One-Liner Wednesday on Courage

“Develop enough courage so that you can stand up for yourself
and then stand up for somebody else.”

– Maya Angelou

…and here’s an oldie that was pinned to my bulletin board at my old job:

  1. I chose a Maya Angelou reference too. Love this one!

    • I’m glad you shared Senator Booker’s powerful use of her quote, Laura. Maybe I was picking up on the vibe without knowing its significance.

  2. I would add: “You gain strength, courage, and confidence for every experience in which you really stop to learn fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” Eleanor Roosevelt

  3. Thank you for sharing!!… “Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t” (Rikki Rodgers)… or my favorite by Mr. Twain; “It is not the size of the dog in a fight that matters, it is the size of the fight in the dog”.. (Mark Twain).. 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)

    • Thank you for these additions, Larry. I especially like the one by Rikki Rodgers: strength comes from stretching beyond our perceived limits. May you have strength and peace.
