Quotation Saturday

James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life.

~DETERMINATION~

“In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer.”
 ~Albert Camus

“I think I’d like to be remembered as someone who beat the odds through just plain determination… that I persevered. Because I think that being somewhat of a pest to life, constantly plaguing and pursuing, will bring results.”
~Sylvester Stallone

“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”
~Ella Fitzgerald

“Have the dogged determination to follow through to achieve your goal; regardless of circumstances or whatever other people say, think or do.”
~Paul Meyer

A realistic assessment of my strengths usually turns up several weaknesses also. Becoming more self-accepting involves not only awareness of strengths but also the acceptance of my weakness not in the sense of not wanting to do something about them, but in the sense of not letting them block the use of my strengths.
~David G. Jones


I grew up in very difficult times. I observed and learned. Nobody was preparing me, I was preparing myself. I was trying to get the most out of life.
~Will Robinson

~Perseverence ~

I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.
~Christopher Reeve
 

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
~Calvin Coolidge (1872 - 1933)



~Journalism ~

To read a newspaper is to refrain from reading something worthwhile. The first discipline of education must therefore be to refuse resolutely to feed the mind with canned chatter. ~Aleister Crowley (1875 - 1947)

But what is the difference between literature and journalism?...Journalism is unreadable and literature is not read. That is all.
~Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900), The Critic as Artist, 1891

The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.
~Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826)

Since I have spring on my brain, I was drawn to:
“In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer.”
~Albert Camus

Oh, to leave this winter....drift into spring, and full emergence of summer. My heart sings...

Take care,
June
