With spring semester upon us, and therefore stresses of homework, jobs, clubs and other social commitments lurking, I thought it would be appropriate to compile a list of uplifting quotes to possibly refer to during troubling times. I know that I find myself looking through bible quotes on the internet when I am stressed or troubled just for some peace of mind that I am not alone. No matter your religious beliefs I think that many could find this list comforting during trials.
