“There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them.
But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.”   ― Paulo Coelho, The Fifth Mountain

“Write a letter to yourself at another time in your life (past or future).  Bonus:  Send it to someone who is currently that age and discuss it with them.”  -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“But when women are moved and lend help, when women, who are by nature calm and controlled, give encouragement and applause, when virtuous and knowledgeable women grace the endeavor with their sweet love, then it is invincible.”   -Jose Marti

Acts 4:36 There was a Levite, a native of Cyprus, Joseph, to whom the apostles gave the name Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”).
