10 Things: Quotes to Inspire Your Life

Hey there!

Ah, November. Cooling weather, falling leaves and, if it’s a special year down here in the South, the possibility of actually enjoying some hot chocolate without the salt from a sweat mustache. Oh, the many beautiful things about fall weather.

Then there’s the not-so-beautiful: the winter colds, the mid-semester slump for us students and the never-quite-warm-enough toes. It’s enough to dim your candle, that’s for sure.

But never fear! PrintedFeet is here with some of my favorite awesome quotes from a few of the most eloquent authors to ever pick up a pen. Past and present, they have graced us with thoughts that will help propel us onward to our future. And get us through these last few weeks of classes. Huzzah!

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
