A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on blessings, children, god, potential, and strength

As children of God we are somebody. He will build us, mold us, and magnify us if we will but hold our heads up, our arms out, and walk with him. What a great blessing to be created in his image and know our true potential in and through him! What a great blessing to know that in his strength we can do all things!

Marvin J. Ashton (1915 - 1994)

A Quote by Mark Sauer on blessings, funny, and joy

Blessings on thee, maiden fair, bare back, bare legs, bare here and there! With thy funny pantaloons and thy praising modern tunes! With thy red lips, redder still, smeared with rouge, til fit to kill. With the face cream on thy face, for thy blouse a bit of lace! Outward sunshine, inward joy, we'd nothing like you when I was a boy.

A Quote by Marjorie Holmes on blessings, day, direction, gifts, god, grace, justice, and work

Oh, God, give me grace for this day. Not for a lifetime, nor for next week, nor for tomorrow, just for this day. Direct my thoughts and bless them Direct my work and bless it. Direct the things I say and give them blessing, too. Direct and bless everything that I think and speak and do. So that for this one day, just this one day, I have the gift of grace that comes from your presence. . . .

A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on blessings, brevity, giving, journeys, laws, life, and nature

Spend your brief moment according to nature's law, and serenely greet the journey's end as an olive falls when it is ripe, blessing the branch that bare it, and giving thanks to the tree that gave it life.

Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180)

A Quote by Maltbie Davenport Babcock on blessings, business, character, god, life, and trouble

The tests of life are to make, not break us. Trouble may demolish a man's business but build up his character. The blow at the outward man may be the greatest blessing to the inner man. If God, then, puts or permits anything hard in our lives, be sure that the real peril, the real trouble, is that we shall lose if we flinch or rebel.

A Quote by Luther Burbank on blessings, children, evolution, fulfillment, god, happiness, health, humanity, intelligence, life, love, nature, observation, plants, principles, progress, simplicity, and world

I see humanity now as one vast plant, needing for its highest fulfillment only love, the natural blessings of the great outdoors, and intelligent crossing and selection. In the span of my own lifetime I observed such wondrous progress in plant evolution that I look forward optimistically to a healthy, happy world as soon as its children are taught the principles of simple and rational living. We must return to nature and nature's god.

A Quote by Lucille Clifton on blessings, fatherhood, husbands, and motherhood

if i should enter the house and speak with my own voice, at last, about its awful furnitutre, pulling apart the covering over the dusty bodies; the randy father, the husband holding ice in his hand like a blessing, the mother bleeding into herself and the small imploding girl, i say if i should walk into that web, who will come flying after me, leaping tall buildings? you?

Lucille Clifton (1936 -)

A Quote by Louise Guiney on authors, blessings, and quotations

Quotations (such as have point and lack triteness) from the great old authors are an act of reverence on the part of the quoter, and a blessing to a public grown superficial and external.
