the wise have said






I have learned, the hard way in some cases, that I could have learned from those who have walked before me.  Though experience is an excellent teacher, sometimes we can learn from those who have gone before us and put that into practice. True wisdom must be by someone who understands us better than we understand ourselves.  True wisdom comes from our Creator!

Happy is the man who finds wisdom  Proverbs 3:13














Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.  

        Winston Churchill

The truth that makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear.   
        Herbert Agar

The really great man is the one who makes every man feel great. 
        G.K. Chesterton  

Truth without love is brutality, and love without truth is hypocrisy. 
        Warren Wiersbe

The Gospel that represents Jesus Christ, not as a system of truth to be received, into the mind, as I should receive a system of philosophy, or astronomy, but it represents Him as a real, living, mighty Savior, able to save me now.
Catherine Booth

The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.
Albert Schweitzer

If I am afraid to speak the truth lest I lose affection, or lest the one concerned should say, "You do not understand", or because I fear to lose my reputation for kindness; if I put my own good name before the other's highest good, then I know nothing of Calvary love. 
Amy Carmichael

You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him.  
A.W. Tozer  

Nine-tenths of the difficulties are overcome when our hearts are ready to do the Lord's will, whatever it may be.  When one is truly in this state, it is usually but a little way to the knowledge of what His will is.  
George Muller  

No doctrine in the whole Word of God has more excited the hatred of mankind than the truth of the absolute sovereignty of God. The fact that "the Lord reigns" is indisputable, and it is this fact that arouses the utmost opposition in the unrenewed human heart. 
Charles Spurgeon

The first thing I saw about Jesus was that He preached only what He had already practiced.  He did first and then taught (Acts1:1). His preaching always had a practical application.   
Zac Poonen

I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love. 
Mother Teresa

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.  
Martin Luther King, Jr.

It matters enormously if I alienate anyone from the truth.  
C.S. Lewis

(On compassion) You see, my brethren, my heart is full; I could almost say it is too big to speak, and yet too big to be silent, without dropping a word to you.   
George Whitefield  

Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go to move forward.    
C.S. Lewis

How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, His precepts!  
Benjamin Franklin

Resolution One:  I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.  
Jonathan Edwards

I want to take Your Word and shine it all around.  But first help me just to live it Lord.  And when I'm doing well, help me to never seek a crown, for my reward is giving glory to You.
