from a "click and hope" photographer


“Courage doesn't always roar.

Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,

"I will try again tomorrow.”

The quote is so true and honest.
The pic is great too, says it all.
I am starting a photo themed Wednesday, hope you have a look!

Don't sleeping lions look soooo huggable!
Somehow I don't think I'd be hugging this fellow though! :)
Great quote too!

Your quotes always hit the right spot! That lion looks adorable, while sleeping!!!
I liked the one about the tears, it rings so true for me.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Having a blogging catch-up session! Love this beautiful picture and the quote.
In fact I love all the quotes....where do you get them from?

RUTH said...

lilymarlene; it varies....quite a few I just google around for (there are a few quote sites), sometimes I've just read it and then store it away until the time comes when I've taken a photo that I can put with it. I really want to try and use my own photos so have a lot of "draft" posts waiting for a picture.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
