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.

DAY SEVEN:
“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

DAY EIGHT:
“Wake up! It’s a magic day! Wake up! Get up and play!”
Thomas Crum, Three Deep Breaths

Carol S. Dweck, Mindset
