Discouragement

J. Urteaga

Your life will be a full one if you do what you ought yo do, and be where you ought to be. Begin again every day, begin anew – without being discouraged, without being afraid constantly.

Charles Beard

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.

John Wooden

If we magnified blessings as much as we magnify disappointments, we would all be much happier.

Theodore Roosevelt

Edgar Albert Guest

The joy of life is living it, or so it seems to me;
In finding shackles on your wrists, then struggling till you’re free;
In seeing wrongs and righting them, in dreaming splendid dreams,
Then toiling till the vision is as real as moving streams.
The happiest mortal on the earth is he who ends his day
By leaving better than he found to bloom along the way.
Were all things perfect here there would be naught for man to do;
If what is old were good enough we’d never need the new.
The only happy time of rest is that which follows strife
And sees some contribution made unto the joy of life.
And he who has oppression felt and conquered it is he
Who really knows the happiness and peace of being free.
The miseries of earth are here and with them all must cope.
Who seeks for joy, through hedges thick of care and pain must grope.
Through disappointment man must go to value pleasure’s thrill;
To really know the joy of health a man must first be ill.
The wrongs are here for man to right, and happiness is had
By striving to supplant with good the evil and the bad.
The joy of life is living it and doing things of worth,
In making bright and fruitful all the barren spots of earth.
In facing odds and mastering them and rising from defeat,
And making true what once was false, and what was bitter, sweet.
For only he knows perfect joy whose little bit of soil
Is richer ground than what it was when he began to toil.

Francis of Assisi

All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.

Meg Meeker, M.D.

Having hope gives purpose and meaning…We need to keep hope alive in our hearts and dig deep inside to find it so that we can live with an inner awareness that we matter. Every one of our lives matters. Every one. Hope keeps us aware of this truth.

Charlie Brown

This is my “depressed stance.” When you’re depressed it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you’ll start to feel better. If you’re going to get any joy out of being depressed, you’ve got to stand like this.

Dale Carnegie

You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world’s happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely of discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.

Earl Nightingale

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

Philip Rivers

You now begin. But this is ongoing. You begin again, and again and again. You never give up. Nunc Coepi.

Lech Walesa

It is hardly possible to build anything if frustration, bitterness, and a mood of helplessness prevail.

Lucille Ball

One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.

B. C. Forbes

History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.

Napoleon Hill

Edison failed 10,000 times before he made the electric light. Do not be discouraged if you fail a few times.

John Burroughs

A man can get discouraged many times but he is not a failure until he begins to blame somebody else and stops trying.

Mother Teresa

Don’t give in to discouragement…If you are discouraged it is a sign of pride because it shows you trust in your own powers. Never bother about people’s opinions. Be obedient to truth. For with humble obedience, you will never be disturbed.
