Remember that if the opportunities for great deeds should never come, the opportunities for good deeds are renewed day by day. The thing for us to long for is the goodness, not the glory.
-- F.W. Faber
This is one of my most favorite sayings. I have it printed out and hanging up at my desk (see picture below... and yes that is a cow with string cheese pom-poms right below it) but I think this is such a wonderful quote because it reminds us that each day is new and allows the opportunity to be the person who we want to be.
