Resilience Quotes

Rest satisfied with doing well,
and leave others to talk of you as they will

Don’t waste time in doubts and fears;
spend yourself on the work before you,
well assured that the right performance of this hours duties
will be the best preparation
for the hours and ages
that will follow it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying
“I will try again tomorrow”
Mary Anne Radmacher
