Quotations & Lyrics on SoaringTM

Reading inspirational quotes and listening to uplifting lyrics have helped to pick up my spirits during times I was feeling low. Sometimes, it seems that all one needs is the right quote, poem, song or inspirational message at the crucial moment to help shift a bad mood into a better one or help provide some needed perspective on a loss or life crisis. Reading and re-reading inspirational messages can help serve as a mantra to focus upon not allowing life's circumstances to get a person down, helping to realize that he/she can survive.

Since college, I have had inspirational messages posted in my apartment as posters, cards or sayings to serve as visual reminders, postive cues to help make my surroundings more up-beat and optimistic. This was especially important during medical school and residency training, when the positive reinforcement, thanks and recognition for a job well-done often was scarce in coming.

The Soaring™ Quotes and Lyrics contain a collection of inspirational messages, quotes and lyrics along the theme of "soaring" or "flying." They were selected to serve as an "Emergency Pick-Me-Up" and a grief AIDE to help soothe the heart, lift the spirit and allow us to dream dreams "of things that are not and should be.

...and over our heads
will float the bluebird,
singing of beautiful and
impossible things,
of things that are lovely
and that never happened,
of things that are not
and that should be.

Oscar Wilde


People who soar are those who refuse to sit back, sigh and wish things would change.
They neither complain of their lot nor passively dream of some distant ship coming in.
Rather, they visualize in their minds that they are not quitters;
they will not allow life's circumstances to push them down and hold them under.
