When you get into a tight place and it seems you can't go on, hold on, for that's just the place and time that the tide will turn.

(Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1812 - 1896)

Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

My creed is that public service must be more than just doing a job efficiently and honestly. It must be a complete dedication to the people and to the nation with full recognition that every human being is entitled to courtesy and consideration, that constructive criticism is not only to be expected but sought, that smears are not only to be expected but fought, and that honor is to be earned but not bought.

(Margaret Chase Smith, 1897 - 1995)

This is the day we are given;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great ones are those who in the midst of the crowd keep with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

(Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803 - 1882)

Though the morning seems to linger
O'er the hill-tops far away,
Yet the shadows bear the promise
Of a brighter coming day.

(Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, 1825 - 1911)

How wonderful it is to be able to feel things deeply!
The sheer delight of fresh air when you have been indoors all day;
The never ending wonder of sunrise and sunset;
The sound of wind through the trees and the the utter wetness of the rain;
The excitement of finding something that was lost and is found:
My fountain pen,
A beautiful word forgotten,
The return of an old book,
The reconciliation after estrangement,
The first step after months of illness...
How wonderful!

(Howard Thurman, 1899 - 1981)

This is the day we are given;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Make the most of it.....

On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, "Is it safe?"
Expediency asks the question, "Is it politic?" And Vanity comes along and asks the question, "Is it popular?" But conscience asks the question, "Is it right?" And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but we must do it because Conscience tells us it is right.

(Martin Luther King, Jr., 1929 - 1968)

We want more soul, a higher cultivation of a  spiritual faculties. We need more unselfishness, earnestness, and integrity. We need men and women whose hearts are the homes of high and loft enthusiasm and a noble devotion to the cause of emancipation, who are ready and willing to lay time, talent, and money on the alter of universal freedom.

(Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, !825 - 1911)
