Onward Quotations

Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.
Henry Ford

From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached.

'Let's just get on with it,' I felt. 'Onward' became my motto.
Karen Finerman
