If I need some encouragement, I often look back to what he says because he puts things so clearly you can't fail to remind yourself why you chose homeschool in the first place.
John Holt has lots of excellent homeschool quotes which can give us all much needed encouragement, and you can see more in my page comparing homeschooling and public schooling.
Since John Taylor Gatto taught for 30 years and won the New York City Teacher of the Year award I find using his quotes particularly useful when it comes to dealing with the relatives, which can be one of the bad things about homeschooling that we all face from time to time!

I've used many more quotes from him to give us all encouragement on my page on homeschool versus public schooling.
