Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

Bruce Barton

Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress.

Dean Acheson

Always remember that the future comes one day at a time.

Arnold Bennett
Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.

John A. Simone, Sr.

If you're in a bad situation, don't worry it'll change. If you're in a good situation, don't worry it'll change.

C. S. Lewis

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.


Anatole France

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
