Prov. 8:7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.


“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
~ E.B. White

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
~ Apple Inc.

“If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.”
~ Maya Angelou

“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.”
~ Bob Marley

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
~ Leo Tolstoy


“Does giving your piece of mind, bring a peace of mind? Or is it better to be silent and let the war inside subside?”
~ Anthony Liccione

“When you aren't satisfied with what has already been done, make something better. That is the greatest responsibility and the true freedom of creativity. The freedom is in that it doesn't need to complain.”
~ Criss Jami

“First and last step toward happiness: No demands and No complains.”
~ Vijay Dhameliya

“In complaining, people seek out others with equal complaints. Together they unite on THEIR truth and not THEE TRUTH. Makes for a darkened life.”
~ Joni


“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi

“Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”
~ Ernest Hemingway

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”
~ Mother Teresa


“Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them.”
~ Karen Marie Moning

“Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not. ”
~ C.G. Jung

What people value in their books—and thus what they count as literature—really tells you more about them than it does about the book.”
~ Brent Weeks

“The ideals which have always shone before me and filled me with joy are goodness, beauty, and truth.”
~ Albert Einstein


“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.”

“I've started to look at life differently. When you're thanking God for every little you - every meal, every time you wake up, every time you take a sip of water - you can't help but be more thankful for life itself, for the unlikely and miraculous fact that you exist at all.”
~ A.J. Jacobs

“Be thankful for what you have. Your life, no matter how bad you think it is, is someone else's fairy tale.”
~ Wale Ayeni

“I am thankful when I am hungry because then I know that when I eat, the food will taste better. Life has taught me that my true contentment rests in hope, and the pleasure itself is secondary. It is self-awareness, not happiness, that maintains peace.”
~ Criss Jami
