Quotable Sunday With Toni!

It’s Toni’s Quotable Sunday again! Yay! I can’t help but partake in this because I am a quote junky! This week has been an especially hard week. I’ve fought with myself internally over a lot of things. I am my biggest enemy! So here are the quotes that helped me push through!

“When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” –Jacob Riis

I love that quote. The San Antonio Spurs actually have it in their locker room as a reminder for internal fortitude. I love it. It just reminds me to keep hammering away.

“Blaze with the fire that is never extinguished.” — Luisa Sigea

Oddly, maybe unfortunately, I live life like this all the time. If someone were to ask me the infamous question, “What drives you?”, I would simply answer passion. I’m learning more and more to embrace that part of me.

“Bring your desires down to your present means. Increase them only when your increased means permit.” — Aristotle

Just a simple reminder to what my mom always tells me…”In Time”.

“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. — Lao-Tzu

Just another simple reminder to go at it slowly!
