A few quotes I want to remember when times get rough....

“Many of life's failures are experienced by people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas Edison

“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.” Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Success is the sum of small efforts - repeated day in and day out.” Robert Collier

“Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.” Chinese Proverb

“Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.” Earl Nightingale

"Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Good Friday Jen! I think my favorite is the Chinese Proverb about GOING SLOW.... that is totally me! Thanks for taking the time to share these. I am SLOWLY getting back into my blogging now that the rain and wind has arrived to my neck of the woods.
