Dare To Live

Sarah Doughty

“In order to live, you must
put one foot in front of the other,
and then do it all over again.”

After all that’s happened, I still have more to overcome. But I know I’ll make it. I have to. All it takes is getting out of bed every day, putting one foot in front of the other, and doing it all over again. It might seem impossible, but living is worth it.

Pushing the Envelope to Climb New Heights – Daily Quote

Jo Hawk


Human beings like to push the envelope, fight in the arena, blaze new trails, and test their limits. Every individual has a unique, set of tolerable risks. Not all mountaineers want to climb Mount Everest, some prefer to base jump from a two-thousand-foot cliff. It is all about the precise balance of risk vs. reward. We have different definitions of acceptable danger. In accessing our tolerance, we consider the special skills that give us certain advantages, and we define our compelling reason.

There are thousands of reasons to quit, to stay in a safe place, to not try. To succeed, you must dig deep and identify your main purpose, your motivation to groom your mental and physical strength. It will push you to discover the unknown when others would stop, it is what keeps you going.

This month many writers are pushing their limits, reaching for the magic number of 50,000 written…

Without You ~ A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

Walt's Writings

I cannot begin to imagine
A world without you
I don’t want to even think about it
But I have to write about it
It haunts me
These words will never be enough
To explain what I feel
Our lives are so intertwined
These could be no world for me
Without you in it
I don’t want to live my life
Without you

~The Tennessee Poet~

Art of Quotation

“Picture the prince, such as most of them are today: a man ignorant of the law, well-nigh an enemy to his people’s advantage, while intent on his personal convenience, a dedicated voluptuary, a hater of learning, freedom and truth, without a thought for the interests of his country, and measuring everything in terms of his own profit and desires.”

Desiderius Erasmus, Dutch, philosopher, book quote from “In Praise of Folly”, 1515. Translation by Betty Radice,1990, Penguin

“I love you (probably)” – Nayana Nair

it rains in my heart

I wish falling for you was easier
but it isn’t, it could never be
that is not how you like it-
easy love goes only as far as that
and maybe that is why I loved you.
Or maybe that’s what I tell myself.
Everything I tell myself is a whisper,
a secret from you.
I tell myself stories of a ‘you’
that probably never existed.
I hope you never get to hear them,
for now even my sacrifices feel like betrayals.
I am afraid, till the end
my heart would only be able to love the fiction of you.
I am afraid, till the end
you would remain unloved.
Even when you don’t deserve to be.
That hurts me more than knowing that
even I cannot be truly loved by you.
