Sunday Word - Things people Say

Lately, I have this renewed love for quotes from famous people. I like the way someone can sum up a thought process up in just a few words. Here are some new (to me) ones that I found recently that I thought were great.

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on." - Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

"The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work." - Emile Zola (1840-1902)

"I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart."
- e e cummings (1894-1962)

"I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have."
- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

"In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
- Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)

"Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right."
- Henry Ford (1863-1947)

"Whenever I climb I am followed by a dog called 'Ego'."
- Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)

"If you are going through hell, keep going."
- Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

"When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world."
- George Washington Carver (1864-1943)

"Women leaders offer a perspective, a voice, an entire world of experience that is essential for both men and women in the congregation to experience."
- Nancy Beach

My all time favorite is...

"There is nothing neither good nor bad. Thinking makes it so. "
-Wm. Shakespeare

I love Shakespeare, I have that quote written down in one of my journals, it is so very true.

These are great! I don't have any profound ones.... but I stick to "It is what it is." Basically, I can't change what has happened, I can only move forward. Great post!

from my Esther bible study:
I believe in the sun,even when it is not shining.
I believe in love,even when I do not feel it.
I believe in God,even when He is silent.
"and who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?" Esther 4:14
