Writing on the Wall

By: Gabriela Yareliz

I am cleaning out my office because a new adventure awaits. My eyes fell on quotes I have on post-its on the wall. The first is by Will Durant, and it says, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act but a habit.”

Other quotes on my walls say:

“A man who procrastinated in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.” Hunter S. Thompson

“If it’s truly important, schedule it. Is it a dream or a goal? If it isn’t on the calendar, it isn’t real.” Khaled Hosseini

“We believe in human kindness.” Folks at Magnolia

“Never underestimate the power of hope.”

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Proverbs 18:21

“I am with you always, even unto the end.” Jesus

And my favorite quote, which was on my door: “They thought they could bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds.” Mexican Proverb

These quotes really shaped my approach to my work and life, and they will continue to. I hope they inspire you as much as they inspire me.
