Hardships

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

Big and Precious

Happiness always looks small while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is.

Gratitude

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Good Character

Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are to some extent a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece by thought, choice, courage and determination.

It Will Be Over

Having the worst day of your life, don’t worry, it will be over in about 24 hours’ time

Happiness in Life

Happiness in life is not measured by the things we achieve, the places we go, or the route that we take to get there. Happiness in life is measured by the people that we share all of our experiences with.

Go By Motives

God made man to go by motives, and he will not go without them, any more than a boat without steam or a balloon without gas.

Chop A Tree

Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the ax.

What is Best

Freedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose – and commit myself to – what is best for me.
