Quotation Saturday

RESOLVE

"People do not lack strength; they lack will." 
-Victor Hugo

"He who is firm in will molds the world to himself." 
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing." 
-Abraham Lincoln

"Obstacles cannot crush me. Every obstacle yields to stern resolve. He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind." -Leonardo da Vinci


HUMOR

"Gentlemen, why don't you laugh? With the fearful strain that is upon me night and day, if I did not laugh, I should die." -Abraham Lincoln

"Wit penetrates; humor envelopes. Wit is a function of verbal intelligence; humor is imagination operating on good nature." 
-Peggy Noonan


"Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment." 
-Grenville Kleiser


DREAMS

Sometimes my dreams are so deep that I dream that I'm dreaming.
-Ray Charles

Never surrender your dream to noisy negatives.
-Author unknown

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. 
-Edgar Allan Poe

FAITH
 
And so faith is closing your eyes and following the breath of your soul down to the bottom of life, where existence and nonexistence have merged into irrelevance. All that matters is the little part you play in the vast drama. 
-Real Live Preacher
 
Desire, ask, believe, receive. 
-Stella Terrill Mann
 
Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles. 
- Confucius
