Lois Lowry Quote
You can pretend that bad things will never happen. But life's a lot easier if you realize and admit that sometimes they do.
Through challenge and difficulty, we learn to see life differently than before.
Every challenge, every adversity, contains within it the seeds of opportunity and growth.
The insights gathered from those relatively unique experiences can add wisdom to our own travels.
Bad weather never stopped anyone from reaping a good harvest.
You are no greater than the friends you keep, the books you read, the heroes you admire, and the obstacles you overcome.
Take the challenge of your life.Reach out to your goals.There is no limit to what you can achieve.
