I call on you, O God, for you will answer me: give ear to me and
hear my prayer. Show the wonder of your great love....keep
me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.
The fulfillment of God's promise depends entirely on trusting God
and his way, and then simply embracing him and what he does.
God's promise arrives as pure gift.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in
which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to
yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing
that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.
Courage is mastery of fear-not absence of fear.
One must not lose desires.
They are mighty stimulants to creativeness,
to love and to long life.
By all the means you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.
No man is a failure who is enjoying life.
Do not put your faith in what statistics say until you have carefully
considered what they do not say.
If it ain't one damn thing, it's another.
The best thing about the future is that
it comes only one day at a time.
Never to suffer would never
to have been blessed.
EDGAR ALLEN POE
Worrying does not empty
tomorrow of its troubles
- it empties today of its strength.
