Quotes About Life

Everyday Things

I was trying to think of something good to write about and low and behold, I thought about trying my luck with some quotes by me, of course. If they don’t suite your fancy, that‘s okay too. This is a first, but I wanted to see what they would look like on paper. Who knows someone might just like them. Please don’t be shy; integrity rules…

“I think life is beautiful, until I bump my toe.”

“I believe everything has a time and a place in our life; but I also believe we must make a time and a place for everything in our life.”

“Good things do happen to those who wait, but nothing comes to those who do not know the difference in wait and waste time.”

“I’m not finished with my life just because I am older; I have learned the essence of youth and more importantly that one never knows everything no matter how old they become.”

“Life if full of trails; but we cannot dwell on those; they are what impels us to become stronger, more vigilant. They teach us perseverance, character and who we are.”

“People think love is the most important emotion; life is not all about love. It is about commitment, integrity, doing what is right, regardless. As we know, not many people can master that; everything is for the sake of love.”

“Helping someone is like helping yourself; it gives you a moment of joy.”

“A laugh at yourself makes you more susceptible to your mistakes and thereby gives you a pat on the back to keep on trying.”

“Is there a time to give up? No, no time to give up, because what would you give up to?”

“Life is not fair, we say; we all know sorrow, we all know pain, but life is clear stage; if we choose to play.”

“I don’t live in regret; I live in revamp; that way I become clean everyday.”

“We can’t change yesterday, nor should we want to. Today is the day we know we have. So, we live each minute with a thought that it might be our last and in so doing, we will not look back tomorrow.”

“Being honest is like being late; we never make up for it.”

“Saying I’m sorry, doesn’t have to be a habit; but it does need to be a part of our vocabulary.”

“I hope I never stop learning, if I should, then I know I would definitely be without the ability to grow.”

“No one is a “Success” all by themselves; they had to have some help along the way.”

“One must accept the fact that life is better when we allow someone to lend us a hand with the hard stuff. Why? That way, no one knows what we don’t know.”

“The best part of getting older is that you can admit you are and nobody cares.”

“How does one find out if they have impressed someone? See if they can look you in the eye!”

“It is strange that compliments are accepted with a frown; you know, why me? Yet, insults and dirty jokes get a laugh.”

Spiritual Quotes

I have not told anyone this but my father was a deacon and minister, so being spiritual is something I know about and these quotes are for a smile.

“A spiritual person does not wait until they need something to pray; they pray continually so that they don’t need Him in a rush.”

“What makes someone right or wrong? I think it is denying the truth and obsessing over the false.”

“Spirituality is not merely saying I am spiritual. It shows everyday in one’s life; you don’t have to tell anyone.”

“Does God know our heart? Yes and he knows our thoughts so we better watch our steps.”

“If we are to be faithful, we must be present when He needs us to help another soul.”

“Our heart is washed white as snow, but what about our tongue.”

“It is said to never pray for patience; we might have to pray for system restore.”

"God does not necessarily want us to give up something; He just wants us to get it santified."

"God is love, God is anything we could ever possibly want or need; so why do we ask for more?"

"What is better than sacrifice? Repentance."

James, thank you so much...You know I am one of those that is not afraid to test the waters and get my feet wet...we baby boomers are like that, I think...but we do rely on God, don't we? Thank you for your compliment.

You know, it is time to create our own quotes and words of wisdom and proverbs - to live by. Good idea. It is a new age, a new era, and certainly a different time and place. We should keep up with the times.

Good quotes! Thank you!
