Not sure of the Latin, it's quoted in Alias Grace.

I love that. Here are two of my favourites

"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear" - Ambrose Redmoon

"You've got a lot of choices. If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore and you're not smiling on a regular basis, try another choice" - Steven D Woodhull

Sensible. Gets me through a lot of things.

That's a great quote, ILook!

I like:

Coping, through frightened, is true courage (Dr Claire Weekes)

To make others less happy is a crime (Roger Ebert)

I'm stubborn as those garbage bags that time cannot decay, I'm junk but I'm still holding up this little wild bouquet (Leonard Cohen)

AgentCooper Sat 04-Feb-17 22:36:46

Sorry, that should read 'though frightened,' not 'through.'

Necessity is the mother of invention.

When you really need to, you find a way.

The time will pass anyway

"Judge a man not by how he treats his friends, but by how he treats his enemies"

No idea who said it, saw it quoted somewhere and it made me go hmmm.

Evilstepmum01 Sat 04-Feb-17 22:49:59

Every year, everything I have ever learned in my lifetime,
leads back to this: the fires and the black river of loss
whose other side is salvation,
whose meaning none of us will ever know.
To live in this world you must be able to do three things:
to love what is mortal
:to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it;
and when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.

In Blackwater Woods by Mary Oliver.

I love this poem, this is the last few verses and mean a lot to me

'A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything'

An Irish proverb apparently! I've found it to be very true grin

SharkiraSharkira Sat 04-Feb-17 22:53:26

No idea who said it it's from a criminal minds episode -

'There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness but of power. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief and unspeakable love'.

Also -

'A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are for'

Stoneagemum Sat 04-Feb-17 22:53:31

If you have a problem then it's your fucking problem! - Pete, Green Street

Love that quote, and apply it happily to my life especially when people are judge

'...and whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.'

DJKKSlider Sat 04-Feb-17 22:58:21

"A wise man knows not to play leap frog with a unicorn."

"To be truly wise one must admit when they know nothing."
