Today’s Reflection ~ Inspiring

“Only  as  high  as  I  reach  can  I  grow, 

Only  as  far  as  I  seek  can  I  go, 

Only  as  deep  as  I  look  can  I  see, 

Only  as  much as  I dream can I  be.” ~Karen  Ravn

Today’s Reflection ~ Inspiration

Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be the Best You Can Be ~ by Douglas Malloch

If you can’t be a pine on the top of the hill

    Be a scrub in the valley—but be

  The best little scrub by the side of the rill;

    Be a bush if you can’t be a tree.

If you can’t be a bush be a bit of the grass,

    And some highway some happier make;

If you can’t be a muskie then just be a bass—

    But the liveliest bass in the lake!

We can’t all be captains, we’ve got to be crew,

    There’s something for all of us here.

There’s big work to do and there’s lesser to do,

    And the task we must do is the near.

If you can’t be a highway then just be a trail,

    If you can’t be the sun be a star;

It isn’t by size that you win or you fail—

    Be the best of whatever you are!

Douglas Malloch

Little Things ~ Brewer

Little Things.

Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.
Thus the little minutes,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.

Ebenezer Cobham Brewer.

Today’s Reflection ~ Purpose

“I have not been spared for nothing. I feel like I have more of a purpose now—I just have to find out what it is. I’ve got to figure out what my Holy Grail is for the rest of my life. I can’t waste this opportunity.” ~ Matt Millen after receiving a heart transplant

Never Quit – Inspiring Quote from William Alger

“After every storm the sun will smile; for every problem there is a solution, and the soul’s indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer.”
