Quotes of Encouragement

 I wanted to share some "quotes of encouragement" today....and I was somewhat surprised that even though I've heard some of these "sayings" for many years....I had no idea who actually said them!!!
 
"When one door closes another door opens; 
but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us."
~ Alexander Graham Bell ~ 
 
"When you come to the end of your rope, 
tie a knot and hang on. "
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt ~ 
 
And this one....just made me smile!!!
:)

"I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!"
~ Dr. Seuss ~

I'm linking to.....
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
