The courage to believe

July 25, 2008

“Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.”

~ Dale Carnegie


  1. Although I would probably not go looking for the opportunities to prove this is so, I have found that in times when I have sorely needed to be courageous, somehow the strength is there. Lucky for us this is true.

  2. And it’s only in adversity we can know this. Good one sweet, smart and ever so pretty Ang.

  3. what mr carnegie fails to relay is that once you have faced that courage, you need serious drugs, therapy or rest in order to proceed. 🙂

  4. I’ve learned that the hard way, I think — times when I was sure I couldn’t do it and I just jumped. It’s how I ended up where I am today. Blinding fear and deciding that I was just going to do it.

    You’re always an inspiration. 🙂

  5. “You’re the meaning in my life
    You’re the inspiration… ”

    That’s a Chicago lyric (I know, a little too white for you :))


  6. Citizen ~ I don’t feel like a very courageous person, but I’ve been told that I am and I always appreciate the compliments. I’d like to believe that Mr. Carnegie was right, you know?

    Ian ~ How true! (And thank you for your sweet compliments — you know what a sucker I am for them!)

    Say It ~ Amen, sister. Isn’t that the truth?! Let me answer that. Yes, yes it is.

    GW~ Very cool. You see, my dear, you are *my* inspiration. Here’s to jumping!

    TW ~ LOL! I had a good laugh at that one, and I *do* love Chicago. I’m sure it surprises you to hear it. 😉

  7. I can’t say I’m surprised that you would like a band that’s made as much as good music as Chicago has… Plus, their horn section is cooking, just like Earth, Wind and Fire, so maybe that’s what attracted you to them 🙂


  8. I love horns. Can’t lie. I do. And good music. I’m pretty much a fan of anything that’s good, really good or great.

  9. So, if you love horns, does that make you — oh, never mind 🙂
