At the close of life the question will be not, how much you have got, but how much you have given; not how much you have won, but how much you have done; not how much you have saved, but how much you have sacrificed; how much you have loved and served, not how much you were honored || Nathan C. Schaeffer

To have failed is to have striven, to have striven is to have grown || Maltbie Davenport Babcock

A life without a purpose is a languid, drifting thing. Every day we ought to renew our purpose, saying to ourselves: This day let us make a sound beginning, for what we have hitherto done is nought || Thomas A` Kempis

I have told you of the Spaniard who always put on his spectacles when about to eat cherries, that they might look more tempting. In like manner, I make the most of my enjoyments, and pack my troubles in as small a compass as I can || Robert Southey

Now, believe me, God hides some ideal in every human soul || Robert Collyer

I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a prettier shell or a smoother pebble than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me || Isaac Newton

Let it be remembered that steadfast application to a fixed aim is the law of a well-spent life.

Life is made up of little things. It is very rarely that an occasion is offered for doing a great deal at once. True greatness consists in being great in little things.

Life is like music; it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule || Samuel Butler

Leisure is a beautiful garment, but it will not do for constant wear || Unknown

Life, like war, is a series of mistakes, and he is not the best Christian nor the best general who makes the fewest mistakes. Poor mediocrity may secure that, but he is best who wins the most splendid victories by the retrieval of mistakes || Frederick W. Robertson

We want to live forever for the same reason that we want to live tomorrow. Why do we want to live tomorrow? It is because there is some one who loves you, and whom you want to see tomorrow, and be with, and love back || Henry Drummond

Is life not full of opportunities for learning love? Every man and woman every day has a thousand of them. The world is not a playground; it is a schoolroom. Life is not a holiday, but an education. And the one eternal lesson for us all is how better we can love || Henry Drummond

Gullibility is the key to all adventures. The greenhorn is the ultimate victor in everything; it is he that gets the most out of life || G.K. Chesterton

Ideas are funny little things. They won't work unless you do || Unknown

Forty is the old age of youth; fifty is the youth of old age || Victor Hugo

You'll always stay young if live honestly, eat slowly, sleep sufficiently, work industriously, and worship faithfully || Unknown

As the soul, itself invisible, is seen by what it does through the body || Johann Albrecht Bengel

Length of life should be measured not by the number of years but by the number of right actions || Desiderius Erasmus

The weapons with which the ill dispositions of the world are to be combated are moderation, gentleness, a little indulgence of others, and a great distrust of ourselves || Edmund Burke

Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement || Barry LePalmer

Life is the art of drawing without an eraser || John Christian

The world will never starve for wonders, but only for want of wonder || G.K. Chesterton

All of the animals except man know that the principle business of life is to enjoy it || Samuel Butler

Go forth today, by the help of God's Spirit, vowing and declaring that in life - come poverty, come wealth, in death - come pain or come what may, you are and ever must be the Lord's. For this is written on your heart, 'We love Him because He first loved us'" || Charles H. Spurgeon

To ease one's heartache is to forget one's own || Abraham Lincoln

A man can no more take in a supply of grace for the future than he can eat enough for the next six months, or take sufficient air into his lungs at one time to sustain life for a week. We must draw upon God's boundless store of grace from day to day as we need it || Dwight Lyman Moody
