Okay, life is weird right now. It’s hard to know the right things to say or do to offer comfort to those who are feeling stressed and uncertain (aren’t we all?).
So, instead of trying to offer advice, try to find comfort in the words of others. From writers and poets to influencers, they have the words when you can’t find them.
“What I learned in this tragedy was the eternal lesson of good people going bad.”
― Steven Ramirez, Tell Me When I'm Dead
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
― Neil Gaiman, Coraline
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
― Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
― Marilyn Monroe
“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
― C.S. Lewis
“Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
― Michael Jordan
