Quotations

Truth

The body keeps score — and it always wins. -Brené Brown

Steadiness

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Courage

Failure is success in progress. -Albert Einstein

Integrity

A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right. -Thomas Paine

Inspiration

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily. -Zig Ziglar
