Lovely Quotes: Steve Jobs {RIP}

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs, Stanford commencement speech 2005

Lovely Quotes: Little Engine That Could

“I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I know I can.”

― Little Engine That Could

My week has been so busy, I feel like I’m on information overload.  As I sat at my desk today, and crossed another item off my to-do list, a quote from a sweet children’s book that I’m sure you’ve all read, The Little Engine That Could, popped into my head: “I think I can, I think I can…”

Just thinking about a little kiddo somewhere reading this book made my mood instantly lighter!

Happy Hump-Day,
