Encouragement can be one thing that can ground you during these trying times. With that in mind, here are some great sayings to help you feel calmer and avoid insanity during the quarantine.

3. “Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside of them was superior to circumstance.” – Bruce Barton

5. "Everything you do has an impact. Who you are – that you are – actually matters. In an interconnected world (the only kind we have), our actions and the actions of others are inextricably linked- we are always and forever in a dance of mutual influence with those with whom we directly and indirectly participate. It is the unavoidable reality of being social creatures, only magnified by an ever-increasingly complex and interwoven societal structure. We matter to each other.” — Paul Greiner
6. "And you ask 'What if I fall?' Oh but my darling, what if you fly?" - Erin Hanson
7. "Courage, dear heart." - C. S. Lewis

10. "This too shall pass." - Persian Sufi Poets
I hope these words brought some encouragement and simple joy into your life during these hard times!
Stay safe and stay at home!
