Beautiful Quotes {George Washington}

I just discovered a love for the words of the wise people of this world. They bring me such comfort and increase to thirst for wisdom deep in me. For a history assignment the past week, I had to look up fifteen quotes from George Washington. What a wise and devoted man! Here are a few of my favorites:

“To be prepared for war is one of the most affective means of preserving peace.”

“If freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we will be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”

“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light.”

“Observe good faith and justice towards all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all.”

Quote

Beautiful Quotes {If Jesus Christ….}

“If Jesus Christ, the holy and perfect God, can die the most horrific death known to the Romans to forgive a world of ungrateful sinners, we should be able to forgive anyone 77×7 times.”

This is what my D-now leader told me when I said, “I just can’t forgive him!” She made a lasting impact on my life by saying that, and I hope it will stick with you too.

Beautiful Quotes {Jim Elliot}

This quote is one of my most favorite quotes EVER because it totally inspires me to preserver through all things, and not only to keep going, but to do it well. To be there 100%. To sacrifice myself for the cause, or the person. To focus not on myself, but to be totally committed to whatever I’m doing. To just rock it in the name of Jesus. This not only applies to what out attitudes should be in our spiritual walk, but with anything we do. Whether it’s doing algebra (this is hardest for me), or living a healthier lifestyle, or working for a living. It’s ultimately all for God’s glory, so be.all.there.
