Three Day, Three Quote Challenge

Over the weekend, ConfessionsofaRebornGirl challenged me to the three day, three quote challenge. While we’ve never met, I think she senses I am always up for a good writing challenge of any kind – including locating and sharing quotes!

Side Note: I am bending the rules slightly as I participate in this challenge (I hope that is copacetic!). I am going to share 3 quotes for 3 days and then on the final day, pass the challenge baton on to the next contenders.

Quote #1: I discovered this listening to a Brene Brown Sounds True recording:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.  

–Teddy Roosevelt, Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic”
delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910

Quote #2: I originally re-pinned this on Pinterest – to which my mom saw and then sent me a printed copy:wp-1475505439012.jpg

Quote #3: Because I’ve been fighting anxiety attacks for the past 3 days:

Be 

gentle 

with

yourself,

you’re

doing the

best you

can.
