7 strong quotes for when you need to be brave

    Sometimes, when the unexpected happens you realise that you have to put a significant amount of effort into being that much braver.   It’s hard.   Little tasks that you wouldn’t have thought twice about before suddenly feel like a big deal.

Marvellous Harry Potter quotes for when you’ve had a hard week
