Feed your faith and your tears will starve to death. Faith can move mountains, but don’t be surprised if God hands you a shovel.
You find hope the same way you find happiness. You give it someone else and borrow a little of it back. Hope is some extraordinary spiritual grace that God gives us to control our fears, not to oust them.
When you are unwell, you must cough, sneeze and ache prayer. Pray on the shadowy hillside of hardship and on the sunny side of happiness.
We have two kinds of morality side by side: one which we preach but do not practice and another which we practice but seldom preach. Saying is one thing, doing another. We must conisder the sermon and the preacher distinctly and apart.
Life without faith in something is too narrow a space to live. Feed your faith and your fears will starge to death.
Lord, where we are wrong, make us willing to change; where we are right, make us easy to live with. Wash out your ego once in a while, as cleanliness is next to godliness not just in body but in humility as well.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree. Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.
The wings of angels are hope and faith. While we are sleeping, angels have conversations with our souls. The magnitude of life is overwhelming. Anges are here to help us take it peace by peace.
We hope with every breath. We love with every smile. Let Hope be your pulse, Faith in every heartbeat and Joy with every breath.. (Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!)
I don’t want to talk about [our Lord’s] divinity. I’d rather talk about his humanity. how we lived his life here on earth – his kindness, his tolerance. Listen, here’s what I think. We can’t go around measuring our goodness by what we don’t do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we’ve got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include.
I still believe in some faraway place where it’s all okay. I believe in faith and hope, although as the years go by, I find myself putting a little less faith in hope and a little more hope in faith. Hope never abandons you, you abandon it.
Every man is his own ancestor, and every man his own heir. He devises his own future, and he inherits his own past. Every day ask yourself, “What would I do today if I were a better person?”
It is with words as with sunbeams. The more they are condensed, the deeper than burn. Brevity is the soul of lingerie.
I find that a great part of the information I have was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way. Curiosity is little more than another name for hope.
Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours. The wisest one-word sentence: Breathe.
Faith, indeed, has up to the present not been able to move real mountains…. But it can put mountains where there are none. Faith can move mountains, but don;t be surprised if God hands you a shovel.
There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic to powerful as expectation of something tomorrow. Hope is the anchor of our souls. I know of no one who is not in need of hope – young or old, strong or weak, rich or poor.
The joyful news is that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice. Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply in terms of things but in terms of ideals.
If we could all hear one another’s prayers, God might be releived of some of his burdens. In about the same degree as you are helpful, you will be happy. Help one another, there’s no time like the present and no present like the time.
