I thought it might be nice to have a designated place for people to post their favorite quotes, song lyrics, lines of poetry, and lines from movies. If you know the source, I think it would be nice to give credit. If they are your own words, be proud and say so!
When I'm at my worst this is how I feel:
"I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would not be one cheerful face on the earth. Whether I shall ever be better I can not tell; I awfully forebode I shall not." --Abraham Lincoln
A comedian's take on a similar feeling:
"I feel like a hundred dollars." (as opposed to a million bucks) --Chevy Chase, from the movie Caddyshack
When I need to see a purpose in what I have been through:
"It's the hottest fires that make the hardest steel." --Chrysler Superbowl commercial
When I need courage to open up to someone:
"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." --Maya Angelou
A reason for me to power through pessimism:
"You deserve better. You can have better. When you realize that, you will set yourself free." --from the MIHH podcast, episode 32
Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
