i realized yesterday that these quotes could be rather impersonal, so i thought i'd add a quick something to the beginning of each post--not sure what. guess i'll just wing it.
at first this was going to be a post about creativity, but then i realized that although creativity is necessary, without courage, you may never use your creativity. i had stories inside of me, but until i took up the courage to write them, they were stuck there. when i finally let them out, it opened up a floodgate of creativity and i can't stop writing.
Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow. ~Mary Anne Radmacher
Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged. ~Thomas A. Edison
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point. ~C.S. Lewis
Courage is fear holding on a minute longer. ~George Smith Patton
Courage is being scared to death... and saddling up anyway. ~John Wayne (we love John Wayne, so this is my favorite of the bunch today.)
