Don’t let a bad day make you feel like you’ve had a bad life.
The Bible praises givers and scorns takers. Givers give, because they are grateful. Takers take, because their self-centeredness overwhelms any gratitude they might have. Since happiness flows from gratitude, takers-only breed their own unhappiness.
Never be ashamed of how you were created. Because you are born into one skin. You can scar it, stretch it, burn it, mark it, tan it, and peel it. But you are always in it so you might as well love it.
In life you will realise that there is a purpose for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, and some will teach you. But most important are the ones that bring the best in you. Those are the ones worth keeping around.
The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. Growing happens when what you know changes how you live.
Most of the bad things you worry about will never happen. Most of the bad things that do happen will have never have crossed your worried mind.
Whenever somebody discredits you, and tells you that you can’t do something, keep in mind that they are speaking from within the boundaries of their own limitations.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. . .
When you’re up, your friends know who you are. When you’re down, you know who your friends are.
Your wisdom and strength inspires me.
