    ‘ My favourite quote is
    failure is an event not a person’ (I think it’s by ziggler?)
    As far as I’m concerned no one is a failure but we can sometimes fail and by failing we often learn valuable lessons which help us to succeed next time when we try again. Sometimes we even learn that something isn’t for us or doesn’t suit us and so we don’t try it again, that’s okay too.

    I love the words of Maya Angelou! It's always so delicate and well put.

    "You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have."

    "Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away."

    "Courage – you develop courage by doing small things like just as if you wouldn’t want to pick up a 100-pound weight without preparing yourself."

    I wouldn't necessarily say I have a favourite quote, just a lot of sayings and mottos that I admire.

    Recently I've enjoyed the motto of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, which was "Sic parvis magner" - greatness from small beginnings.I like it because it's Latin and very few people will know what it means unless they go out of their way to learn and translate it. Plus it's motivational and fun to say :)

    Sun Tzu the Japanese philosopher said
    "If you wait by the river long enough, the bodies of your enemies will float by."

    Having been abused and mistreated many times throughout my life I take comfort that eventually what goes around comes around and people get their comeuppance. 

    And one of my favourite Latin phrases
    In Vino Veritas

    In wine there is truth
