Favorite Quotes

With the recent Facebook updates, I had a fear that my collection of "Favorite Quotes" might be lost, so...I decided to write this blog post. It is quite different from my usual post, but it's my blog I can do what I want ;)

These are my favorite quotes...they really explain an awful lot about me.
  • "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: 'It Goes On.'" - Robert Frost 
  • "Get busy living, or get busy dying." - Shawshank Redemption  
  • "If you don't do it this year, you will be one year older when you do." - Warren Miller 
  • "It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time." - Steve Jobs 
  • "The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.” - James Oppenheim 
  • “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon 
  • "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." - Yogi Berra 
  • "You have to take it as it happens, but you should try to make it happen the way you want to take it." - German Proverb (I think this was my senior quote...I'm a dork)
  • "The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being either proven right or pleasantly surprised." - George F. Will 
  • “If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.” - Albert Einstein 
  • "There are two things that are more difficult than making an after-dinner speech: climbing a wall which is leaning toward you and kissing a girl who is leaning away from you." - Winston Churchill
  • "Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny." - Tom Krause 
  • "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." - 1 Timothy 4:12
  • “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’  These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today." - Matthew 6:25-34
  • "For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ" - 2 Peter 1:5-8
