Quotation Saturday


The important thing is to strive towards a goal which is not immediately visible. That goal is not the concern of the mind, but of the spirit. 
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
One half of knowing what you want is knowing what you must give up before you get it. ~Sidney Howard

~Doug Larson

The road leading to a goal does not separate you from the destination; it is essentially a part of it. 
~Charles DeLint


You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. ~Kahlil Gibran
But it is a cold, lifeless business when you go to the shops to buy something, which does not represent your life and talent, but a goldsmith's. 
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Gifts,"
If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give. 
~George MacDonald
The manner of giving is worth more than the gift. 
~Pierre Corneille

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?" ~William A. Ward

The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving. ~H.U. Westermayer

There is no such thing as gratitude unexpressed. If it is unexpressed, it is plain, old-fashioned ingratitude. 
~Robert Brault
As each day comes to us refreshed and anew, so does my gratitude renew itself daily. The breaking of the sun over the horizon is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world. ~Terri Guillemets

Any fool can count the seeds in an apple. Only God can count all the apples in one seed. ~Robert H. Schuller
God understands our prayers even when we can't find the words to say them. 
~Author Unknown
If God had wanted to be a big secret, He would not have created babbling brooks and whispering pines. 
~Robert Brault
A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell. 
~C.S. Lewis
