Q is for...

Q is for Quails, Questions and Quotes.

These are some of my favorite quotes from all types of famous, not-so-famous (and otherwise) people from the past and present:

"All that glitters is not gold, and not all who wander are lost."
-J.R.R. Tolkien

"Any situation that calls me to confront my selfishness has enormous spiritual value."
-G. Thomas

"It wasn't that the Gospel proved useful for my many worries, but that the Gospel proved the uselessness of my worries, and so refocused my whole attention."
- Henri J. Nouwen

"We are called to be fruitful - not successful, not productive, not accomplished. Success comes from strength, stress, and human effort. Fruitfulness comes from vulnerability and the admission of our own weakness.”
-Henri J. Nouwen

"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."
-C. S. Lewis

"Now to him who is able to do beyond all things, super-abundantly beyond all we ask or think, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end! Amen."
- Paul

"if it is possible, as much as depends on you, live at peace with everyone"
-Romans 12:18

"Having grievances or resentments is like drinking poison and thinking it will kill your enemy."
-Nelson Mandela
