Citizens in happy countries have higher suicide rates than citizens of unhappy countries, because they look at the smiling faces around them and the contrast is too great. – Malcolm Gladwell
“The most significant visions are not cast by great orators from a stage. They are cast at the bedsides of our children. The greatest visioncasting opportunities happen between the hours of 7:30 and 9:30 PM Monday through Sunday. In these closing hours of the day we have a unique opportunity to plant the seeds of what could be and what should be. Take every opportunity you get.” ― Andy Stanley
“It is when our hearts are stirred that we become most aware of what they contain.”
– Andy Stanley
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” – Sir Edmund Hillary, after climbing Mt. Everest (bet he never did a #BlackFriday )
There’s nothing written in the Bible that says if you believe in me, you ain’t going to have no troubles. ~ Ray Charles
I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I founded empires but on what did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His Empire upon love; and at this hour millions of people would die for Him. Everything in Christ astonishes me. His spirit overawes me, and His will confounds me … I search in vain in history to find the similar to Jesus Christ, or anything that can approach the gospel. ~ Napoleon
