    Do you read positive or motivational quotes to help you through the day?

    I find that reading a few each morning really helps to pick me up. Here is one I just found,

    It is not the strength of the body that counts, but the strength of the spirit. ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

      Quotes really help me focus on what's important so that I can "let go" of the day-to-day grind.

      you know that Tolkien wrote much of his stories for his children, while in trenches on the WW ! front lines. Other soldiers went crazy--had a hard time after the war--but Tolkien gave the world a great gift.

      I think this one way children are such a gift, as we can think of them, and we can be brave-loving-and escape our misery and terror as tolkien did.

      I love them and get an email each day with some quotes of the day. Sometimes there are some gems in them, other times not so much. But I still can find something positive to start each day.

      I like most of them, I see so many since I'm online most of the day that they all seem to run together, but occasionally one really stands out. I usually save those and share them here on the pinboard.

      I have printed out my favorites and have them hanging on my wall at work within my direct eyesight. Not only do they provide tremendous inspiration to me, I know that my colleagues can see them and perhaps they'll see a more personal side of my character (I'm in a new job and have not shared my cancer story with them yet).

      I think I have found some of my favorites here on WhatNext. Thanks, Greg!
