Quote of the Day – Barbara Brown Taylor on Faith

Today’s quote really doesn’t need much introduction. I think it really does speak for itself. It’s message is bold and open. To make bread or love, to dig in the earth, to feed an animal or cook for a stranger — these activities require no extensive commentary, no lucid theology. All they require is someone…

Quote of the Day – Thomas Merton on Faith

Today’s quote is a good reminder for us all. Sometimes you just have to believe you’re taking the right steps, going in the right direction and making all the right decisions. I remember the words from The West Wing if ever I need a boost in the right way, “Act as if ye have faith…

Quote of the Day – Martha Graham on Practice

This is probably one of the hardest things for me to remember, do it over, then do it again, until you’re good, or better, at your task. I”m impatient, I want to be proficient at things right away. Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of…

Quote of the Day – Marilyn Monroe on Fate

There’s a weird resurgence of Marilyn Monroe as of late. I’m surprised she’s become popular again. Other things that are surprising to me? The many layers of her character. At any rate, today’s her birthday. I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go…

Quote of the Day – Stewart White on Strength

Looking for a quote today, I found myself going in circles. Nothing I could find seemed to express what I was thinking until I ran across this quote by Stewart White. If you are unsure of yourself, you may not give it your all. If someone else isn’t sure of you, you may not give…

Quote of the Day – Marshall Lumsden on Freedom of Speech

Of all the rights the Bill of Rights affords us, my most favorite is the Freedom of Speech, running close behind is the right against unreasonable search and State’s Rights not enumerated. I love spirited discussions, I love it when educated people come together with their ideas and stand firm upon them. I just hate…

Quote of the Day – Issac Asimov on Belief

I love when you can proof something; I love when you know you’re right. Tangible results are my friend, though sometimes you just know – you just believe in something – to be real. I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I’ll believe anything, no matter how…

Quote of the Day – Nikos Kazantzakis on Trusting Others

I really enjoy this quote. It screams at me: Nothing can stand in your way, keep reaching higher and further, faster and faster. Nothing can limit you, but you. I choose the ascending path because my heart drives me toward it. “Upward! Upward! Upward!” my heart shouts, and I follow it trustingly. – Nikos Kazantzakis…

Quote of the Day: Edward Teller on Having Choices

In case you’ve never heard the name and you’re wondering: Who is Edward Teller? He’s the father of the hydrogen bomb. When you get to the end of all the light you know and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either…

Quote of the Day – e.e. Cummings on Being Yourself

Sometimes it’s good to be yourself, who you truly are at your core, in the face of all things trying to move you. Sometimes it’s good. 🙂 “To be nobody but myself — in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else — means to fight the hardest…
