Quotes To Live By

slow to get angry,full of unfailing love.

He showers compassion on all His


Proverbs 10 v 12

Hatred stirs up quarrels, but love covers all offenses.

Proverbs 11 v 17

Your own soul is nourished when you are kind,

but you destroy yourself when you are cruel.

Proverbs 11 v 24, 25 + 27

It is possible to give freely and become more wealthy,

but those who are stingy will lose everything.

The generous prosper and are satisfied;

those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

If you search for good, you will find favor;

but if you search for evil, it will find you!

To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch

or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life breathed easier because you have lived;

This is to have succeeded.
