Words of inspiration
Friday is here! It’s the end of the work week—a day when the freedom of the weekend beckons. Friday is for fun.
Last week one New Kinder prompted us to share quotes that made us laugh, think, or that generated inspiration. This week we wanted to share what came out. Enjoy!
“Beware the lollipop of mediocrity; lick it once and you’ll suck forever.” –Brian Wilson
“Fun is good.” –Dr. Seuss
“How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples, the myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us. So you must not be frightened if a sadness rises up before you larger than any you have ever seen; if a restiveness, like light and cloudshadows, passes over your hands and over all you do. You must think that something is happening with you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand; it will not let you fall. Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any miseries, or any depressions? For after all, you do not know what work these conditions are doing inside you.” –Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” –Peter Drucker
“My mission in life is not simply to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” –Maya Angelou
“You can put wings on a pig, but that doesn’t make it an eagle.” –Bill Clinton
