Quotes make the world go round! They are the light in the dark, the radiant sun that brightens an otherwise gloomy night, and the fuel that powers our drive to be anything and do anything we want. Starting your day with an inspiring quote or two can make all the difference. It resets your mindset and helps you get through the day and your goals — with nothing but passion and strong will to guide you.
We love quotes and are inspired by them. We regard them as a necessary accessory to success and optimism and a powerful remedy for despondency and pessimism. This is why we are always delighted and eager to share as many quotes as we can with you. Today, we hope this powerful quote will inspire “bravery” in you.
“There are many different kinds of bravery. There’s the bravery of thinking of others before one’s self. Now, your father has never brandished a sword nor fired a pistol, thank heavens. But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put away many dreams.”
“Where did he put them?”
“He put them in a drawer. And sometimes, late at night, we take them out and admire them. But it gets harder and harder to close the drawer… He does. And that is why he is brave.”
(Conversation between Mrs. Darling and Michael, from Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie)
