My Favorite Quotes

So I guess some people are “extra wise” and say things the rest of us never think of! 🙂 My all time favorite though, is from the bible – “There is nothing the Lord cannot do.” _ *Luke 1:37* 🙂 You just have to love this one! 🙂

Here’s a compilation of some other of my favorite sayings, quotes, lines….whatever you prefer to call them. 🙂 

No man ever sunk under the burden of the day. It is when tomorrow’s burden is added to the burden of day that the weight is more than a man can bear. Never load yourself so. If you find yourself so loaded, at least remember this: it is your own doing, not God’s. He begs you to leave the future to Him and mind the present.

-George MacDonald

Life is a riddle.
We cannot expect to understand life’s twists and turns as they occur each day, and we greatly frustrate ourselves in the futile attempt. 
Be content to appreciate that there is an overarching purpose, though that purpose be known only to God, and to history.
Choose service. Choose joy. Accept the unknowing

~ Anon

Life provides losses and heartbreak.  But the greatest tragedy is to have the experience and miss the meaning.  I am determined not to miss that meaning.
~Robin Roberts

He had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion. _ Philippians 2:6-8

God has not promised skies always blue, flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God has not promised sun without rain, joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God has promised strength for the day, rest for the labor, light for the way, grace for the trials, help from above,
unfailing sympathy, undying love. Annie Johnson Flint

Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people – your family, friends, and coworkers, and even strangers you meet along the way.  _ Barbara Bush

I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer. _ Jim Carrey

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.  _(Dr. Seuss)

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived—this is to have succeeded.
― Bessie Anderson Stanley

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they’re not so bad. – Arnold H. Glasow

Laughter is a tranquilizer with no side effects.

_Arnold H. Glasgow

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. _ Steve Jobs

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the Air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four Balls – Family, Health, Friends and Spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.
_ Bryan Dyson

  1. When it comes to quotes i have so many favs; but this one is one of the front runners;

    The Man Actually in the Arena

    It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.
    — Theodore Roosevelt
