10 of My Favorite Quotes

Today I decided to do a quotes post. I’m a words person so I definitely love reading quotes and even reflecting on them. It’s something about words that speak what you’ve been thinking or experiencing. Words are like color on dark and gloomy days. They have the power to do amazingly wonderfully creative things. Words can speak life and they can be the warmth from the cold. Here they are!

1) We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” – Maya Angelou

2) The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” – Helen Keller

3) God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.” – Reinhold Niebuhr

4) The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you.” – Unknown

5) ” Life is like a book with many chapters we call seasons. Some chapters tell the story of love, drama, comedy, mystery, loss, adversity, growth, disappointment, triumph, etc. Some chapters are dull and ordinary, others intense and exciting. The key to enduring, persevering and being hopeful is to never stop on a difficult page, to never quit on a book or a chapter that seems too long. Some chapters may be sweet but too short. Your words, thoughts, actions, non – action and choices are the pens that write the pages in your book. Have the courage and faith to keep turning the pages, believing better chapters lie ahead. God is the author and finisher of your life. Trust. Listen. Believe. Grow in God’s word. Activate your gifts and talents. Be creative. Be kind. Be patient. Be faithful. Be grateful. Be fruitful.” – Diamond Taylor

6) When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.” – Peter Marshall

7)  The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.” – Myles Munroe

8) You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” – Christopher Columbus

 9) When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” – Alexander Graham Bell

10) Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.” – Henry Van Dyke
