Optimistic For 2011

I personally feel very optimistic for 2011 however I appreciate that perhaps many do not and sometimes we can feel that we are faced with brick wall after brick wall.

I have had a fair few of them myself but I do believe sometimes these walls and hurdles we sometimes face are simply ways of making us stronger. For those who are feeling less hopeful for 2011 I have listed a few Quotations below which I find really inspirational so would like to share them with you.:
