Hurt's a reason to change, but all the hurt in the world don't change facts.

The difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is how you use them
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully.
Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them.
There is an election going on all the time... the Lord votes for you and Satan votes against you, and you must cast the deciding vote.
Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?
Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.
Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.
Whatever we are waiting for -- peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance -- it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
If God would have wanted us to live in a permissive society He would have given us Ten Suggestions and not Ten Commandments.
Our favorite attitude should be gratitude
Every choice you make has an end result.
Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.
Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.
God left the world unfinished for man to work his skill upon. He left the electricity still in the cloud, the oil still in the earth. How often we look upon God as our last and feeblest resource! We go to Him because we have nowhere else to go. And then we learn that the storms of life have driven us, not upon the rocks, but into the desired haven.
Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune.
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.
Staying present means experiencing each moment with a purpose, and going forth into the world expecting every moment to have something important to offer, no matter how trivial the situation may seem.
Wounds Heal. Scars fade. Glory is forever.
No matter how rough our day was today, or yesterday may have been, every morning is a new beginning, a new chance for you to rewrite the story of your life.
Character is that which reveals moral purpose, exposing the class of things a man chooses or avoids.
Every human being is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no others are, and to do what no other can do.
You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips.
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
When God measures man, He puts the tape around his heart -- not his head.
When God plan to do something great, He always starts with difficulties and when He plan to do something wonderful He starts with impossibility.
Friendship is when people know all your mistakes, and your past, and help you grow into the person you are destined to be
I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control and a little hard to handle, but if you can't handle me at my worst, you sure the hell don't deserve me at my best.
Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.
It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper; so cry away.
Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.
A mirror reflects a man's face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses. [Proverbs 27:19]
To live without Hope is to Cease to live.
Of all ills that one endures, hope is a cheap and universal cure.
It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
To get what you want, STOP doing what isn't working.
Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.
Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself. Give yourself peace of mind. You deserve to be happy. You deserve delight.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
Plant the seed of desire in your mind and it forms a nucleus with power to attract to itself everything needed for its fulfillment.
He who is wrapped up in himself makes a mighty small package.
Be careful what you set your heart upon -- for it will surely be yours.
Nothing stops the man who desires to achieve. Every obstacle is simply a course to develop his achievement muscle. It's a strengthening of his powers of accomplishment.
Know what you want. Become your real self.
The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but rather what he longs to attain.
A burning desire is the greatest motivator of every human action. The desire for success implants success consciousness which, in turn, creates a vigorous and ever-increasing habit of success.
First deserve then desire.
It is impossible to go through life without trust: that is to be imprisoned in the worst cell of all, oneself.
Defeat may test you; it need not stop you. If at first you don't succeed, try another way. For every obstacle there is a solution. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. The greatest mistake is giving up.
Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal. Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs.
When looking for faults use a mirror, not a telescope
We must give more in order to get more, It is the generous giving of ourselves that produce the generous harvest.
To whom much is given is much required. [Luke 12:48]
God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with.
What loneliness is more lonely than distrust?
No one should form an acquaintance with one who has an evil character. A piece of coal, if it is hot burns, and if it's cold, blackens the hands.
You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going? What do they have me thinking? And most important, what do they have me becoming? Then ask yourself the big question: Is that okay? Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.
Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.
When you're in the right, you can afford to keep your temper. When in the wrong, you can't afford to lose it.
To be right with God has often meant to be in trouble with men.
All of the troubles that some people have in life is that which they married into.
If you have a lemon, make lemonade.
Truth will rise above falsehood as oil above water.
We swallow greedily any lie that flatters us, but we sip only little by little at a truth we find bitter.
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
The darkest day, If you live till tomorrow will have past away.
There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.
Run if you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up.
Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish, which trumps Did Not Start.
Losers look at what they are going through. Winners look where they are going to.
The obstacles you face are... mental barriers which can be broken by adopting a more positive approach.
Little minds have little worries, big minds have no time for worries.
The weak are the most treacherous of us all. They come to the strong and drain them. They are bottomless. They are insatiable. They are always parched and always bitter. They are everyone's concern and like vampires they suck our life's blood.
Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten.
What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.
Denying your potential is emotionally unhealthy, but being proud of own potential leads to destruction. Where's the balance point then? Be revealed of who Christ is, of who you are in Christ, and of how your oneness with Christ leads you to the best possible version of yourself.
There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
How else but through a broken heart may Lord Christ enter in?
Beware of assumptions! Whatever you assume to be possible -- or impossible will have a tendency to become real for you.
You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.
Focus more on your desire than on your doubt, and the dream will take care of itself. You may be surprised at how easily this happens. Your doubts are not as powerful as your desires, unless you make them so.
People should know what you stand for. They should also know what you won't stand for.
You are where you are today because you've chosen to be there.
And as for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. [Genesis 50:20]
How we think shows through in how we act. Attitudes are mirrors of the mind. They reflect thinking.
If your words are soft and sweet, they won't be as hard to swallow if you have to eat them.
Your expectations opens or closes the doors of your supply, If you expect grand things, and work honestly for them, they will come to you, your supply will correspond with your expectation.
When you are in the valley, keep your goal firmly in view and you will get the renewed energy to continue the climb.
To change and change for the better are two different things
Eating words has never given me indigestion.
Words alike flames, they burn. leaving nothing, not even blood, but ashes, which are never identified, never retraceable and ridiculously impossible to be put back together again.
You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find you've collected a lot of empty yesterdays.
Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.
The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.
Accept everything about yourself -- I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end -- no apologies, no regrets.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
More powerful than the will to win is the courage to begin.
A blow with a word strikes deeper than a blow with a sword.
Keep your words sweet -- you may have to eat them. I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
A word once uttered can never be recalled.
Please God, make my words today sweet and tender, for tomorrow I may have to eat them.
One of the secrets of getting more done is to make a TO DO List every day, keep it visible, and use it as a guide to action as you go through the day.
We should be lenient in our judgment, because often the mistakes of others would have been ours had we had the opportunity to make them.
Foolish men imagine that because judgment for an evil thing is delayed, there is no justice; but only accident here below. Judgment for an evil thing is many times delayed some day or two, some century or two, but it is sure as life, it is sure as death.
Even God doesn't plan to judge a man till the end of his days, why should you and I?
i don't miss you.. i miss who i thought you were.
We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.
A weak mind is like a microscope, which magnifies trifling things, but cannot receive great ones.
If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, just what does an empty desk mean?
Before I judge anything, first I ask, is it true about myself?
It is hard to show you the bigger picture when you don't have the right frame of mind.
Seek always for the answer within. Be not influenced by those around you, by their thoughts or their words
A person's worth in this world is estimated according to the value they put on themselves.
He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.
It is better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind. Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented and happy attitudes and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful.
Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of the past, and is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions.
Peace of mind comes from not wanting to change others.
A mind at peace, a mind centered and not focused on harming others, is stronger than any physical force in the universe.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
Some people say they haven't yet found themselves. But the self is not something one finds; it is something one creates.
A winner rebukes and forgives; a loser is too timid to rebuke and too petty to forgive
He that cannot forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass if he would ever reach heaven; for everyone has need to be forgiven.
Some people would rather lose the relationship than the argument.
All love that has not friendship for its base, is like a mansion built upon the sand.
Friendship is a precious gift. To give at Christmas time. A Cherished gift, a treasured gift that lasts through all time.
The gift of friendship... a willingness to listen... a pair of helping hands... a whisper from the heart. That someone cares and understands.
A friend walks in when everyone else walks out
God gives us our relatives -- thank God we can choose our friends.
When you face a crisis, you know who your true friends are.
Friendship Never explain -- your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe it anyway. A real friend never gets in your way, unless you happen to be on the way down. A friend is someone you can do nothing with and enjoy it. However much we guard ourselves against it, we tend to shape ourselves in the image others have of us. It is not so much the example of others we imitate, as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.
I can have peace of mind only when I forgive rather than judge.
When it is a question of God's almighty Spirit, never say, I can't.
God does not ask about our ability, but our availability.
There is nothing impossible to him who will try.
Impossible is a word only to be found in the dictionary of fools.
The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.
Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.
Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.
When you blame others, you give up your power to change.
If you don't change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news?
Those who say it can't be done are usually interrupted by others doing it.
To believe a thing is impossible is to make it so.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
