Life Wisdom

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.

–Henry Van Dyke

Author, educator, and clergyman

Life Wisdom

If you want to be miserable, then think about yourself first…what you want, what people are saying about you, what you ought to have done for you, how down you feel, how good you feel.  Just focus on yourself.  Feeling good yet?  If you are, then something is wrong.  Selfishness and happiness just don’t go hand in hand.  If you are thinking it is better to receive than to give, you’ll never be happy.  You’ll never experience the blessing of giving.

Hold out your hand and make a fist for at least one minute.  Now, relax.  Which feels better?  Now imagine if your spirit is tight and how that will quench work in your life.

–Adrian Rogers

 

Think About It:  Unhappiness comes from mirrors.  Happiness comes from windows.

American Wisdom

Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency;  but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.

Benjamin Franklin,

Letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy,

November 13, 1789

American Wisdom

It is very imprudent to deprive America of any of her privileges.  If her commerce and friendship are of any importance to you, they are to be had on no other terms than leaving her in the full enjoyment of her rights.

Benjamin Franklin, Political Observations
