I think that is a better thing than thanksgiving: thanks-living. How is this to be done? By a general cheerfulness of manner, by an obedience to the command of Him by whose mercy we live, by a perpetual, constant delighting of ourselves in the Lord, and by a submission of our desires to His will.
Love is a better teacher than duty.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
George Bernard Shaw
Christianity is a lifestyle. And being a Christian is more than a label.
A gun is no more dangerous than a cricket bat in the hands of a madman.
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organizations do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
Keeping the Sabbath day holy is much more than just physical rest. It involves spiritual renewal and worship.
James E. Faust
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
Life is more than sunglasses and hit movies. Reality - that's the main event.
It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion, than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace.
I firmly believe that respect is a lot more important, and a lot greater, than popularity.
I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.
Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.
Nothing is more sad than the death of an illusion.
People who treat other people as less than human must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them, poisoned.
James A. Baldwin
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
No better way is there to learn to love Nature than to understand Art. It dignifies every flower of the field. And, the boy who sees the thing of beauty which a bird on the wing becomes when transferred to wood or canvas will probably not throw the customary stone.
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
Stereotypes lose their power when the world is found to be more complex than the stereotype would suggest. When we learn that individuals do not fit the group stereotype, then it begins to fall apart.
The only thing worse than a liar is a liar that's also a hypocrite!
There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.
Getting married, for me, was the best thing I ever did. I was suddenly beset with an immense sense of release, that we have something more important than our separate selves, and that is the marriage. There's immense happiness that can come from working towards that.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
