Even More Kinkade Quotes


It is a good thing to “live in the light”.

Schedules and routines were made to serve us, not to rule us.

Even if events don’t turn  out the way we want, we still have options and new possibilities.

Pay attention to your passions, your purposes, and your pursuits.

Small gestures, small events, small experiences often mean the most.

With every creative act, you light a fresh candle for a darkened world.

You can choose to trust in the richness and beauty of life.

The hard work of creativity includes the work of getting good enough to do what you really want to do.

It takes courage to push ourselves off center, to think in nonstandard ways.

If you want beauty in your life, you simply have to go outdoors from time to time.

Believe It Or Not


Frederick Buechner, American writer, novelist, poet, autobiographer, essayist, preacher, and theologian is one of many authors who makes us sit up and take notice of what goes on around us as well as what goes on inside of us. Here is a recent quote from Facebook.

UNBELIEF IS AS MUCH OF A CHOICE as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that, whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn’t require much of anything at all. 

In my opinion, in order to believe we must choose to do so. I’m so happy I made that choice.

Jesus told him, “Is it because you’ve seen me that you have believed? How blessed are those who have never seen me and yet have believed!” International Standard Version

Happy Sunday.

More Thomas Kinkade Quotes


Thomas Kinkade was known as the Painter of Light because of the beautiful hints of light in all of his paintings. Here are a few more of his quotes.

Feed your heart with beauty.

Somewhere out there is a unique place for you to serve, a unique life role for you to fill.

Condition yourself for joy by doing little things you love on a regular basis.

Even the most mundane tasks can be transformed into inspiring sources of joy.

Opening our eyes to beauty really means opening our hearts and imaginations.

Beauty enters your heart to all the senses. 

Keep your eyes open for the signs of spiritual reality hiding behind a familiar disguise.

Only you can make your particular contribution to humankind.

We live far more joyfully when we allow ourselves a playful spirit.

Don’t be afraid to go deep, to dig out a spiritual reality that might not be readily discernible at first glance.

More to come.

 

At Peace With Your Thoughts


It’s Saturday again and there may be much to do or maybe little. Be at peace with your thoughts.

Here are a couple more quotes from Kahlil Giban:

“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”

“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.”

“You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts.”

(I’m not sure about this last one.)

Happy Saturday.

 

As Promised


As promised, here are a few quotes from the famous author of The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran.

“If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were.”

“One day you will ask me which is more important? My life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life.”

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”

“We are all like the bright moon, we still have our darker side.”

“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”

“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”

 

A Profound Truth


One of my favorite poets, Kahlil Gibran, (1883-1931) author of The Prophet, penned the following:

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

This is such a profound truth that it gave me almost instant relief from a sadness I was experiencing, because it made so much sense.

I believe I have posted a couple of Gibran’s quotes at one time or another and will do so again in the next day or two.
