Quotation Saturday ~ Peace

Job 22: 21 “Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.”

CONTENT

“To be content with little is difficult; to be content with much, impossible.” 
― Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

“My Crown is in my heart, not on my head:
Not deck'd with Diamonds, and Indian stones:
Nor to be seen: my Crown is call'd Content,
A Crown it is, that seldom Kings enjoy.” 
― William Shakespeare, King Henry VI, Part 3

“Poor is the man who is not content with what he has.” 
― Rita Gonzalez (and too many to list have said this)

“Don't get caught in the trap of always "Needing" something. Needing something always projects your mind into the future as if you have it and is the opposite of gratitude. Be content in the present moment.” 
― Matthew Donnelly

GRATEFUL

“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -- just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.” 
― Laura Ingalls Wilder

“Ingratitude to God does not rely only on our refusal to give the verbal thanksgiving due to Him, but also resides in our inability to appreciate his gifts and potentials in us by leaving them untapped.” 
― Israelmore Ayivor

“I have been finding treasures in places I did not want to search. I have been hearing wisdom from tongues I did not want to listen. I have been finding beauty where I did not want to look. And I have learned so much from journeys I did not want to take. Forgive me, O Gracious One; for I have been closing my ears and eyes for too long. I have learned that miracles are only called miracles because they are often witnessed by only those who can see through all of life's illusions. I am ready to see what really exists on other side, what exists behind the blinds, and taste all the ugly fruit instead of all that looks right, plump and ripe.” 
― Suzy Kassem

“Gain strength. Suck up energy. Make a point of appreciating the fragrance of the flowers and the beauty of the sunset. It is like armor. When you take a moment to practice my message you can then be armed with an ability to be detached. One is meant to forgive, to forgive and be compassionate.”
 ~ Kuan Yin

SATISFIED

“Is God satisfied with you or could it be that God looks at you and fails to see a man, only a bunch of flesh Full of self, and missing out on the purpose for his or her creation? What does God see, think and feel when he looks at you?” 
― Sunday Adelaja

“He that has satisfied his thirst turns his back on the well.” 
― Baltasar Graci├ín

“You will never be satisfied until you are completely satisfied with God.”
― Jerry Kinard

“Live your lives in such a way that you would be sure you are productive, effective and satisfied on all levels.” 
― Sunday Adelaja

PEACE

“World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.” 
― Dalai Lama XIV

“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.” 
― Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

“You have peace," the old woman said, "when you make it with yourself.” 
― Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

“Grudges are for those who insist that they are owed something; forgiveness, however, is for those who are substantial enough to move on.” 
― Criss Jami

NEWNESS

“Change is like the skin peeling off of a snake. It is slow. It is sticky. And sometimes you have to rub against a hard place to pull yourself through it. But in the end, you realize that it was worth it all to get the new place and new person you have become.” 
― Stella Payton

“And in the evening
After the fire and the light
One thing is certain: Nothing can hold back the light
Time is relentless
And as the past disappears
We're on the verge of all things new” 
― Billy Joel, - River of Dreams

“How different every hour is from the one before!” 
― Marty Rubin
