courage & potential

One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential.

-Maya Angelou


step by step

We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time … discovering that we have the strength to stare [each thing] down.

-Eleanor Roosevelt, queen of empowering quotes


Learning is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily.

-Chinese proverb

life’s experiences

You can figure out what you want to be when you grow up, you just have to be very grown up to do it. Most women search, adjust, and search some more for the right career…until one day, it finally appears out of the fog of life’s experiences. In other words, there are no shortcuts to discovering the perfect job. There is just a journey.

-Suzy Welch

geese & ducks

When in flight, geese are called a skein; when not in flight, a gaggle; and when flying in a V formation, they are referred to as a wedge. Ducks take a number of terms too: while in water, they are called a paddling.

other than myself

I will visit a place entirely other than myself. Whether it is the future or the past need not be decided in advance.

-Susan Sontag


If you open your heart, love opens your mind.

-Charles John Quarto
