Believe

I've been working diligently to make glass lockets for my Etsy shop. For a while I was remiss in keeping it up but now I'm a little more on the ball. This week's APR challenge theme is "illustrate a word" and I decided to take the opportunity to make another glass locket! Hey, any opportunity to combine things and cut down on time. The word I chose was BELIEVE.

Words have always meant a lot to me. There are a few very special books that I've read over the years that have changed me. Heinlein's "Time Enough For Love" and "Friday", Richard Bach's "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" and Zenna Henderson's "The Anything Box" and "Holding Wonder". In Holding Wonder one of the short stories is called The Believing Child. I loved that phrase, I was a believing child, I believed in the Universal good. I still use that as my most basic foundation. I thought I'd look up some of my favorite quotes about belief for you to enjoy...
"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in being strong when everything seems wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
~Audrey Hepburn  
To believe in something,
and not to live it,
is dishonest.

~Mahatma Gandhi
When someone shows you who they are,
believe them the first time.

~Maya Angelou
When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.
~Walt Disney
Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.
~Henry Ford
