Our plants are beginning to show their buds, pushing up and out of the soil, showing themselves to be strong, ready to burst free. May these quotations strengthen your resolve to never quit.


“And that night, before I went to bed, I said a prayer of my own—that I might extend the same presumption of good faith to others that the doctor had extended to me.”

Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope


“Wake up! It’s a magic day! Wake up! Get up and play!”

Thomas Crum, Three Deep Breaths


“Even when you change, the old beliefs aren’t just removed like a worn-out hip or knee and replaced with better ones. Instead, the new beliefs take their place alongside the old ones, and as they become stronger, they give you a different way to think, feel, and act.”

Carol S. Dweck, Mindset
