Quotes Of The Quotable

"Only one principle will give you courage - that no evil lasts forever, nor indeed for very long."     Epicurus

"Lord, on You I call for help against my blind and senseless torment.  You alone can renew inwardly and outwardly my mind, my will, my strength - which are weak."  Michelangelo

"Receive what cheer you may.  The night is long that never finds the day."                           Shakespeare

"Suffering is a misfortune, as seen from the one side, and a discipline, as seen from the other."        CSR

"Look for the truth - search for the good - hope for the best."  Anon.

"The triumph of evils occurs when good men do nothing."  Edmund (Abrgd)

"When you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back into you."  Neitzsche

"Just as a burden shared is a burden lessened, a sunbeam reflected is a shared brightness, multiplying itself in the glory of God."   csr

"If your teeth bother you, don't worry.  Just ignore them and they'll go away."    csr

"Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground."  Jerry B.

"Man plans, God laughs."  Anon.

                             ( A bit more of my prose )

Your giving has allowed my living.  Praying is something that can change a life, can rearrange a soul in strife.

All the days I am lost and afraid,

always do I find the glory of Your heart's rays

sent to warm, received with praise.

Or the coolness of the shade, Your aid to me

when I burn in the sand - without a tree

on this so risky land.

You only, have reached to me with Your hand

without a moment's thought -

and through this act of pure love I see

my life You caught, before I could fall.

For this, I thank You -

I thank You for it all.

"Man plans, God laughs."  Anon.......I like that one, it makes sense. All the control that we think we have, and in reality, we have nothing. -Missy

Wonderful quotes to reflect on.  I enjoyed reading these this morning.   There were a few that hit home more than others.
The prose was wonderfully full of blessings and reflectiveness too.
I enjoyed your entry today.

In answer to Gerry B's Any philosophy that can be put "in a nutshell" truly belongs there and to you "But words are things, and a small drop of ink falling like dew upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think" Sir Aubrey De Vere. So there you go Cathy  
Just as an after thought I might add Thornton Wilder, "Seek the lofty by reading, hearing and seeing great work at some moment every day" ED

In your section (A Bit More of my Prose) there seems to be a connection to the "Gardner" in another entry in your Journal? Yes?  ;)
God bless the "Mighty Oak" - this tree stands proudly in honor of yesterday's nut that held it's ground.  I will remember this little quote next time I see an Oak Tree. Thanks, Cath!
