Quotable Words of Wisdom

Haven't had time to work on any deep blog ideas, so here are a few of my favorite quotes, from life experiences, from the Bible, from songs, and others from random places :)

"Amor vincit omnia (love conquers all)"

"You can love and lose, but you cannot love and fail, for when you love you become beautiful." ~Schuller

"Then the time came when the risk it took to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." ~Anais Nin

"Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." ~Proverbs 31

"You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need" ~Rolling Stones

"Just try your best, try everything you can.
And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away.
It just takes some time,
little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine,
everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
Hey, you know they're all the same.
You know you're doing better on your own, so don't buy in.
Live right now.
Yeah, just be yourself.
It doesn't matter if it's good enough for someone else.
It just takes some time,
little girl you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine,
everything (everything) will be alright (alright)."
~Jimmy Eat World

"Unaffected modesty is the sweetest charm of female excellence, the richest gem in the diadem of her honor." ~Webster's 1828 Dictionary

“The mind can make a heaven out of hell or a hell out of heaven.” ~Milton

"Laughter is the closest distance between two people." ~unknown

"I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I founded empires. But on what did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of people would die for Him."
~Napoleon Bonaparte

"...all the past is not a diminishing road but, instead, a huge meadow which no winter every quite touches..." ~William Faulkner

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. " ~1 John 4:18

"All of a sudden I slid right down her voice into her living room..." ~John Updike (A & P)

"Any fool can see something wrong with the system, but it takes a leader to fix the system." ~Dr. Towles

"Take my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like You have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks Yours
Everything I am for Your Kingdom's cause
As I pass from Earth into eternity..."

*Wisdom of a Kindergartener*
Me: Do you have a question?
Girl: No, I have an answer!
Me: Yeah, what's that?
Girl: I wanted to tell everyone, that God loves you even when you're bad!

"He who will pass life away in bounding from one pleasure to another, must not complain if he acquires neither wisdom nor respectability of character."

"You cannot love a fellow-creature fully till you love God."
~CS Lewis

"Surely God is my Salvation; I will trust and not be afraid, The Lord, The Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation." ~Isaiah 12:2

"...There was a tanging in the midnight air- silence was dead and sound not yet awoken- Life cracked like ice!- one brilliant note and there, radiant and pale, you stood... and spring had broken..." ~This Side of Paradise

"Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. I say, fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy and who will love you the same way back. How do you find him? Well, you forget your head, and you listen to your heart. And I'm not hearing any heart. Cause the truth is, honey, there's no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love, well, you haven't lived a life at all. But you have to try, cause if you haven't tried, you haven't lived." ~Meet Joe Black

Savoring words,
Mrs. Rochester
