A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.
The man who cannot believe in himself cannot believe in anything else. The basis of all integrity and character is whatever faith we have in our own integrity.

I'm not trying to prove anybody wrong, I'm just trying to prove something to myself.
It is easy to fly into a passion... anybody can do that, but to be angry with the right person to the right extent and at the right time and in the right way that is not easy.
There is only one way... to get anybody to do anything. And that is by making the other person want to do it.
I never could tell a lie that anybody would doubt, nor a truth that anybody would believe.
It's too bad I'm not as wonderful a person as people say I am, because the world could use a few people like that.

I've always had confidence. It came because I have lots of initiative. I wanted to make something of myself.
It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before... to test your limits... to break through barriers. And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again -- this is the brave and happy life.
I have learned through bitter experience the one supreme lesson to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmitted into energy, even so our anger controlled can be transmitted into a power that can move the world.
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.
Women, despite the fact that nine out of ten of them go through life with a death-bed air either of snatching-the-last-moment or with martyr-resignation, do not die tomorrow -- or the next day. They have to live on to any one of many bitter ends.
If your cup seems too bitter, if your burden seems to heavy, be sure that it is the wounded hand that is holding the cup, and that it is me who carried the cross that is carrying the burden.
Family quarrels are bitter things. They don't go according to any rules. They're not like aches or wounds; they're more like splits in the skin that won't heal because there's not enough material.
When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.
It is an equal failing to trust everybody, and to trust nobody.
I can have peace of mind only when I forgive rather than judge.
Don't be afraid to fail. Don't waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go on to the next challenge. It's OK to fail. If you're not failing, you're not growing.
It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.
I believe that life is a journey, often difficult and sometimes incredibly cruel, but we are well equipped for it if only we tap into our talents and gifts and allow them to blossom.
We live in the present, we dream of the future and we learn eternal truths from the past.
The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.
A beautiful woman should break her mirror early.
The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present.
Do not judge, and you will never be mistaken.
The person is a poor judge who by an action can be disgraced more in failing than they can be honored in succeeding.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Judge a person by their questions, rather than their answers.
The judge is found guilty when a criminal is acquitted.
A judge is a law student who grades his own papers.
Mistakes are painful when they happen, but years later a collection of mistakes is what is called experience.

All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes.
Don't be afraid to make a mistake. But make sure you don't make the same mistake twice.

The greatest joy of life is to love and be loved.
A man who has committed a mistake and doesn't correct it is committing another mistake.

In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
It's what you do, unthinking, that makes the quick tear start; The tear may be forgotten -- but the hurt stays in the heart.
Never write anything that does not give you great pleasure. Emotion is easily transferred from the writer to the reader.
The family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself.
A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them. It is a wrong to his family. Children learn to read by being in the presence of books. The love of knowledge comes with reading and grows upon it. And the love of knowledge, in a young mind, is almost always a warrant against the inferior excitement of passions and vices.
We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
The best emotions to write out of are anger and fear or dread. The least energizing emotion to write out of is admiration. It is very difficult to write out of because the basic feeling that goes with admiration is a passive contemplative mood.

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I cannot forgive.
The past does not equal the future.
Forgiveness is the key to happiness.

I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love.
