    I don't have a single favorite, but here are a some that I really love.

    Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.

    Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

    Girls compete with each other. Women empower one another. 

    Only God can turn a mess into a message, a test into a testimony, a trial into a triumph, and a victim into a victory.

    Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. 

    Throw me to the wolves and I will return leading the pack. 

    There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world, because you realize there is so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on. 

    Speak even if your voice shakes.

    A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms. 

    Grief is like an earthquake. The first one hits you and your world falls apart. Even after you put it back together again, there are aftershocks, and you never really know when those will come. 

    Rain falls because the clouds can no longer handle the weight. Tears fall because the heart can no longer handle the pain. 

    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

    How I feel all of the time.

    "I'm through accepting limits 'cause someone says they're so.  Some things I cannot change, but 'til I try, I'll never know." - Wicked (I love the whole musical, obviously)  I have a pendant that says "Defy Gravity" that I wear a lot.

    "And though she be but little, she is fierce." - Shakespeare.  I have this on a pendant, my phone case, and I just bought a wooden sign with this quote for my desk.  I like to remind myself on my bad days that I am much stronger than I think.

    Late to the game. But I actually want to get the first line tattooed on my wrist to look like a bracelet.

    A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl.
    - Stephen Hoeller
