moon glow you're all that I can call my own.

Funny Birthday Quotes
It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the
pebble in your shoe.
You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you've climbed a mountain.
"Never be afraid to seek help to get back on your feet. It doesn't matter how many times you lose your way, keep on keepin' on and
one of these times you'll finally reach the destination you've been looking for."

Start calling yourself healed, happy, whole, blessed, and prosperous.
Stop talking to God about how big your mountains are, and start talking to
your mountains about how big your God is!
Quotes about God
Courage wasn't a matter of taking the whole mountain in a single massive leap.
Courage was taking it one step at a time, doing what was necessary
now, preparing for the next step, and refusing to worry about whether some step in the future would be the one that would break him.
Kell Tainer - Star War Quotes
No matter how tall the mountain is, it cannot block the sun.
...only if you've been in the deepest valley can you ever know how
magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.
When faced with a large project, remember you move a mountain one
stone at a time.
Words of Encouragement
It is the faith that steers us through stormy seas, faith that moves mountains and faith that jumps across the ocean.
From a distance, it may appear that there is only one mountain.
Sometimes, the distance to the first mountain is enough of a stretch
before looking beyond. Life is much the same way in that we all
can see at least one mountain that's visible... Every person in every
country, in every city, town, village or rural area has a mountain in their life.
This mountain may take on several shapes and sizes but it is a mountain; it's
your personal mountain.
Byron Pulsifer, Motivational Mountains
If we never go through any valleys how will we know when we've
reached a mountain top? How will we know if the mountain is even
any good if all our lives we stay up on the mountain and never
experience any valleys? I know we'd all like to avoid those "valleys" at
all costs, but the most growth for anything happens during adversity.
Kim Bloomer, Adversity, What Is It Good For?
Adventure isn't hanging on a rope off the side of a mountain.
Adventure is an attitude that we must apply to the day to day
obstacles of life - facing new challenges, seizing new opportunities,
testing our resources against the unknown and in the process,
discovering our own unique potential.
You're off to great places! Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
so get on your way!
The funny thing though is how life's mountain seems to take on a
different pitch and steepness when they move out. It seems,
that for a short while anyways, one gets to delve into a normal life
doing what you always wanted to do, going anywhere you want
without having to put up with all the moans and funny faces a
daughter makes at you when she hits those teenage years.
Byron Pulsifer, Grrrrh Life's Mountains
So, what do you do to climb the mountain, to break the barrier,
and to move beyond a dream. The best dreams are those
that come to fruition. How is this done? The advice of William
Arthur Ward applies to this situation wherein he said, "Begin while others
are procrastinating. Work while others are wishing."
Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and
growth occurs while you're climbing it.
The mountain forged from the molehill, easily soldered
Can the molehill from the mountain so easily be moulded?
I don't think you can hack it down with an axe
The best way I can think of is to just relax.
Alessandra Liverani, How To Make A Mountain Out Of A Molehill
We all need to plant seeds in order to spring to life. Similarly, you can't
climb a mountain starting at the top. It takes preparation, tools, skills
and a set path to follow one step at a time.
Men trip not on mountains they trip on molehills.
Funny Quotes about Life
I feel there's an existential angst among young people. I didn't have that.
They see enormous mountains, where I only saw one little hill to climb.
Sergey Brin, Co-founder of Google
Inspirational Quotes for Students
"If we just sit around hoping, wishing, and wondering if our dreams will
come true, they won't. But if we have a dream and back it with faith and
action, mountains will crumble, doors will open, and people will show up
Seek not to climb to mountain's top
Nor sail the oceans wide
For Paradise's happy glade
Is waiting deep inside...
John McLeod, Seek Not To Climb...
Poems about Life
I am convinced that the jealous, the angry, the bitter and the egotistical
are the first to race to the top of mountains. A confident person enjoys
the journey, the people they meet along the way and sees life not
as a competition.
Shannon L. Alder
It's important to know that words don't move mountains.
Work, exacting work moves mountains.
Inspirational Quotes for Work
Do what you will, withdraw to the mountains, sit in a forest, you cannot
live in isolation. You can live only in relationship, and as long as relationship
is not understood, there can be no right action.
Right action comes in understanding relationship, which reveals
the process of oneself.
Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
Maybe you will have to accept blame for a situation you did not create,
or you may have to apologize even though you did nothing wrong.
But, the real point is that everyone faces a relationship mountain
sooner or later and that it is up to the individual who sees the
mountain to initiate the resolution.
The experienced mountain climber is not intimidated by a mountain - he
is inspired by it. The persistent winner is not discouraged by a problem
- he is challenged by it. Mountains are created to be conquered;
adversities are designed to be defeated; problems are sent to
be solved. It is better to master one mountain than a thousand foothills.
William Arthur Ward
Adventure isn't hanging on a rope off the side of a mountain.
Adventure is an attitude that we must apply to the day to day obstacles of life.
So you see I am not shut out from the region of the beautiful,
though my hand cannot perceive the brilliant colors in the sunset
or on the mountain, or reach into the blue depths of the sky.
Helen Keller, The World I Live In and Optimism: A Collection of Essays
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.
Josh Groban, You Raise Me Up
Good Graduation Songs
Our task, regarding creativity, is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible. No one can do more.
What's important is how frequently you're happy, not how intensely.
Those peaks of happiness - getting swept off your feet, scaling a
mountain top, winning a bundle in Las Vegas - are nice, but happiness
comes down to being quietly content most of the time.
Dr. Joyce Brothers
Your faith can move mountains and your doubt can create them.
Just remember that a mountain is not taken down in one big scoop
but is done by taking one small chuck away at time.
Byron Pulsifer, Do Or Do Not
However, some people are chronic procrastinators.
If you are constantly not getting things done and have a mountain
of excuses lined up to 'explain' the reasons why you are unable
to do them; then look in the mirror and you will see a 'procrastinator.'
K. B. Bryson, Overcoming Procrastination
Be like a mountain; do not let anything disturb your inner peace.
Never cry because you have mountains of problem in your hands to solve. Always smile because each problems will someday resolve.
It is not enough to sing when the sun shines and the road lies level.
We must learn to sing most lustily when the light fades and the
mountain is steep.
A single man of one, only pebbles can be moved, but many men together,
stands no mountain that can't move.
Robert M. Hensel
Great things are done when men and mountains meet; this is not done by jostling in the street.
Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you.
Short Positive Quotes
Men seek out retreats for themselves in the country, by the seaside,
on the mountains… nowhere can a man find a retreat more peaceful or
more free from trouble than his own soul.
Furl your passion with action, and let that action come from determination,
and where determination will guide you through the most difficult of
mountain passes just like a well-prepared engine.
Byron Pulsifer, Key Instructions For Life
The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.

worthwhile things. It isn't the mountain ahead that wears you out - it's the
grain of sand in your shoe.

In the latter years of your life, your happiness and your self-esteem
will be determined by the mountains you surmounted, the valleys
you climbed out of, and the life and/or career that you forged for yourself.
Life is full of nuances and bumps, and slides and hills. There is always
a challenge to meet, a mountain to climb, a river to cross
but there is also the beauty of the moment, the peace of a babbling
brook, the quiet solitude of sitting alone with nature,
and the comfort found in friendship.
Catherine Pulsifer, One Secret of Happiness
