Quote by Eleanor Farjeon
Change can be scary, but you know what's scarier? Allowing fear to stop you from growing, evolving and progressing.
You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.
The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one's appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship.
Those who intend on becoming great should love neither themselves nor their own things, but only what is just, whether it happens to be done by themselves or others.
Within my heart is lurking suspicion, and base fear, and shame and hate; but above all, tyrannous love sits throned, crowned with her graces, silent and in tears.
Too often we give others the power of controlling our emotions. Replace fear, hate and anger with love and you will be free.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
If we deny the love that is given to us, we refuse to give love because we fear pain or loss, then our lives will be empty, our loss greater.
