    Every once in a while I'll find a quote that resonates with me, motivates me, and reminds me of why I'm here and why overcoming my struggles is worth the effort. Reading over these can help me find the strength to push past the temptations and desires and find victory. I figured I would share some of these for everyone else in the hopes that it might help one of you win a battle you're in, or maybe one you'll be in in the future. Feel free to add any quotes that motivate or resonate with you as well!

    They can be faith related, religious, secular, whatever works for you. You never know if one of your favorite quotes can help someone else too!

    “In this place a mind was at work to negate the image of a free and intact man. It intended to rely on man power in the same way that it had relied on horsepower. It wanted units to be equal and divisable, and for that purpose man had to be destroyed as the horse had already been destroyed.”
    ― Ernst Jünger, The Glass Bees
