quotes

I'm a fan of quotes. What about you? I think there are bits of wisdom floating around that have the ability to make me think, maybe even change the way I see something. This is my quote for today:

When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost. Billy Graham, preacher, evangelist, a man in the public eye who has won many to Christ, and whose character has never been questioned.

What is your favorite quote?

LOVE quotes, I have journals filled with quotes! I just LOVE quotes...

This is ONE of my MANY, MANY favorites:

There come times when I have nothing more to tell God. If I were to continue to pray in words, I would have to repeat what I have already said. At such times it is wonderful to say to God, "May I be in Thy presence, Lord? I have nothing more to say to Thee, but I do love to be in Thy presence." ~O. Hallesby

Hey Debbie. I love the fact that you love such an old quote, because there is a lot of wisdom in quotes from great teachers like Spurgeon and others. When I look at your quote that you shared, I see such a simple message, but a message that I have in my heart -- to know God, to be in his presence. To know that he knows what I need before I even ask.

Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, I couldn't agree more with you. :-) And wisdom is something I DEFINITELY want.

I want wisdom, integrity, and purity to be keywords in my life, you know?
