Walking with others

Emma Bayliss |  16 August 2017

Some words of wisdom to carry with you, to remind you that we’re not alone in our journey. 

‘Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.’ - Hellen Keller

‘None of us go to where we are alone. Whether the assistance we received was obvious or subtle, acknowledging someone’s help is a big part of understanding the importance of saying thank you, thank you.’ - Harvey Mackay

‘For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for only beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness: and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.’ - Audrey Hepburn

‘Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.’ - Joshua 1:9

‘Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with each other.’ - Thomas Merton

Emma Bayliss is a student at Loreto Mandeville Hall, Toorak, Vic.
