When we stop fearing failure, we start being artists. (3/20/2012)
Helen Keller:
"I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble."
Dorothy Sayers:
Whenever man is made the centre of things, he becomes the storm center of trouble. The moment you think of serving people, you begin to have a notion that other people owe you something for your pains . . . You will begin to bargain for reward, to angle for applause.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer:
The Christian needs another Christian who speaks God's Word to him.  He needs him again and again when he becomes uncertain and discouraged, for by himself he cannot help himself without belying the truth.  He needs his brother as a bearer and proclaimer of the divine word of salvation.
Charles Swindol:
When it comes to rearing children, every society is only 20 years away from barbarianism. Twenty years is all we have to accomplish the task of civilizing the infants who are born into our midst each year. These savages know nothing of our language, our culture, our religion, our values, or our customs of interpersonal relations. The infant is totally ignorant about communism, fascism, democracy, civil liberties, and the rights of the minority as contrasted with the prerogatives of the majority, respect, decency, honesty, customs conventions, and manners. The barbarian must be tamed if civilization is to survive. (Family Life, Multnomah Press. Page 102.)
Ann VosKamp:
Eating Scripture three times a day, it's the one spiritual habit that has most changed us -- because a body, famished, needs to eat and there's only one way to eat life. (6-8-11)
G.K. Chesterson:
“It [feminism] is mixed up with a muddled idea that women are free when they serve their employers but slaves when they help their husbands.” 
Charlotte Mason:
"Education is an atmosphere"
Eleanor Roosevelt:
"The only advantage in not being too good a housekeeper is that your guests are so pleased to feel how very much better they are."
("My Day" syndicated column - June 7, 1939)
Oswald Chambers:
 "And the Lord turned the captivity of Job when he prayed for his friends" - Job 42:10
"...Enter into the ministry of the interior.  The real business of your life as a saved soul is intercessory prayer.  Wherever God puts you in circumstances, pray immediately, pray that His Atonement may be realized in other lives as it has been in yours.  Pray for your friends now; pray for those with whom you come in contact now."
