I’m such a sucker for profound or witty things other people say.
Often I find myself Googling to find that perfect quote to fill the status update on my Facebook page. Yes, I realize that is sort of cheating, but isn’t “It is not length of life, but depth of life.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) so much more inspiring than “It’s going to be a great day!” (Kristy Tolley)
I even take notes and write quotes in my Bible (God-related, of course – mostly!). That’s what gave me the idea to share a couple in my blog today. Well, that and the fact that I haven’t blogged in way too long.
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” Jim Elliot
“Everything you give has a destination.” Talbot Davis (my pastor)
Who knows – maybe if I saturate myself with words of wisdom and inspiration on a regular basis, someone may end up quoting me one day. Okay, maybe not. At the very least, perhaps by ingesting and living out encouraging or thought provoking quotes, I can help make the world a little bit nicer for someone.
