I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
I have seen the best of you, and the worst of you, and I choose both.
Be the one who nurtures and builds. Be the one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them.
I know I'm not going to be in your head all the time. But once you know me, I'll be forever in your heart.
Do your best and let God do the rest.
I agree with yours of the 22d that a professorship of Theology should have no place in our institution. but we cannot always do what is absolutely best. those with whom we act, entertaining different views, have the power and the right of carrying them into practice. truth advances, & error recedes step by step only; and to do to our fellow-men the most good in our power, we must lead where we can, follow where we cannot, and still go with them, watching always the favorable moment for helping them to another step.
[Comment on establishing Jefferson's University of Virginia, a secular college, in a letter to Thomas Cooper 7 October 1814]
عندما تكون متعبًا أو مرتبكًا ولا تعرف بماذا تدعو ، فادع بأن يحقق الله مايرى أنه الأفضل لك
The best gifts come from the heart, not the store.
I never recognized Sunshine shining me, within me.
You will learn your best lessons from the worst people.
There is no beauty like being your best.
Keep a light, hopeful heart. But expect the worst.
Happiness depends not on things around me, but on my attitude.
The monument of a great man is not of granite or marble or bronze. It consists of his goodness, his deeds, his love and compassion.
Don't ever let that feeling that you were meant to do great things turn out to be a lie.
The worst can happen, but the best remains
As individuals, we hardly have any control over the world. At best, what we can do is try controlling ourselves.
Faith has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with belief.
Don't seek to become better than any other man, be just and be good.
For God measures not individuals achievements nor goals,
God will judge you by your heart, so everything you do,
DO IT IN a hearty manner
The best work that anybody ever writes is the work that is on the verge of embarrassing him, always.
