Quote of the Week


We find in ourselves the strength to overcome every obstacle, which is a good thing, because we also find in ourselves every obstacle. Robert Brault

Once again we take a look at the insight and humor of Robert Brault.  His quotes have appeared on Roses to Rainbows from time to time as I seek out words of wisdom, inspiration and humor.  He is a freelance writer who has been contributing to various publications for over 40 years.  He has recently published a book titled Round Up The Usual Suspects: Thoughts On Just About Everything.


Today we focus on our strength.  Sometimes we think - I can't do that, or I'll never get through this (see last week's quote).  

For many of us our problems stem from us turning minor setbacks into road blocks. However, within ourselves we have the strength required to see us through, to overcome life's bumps and change the road blocks back into merely minor setbacks. 

In reality, though, not all of life's problems are just bumps in the road or minor setbacks that could have been changed or avoided by a different mindset, but we must still focus our inner strength to meet these challenges.

  1. So true. Sometimes.. oftentimes, finding that strength is difficult. Beautiful image, Linda.

    1. I agree. I am one of those who thought she "couldn't d"o or "get through" fill-in-the-blank, but I found the strength, so I know it's there. It's not always easy to do, though.

  2. It's amazing how, when you get over or through or demolish the roadblocks, how powerful it makes you feel...every step back firing you up for all the steps ahead. Awesome, Linda!

    PS: It's bitterly bitterly snowy and cold here. Feels distinctly like late January and nothing of autumn. Bizarre!

    1. Kim, than you. There is indeed power in strength, and it's always there whether we realize it or not.

      We are nearly as cold here and no snow, but it was the coldest night of the year last night, and it is up to a whopping 33 degrees (from 20 earllier).

  4. The photograph is great -- the sunlight on the tree just makes the color so much richer.

    I liked the quote and your discussion. I think sometimes our challenges are meant to pull that "inner strength" out of us and remind us that we can handle difficult situations.

    Thanks for this excellent reminder today:~) Hope all is well with you.
