You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’
—  Eleanor Roosevelt

“There’s no such thing as failure, honestly. If you try, you are leagues ahead of every other person who wants to do it but is too afraid to. Maybe start thinking about what you’re afraid to do, but really want to, and say FUCK IT. And just do it.” -Anna Akana

If you’re going through hell, keep going.
—  Winston Churchill (via Smile, Sugar.)
