Inspire with Gussto!

Did you ever see a quote you believed was perfect for your mood, expression, situation, or just life in general?  I am always finding these, wanting to share their inspiration. I did this when I taught (and had my students copy them, cite the source, and then apply them to their lives), and I even decorate my house and social media pages with them. However, there are always a few that stand out as my all time favorites, and I thought it would be fun to share them with you. 

Folks will find that the quotes I like focus on bringing out the best in people and helping all know that their life is amazing.

We will begin with my favorites. I would love to hear what you think.


“As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has- or ever will have- something inside that is unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.” 
― Fred Rogers, You Are Special: Neighborly Wit And Wisdom From Mister Rogers


Why would you want to be mean to someone who is trying to learn something that you love?

That you are here - that life exists, and identity;

That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.

-Walt Whitman
