“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.” Eleanor Roosevelt
Never stop dreaming, as yesterday’s dream can become the reality of tomorrow and the innovation of the future.
When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you. African proverb
When you choose to forgive those who hurt you, you take away their power.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt
Hope is wishing something would happen. Faith is believing something will happen. Courage is making something happen.
