7 Quotes To Help You Grow And Learn

There are an infinite number of words in the universe, and sometimes we underestimate their magnitude. Words have the power to inspire, or even to drive a person to get out of bed when they're feeling especially low. We use words to motivate our friends, whether they are ours, or quotes from others we find in our day to day life. So here are some words for your average weekday, to live by or to tell someone else:

1. " Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo." - Jon Sinclair

If you're anything like me, you might linger over your mistakes for too long. But there has never been any good in that; all you can do is learn from it without allowing it to define you.

2. "People generally see what they look for and hear what they listen for." - Harper Lee

This derives from Lee's beloved "To Kill A Mockingbird," but it still resonates out of context.

3. "If we wait until we're ready, we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives." - Lemony Snicket

A lot of the time, we put things off in fear of the unknown. But life doesn't start when you're ready, and the best you can do is take it as it comes.

4. "There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind." - C.S. Lewis

Personally, I have experienced rapid change in my life all at once, and it can be truly overwhelming. I still feel this change quite often, but what's comforting is to know that everything I'm looking for is right in front of me, not in the past.

5. "There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man, true nobility is being superior to your former self." - Ernest Hemingway

Even the best of people look to become better than those around them, but such advances are futile. What I've learned is that, the only person you should focus on being better than is who you were yesterday.

6. "I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life, and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do." - Georgia O'Keeffe

I have quickly learned that fear is capable of keeping you from doing all the things you want to do. But when you learn to get over those feelings, you'll gain from the experience regardless of if you failed or not.

7. "We do not need magic to transform the world. We carry all the power need inside ourselves already." - J.K. Rowling

I find it especially astounding how many beautiful things have been created and achieved by humans alone. What I've learned is that these things did not happen because of some superhuman powers, and that we are all capable of moving mountains, regardless of how small we might feel.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.
