An Inspiring Quote

From a ceremony in which President Clinton and Hillary are getting their portraits hung for posterity in the White House:

"I was thinking of, President and Mrs. Bush, on the way over here today, which ones of these pictures I liked the most, and in the darkest days, which ones helped me the most.

I like John Singer Sargent's portrait of Theodore Roosevelt over there. But there's one over in the Cabinet Room by a man named Laszlo of Theodore Roosevelt. I used to look at it all the time when I felt bad and I worried, "Was the war in Bosnia going to come out all right? Would the Kosovar refugees ever be able to go home?"

Because if you look at that picture, Theodore Roosevelt, who was known as our most macho, bully, self-confident president, you look at that picture and you see here's a human being who's scared to death and not sure it's going to come out all right. And he does the right thing, anyway. That's what I saw in that picture."
--Bill Clinton

Think of that the next time you're anxious and stressed over how something is going to turn out. Even the most lauded presidents have been less than confident that things are going to turn out as desired, insecure, and afraid, and have soldiered on, fueled by nothing but hope and the confidence that they're doing the right thing.
