Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of…
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
I’m too busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener.
If you have to choose between being kind and being right, choose being kind and you will always be right.
Death ends a life, not a relationship.
( Mitch Albom )
You can’t fix yourself by breaking someone else.
You know it’s cold outside when you go outside and it’s cold.
Sometimes, being alone is very important.
It makes you realise that you always need ‘yourself’.
( Rose Winfold )
You can’t control other people.
You can only control your reactions to them.
They tried to bury us.
They didn’t know we were seeds.
Knowing it may never come again is what makes some moments so sweet and so special.
( Eileen Hutchison, 1926-2008 )
Nobody notices your sorrow or your pain.
But everyone notices your mistakes.
Life is all about finding people who are your kind of crazy.
Your life will improve when you stop caring about what others think of you and what they are doing.
( Dion Felsrow )
Be wise enough to walk away from the nonsense around you.
There’s no better feeling than going to bed at night and not having to set an alarm for tomorrow morning.
You may not be able to control someone’s bad behaviour, but you can control how long you hang around and put up with it.
( Florence Emily Hookins, 1896-1962 )
Nobody is too busy.
It’s just a matter of priorities.
You never lose.
You either win or you learn.
That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.
( Emily Dickinson )
There are millions of people in the world who would love to have your bad days.
If just one person remembers something good you did for them, then maybe your life was worthwhile.
This is your life and its ending one moment at a time.
( Chuck Palahniuk )
If you start looking at the hearts of people instead of their face, life becomes clear.
Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank.
Give a man a bank and he can rob a nation.
If you’re reading this.
Congratulations, you’re alive.
If that’s not something to smile about, then I don’t know what is.
( Chad Sugg )
Your best teacher is your last mistake.
You don’t need religion to have morals.
If you can’t determine right from wrong, then you lack empathy.
If you care about something you have to protect it.
If you’re lucky enough to find a way of life you love.
You have to find the courage to live it.
( John Irving )
No one has the right to demand that you sacrifice your principles and only an idiot would expect you to do so.
What you believe is for you alone to decide.
If others can’t live with that, they will have to live elsewhere.
Man alone measures time.
Man alone suffers a fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.
Courage is contagious.
When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.
( Billy Graham )
When asked how they managed to stay together for 67 years, the woman replied:
“We were born in a time where if something was broke, you fixed it. Not throw it away.”
We don’t always need advice.
Sometimes, all we need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart that understands.
The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.
( John F. Kennedy )
I will never be a morning person.
I am too much in love with the moon and the stars.
Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.
Help someone’s soul heal.
Walk out of your house like a shepherd.
( Rumi )
Our loving God has promised me that when the time is right
You will step out of the darkness and meet me in the light.
What we allow to happen is what will continue.
There is no such thing as ‘away’.
When we throw anything away it must go somewhere.
( Annie Leonard )
Faith is seeing light with your heart when all your eyes see is darkness.
Just as darkness is the absence of light.
Evil is the absence of God.
Above all, don’t lie to yourself.
The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others.
And having no respect he ceases to love.
Sometimes I just look up, smile and say:
“I know that was you. Thank You.”
A Moment In Time ..
Our life is only a moment in time.
Only important to those who love us,
Those who care for us,
And those who depend on us.
Our life, whether long or short, is only a moment in time.
Always choose people that are better than you.
Always choose people that challenge you and are smarter than you.
Always be the student.
( Sandra Bullock )
No one notices your tears.
No one notices your sadness.
No one notices your pain
But they all notice your mistakes.
Nothing matters very much.
And very few things matter at all.
When you can’t look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark.
As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality exist in our world, none of us can truly rest.
( Nelson Mandela )
Not everyone deserves to know you.
Let them criticise who they think you are.
Money will buy a bed but not sleep,
Books but not brains,
A house but not a home,
Medicine but not health,
Luxuries but not culture,
Amusements but not happiness,
A passport to everywhere but heaven.
Of all the people in the world those who want the most are those who have the most.
Being powerful is like being a lady.
If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.
( Margaret Thatcher )
Never stop doing your best just because someone doesn’t give you credit.
( Dion Felsrow )
Very often it’s the people with a broken soul who try to help you.
Those who are awake live in a state of constant amazement.
( Buddha )
It takes nothing to join the crowd.
It takes everything to stand alone.
( Hans F Hanson )
Life is a game with snakes on every level.
Nature gives us everything for free.
Nature doesn’t charge us any money.
All Nature asks of us is that we protect it.
( Florence Emily Hookins )
The future is uncertain
The end I cannot see.
But all I need to know is
My family are safe and free.
I don’t regret the things I did wrong.
I regret the good things I did for the wrong people.
The battle over flesh and blood cannot compare to the battle for the heart.
( Ted Dekker )
There are millions of poor souls in the world who would love to have your bad days.
Beauty may have fair leaves, yet bitter fruit.
I’ve reached the point where I hardly care whether I live or die.
The world will keep on turning without me.
I can’t do anything to change events anyway.
( Anne Frank, 1929-1945 )
Many see only themselves and care only about themselves.
And never see the beauty that surrounds them.
Sometimes people need reminding how bad things can get to appreciate how good things are now.
A long dispute means that both parties are wrong.
A rare soul.
A pure spiritual being.
A traveller between the spiritual and material worlds.
A herald of proclamations.
A conveyor of wisdom.
A messenger of truth.
A protector and guide.
You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you.
( C.S. Lewis )
