Quote of the Day
Men would live exceedingly quiet if these two words, mine and thine, were taken away.
This above all; to thine own self be true.
Prayer is a privilege and the soul's sincere desire. We can move beyond routine and 'checklist' prayers and engage in meaningful prayer as we appropriately ask in faith and act, as we patiently persevere through the trial of our faith, and as we humbly acknowledge and accept 'not my will, but Thine, be done.'
David A. Bednar
To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.
Be still and cool in thine own mind and spirit.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
Lose not yourself in a far off time, seize the moment that is thine.
Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Indulge not thyself in the passion of anger; it is whetting a sword to wound thine own breast, or murder thy friend.
Drink to me only with thine eyes, And I will pledge with mine; Or leave a kiss but in the cup And I'll not look for wine.
Hear the words of prudence, give heed unto her counsels, and store them in thine heart; her maxims are universal, and all the virtues lean upon her; she is the guide and the mistress of human life.
To God be humble, to thy friend be kind, and with thy neighbors gladly lend and borrow; His chance tonight, it maybe thine tomorrow.
Put a bridle on thy tongue; set a guard before thy lips, lest the words of thine own mouth destroy thy peace... on much speaking cometh repentance, but in silence is safety.
Thine eyes are springs in whose serene And silent waters heaven is seen. Their lashes are the herbs that look On their young figures in the brook.
William C. Bryant
Absolve me, teach me, purify me, strengthen me: take me to Thyself, that I may be Thine and Thine only.
Joseph Barber Lightfoot
Ah, sweet Content, where doth thine harbour hold.
What is thine is mine, and all mine is thine.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Christ removed self as the force in His perfect life. It was, 'Not my will, but thine be done.'
Ezra Taft Benson
Admiration from my readers inspire me, and the only 'formula' I believe in towards making a good writer is: 'to thine own self be true!'
Do thou snatch treasures from my lips, and I'll take kingdoms back from thine.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Forget not, O Lord, that I am one of those whom Thou hast created, and with Thine own blood hast redeemed. I repent me of my sins: I will strive to amend my ways.
Oh, come, Divine Physician, and bind up every broken bone. Come with Thy sacred nard which Thou hast compounded of Thine own heart's blood, and lay it home to the wounded conscience and let it feel its power. Oh! Give peace to those whose conscience is like the troubled sea which cannot rest.
An animal takes freely anything that it wishes: it commits no sin and is not held responsible for its action because it knows no better. But as soon as the idea of 'mine' and 'thine' has been imprinted upon our consciousness, then also the responsibility comes.
John F. Kennedy
