Rising Quotations

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death.
Arthur Schopenhauer

The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.
Vince Lombardi

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The real power of the Buddha was that he had so much love. He saw people trapped in their notions of small separate self, feeling guilty or proud of that self, and he offered revolutionary teachings that resounded like a lion's roar, like a great rising tide, helping people to wake up and break free from the prison of ignorance.
Nhat Hanh
