Thoughts for the day

Quotable quotes that I have conjured up myself to make people think about the world around them

Words to make you think


Be kind to animals; for it says a lot about who and what you are

Always strive for excellence, but be aware that failure can bring out the best in you in the end

Hold onto the things that are intrinsically invaluable – peace, love, faith, happiness and family

In today’s heady world, a five-minute break can be as good as a holiday

Pray, Pray and Pray – even when the odds seem insurmountable

At times you ought to say: “Give me a break.” I deserve it!

Don’t let life’s little problems get you down .. you'll be up for it a lot sooner
than you think

God has a big enough yoke on which to carry all the world’s burdens

If your job gets you down, say: “Thank you Lord for these hands you made have earned my keep.”

Dear Lord all I ask of you today, is to heal body, mind and soul

Not even death will defeat us, for we know that the Lord has dominion over the beginning and the end

Someone has sent a prayer for you to heaven today.

Prayer kept knocking on my door of hope - and Love walked in.

Don't hit the roof, you might land up with a headache.

Mellifluous music is a beautiful noise.

Misery and evil sleep in the same bed.

Loving parents reprimand a wayward child

If you feel your day has been cursed, try thinking about the many blessings that probably came your way.

It's okay to replay the movie reel of your past, but try viewing the highlights package more
