I am not the kind of person who posts motivational quotes and aphorisms to my Facebook status or to my Twitter account. And when my friends do, I usually just skip over it, as those sorts of things are not why I hang out in online social spaces.

But earlier this week, in very short order, three separate Twitter friends posted such things, and for some reason it hit me in a very positive way.

It’s worth a try.
