Quote of the Day
Let grace and goodness be the principal loadstone of thy affections. For love which hath ends, will have an end; whereas that which is founded on true virtue, will always continue.
Tell me thy company, and I'll tell thee what thou art.
Miguel de Cervantes
To God be humble, to thy friend be kind, and with thy neighbors gladly lend and borrow; His chance tonight, it maybe thine tomorrow.
Honor thy error as a hidden intention.
Let age, not envy, draw wrinkles on thy cheeks.
Be assured those will be thy worst enemies, not to whom thou hast done evil, but who have done evil to thee. And those will be thy best friends, not to whom thou hast done good, but who have done good to thee.
Tomorrow do thy worst, I have lived today.
I hate organized religion. I think you have to love thy neighbor as thyself. I think you have to pick your own God and be true to him. I always say 'him' rather than 'her.' Maybe it's because of my generation, but I don't like the idea of a female God. I see God as a benevolent male.
Fear not that thy life shall come to an end, but rather that it shall never have a beginning.
John Henry Newman
This, I thought, is what is meant by 'thy will be done' in the Lord's Prayer, which I had prayed time and again without thinking about it. It means that your will and God's will may not be the same. It means there's a good possibility that you won't get what you pray for. It means that in spite of your prayers you are going to suffer.
To God, thy country, and thy friend be true.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, for there are plenty of others.
Put off thy cares with thy clothes; so shall thy rest strengthen thy labor, and so thy labor sweeten thy rest.
Essentially, pride is a 'my will' rather than 'thy will' approach to life.
Ezra Taft Benson
What name to call thee by, O virgin fair, I know not, for thy looks are not of earth And more than mortal seems thy countenances.
At the beginning of the cask and the end take thy fill but be saving in the middle; for at the bottom the savings comes too late.
Fear nothing but what thy industry may prevent; be confident of nothing but what fortune cannot defeat; it is no less folly to fear what is impossible to be avoided than to be secure when there is a possibility to be deprived.
He that is thy friend indeed, he will help thee in thy need: if thou sorrow, he will weep; if you wake, he cannot sleep; thus of every grief in heart he with thee doth bear a part.
Seek not, my soul, the life of the immortals; but enjoy to the full the resources that are within thy reach.
Make hunger thy sauce, as a medicine for health.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou.
Indulge not thyself in the passion of anger; it is whetting a sword to wound thine own breast, or murder thy friend.
I was going through a little bit of turbulence in my career. And so, it's funny how turbulence itself will make you hold onto something for security. And so the only thing I knew is trust in the Lord and lean not unto your own heart, in all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy path.
When ambitious desires arise in thy heart, recall the days of extremity thou have passed through. Forbearance is the root of all quietness and assurance forever.
There's not a wind but whispers of thy name; And not a flow'r that grows beneath the moon, But in its hues and fragrance tells a tale Of thee, my love.
Blessed be God that Thou hast filled the soul of Thy servant with joy and peace in believing.
Philosophically, what I have learned is to thy own self be true. That is the biggest lesson of all. Relax; music is fun. To many people take it to seriously because of the money involved.
Great God of the Ants, thou hast granted victory to thy servants. I appoint thee honorary Colonel.
How blunt are all the arrows of thy quiver in comparison with those of guilt.
Burn not thy fingers to snuff another man's candle.
