Today I was inspired by Mel’s #MicroblogMondays 31 post, so decided to piggyback on her thoughts and share a handful of my own favourite inspirational quotes here on Alphabet Salad. Hope you enjoy… and hope you are inspired!
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.
~ Dr. Seuss
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
~ Marianne Williamson
Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
~ Robert F. Kennedy
And finally, one of my most beloved inspirational and motivational pieces – The Holstee Manifesto.
