Inspirational Quotes, Sayings and Quotations

 What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

-Walt Emerson

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out. Don't give up though the pace seems slow--You may succeed with another blow, Success is failure turned inside out--The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.


...the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it. - The Lion King


The measure of a man?s real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

-T.B. Macaulay

The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it.

-General H. Norman Schwarzkopf

The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.


May we never let the things we can�t have, or don�t have, or shouldn�t have, spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness, let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have. Richard L. Evans

-Richard L. Evans

Integrity is shown when no one is looking.


The wise man in the storm prays to God, not for safety from danger, but for deliverance from fear.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

God is not on the side of the big battalions, but on the side of those who shoot best.


God is a circle whose center is everywhere and circumference nowhere.


An ideal form of government is democracy tempered with assassination.


It is lamentable, that to be a good patriot one must become the enemy of the rest of mankind.

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

Song Lyrics to "War" by Sick Puppies

Lock and load
Rock and roll
Bitch it's all over
You're going down
You're going down

Get ready to settle the score
And get ready to face the floor
Cause it's time to remember it (war)

This is war
And it's on tonight
So get up and fight
Get up and fight
You had all your life
To run and hide
Now step up, now step up
Let's do this

"War"- Sick Puppies

-Julius Caesar; William Shakespeare

"Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go, I will go and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.

~Serenity Prayer~
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
