Quotes About Shelter From The Storm

"I also enjoy canoeing, and I suppose you will smile when I say that I especially like it on moonlight nights. I cannot, it is true, see the moon climb up the sky behind the pines and steal softly across the heavens, making a shining path for us to follow; but I know she is there, and as I lie back among the pillows and put my hand in the water, I fancy that I feel the shimmer of her garments as she passes.

Whether it comes from the trees which have been heated by the sun, or from the water, I can never discover. I have had the same strange sensation even in the heart of the city. I have felt it on cold, stormy days and at night. It is like the kiss of warm lips on my face." - Author: Helen Keller

Quotes About Encouragement And Support

"Pick someone in your life you admire. Your grandfather, an old college professor, a friend—it doesnt matter who, as long as you have total respect for them and you admire their life or accomplishments. Then when youre about to take a leap, visualize this person at your side, rooting for you, telling you how much they believe in you.
