Christ, detail of Last Supper, 1495-1497
Leonardo da Vinci
Successful living hinges on the capacity to believe.
The unconquered and unconquerable of this world are those who have mastered the art of faith. They draw constantly on this inner source of strength, for they have acquired and hold fresh in their hearts an abiding faith- in a higher power, and in their own destiny.
Without such Faith they are defenseless before the inevitable difficulties that all must face; with it they are armored against even the most cruel of adversaries.
From the book , The Art of Real Happiness, by Norman Vincent Peale
God doesn't require us to succeed; He only requires that you try.- Mother Teresa
Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all Flesh. Is anything too hard for Me?
Jeremiah 32:7
Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you are doing it. Maya Angelo, Poet
We can't take any credits for our talents. It's how we use them that counts. Madeleine L' Engle, Writer
This is the thought to ponder on today:
" Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
- Nelson Mandela

Thanks for your comments.

So why not make one?
