Here are are 13 quotes I gleaned from various sources on a variety of topics, ranging from getting through life's trials, to prayer, to atheism, and of course, what group of quotes wouldn't be complete witout hearing from Yogi Berra and Jack Handey? Enjoy.
I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. --William Penn
Through the leaves of every trial there are chinks of light to shine through. Thorns do not prick you unless you lean against them, and not one touches without His knowledge. The words that hurt you, the letter which gave you pain, the cruel wound of your dearest friend, shortness of money–are all known to Him, who sympathizes as none else can and watches to see, if, through all, you will dare to trust Him wholly.–Mrs. Charles Cowman, Streams in the Desert
Wal-mart....do they make walls there?–Paris Hilton
Hardly any stance could be more completely beautiful, strong, or safe than that of putting your finger on a promise of God’s divine Word and then claiming it.–-F. B. Meyer
Our anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, but only empties today of its strength.-- Charles H Spurgeon
Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded.--Yogi Berra
(Longie but a goodie:)
Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.-- from Captain Corelli's Mandolin
Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.-–St. Augustine
You may never know that Jesus is all you need, until Jesus is all you have.--Corrie Ten Boom
A young man who wishes to remain a sound Atheist cannot be too careful of his reading.–C. S. Lewis
If there were no God, there would be no atheists. --G.K. Chesterton
Without God man has no reference point to define himself. 20th century philosophy manifests the chaos of man seeking to understand himself as a creature with dignity while having no reference point for that dignity. --R. C. Sproul
To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there is no music, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other–-Jack Handey
