Persistent Grasses

Hope we develop that kind of persistence...

Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence. ~Hal Borland 

We are made to persist. That's how we find out who we are. ~Tobias Wolff 

Don't ever give up. Don't ever give in. 
Don't ever stop trying. Don't ever sell out. 
And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off. But never, ever, ever give up. ~Richelle E. Goodrich 

Determination gives you the resolve to keep going in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you. ~Denis Waitley 

He conquers who endures. ~Persius 

No matter how much falls on us, we keep plowing ahead. That's the only way to keep the roads clear. ~Greg Kincaid

I never thought that way about grasses. Might use this quote for GM. =))

Thanks for your inspirational quotes. I needed that. The grass is resilient, it can bend with the wind or fold in the ground but they still managed to survived. Resiliency is something we need to learn and relearn from time to time.

Oh, I love this post, and I love grass.

I should be careful saying the latter, actually since I live in Holland, 20 minutes away from Amsterdam! lol

Kidding aside, you inspired a post. :) I love taking pictures of the countryside where we live and I find looking at grass very soothing, they indeed have different shades of green.

This is what they say of Ireland, which we visited not so long ago, where most of the country is covered in grass.

I'll link to your blog once I come around with writing the post you've inspired. Thanks!

That passage about grasses brings back the memory of Meteor Garden days...somehow used the same words over and over again. I can't place why?

Thanks for the inspiring quotes. Life is full of surprises so always expect the unexpected. Just like the grass, people must learn to flow with the wind and be resilient in order to survive.
