Possessions

Surround yourself with living things: people, pets and plants. They’re the best anecdote for a material-driven culture.
Paula Jhung

I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.
Corrie ten Boom

Possessions are very nice to have, to enjoy, to share. But if you find even one that you can’t live without – hasten to give it away. Your very freedom depends on it.
Conrad Hilton

Do not try to live up to your neighbors. They are only interested in their possessions, not yours.
Barbara Bush

If you focus on things, and the acquisition of things, your drive to acquire them will often be in spite of the good things you should be acquiring on the inside. People who concentrate on the acquisition of material things take shortcuts to acquire them and skip the steps necessary to build long-term attitude in exchange for short-term self-gratification.

The Power of Self-Discipline

Many people see discipline as the absence of freedom, when in fact it is the source of freedom.
Stephen Covey

Resistance, whether to one’s appetites or to the ways of the world, is a chief factor in the shaping of character.
Eric Hoffer

Every successful man or woman I’ve ever known did many things when not feeling 100 percent. The interesting thing is that often when we start doing something we don’t feel like doing, we end up feeling like doing it.
Zig Ziglar

When I ask myself if I want an ice cream soda, I answer Not as badly as I want a gold medal.
Kathy Johnson

I like to swim, but there are some days I just don’t feel much like doing it – but I do it anyway. I know it’s good for me and I promised myself I’d do it every day, and I like to keep my promises. That’s one of my disciplines. And it’s a good feeling after you’ve tried and done something well.
Fred Rogers

The Best Book

Men turn this way and that in their search for new sources of comfort and inspiration, but the enduring truths are to be found in the Word of God.
Elizabeth, the Queen Mother

Other books were given for our information, the Bible was given for our transformation.
The Defender

The Bible, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests.
Andrew Jackson

The Bible is alive, it speaks to me, it has hands, it lays hold on me.
Martin Luther

It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom.
Horace Greeley
