Inspirational message?????


Well-Known Member
Tommorow night(Sunday) I need to have some type of inspirational words, anywhere from a paragraph to a page. It can be quoted from someone, or whatever. My dragonboat team practices and at the halfway point, we stop rowing, and someone reads the "inspiration". It's my turn tomorrow. We are all a bunch of cancer survivors so it is usually about overcoming obstacles, or appreciating the day, smelling the roses, something inspirational along those lines. Does anyone know a website or know of anything good I can use? Thanks, Alyssa

Whenever I am down and out, I repeat this to myself. It helps me know that hope exists---and if I sit still enough, I will hear it in my heart.

Emily Dickinoson

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
