Certainly one of the nice things about blogging is the building of community. Michael H. Ballard left a comment on Yesterday’s White Combs and Sweet Honey From my Old Failures post. That led me to his web site, Resiliency for Life: building and restoring spirit. You can find a very nice list of resiliency quotes there. A short sample is below.
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. —Helen Keller
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. —Confucius
The secret of success is constancy of purpose.—Benjamin Disraeli
He who has a why to live for, can endure almost any how. —Dr. Victor Frankl, Psychiatrist
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. —Ralph Waldo Emerson

Check out my own view on resilience. Hope those broken lenses might help see the God of Second Chances through every scribbled text.
