Ten Frame-Worthy Quotes

I’m one of those quote junkies.  I have a pinterest board full of quotes and a notebook crammed tight with wonderful words.  There are chalkboards in our house that I am constantly scribbling upon with inspirational sayings.  A bare wall is a canvas for filling with wise ideas and feelings.  So here are ten quotes that I really enjoy (believe me, I have hundreds more- which I can share another time;).  Keep Tuned-  Sometime within the next month, I’ll plan to share different ways to frame the words you love.

“Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.” – Henry Van Dyke

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.” – Og Mandino

“It’s not what the world holds for you. It’s what you bring to it.” – Kevin Sullivan (Anne of Green Gables/Sequel)
For those who are married—-
“He always dreamt of being a hero. She always dreamt of being a princess. As fate would have it, he’s her hero and she’s his princess.”  Or reword…  “He always dreamt of being a hero.  She always dreamt of being a princess.  So now as God had planned it, he’s her hero and she’s his princess.”

“All that is gold does not glitter,  Not all those who wander are lost;  The old that is strong does not wither,  Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

For teachers—–
“The kids that need the most love often ask for it in the most unloving ways.” – Unknown

“God is using your present circumstances to make you more useful
for later roles in His unfolding story.” – Louie Giglio

“Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk,
but no flowers grow on it.” – Vincent van Gogh
“All their life in this world and all their adventures had only been
the cover and the title page: now at last
they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which
no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever:
in which every chapter is better than the one before.”
― C. S. Lewis, The Last Battle
