Quote of the Day

I haven't done one of these in awhile, but this post on Cup of Jo got me thinking about the words I try to live by. Then I found a card with this printed on the front, which is now clipped to my fridge for daily inspiration.

"If you're going to be passionate about something, be passionate about learning. If you're going to fight something, fight for those in need. If you're going to question something, question authority. If you're going to lose something, lose your inhibitions. If you're going to gain something, gain respect and confidence. And if you're going to hate something, hate the false idea that you are not capable of your dreams."
~Daniel Golston

If I had to pick a motto to live by, this would be my second choice after "love your neighbor as yourself". I think it's just about perfect.

What is your motto to live by?


  1. I don't remember the exact wording but it's something along the lines of "everybody falls down, but failure is never getting up".

  2. words we could all stand to live by.. that quote really is perfect :)
