Good Thoughts

These are all quotes from Pastor Tim's recent mailings, except for the C.S. Lewis one, which appealed to me in recent reading. Gave you a link to where I found it online ;-)

"Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he isn't, and a sense of humor to console him for what he is."

"The reason people blame things on the previous generations is that there's only one other choice."
- Doug Larson

"Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody else has thought."
-Albert von Szent-Gyorgyi

Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.
C. S. Lewis

"When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters - one represents danger, and the other represents opportunity."
- Saul David Alinsky

"It is only possible to live happily ever after on a day-to-day basis."
- Margaret Bonnano

"Mountains of gold would not seduce some men, yet flattery would break them down."
- Henry Ward Beecher

"Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow." - Anonymous

"God's eye is on the sparrow--and on the turkey, too!"

"A life with love will have some thorns, but a life without love will have no roses."
