Childhood Memories

And even if you were in some prison, the walls of which let none of the sounds of the world come to your senses - would you not then still have your childhood, that precious, kingly possession, that treasure-house of memories?

Abundant Life

The abundant life does not come to those who have had a lot of obstacles removed from their path by others. It develops from within and is rooted in strong mental and moral fiber.

It's not what they take away from you that counts.
It's what you do with what you have left.
Never give up and never give in.

Zest in Living

Nothing else matters much -- not wealth, nor learning, nor even health -- without this gift: the spiritual capacity to keep zest in living. This is the creed of creeds, the final deposit and distillation of all important faiths: that you should be able to believe in life.

True to Your Vision

Cherish your visions. Cherish your ideals. Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment, of these, if you but remain true to them your world will at last be built.

- James Allen

Another Kind of Poverty

We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.

We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.

People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in
their true beauty is revealed
only if there is light from within.

none is greater or better than friendship.

Failure - A Step Toward Success

Remind thyself, in the darkest moments, that every failure is only a step toward success, every detection of what is false directs you toward what is true, every trial exhausts some tempting form of error, and every adversity will only hide, for a time, your path to peace and fulfillment.

- Og Mandino

Adversity is like a strong wind. I don't mean just that it holds us back from places we might otherwise go. It also tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that afterward we see ourselves as we really are, and not merely as we might like to be.

- Arthur Golden

Impact of Our Choices

Spirit is the Life, Mind is the Builder, and the Physical is the Result.
In other words, spirit is the source of all life.
The mind focuses that energy into creative (positive)
or destructive (negative) avenues of expression.
The impact of our choices will eventually find expression in the physical,
affecting ourselves and our relationships with one another.

- Edgar Cayce

There is a place that you are to fill that no one else can fill -
something you are to do that no one else can do.
