Some random quotes to motivate & inspire….

“Don’t ever let somebody tell you, you can’t do something, you got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves they’re gonna tell you, you can’t do it. If you want something go get it.”
– The Pursuit of Happiness

“Nobody can teach me who I am. You can describe parts of me, but who I am – and what I need – is something I have to find out myself.”
Chinua Achebe

“You alone are enough, you have nothing to prove to anybody” – Maya Angelou

“You, and you alone, get to determine whether you are going to react positively about something or negatively about something – or, interestingly, have no reaction at all. Your emotions are entirely under your control. Your feelings are what you want them to be.”
Neale Donald Walsch

“Let go of expectations. When you have expectations of something — a person, an experience, a vacation, a job, a book — you put it in a predetermined box that has little to do with reality. You set up an idealized version of the thing (or person) and then try to fit the reality into this ideal, and are often disappointed. Instead, try to experience reality as it is, appreciate it for what it is, and be happy that it is.”
Leo Babauta

“I ignored your aura but it grabbed me by the hand, like the moon pulled the tide, and the tide pulled the sand.” Talib Kweli

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.

Louise Erdrich
