I love this quote!

That is a cool one! *saves to quotes document*

Here's one of my favorites from Frank Sinatra.

Frank Sinatra wrote:
I may sound old-fashioned, but I want to think all women should be treated like I want my wife, daughters and granddaughters to be treated. I notice today that good manners -- like standing up when a woman enters the room, helping a woman with her coat, letting her enter an elevator first, taking her arm to cross the street -- are sometimes considered unnecessary or a throwback. These are habits I could never break, nor would I want to. I realize today a lot more women are taking care of themselves than in the past, but no woman is offended by politeness.


And one more I found cool...

C.S. Lewis wrote:
All that we call human history—money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery—is the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.

Our Pastor read out a little bit of this poem on Sunday, and I had to look it up. Very touching: sad but poignant.

Solitude by Ella Wheeler-Wilcox wrote:
Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air;
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go;
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all,—
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life’s gall.

Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a large and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain.

I've heard that first line before but had no idea it was part of a larger poem. Poignant is the word that comes to my mind too.

*Slips in* I know most of the folks who are active on here nowadays probably don't know me, but I've been reading through the book Experiencing God and stumbled across this gem so I thought I'd throw it in here:

"Your life is too valuable to waste by trusting your own best thinking."
