Quote of the Day: Hard Times

“However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man’s abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace.” 
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“You need to spend time crawling alone through shadows to truly appreciate what it is to stand in the sun.” 
― Shaun Hick

“Your friends will believe in your potential, your enemies will make you live up to it.” 
― Tim Fargo


“There had been times when he knew, somewhere in him, that he would get used to it, whatever it was, because he had learnt that some hard things became softer after a very little while.” 
― Nick Hornby, About a Boy

“And hard times are good in their own way, too. Because the only way you can achieve true happiness is if you experience true sadness as well. It’s all about light and shade. Balance.” 
― Gabrielle Williams, Beatle Meets Destiny

“Some people make a bad bed, they just have to lie in it.” 
― Virginia Euwer Wolff, Make Lemonade


“Regardless of the situation, don’t let the bastards win … and have no regrets … for it will be a good day!
― R.G. Risch, Beyond Mars: Crimson Fleet

“The way I see it, hard times aren’t only about money,
or drought,
or dust.
Hard times are about losing spirit,
and hope,
and what happens when dreams dry up.” 
― Karen Hesse, Out of the Dust

“It’s funny how, when things seem the darkest, moments of beauty present themselves in the most unexpected places.” 
― Karen Marie Moning, Dreamfever


“Why wait? So precious is this life—this gift—this temporary blindness. Burn and drown and embrace the false dark, then grasp the unthinkable height of resulting joy. For in the end, in the light of truth when the flesh is cast off, there is nothing but this.” 
― Jennifer DeLucy

“Don’t regret that your life is too easy, mine is rather easy too; I think that life is pretty long and that the time will arrive soon enough in which “another shall gird thee and carry thee where thou wouldst not.” 
― Vincent van Gogh, The Letters of Vincent van Gogh
