Holding onto anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intention of throwing it at someone else. You are the one who gets burned.
In the depths of winter, I finally found there was in me an invincible summer.
- Albert Camus, author
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
- Dale Carnegie
You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone, which can become a watered-down, occasional hope that you'll get to tomorrow. Intention without action is useless.
What reason weaves, by passion is undone.
- Alexander Pope
