Some of My Favorite Quotes


       

Isaiah 49: 16
Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands;
thy walls are continually before Me.
Isaiah 40: 11
He shall feed His flock like a Shepherd:
He shall gather the lambs with His arm,
and carry them in His bosom,
 and shall gently lead those that are with young.


Pause friend and read
before you enter here.
This vine clad wall encloses holy ground.
Herein a mellowed garden
dreams away the years.
Steeped in serene sweet light,
 and muted sound.
Herein Tranquility and Peace abide.
For God walks here
at cool of evening tide.
Pause friend
and strip out from your heart
all vanity, all bitterness, all hate.
Quench for this hour
the fever of your fears.
Then treading softly,
 pass within this gate.
There, where the ancient trees wait
hushed and dim,
of the shadow of death
may you find God
 and walk awhile with Him.
~ Pearl C. Hiath


Faith
I will not doubt
though all my ships at Sea
come drifting home with broken
masts and sails;
I will Believe The Hand
which never fails
From seeming evil
worketh good for me;
And though I weep because
those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry,
while my best hopes lie shattered ~
'I Will Trust in Thee!'
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Do not wait for leaders; do it alone,
 person to person.
 ~ Mother Teresa

How we live at home is the acid test
for any Christian man or woman.
It is far easier to live an excellent life
 among our friends,
when we are putting our best foot forward
 and are conscious of public opinion,
than it is to live for Christ
 in our own home.
Our own family circle sees us
in our unguarded moments.
They see us when exhaustion and stress
fray our nerves.
Our own family circle knows
whether Christ lives in and through us.
~ Billy Graham

Woman
Woman was taken out of man ~
Not out of his head, to rule over him;
Nor out of his feet,
to be trampled under by him;
but out of his side,
to be equal to him ~
Under his arm,
that he might protect her,
and near his heart
that he might love her.
~ Matthew Henry


Praise
What a person praises is perhaps
a surer standard, even,
than what he condemns,
of his character,
information, and abilities.
~ Julius Charles Hare

A man can never be a true gentleman
in manner
until he is a true gentleman at heart.
~ Charles Dickens

I hold the precepts of Jesus as
delivered by Himself,
 to be the most pure,
 benevolent and sublime
which have ever been preached to man.
~ President Thomas Jefferson

The greater the man is,
the greater the courtesy.
~ Alfred Tennyson

A man's own good breeding
is the best security against
other people's ill manners.
~ Lord Chesterfield




Show me the man you honor, and
I will know what kind of man you are,
for it shows me
what your ideal of manhood is,
and what kind of a man
you long to be.
~ Thomas Carlyle


In company, guard your tongue;
in solitude, guard your heart.
Our words need watching;
but so also do our
thoughts and imaginations
which grow active
when alone.
~ Anonymous

A man is first startled by sin;
then it becomes pleasing,
then easy,
then delightful, then frequent,
then habitual, then confirmed.
The man is impenitent, then obstinate,
and then he is damned.
~ Jeremy Taylor


They who have loved together
have been drawn close;
they who have struggled together
are forever linked;
but they who have suffered together
have known the most Sacred bond of all.
~ Anonymous


Pride slays thanksgiving,
but a humble mind
is the soil out of which
thankfulness naturally grows.
A proud man (or woman)
is seldom a grateful man (or woman),
..and never thinks that
 he/she gets as much
as they deserve.
~ Henry Ward Beecher



JOY
It takes so little to make us glad;
Just a cheering clasp
 of a friendly hand,
Just a word
from one who can understand,
And we finish
 the task we long had planned,
And we lose
 the doubt and the fear we had ~
So little..it takes to make us glad.
~ Anonymous

No man or woman
 of the humblest sort
can really be
strong, gentle, pure and good,
without somebody being helped
and comforted
by the very existence of that goodness.
~ Phillips Brooks


Fruits
Their works do follow them.
Revelations 14: 13

Whatever you would make habitual,
practice (do) it;
and if you would not
make a thing habitual,
do not practice it,
but habitually give yourself
to something else.
(sow= reap)
~ Epictetus
When Home is ruled according to
God's Word,
angels might be asked to stay with us,
and they would not find themselves
out of their element.
~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Kindness

   
This day in honor I have toiled;
My shining crest is still unsoiled;
But on the mile I leave behind
Are those who say that I was kind.

The ministry of Kindness
is a ministry which may be achieved
by all men, rich and poor,
learned and illiterate.
Brilliance of mind and
capacity for deep thinking have
rendered great service to humanity,
but by themselves
they are impotent
to dry a tear or mend a broken heart.
~ Anonymous

Kindness has converted more sinners
than zeal, eloquence or learning.
~ Frederick William Faber

Every moment is the right moment
to be kind.
~ Anonymous


More hearts pine away in
secret anguish for unkindness from
those who should be their comforters
than for any other calamity in life.

Liberty
There is no liberty in wrong-doing.
It chains and fetters its victims
as surely as effect and cause.

mentally or socially
a Bible reading people.

 the ground-work of human freedom.
~ Horace Greeley

He that winneth souls is wise.
~ Proverbs 11: 30
