Priorities

Though I am always in haste, I am never in a hurry because I never undertake more work than I can go through with calmness of spirit.
John Wesley

The trouble with cleaning the house is it gets dirty the next day anyway, so skip a week if you have to. The children are the most important thing.
Barbara Bush

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls: work, family, health, friends and spirit. Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will never be the same.
Brian Dyson

I have decided not to let my time be used up by people to whom I make no difference while I neglect those for whom I am irreplaceable.
Tony Campolo

People often ask me now, “Zinger, is golf still as important to you as it was before you had cancer?” Yes and no. Yes, of course, golf is important to me. I love the game; it is how I make a living. But no, golf is no longer at the top of my priority list. In fact, it runs a slow fourth. My priorities now are God, my family, my friends and golf.
Paul Azinger

The Importance of Leisure

If you would be free from nervous tension and live a healthier life, widen your interests, broaden yourself. There is a rich world around you in books, paintings, music, sports and most important, people.
Norman Vincent Peale

I would not exchange my leisure hours for all the wealth in the world.
Comte de Mirabeau

The superficiality of the American is the result of his hustling. It needs leisure to think things out; it needs leisure to mature. People in a hurry cannot think, cannot grow.
Eric Hoffer

Games lubricate the body and the mind.
Benjamin Franklin

Bowmen bend their bows when they wish to shoot; unbrace them when the shooting is over. Were they kept always strung they would break and fail the archer in time of need. So it is with men. If they give themselves constantly to serious work, and never indulge awhile in pastime or sport, they lose their senses and become mad.
Herodotus

How to Pray

We should speak to God from our own hearts and talk to Him as a child talks to his father.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Hurry is the death of prayer.
Samuel Chadwick

Spread out your petition before God, and then say, “Thy will, not mine, be done.” The sweetest lesson I have learned in God’s school is to let the Lord choose for me.
D.L. Moody

The best prayers have often more groans than words.
John Bunyan

In your prayers, above everything else, beware of limiting God, not only through unbelief but also by thinking you know exactly what He can do. Learn to expect the unexpected, beyond all that you ask or think.
L.B. Cowman

The Importance of Rest

The places of rest that we carve out for ourselves are often where we best assess our life, our dreams, our heartaches, our faith. The power of rest is that it allows us to enjoy the journey of life, not just the destination.
T.D. Jakes

Rest has cured more people than all the medicine in the world.
Harold Reilly

For every time in stress, you need a recovering time in relaxation.
Emmett Miller

Part of productivity is rest, recreation and renewal.
Fran Tarkenton

Renewal and restoration are not luxuries, they are essentials. Being alone and resting for a while is not selfish; it is Christlike. Taking your day off each week or rewarding yourself with a relaxing, refreshing vacation is not carnal; it’s spiritual.
Charles Swindoll

The Right Pace

An unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth.
Bonnie Friedman

There’s an old Italian proverb: “The person who goes quietly, goes with health and goes far.” Hurrying up and using a lot of shortcuts doesn’t get us very far at all.
Fred Rogers

Slow down, for whatever you really want will be there when you get there. If you work toward it without stress, without pressing. If, proceeding under God’s guidance and in His smooth and unhurried tempo, it is not there, then it was not supposed to be there.
Norman Vincent Peale

My father seems pretty comfortable being in the present moment, and he is never in a hurry. He takes life at his own pace, and he loves the people in his life the same way – slow and steady. He never gives the impression that he’s looking over your shoulder to see if someone more interesting or more important is approaching.
Amy Grant
