You Are Stronger Than You Think

I want to slightly modify and repost something I wrote a few years ago. I think it’s important to share a quote that resonates when doing tough work.

We Should All Be So Bold

Watch the world’s best perform. The best anything, athlete, musician, educator, scientist. You can turn your TV on right now and see the world’s best doing what they love. It’s not just the physicality of what they do, though that is remarkable. But watch their faces. Watch how their very souls come out in theContinue reading “We Should All Be So Bold”

Be Unconquered, pt. 1

Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be, For my unconquerable soul. At the age of 12, William Ernest Henley contracted tuberculosis of the bone. A few years later, the disease progressed to his foot, and physicians announced that the only wayContinue reading “Be Unconquered, pt. 1”
