Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts -Charles Dickens Simplicity of character is no hindrance to the subtlety of intellect. -John Morley To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides. -David Viscott The purposes of a man's heart are deep waters but a man of understanding draws them out. Proverbs 20:5 A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other. -Charles Dickens Are you fit company for the person you wish to become? to die will be an awfully great adventure. -Peter Pan Forgiveness is the frangrance that the violet sheds on the heal that has crushed it. -Mark Twain Being in charge is like being a lady, if you have to tell people you are, you arnt. she is a friend of my mind. she gathers me man. The pieces I am, she gathers them back to me in all the right order. - Beloved (book) When do the dead die? when they are forgotten. When does a city disappear? When it no longer exists in the memory of those who lived there. And when does love cease? When one begins to love anew. Women may fall when there is no strength left in men. -William Shakespeare If you dont stand for something you will fall for anything. -Maya Angelou With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity. -Keshavan Nair Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. -Ambrose Redmoon As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fires of love with words. -William Shakespeare Delayed gratification is a sign of maturity. We gain the strength of the temptation we resist. -Ralph Waldo Emerson Worry does not empty tomarrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength. -Corrie ten boom For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. -Audrey Hepburn I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it. -Audrey Hepburn Silence is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life. - Immanuel Kent There are only four questions of value in life. What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for? and what is worth dying for? the answer to each is the same: only love. - Don Juan DeMarco True love always makes a man better, no matter what woman inspires it. -Alexander Dumas Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. aim at earth and you get neither. -C.S Lewis Can people ask questions which God finds unanswerable? Quite easily, I should think. All nonsense questions are unanswerable. -C.S Lewis An explanation of a cause is not a justification by reason. - C.S Lewis Life is a hypocrite if you cant live the way it moves you. Love God and do as you please. - Saint Augustine Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss...." He turned to me. "But every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare." -Wendelin Van Draanen "are the gods not just?" "oh no, child. What would become of us if they were?" -Till We Have Faces To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket — safe, dark, motionless, airless — it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside of Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell. -The Four Loves The imagined beings have their insides on the outside; they are visible souls. And man as a whole, Man pitted against the universe, have we seen him at all till we see that he is like a hero in a fairy tale? The Value of myth is that it takes all the things you know and restores to them the rich significance which has been hidden by the veil of familiarity. C.S Lewis The most dangerous thing you can do is to take any one impulse of your own nature and set it up as the thing you ought to follow at all costs. There's not one of them which won't make us into devils if we set it up as an absolute guide. You might think love of humanity in general was safe, but it isn't. If you leave out justice you'll find yourself breaking agreements and faking evidence in trials "for the sake of humanity" and become in the end a cruel and treacherous man. -Mere Christianity "Milton was right…" The choice of every lost soul can be expressed in the words "Better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven." There is always something they insist on keeping even at the price of misery…" -The Great Divorce "And I say also this. I do not think the forest would be so bright, nor the water so warm, nor love so sweet, if there were no danger in the lakes." -Out of The Silent Planet "I do not argue with obstinate men, I act in spite of them." -Agatha Christie "There is no one as kind as you, no one who gave me reasons I understood for doing what at first seems so hard" Edith Wharton- age of innocence Absence diminishes mediocre passions and increases great ones, as the wind extinguishes candles and fans fires. Francois de La Rochefoucauld Faith makes all things possible... love makes all things easy. Dwight L. Moody I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love. Mother Teresa If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail. Abraham Maslow In seeking wisdom thou art wise; in imagining that thou hast attained it - thou art a fool. Lord Chesterfield Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. Henry Ford
