Wednesday Vignettes: Confidence
“We either make ourselves miserable,
or we make ourselves strong.
The amount of work is the same.”
“I am only one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse
to do the something that I can do.”
Edward Everett Hale
“I learned this, at least, by my experiment;
that if one advances confidently
in the direction of his dreams,
and endeavors to live the life
which he has imagined,
he will meet with a success
unexpected in common hours..”
Henry David Thoreau
“Human spirit is the ability to face
the uncertainty of the future
with curiosity and optimism.
It is the belief that problems can be solved,
It is a type of confidence.
And it is fragile.
It can be blackened by fear, and superstition. ”
