PUSH YOUR LIMITS. You are your biggest barrier to achieving more and reaching your God-given destiny. […] Nothing can’t be done unless you say it can’t be done.

If He says it can be done, I will do it, despite what others say or think

Mammon wants you to think, ‘If I just had more money, I could really start helping people and giving more to the kingdom.’ Keep in mind, Jesus never told anyone the answer was more money. Money is not the answer to problems – God is.”

True worship is revealed by who we obey, not who we sing to.

Albus Dumbledore. Harry Potter VII. J.K. Rowling


There seems to be a kind of order in the universe, in the movement of the stars and the turning of the earth and the changing of the seasons, and even in the cycle of human life. But human life itself is almost pure chaos. Everyone takes his stance, asserts his own rights and feelings, mistaking the motives of others, and his own.

Katherine Anne Porter


The only way to stand out, is to make content that cannot be ignored

Yuri W. 2015


Being short-sighted means two things; One. I can’t see clearly the path in front of me. Two, I rely completely on Him to walk forward. Even if I stumble, He will immediately pick me up and set my feet on solid ground. He brings my world into focus when I choose to focus on Him.

Charlie. The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)


You shouldn’t lie till ten. There’s the very prime of the morning gone long before that time. A person who has not done one-half his day’s work by ten o’clock, runs a chance of leaving the other half undone.

Wuthering Heights (Nelly Dean)


We must not be so ready to fancy ourselves intentionally injured.

Jane Bennet. Pride & Prejudice


The dearest idol I have known,

Whatever that idol may be,

Help me tear it form Thy throne,

And worship only Thee

Cowper


It is always a capital mistake, Watson, to theorize in advance of the facts

Sherlock Holmes 


The truth is, God doesn’t always move the clouds to show us which way to go. Instead, God asks us to be faithful, to make choices with our lives that honor him. He asks us to get our priorities in order, to turn away from worldly standards of success and achievement and to bend our will to that of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. And as we follow his example, walking in his ways, we begin to think more like him. Paul tells us in Romans 12:2: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

We will make our share of mistakes in life decisions. At times, we will undoubtedly go when we should stay and stay when we should go. But the promise that God gives us is that no matter where we go—to a new state, to a new job, to a new stage of family life—our God goes with us.

Carla Barnhill

30th January 2010


You cannot elevate your experience over the authority of scripture in order to be happy. Christianity isn’t about you being happy. It’s not about personal fulfillment. Sacrifice and suffering were integral to the life of Christ. And as Christians we are called to deny ourselves, to take up our crosses and to follow Him.

Matthew Vines


A person without conviction is at the mercy of circumstances. The people who have made the greatest impact on this world, for good or evil, weren’t necessarily the smartest, wealthiest, or the best educated people but their convictions moved them to move the world.

Rick Warren


Victory, to me, is about defeating the one main opponent we all have, which is ourselves. The battle, I believe, is not literally always with another dancer, it’s about victory over your insecurities, your bad habits, your laziness, your flaws… Trying to be the best you can be, not the best in a contest. Contests are necessary to gain experience and learn stuff but to me, my dance life has no end.

Joel Tan. Urban Groove Dance Network


The less distractions you have, the easier it is to focus on doing what is right.

Maybe I’ll get famous as the man who can’t be moved

The Man Who Can’t Be Moved. The Script


No matter how dirty something gets, you can always clean it right up

Hebrew 11:6 says God rewards those who diligently seek Him in faith. It does not say He rewards those who casually seek Him and wonder in doubt.

John Bevere. Having an Eternal Perspective


Maybe it’s not too hard to find the words, if I wasn’t so busy taking them for granted.

19th January 2010


If we shadows have offended,

Think but this and all is mended,

That you have but slumbered here

While these visions did appear,

And this weak and idle theme,

No more yielding but a dream.

Puck. A Midsummer’s Nights Dream


Of course God knows you’re here; it’s just that some people spend part of their life running from Him and the rest thinking they go unnoticed.

Mitch Albom. The 5 people you meet in Heaven


People say they “find” love, as if it were an object hidden by a rock. But love takes many forms, and it is never the same for any man or woman. What people find then is a certain love.

Mitch Albom. The 5 people you meet in Heaven


Some things in life we just don’t want to see. But if Martin Luther was living, he wouldn’t let this be, no-no.

They Don’t Really Care About Us. Michael Jackson.


Ah, you mock me. But perhaps one day when you’ve awaken from a pleasant

slumber to the scent of a warm brioche smothered in marmalade and fresh cream

butter you will understand that life is not solely comprised of tasks but tastes.

Leopold. Kate & Leopold (2001)


There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see the world, the more I am dissatisfied with it; and every day conforms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense.

Elizabeth Bennet. Pride and Prejudice


Sometimes I feel irritated to the point of change.

I think that’s the way God intended it.

15th March 2010


It seems like God goes out of His way for me to make sure I don’t fall away.

Yang Shi Wei. 22 Jan 2010


Sata

If you go ahead and listen carefully, you’ll hear the familiar sounds of no one caring.

Dr. Cox. Scrubs. Season 1 Episode 13


Satan and his evil angels, then, are defeated foes. They may strive might and main to thwart the work of Christ, but they shall not succeed. They may rock the boat, but cannot sink it. They may recommend evil to a person, but cannot compel anyone to sin. They may threaten to cause a believer to forsake his faith, but are quite unable to pluck anyone from the hand of the Saviour.

Walking with Giants Blog


Sinners sin by definition so for us to think the world should act like the Bible says is wrong.

Ps. Mark Elmendorp


Bad things happen to us because God is actually calling us to a deeper faith, one that trusts Him and chooses to stay with Him even when His love for us includes losses, the relinquishment of dreams and earthly hopes, and painful experiences for which there will be no remedy in this lifetime.

Lydia Brownback


I’m not rich. But I’m satisfied.

Calvin Tay


Independence is not the same as doing things in isolation

Caroline Ho 


The future is scary. But you can’t just run back to the past because it’s familiar. Yes, it’s tempting… but it’s a mistake.

Robin Scherbatsky. How I Met Your Mother. Season 6 Episode 24


One does not surrender a life in an instant.
That which is lifelong can only be surrendered in a lifetime.

Elisabeth Elliot


You don’t become a great bouncer overnight, it takes at least 12 hours

Tigger. Season 4 Episode 7


To me, choreo is like heavy make up on an ugly face, good foundation and technique is a pretty face that shines even without make up.

Joel Tan. Urban Groove Dance Network


‘Tis not too late to seek a newer world
For my purpose holds to sail beyond the sunset,
and tho’ we are not now that strength which in old days 
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
 
One equal temper of heroic hearts, 
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will 
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

 

Ulysses. Alfred Lord Tennyson
