwell)

Do all things with love. (Og Mandino)

I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It's there all the time. (Anna Freud)

At some point your heart will tell itself what to do. (Achaan Chah)

When your desires are strong enough, you will appear to possess superhuman powers to achieve. (Napoleon Hill)

Faith in oneself.......is the best and safest course. (Michaelangelo)
That Very Special Friend..........

We cannot tell the precise moment when a friendship is formed,
As in filling a vessel drop by drop,
There is at last a drop which makes it run over;
So, in a series of kindesses there is at last one,
Which makes the Heart run over...................

by James Boswell

Far Away by Pam Brown

In loneliness,in sickness,in confusion -
The mere knowledge of friendship makes it possible to endure.
Even if the friend is powerless to help,
It is enough that they exist.

Friendship is not diminished by distance or time,
by imprisonment or war,by suffering or silence.
It is in these things that it roots most deeply.
It is from these things that it flowers.
"Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome."
(Samuel Johnson)

"Sometimes the greatest adversities turn out to be the greatest blessings."
(Charles Caleb Cotton)
"The Carer and Cared for are both sides of the same coin".

"Our Cared ones are extraordinary and special people unlike any other, who are in our lives to teach us to be better & compassionate people & we use our "gifts" to help them."

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.

People are like tea bags
You find out how strong they are
when you put them in hot water.

People are like stained glass windows,
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
But when darkness sets in,
Their true beauty is only seen if there is a light within.
