"Like the elephant, we are unconscious of our own strength. When it comes to understanding the power we have to make a difference in our own lives, we might as well be asleep.If you want to make your dreams come true, wake up. Wake up to your own strength. Wake up to the role you play in your own destiny. Wake up to the power you have to choose what you think, do, and say."--Keith Ellis, Bootstraps

  1. It's hard for me to wake up when I can never sleep from reading blogs all night long! I've wasted too many days sleeping because I can't at night. What a waste. I need to get back on a more productive schedule. Amazing how these pictures truly depict the strength of the herd.

    Beautiful quote.

  2. Thank you Patricia, this is just what I needed to be reminded of this week!

  3. Hi Joni
    The strength of the herd, what a beautiful way to put it. Get some sleep.

  4. Hi All the Best
    When I read this quote I felt like I needed the reminder also.

  5. I need to print this one and save it for one of "those days".

  6. Wonderful quote, Patricia!

  7. I so need to remember this. I don't want to live life by default.

    PS I am about to post a query for you on my blog tonight.

  8. Hi Peak, BA & Suzie
    Thanks for your comments.

  9. Hi Maryam
    I will check out the query you have for me. You have my curiosity peaked.

    provocative thought, patricia. I cannot think of better accompanying images.

  11. What a wonderful quote! I am totally obsessed w/ elephants right now (I think it's subliminally from "Water for Elephants"). The Company Store has the cutest elephant sheets in the latest catalog. They don't go with anything in my house, and I don't have kids, but I am still very tempted to buy them :)

  12. What a admirable quote! I am absolutely bedeviled elephants appropriate now (I anticipate it's subliminally from "Water for Elephants"). The Company Store has the cutest albatross bedding in the latest catalog. They don't go with annihilation in my house, and I don't accept kids, but I am still actual tempted to buy them
