Doubt Is Beautiful


DOUBT is the doorway to investigation, to truth, and to discovery. It’s the fire that burns down that which we easily assume and forces us to appreciate our own inclination toward criticism and wonder.

Doubt is a willingness to say, “I’m not sure, but I want to find out!” – and that’s why doubt should be celebrated and encouraged rather than demonized and shoved in a closet.

Doubt is beautiful and a little scary but worth every moment because it drives us to know more and stop settling for less.

Courage Is Not the Absence of Fear


Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that
something else is more important than fear.

The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all.

From now on you’ll be traveling the road between
who you think you are and who you can be.

The key is to allow yourself to make the journey.

– Meg Cabot
