― Friedrich Nietzsche

― Shannon Alder

“It doesn’t matter what you did or where you were…it matters where you are and what you’re doing. Get out there! Sing the song in your heart and NEVER let anyone shut you up!!”

― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

“Life is filled with unanswered questions, but it is the courage to seek those answers that continues to give meaning to life. You can spend your life wallowing in despair, wondering why you were the one who was led towards the road strewn with pain, or you can be grateful that you are strong enough to survive it.”

― J.D. Stroube, Caged by Damnation

“Your greatest self has been waiting your whole life; don’t make it wait any longer.”

― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

“Without God, life has no purpose, and without purpose, life has no meaning. Without meaning, life has no significance or hope.”

― Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?

― Roy T. Bennett

“Life isn’t meant to be lived perfectly…but merely to be LIVED. Boldly, wildly, beautifully, uncertainly, imperfectly, magically LIVED.”

― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

“The fact that you are still alive assures you that God has something for you to accomplish.”

― Rodney Winters, Go Into the House

“There’s a difference between living and just surviving. Do something you love, and find someone to love who loves that you love what you do.

It is really that simple.

And that hard.”

― John Connolly, The Infernals

“In spite of where we were, how we had gotten here and why we had come, I felt that at this moment of our lives, this place was exactly where we belonged. We were not drifting but rising, rising toward something right and of significance.”

― Dean Koontz


Where you find Truth
Is where you find your reflection
And where you find your reflection
Is where you find love
And where you find love
Is where you find light
And where you find light
Is where you find faith
And where you find faith
Is where you find purpose
And where you find purpose
Is where you find happiness
And where you find happiness
Is where you find Truth
And when you find Truth
Truth will set you free.”
― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
