Quote for the Day : Give the World Your Best

“…People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway…”

— Mother Teresa



Quote for the Day : Drop in the Ocean

“…We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something…”

Small Things

Small Things

I have finished the doodle I started a couple of days ago.  I just got the urge to colour in and add a quote and be done with it.  It’s not perfect but I am happy the first page of my art journal is done (even if it’s not actually the first page, but somewhere in the middle!).  I am hoping to be a little more mixed-media-ish in coming pages but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  I finished something and that is no small feat for me.  Be faithful in small things, indeed 🙂

Quote for the Day : Life

Quote for the Day : Life

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is life, fight for it.”

— Mother Teresa
