Quotes

Here's a collection of quotes that I've seen recently that I like.


"We ought, once and for all, heartily put our whole trust in God, and make a total surrender of ourselves to Him, secure that He would not deceive us. We ought not weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed."
Author unimoportant
 
A little girl began picking flowers in a field where her mother and she were walking. "Who are those beautiful flowers for sweetheart?" her mother asked. "They are for God." the little girl replied. The mother then asked "How will you give them to him?" to which the little girl replied, "He put them here this morning, he has to be around here somewhere!"
 "My great concern is not whether God is on our side. My great concern is to be on God's side." --Abraham Lincoln.
 "If I live, I will fight, wherever I must, as long as I must, Until the enemy is defeated and the national stain washed clean."-- Charles de Gaulle, 1954
"To be Queen Elizabeth within a definite area, deciding sales, banquets, labours, and holidays; to be Whitely within a certain area, providing toys, boots, cakes and books; to be Aristotle within a certain area, teaching morals, manners, theology, and hygiene; I can imagine how this can exhaust the mind, but I cannot imagine how it could narrow it. How can it be a large career to tell other people about the Rule of Three, and a small career to tell one's own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone and narrow to be everything to someone? No, a woman's function is  laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute." --G.K. Chesterton.
 "The philosophy of the classroom in this generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next."
"The attitude of our heart will determine the atmosphere of our home which will affect the actions of each member or our family." --Nancy Campbell. 
"'Mother'- a word that holds the tender spell, of the dear essential things of earth; A home, clean sunlit rooms, and the good smell of bread, a table spread, a glowing hearth. And love beyond the dream of anyone... I search for words for her...and there are none." --Grace Noll Crowell.
