Favorite quotes

Going back to the "my favorites" theme here.

Let me know some of your favorite quotes (or poems I guess some are quite long) too!

"The Holy Spirit will move them by first moving you. If you can rest without their being saved, they will rest too. But if you are filled with agony for them, if you cannot bear that they should be lost, you will soon find that they are uneasy too."
CH Spurgeon

"What a God!
Ponder the achievement of God.
He doesn't condone our sin,
nor does He compromise His standard.
He doesn't ignore our rebellion,
nor does He relax His demands.
Rather than dismiss our sin,
He assumes our sin and
incredibly sentences Himself.
God's holiness is honored
our sin is punished....
and we are redeemed.
God does what we cannot do
so we can be what we dare not dream:
(have no idea where I got this but I wrote in my Bible years ago)

"Living by grace inspires a growing consciousness that I am what I am in the sight of Jesus and nothing more. It is His approval that counts."
Brennan Manning

"Pray often, for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for satan."
John Bunyan

"The main concern of the devil is to keep the saints from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, he mocks our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray."
Samuel Chadwick

"I want to walk in strong confidence knowing I am not in control."
Kevin LJ (on the Third Day message boards)

"You can safely assume that you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do."
Anne Lamott

"A word to the wise ain't necessary - it's the stupid ones that need the advice. "
Bill Cosby

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."
Albert Einstein

"Stupidity is also a gift of God, but one mustn't misuse it"
Pope John Paul II

(sorry for all the "stupid" quotes....I think they are great)

Well that's all I can find in my dayplanner for now....might add more later....let me know yours!

I literally have journals full of quotes! But one that has always been prominent for me ever since working my first Chrysalis Journey is...

"We must be willing to let go of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us." ~Joseph Campbell

Oh, and I love the JPII quote. :)
