Quotes About About Being Yourself

"So the challenge, as you contemplate your next opportunity to be boring or remarkable, is to answer these two questions: (1) "If I get criticized for this, will I suffer any measurable impact? Will I lose my job, get hit upside the head with a softball bat, or lose important friendships?" If the only side effect of the criticism is that you will feel bad about the criticism, then you have to compare that bad feeling with the benefits youll get from actually doing something worth doing.

Quotes About Boy Cousins

"The ceremony was fast so we wouldnt be caught. When it was over, the men all whispered Mazel tov and climbed back onto their shelves. I went up to the boy and pressed the wooden horse into his hands, the only present I could give him. The boy looked at me with big, round eyes. Had I ever been so young? We are alive, I told him. We are alive, and that is all that matters. We cannot let them tear us from the pages of the world.I said it as much for me as for him. I said it in memory of Uncle Moshe, and my mother and father, and my aunts and other uncles and cousins. The Nazis had put me in a gas chamber. I had thought I was dead, but I was alive. I was a new man that day, just like the bar mitzvah boy. I was a new man, and I was going to survive." - Author: Alan Gratz

Quotes About Acknowledging

"I made cranberry sauce, and when it was done put it into a dark blue bowl for the beautiful contrast. I was thinking, doing this, about the old ways of gratitude: Indians thanking the deer theyd slain, grace before supper, kneeling before bed.
