Many of our fears are tissue paper thin, and a single courageous step would carry us clear through them.- Brendan Francis

Don't ever assume you're the only one who's had it rough. & don't assume that bitterness is the only way to deal with it, so anyone who isn't bitter must've had it easy.
bitterness is a prison, not an armor.
If you want to be happy you've got to have the courage to care.
because if you don't care, then the best you can hope for is indifference.
life might deal you the rough hand,
But it's always up to you what to do with it.

When we are afraid we ought not to occupy ourselves with endeavoring to prove that there is no danger, but in strengthening ourselves to go on in spite of the danger. ~Mark Rutherford

The future is called "perhaps," which is the only possible thing to call the future. And the only important thing is not to allow that to scare you. ~Tennessee Williams, Orpheus Descending, 1957

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
