Just Some Things Worth Repeating

Below are some pretty good one-liners.
Some of them have been told to me recently.
Some I've carried with me for a long time.
Some I've read and they've caught my attention.

"The conversion of a soul is the miracle of a moment, the manufacture of a saint is the task of a lifetime."---Alan Redpath

"All those years, when you worked on a Church staff, God paid you while He was developing your character. Now you've got so much character, He doesn't have to pay you anything."--- Donald Sims

"The most important things in life are not things.--- Dale Yerton

"A true friend stabs you in the chest."--- Oscar Wilde

"If your output is more than your income then your upkeep will be your downfall."--- Kemp Holden

"Anyone who must have superficial sounds to survive lacks depth."---Charles Swindoll

"Integrity is more than "not doing things." It's revealing to people things before you do them."--- Dale Yerton

"Talent will get you where you're going, character will keep you there."---Jentezen Franklin

"There is a difference between success and significance. You first must know which one you want to become."---Rick Clendenen

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different results."---Original author unknown

There are tons more I could write down, but honestly I've been sort of disappointed that my last few blogs have been so long. I like to keep things short and to the point. I zone out on most blogs that are over 3 to 4 paragraphs, so needless to say my last few post haven't even kept my attention. HA!!

If you have some "words of wisdom" that you've heard or read, please feel free to leave them in a comment, I'd love to hear them.


  1. i love a good quote, and you have captured a few good one's here. A few recent ones i stumbled upon...

    life is a journey, you needn't power or wealth to suvive it but with love in your heart, you can face down a snow storm.

    Happiness is a choice, not a function of ambition.

    Both came from Random Acts of Heroic Love, a fictional work i just read. highly recommend.

  2. A man's legacy does not consist of the things that he builds during his lifetime, but the things that remain after he is gone.

  3. Nice!!! I like that, gonna have to share that.

  4. We have assumed that when revival breaks out, that repentance will come. However, it is when repentance comes that revival will break out.
