Beautiful quote(s)

... that I came across when I was hunting for Calligraphy courses online.

"The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value."

"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection."

~ Thomas Paine

I don't whether they were quoted in continuation, but they do seem to go together.

(Hubs, you got to think about the second one.)

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly - ain't that the truth!!!

Yep, that one or ones like it always hold my attention and I keep thinking / talking about it long after I've read it.

I have a quote book (the boys tell me I am the biggest dork EVER) that I write down good quotes and these are going in there, right now in the middle of all my drama, they are perfect.
