On those days when you are struggling to find your own inspiration, it helps to have somewhere to turn. Quotes are a great place to find that little boost of perspective and positive attitude that can help get you through the day. Below are a few of the quotes that helped me during my father’s illness, along with some of my father’s own words of wisdom that have gotten me through a tough day or two since.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” —Martin Luther King, Jr.
“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” —Baseball pioneer Jackie Robinson
“If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him, I’d play a song that would never, ever end, how I’d love to dance with my father again.” —Luther Vandross, “Dance with My Father”
“Every day is a gift; that’s why we call it the present.” —Anonymous
In My Father’s Words:
“Tomorrow will be a better day.”
“If you go looking for trouble, you’ll find it.”
“No need to be a hero.”
