"Well, dear, you must remember this, when you're going to fret and be low about any thing - An anxious mind is never a holy mind."
Margaret in Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell
"Look at other people through lenses of Love; see them from God's perspective."
Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
"But on you will go
though the weather be foul.
On you will go
though your enemies prowl.
On you will go
though the Hakken-Kraks howl.
Onward up many
a frightening creek,
though you arms may get sore
and your sneakers may leak.
On and on you will hike.
And I know you'll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are."
Oh, the Places You Will Go by Dr Seuss
"For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
And as a root out of dry ground.
He has no form or comeliness,
And when we see Him,
There is no beauty that we should desire Him."
"There's too many things I haven't done yet,
Too many sunsets I haven't seen.
You can't waste the day wishing it'd slow down.
You would've thought by now
I'd have learned something."
"Many the Miles" by Sara Bareilles
"Watch the sunrise at least once a year, put a lot of marshmallows in your hot chocolate, lie on your back and look at the stars, never buy a coffee table you can't put your feet on, never pass up a chance to jump on a trampoline, don't overlook life's small joys while searching for the big ones."
H. Jackson Brown Jr.
"Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it."
"We love others best when we love God most."
