ALL MEN DREAM: BUT NOT EQUALLY. THOSE WHO DREAM BY NIGHT IN THE DUSTY RECESSES OF THEIR MINDS WAKE IN THE DAY TO FIND THAT IT WAS VANITY: BUT THE DREAMERS OF THE DAY ARE DANGEROUS MEN, FOR THEY MAY ACT THEIR DREAM WITH OPEN EYES TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE.
~ T.E. Lawrence
THE MORE WE LET GOD TAKE US OVER, THE MORE TRULY OURSELVES WE BECOME - BECAUSE HE MADE US. HE INVENTED ALL THE DIFFERENT PEOPLE THAT YOU AND I WERE INTENDED TO BE. IT IS WHEN I TURN TO CHRIST, WHEN I GIVE UP MYSELF TO HIS PERSONALITY, THAT I FIRST BEGIN TO HAVE A REAL PERSONALITY OF MY OWN.
~ C. S. Lewis
THE REASON WHY MANY ARE STILL TROUBLED, STILL SEEKING, STILL MAKING LITTLE FORWARD PROGRESS IS BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T YET COME TO THE END OF THEMSELVES. WE'RE STILL TRYING TO GIVE ORDERS, AND INTERFERING WITH GOD'S WORK WITHIN US.
~ A.W. Tozer
HISTORY HAS DEMONSTRATED THAT THE MOST NOTABLE WINNERS USUALLY ENCOUNTERED HEARTBREAKING OBSTACLES BEFORE THEY TRIUMPHED. THEY WON BECAUSE THEY REFUSED TO BECOME DISCOURAGED BY THEIR DEFEATS. ~ B.C. Forbes
IT IS THE HABITUAL THOUGHT THAT FRAMES ITSELF INTO OUR LIFE. IT AFFECTS US EVEN MORE THAN OUR INTIMATE SOCIAL RELATIONS DO. OUR CONFIDENTIAL FRIENDS HAVE NOT SO MUCH TO DO IN SHAPING OUR LIVES AS THE THOUGHTS WHICH WE HARBOR.
~ J.W. Teal
I ADMIRE MEN OF CHARACTER, AND I JUDGE CHARACTER NOT BY HOW MEN DEAL WITH THEIR SUPERIORS, BUT MOSTLY HOW THEY DEAL WITH THEIR SUBORDINATES, AND THAT, TO ME, IS WHERE YOU FIND OUT WHAT THE CHARACTER OF A MAN IS.
~ General H. Norman Schwarzkopf
It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
God has promised to give us wisdom, if we will ask. Wisdom is seeing life from God's point of view. Wisdom is the ability to make decisions the way God makes decisions. Think about this: God never makes a bad decision. He never makes a mistake. He says if we trust Him and listen to Him, He will guide us. But we must ask in faith.
~ Rick Warren
