"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Pierce Rogers (September 12, 1931 – November 15, 2005) of Love Worth Finding Ministries, Pastor Emeritus of Bellevue Baptist Church.
"Let me ask you, once you have finished repaying the bank loan that you took for purchasing your house, do you still have to send in the monthly payments? Of course not!"
Joseph Prince on Jesus having paid our debt of sin
"...it's NOT who you are underneath, it's what you DO that defines you."
From from Batman Begins
"When people SHOW YOU who they are, BELIEVE them." - Maya Angelou
(Really pay attention to what this says - associate it with above quote from Batman Begins)
"Jesus told me to tell you, that He loves you"
-Katherine Nevil, my daughter
You’ve gotta’ dance like nobody’s watching,
Sing like nobody’s listening,
Love like you’ve never been hurt.

In this world it is not what we take up, but what we give up, that makes us rich.
(Fortune inside cookie 12/25/2008 - reminding me that I'm not first - I am second)
"Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back -- in many ways it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you."
You can always learn something from others, even those that don't have the same views as you do if you open your mind.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me".
