“When we find ourselves in discordant conditions, we should never say, ‘Oh. what’s the use?’ Rather, we should say, ‘There is something in me is greater than this condition and it can dissolve it.'” -Ernest Holmes
“Be thankful for the defeat which men call failure, because if you can survive it and keep on trying it gives you a chance to prove your ability to rise to the heights of achievement in your chosen field of endeavor.
No one has the right to brand you as a failure except yourself.
If, in a moment of despair, you should feel inclined to brand yourself as a failure, just remember those words of the wealthy philosopher, Croesus, who was adviser to Cyrus, king of the Persians:
‘I am reminded, O king, and take this lesson to heart, that there is a wheel on which the affairs of men revolve and its mechanism is such that it prevents any man from being always fortunate.’” -Napoleon Hill
“It all comes down to self-belief. Just have the courage and the faith to take the first step and you will get such a big reward, you’ll be encouraged to take the second step. That’s how my biggest life changes came about.” -Jane Seymour
[SIDEBAR: When dealing with the treachery that is the NYC homeless shelter system, never let the system’s wickedness take away your self-belief and your courage. It seems like that is their aim. Your bravery, and calm insights are your greatest allies; keep them in tact.
Lots of Love,
-The Homeless New Yorker
“Some people, if they have authority, they’re going to abuse it. That was the biggest thing I needed to know. I had to know that no matter if you’re doing everything right; if you’re doing your best; that, guess what? Sometimes you may not get the result you want. That doesn’t mean you quit.” -Romeo Miller
