Step Up and Take Responsibility

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.  ~ Winston S. Churchill

You'll never find a rainbow if you're looking down.  ~ Charles Chaplin

Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.  ~ Marcus Aurelius

Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.  Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.  ~ Helen Keller

Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so.   ~Noam Chomsky
