What They Said

So, upon occasion, I encounter a quote that really speaks to me. I also happen to love pictures of nature because they invoke such a sense of inner peace (and one needs inner peace when raising two rambunctious boys).
It is my hope that these pictures and quotes will speak to you as well. Check back here for a little inspiration each week!


“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.” ~ Mary Anne Radmacher

“Life is like a landscape. You live in the midst of it but can describe it only from the vantage point of distance.” ~Charles Lindbergh





“Beyond the horizon of time is a changed world, very different from today’s world. Some people see beyond that horizon and into the future. They believe that dreams can become reality. They open our eyes and lift our spirits. They build trust and strengthen our relationships. They stand firm against the winds of resistance and give us the courage to continue the quest. We call these people leaders.”  ~ Kouzes & Posner



“Some days you will be the light for others, and some days you will need some light from them. As long as there is light, there is hope, and there is a way.” ~ Jennifer Gayle


“I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.”                          ~ Henry David Thoreau


“We can never untangle all the woes in other people’s lives. We cannot produce miracles overnight. But we can bring a cup of cool water to a thirsty soul, or a scoop of laughter to a lonely heart.” ~Barbara Johnson



“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”

~ Pablo Picasso
