Quotes For A Great Life

Less worry, less bitterness, be content and having a positive attitude towards the future fueled by a passion to learn– When I discovered the blog site, Higher Up and Further In (Please check it out) In it I found some good quotes to help in these critical areas of our lives. They remind me of my life. They are quotes to help overcome discouragement. My children and I have learned “Attitude” by Chuck Swindol which also helps in the same manner as these quotes.

Worry Less:
“We lose many irreplaceable hours brooding over grievances that, in a year’s time, will be forgotten by us and by everybody.
No, let us devote our life to worthwhile actions and feelings,
to great thoughts,
real affections
and enduring undertakings.”
Andre Maurois
“One day at a time- this is enough.
Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come.
Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.”
Ida Scott Taylor
Don’t Harbor Bitterness:
“Decide to forgive:
For resentment is negative;
resentment is poisoning;
resentment diminishes and devours the self.”
Robert Muller

Be Content:
“Remember that not to be happy is not to be grateful..”
Elizabeth Carter
“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not;
but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for.”
“The manner in which one endures
what must be endured is more important than
the thing that must be endured.”
Dean Acheson
Keep Growing and Learning:
“Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly,
as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country,
to meet many a joy,
to find many a comrade,
to win and lose many a battle.”
Annie Besant
The book to read is not the one which thinks for you,
but the one which makes you think.”
James McCosh

    Hi Linda,
    Thanks for taking the time to comment over at my way. I just wanted to let you know that only Andre Maurois, not Chief Seattle made the quote about brooding over grievances. This is my fault and I might not have noticed had I not visited your blog. I change the quotes out every month and evidently, Chief Seattle’s name inadvertently, didn’t get removed. Sorry about that.

    Oops, I meant Robert Muller’s quote did not include Chief Seattle, not Maurois.
