A few Inspiring Quotes

Sent to me from a Children's Book Guild of Washington, DC member:

      " I happened upon a website that had some wonderfully inspirational quotes, and I wanted to share them with you. I have linked the website below, and even though I normally check my sources with the original records I didn’t do that this time — I have just taken the quotes from the website as they were, chosen my favorite ones, and gathered them to cut and paste here, so I hope the references are correct. But frankly, even if it was Kermit the Frog who said all this stuff, I’d still find it uplifting and instructive!"

“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” John Wooden

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” Henry Ford

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” Oprah Winfrey 

“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.” Paulo Coelho
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Nelson Mandela
