GREAT QUOTES- Compiled by W.F. Bell

On Happy Memories
"Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I'll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I've stored away....Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you've put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories." (92 year old man)

New Names & New Bottles
"Today new personalities and new terminologies are among us but the same virus merely sports new names. What we used to call rheumatism is now arthritis but it hurts just the same. Putting poison in a new bottle and calling it ginger ale makes it all the more dangerous."(Vance Havner)

On Ignorance
"We are all ignorant -- only on different subjects."
(Will Rogers)

God in Every Little Thing
"There is a God in the motion of a grain of dust blown by the summer wind, as much as in the revolutions of the stupendous planet. There is a God in the sparkling of a fire-fly as truly as in the flaming comet. Carry home, I beseech you, to your houses the thought that God is there, at your table, in your bed-chamber, in your work-room, and at your counter. Recognize the doing and being of God in every little thing." (Charles Spurgeon)

Patience, Patience
"Patience is a bitter plant but it has sweet fruit."
(German proverb)

The Wise and The Foolish
"A wise man will hear and will increase learning....but fools despise wisdom and instruction." (Proverbs 1:5-7)

Meditation on Christ
"To believe a thing is to see the cool crystal water sparkling in the cup. But to meditate on it is to drink of it....Everything is a trifle to a Christian except the glorifying of Christ." (Charles Spurgeon)
