Quotes above my desk

I love quotes. I have a large collection in a couple different files on my computer, and several I’ve handwritten on post-its and stuck above my desk. So I’ll share:

  • A year from now you may wish you had started today–Karen Lamb
  • It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not
  • Boldness comes from the strength of your convictions; arrogance comes from a feeling of entitlement (this one has been above my desk for months, and I thought of it often during the Democratic Presidential Primary season)
  • Everything you want is on the other side of fear (I love this one)
  • dream in detail
  • Doing anything is better than doing nothing
  • There’s never a good reason to do the wrong thing
  • Grace is what makes it okay to not be perfect (and hoooooboy, do I ever have issues with perfectionism)
  • Never complain about what you permit
  • The problem that infuriates you the most is the problem God has assigned you to solve
  • The who unlock your compassion are those to whom you are called
  • The secret of your future lies hidden in your daily routine (really? WHERE?)
  • When you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done

There are more, but those are the ones I look at, and are inspired by, the most.

Have a great weekend.

    very nice. I liked the one about boldness and the strength of your convictions. Liked that a lot. And the one about everything I want is on the other side of fear. Damn. Very cool stuff.

    […] agree that this is totally me. I’ve said for a long time that I collect hobbies, I definitely collect quotes, I read anything that interests me (and that is as wide and varied as you could imagine), and I […]
