Courage

You carry so much love in your heart. Give some to yourself.

Retrieved from the Motivation app

Courage
is a beating heart
which knows it will stop
beating one day, yet it still continues
beating, bravely away inside a chest
which serves as its place of rest.

The Universe

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Jim Ryun

The universe
is like a giant classroom
and you are but a learner
with circumstance as your teacher
and everyone else your classmate.
Even though not all of us are good academics
we should never despair
for so long as we work together
to solve our problems
the sooner we will learn
to live, our lives
to the best of our abilities.

Bees of a sting

There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.

Roger Staubach

according to the principle of opposites attract
you and i were never supposed to meet.
i was an optimist and so where you
science did not want us together, but nature did
because busy bees of a sting swarm together.
so even though we were never supposed to meet
we did and the buzz of excitement I felt as i kissed you
was sweeter even than the honey taste of your lips.
