Ten Quotes and a Reminder

In keeping with my theme of resilience, I'm going to persevere in reminding readers to sign up to follow and also to tell who, in your opinion, personifies resilience, then say why in one sentence. Please humor me and do so. Thanks. And enjoy these quotes about resilience:

It always seems impossible ... until it's done.
Nelson Mandela

Action will destroy your procrastination.

not in seeing new landscapes,
but in having new eyes.
Marcel Proust

Helen Keller

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

Life is like riding a bicycle, in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.
Albert Einstein

Life is not a matter of holding good cards,
but of playing a poor hand well.
Robert Louis Stevenson

The future you see
is the future you get.
Robert G. Allen

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly.

i always respected Dana Reeve, Christopher Reeve's widow. after his death, Mrs. Reeve continued to head the Christopher Reeve Foundation and raise their son. she seemed to have a wonderful relationship with his two grown children which proved fortunate as she died of lung cancer though she never smoked.

in public she always carried herself well, with the inner strength she had as she stood by and cared for her husband after his accident. i always respected her and have looked to her public face as an example of what a widow can put forth.

in 2005, she told Larry King: "I rode my whole life, and after Chris had his accident, I stopped riding, primarily because he loved it so much, and I think it really would have been painful for him if I was going off riding and he wasn't able to. And it didn't mean that much to me to drop."

i just always liked her.
