Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
A brave arm makes a short sword long
I'm not funny. What I am is brave.
If you think the world will treat you fairly because you're a nice person, then you probably think a bill wont charge you because your a vegetarian :D
Those who are lifting the world upward and onward are those who encourage more than criticize.
There are pools that don't reflect the sky
~Bodie Thoene an excerpt from The Return to Zion
God's greatest pleasure is making miracles from the dust or our despair
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
~John R. Wooden
Eve was not taken out of Adams head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him.. <3 <3 <3
The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock
Forgiveness is a promise, not a feeling.
We cannot live in the future, but neglecting our current obligations will disqualify us for tomorrows responsibilites.
The path you take with your feet should never contradict the conviction of your heart.
You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.
~Indira Ghand, 1971
Talking and eloquence are not the same: to speak and to speak well are two things. A fool may talk, but a wise man speaks.
The height of your accomplishments will equal the depth of your convictions.
~ William F. Scolavino
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars
Just because someone doesn't love you in the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they've got.
Never fear shadows.. that always means there is a light shining somewhere
For tonight I shall end with this...
I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and sage with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.
