Inspirational Quotations: Five, plus one

Spring is a time of inspiration. As the seasons change and nature renews, we find ourselves wanting to change for the better as well.

Here are five quotes that inspire my changes. I don’t know where they came from—a few I may have made up myself—but they capture common wisdom in words that I enjoy.  I hope you enjoy them too!

Our choices, not our circumstances, dictate our future

Sometimes we feel SAFER with old problems

You will not be judged by what you start,
only by what you finish

When our dreams are too small, we dishonor God

Let your heart be filled,
every season of your life,
with the joy of Spring

And the plus one by Archibald McLeish:

To see the earth as it truly is, small and blue and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves as riders on the earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the eternal cold—brothers who know now they are truly brothers.
