What Lies Behind Us and What Lies Before Us are Tiny Matters Compared to What Lies Within Us. Ralph Waldo Emerson

You have got it in you. Go for it. Just do it. All of these come to mind when you think about Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Our past and future are not as important the spirit and talent that is within us. It does not matter where you came from. Your background and education are important, but do not predict the future.

The prospect for tomorrow may look good or even bad at this moment, but things change in a heartbeat and what might have been is totally different tomorrow.

What is truly important is the spirit within us that move us forward in the toughest times. Sharing our time and even money with others gives meaning to our lives. It is that spark within us the truly matters.
