Don’t say you miss me, when you don’t even try to talk to me.

Beautiful things happen .. when you distance yourself from negativity.

 

My praises are for God alone.

 

And we urge you brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.

 

Today is the first day of anything you want.

 

Good things take time.

 

What do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?

 

Prayer will not change God .. but it will change the one who prays.

 

Running away from your problems is a race you'll never win.

 

Never mind what you hear .. words and ideas can change the world.

 

The bad news is that time flies. The good news is that you are the pilot.

Live, Laugh, love. If that doesn’t work, load, aim, and fire.

 

A lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right and evil doesn’t become good, just because it’s accepted by a majority.

 

When deeds speak .. words are unnecessary.

 

Hope is a walking dream.

 

Be willing to eat the crow of correction just as readily as you devour the cake of congratulations.

 

Whether you choose misery or motivation .. it is still your choice.

 

They told me I could not. That is why I did.

 

Lord, empty me of me, so I can be filled with you.

 

Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance.

 

Look at the clock ... take note of how it still works.

 

The only person who knows what is best for you, is you.

 

Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.

 

You won't make yourself look great by showing how small someone else may be.

 

You never really know where the next miracle is going to come from.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope and look forward to tomorrow.

Your thoughts are the architects of your destiny.

 

There is always room at the top.

 

You moment you start paying attention, everything is your teacher.

 

Nothing is permanent .. not even your troubles.

 

No response is also a response. And it’s a powerful one.

 

Wisdom is the ability to walk away.

 

Whatever makes you mad, leave it. Whatever makes you smile, keep it.

 

You will encounter many defeats .. do not be defeated.

 

If you kick me when I am down, you better pray I don’t get up.

 

Life is is a balance between holding on and letting go.

 

Conquer your bad habits or they will conquer you.

 

Stop telling people more than they need to know.
