A Quote by Eli Stanley Jones on atheism, belief, brevity, confidence, eternity, faith, god, good, needs, possibility, soul, women, and words

Very often when I haven't faith in my faith, I have to have faith in His faith. He makes me believe in myself and my possibilities, when I simply can't. I have to rise to His faith in me. A woman who was inwardly collapsed said to me, "Well, I have no faith of my own, but I do have faith in your faith." "Good," I replied, "take faith in my faith as a first step, and then you will go on to something infinitely better-faith in His faith." With faith in His faith you can do anything- anything that ought to be done. There is a passage which touches your need. "For the Eternal . . . will not let you go." Faith is not merely your holding on to God; it is God holding on to you. He will not let you go! As Walt Whitman puts it, "Not until the sun refuses to shine, do I refuse you." Then keep saying to your soul, "In quietness and in confidence shall be your faith." (Isaiah 30:15). Then repeat to your soul these words: "To say what ought to be cannot be is a brief and complete statement of atheism." It is. Say to yourself, "What ought to be can be, and I will make it so." And you will. And will go beyond yourself.

A Quote by Charles Edwin Markham on day, dreams, earth, eternity, heaven, immortality, men, needs, paradise, time, and path

Earth Is Enough. We men of Earth have here the stuff Of Paradise - we have enough! We need no other stones to build The Temple of the Unfulfilled - No other ivory for the doors - No other marble for the floors - No other cedar for the beam And dome of man's immortal dream. Here on the paths of every-day - Here on the common human way Is all the stuff the gods would take To build a Heaven, to mold and make New Edens. Ours is the stuff sublime To build Eternity in time!

A Quote by Charles Edwin Markham on beginning, eternity, friendship, goals, god, idleness, life, play, rest, soul, time, winning, work, and world

Yes, take a little time to play And look at life the other way. God rested when the world was made: Rest now, old friend; be not afraid. But think not that your work is over, That you are now a foot-free rover, A rambler upon idle ways, Whittling away the golden days. For in the road climb to the goal There's no long furlough for a soul. There's no long pause: on every height Another summit swims in sight. The long road rises, scene by scene, With little restings in between. And so I say that every end Is only an unexpected bend In eternal road we go To peaks above from peaks below. The yesterdays are shells we shed: The best is always on ahead. There's always some new world for winning; And every end is a new beginning!

A Quote by Edward O. Sisson on character, cooperation, desires, direction, education, eternity, experience, harmony, impulses, individuality, life, principles, progress, purpose, soul, and strength

NATIVE vigor of impulses and desires conserved by education and experience, the establishment of inner harmony and cooperation among the powers and capacities of the soul, the formation of a life purpose, and the direction of the individual life in accordance with the eternal principles of right that underlie human progress, - these are the elements of both strength and righteousness in human character.

A Quote by Edward Everett Hale on america, children, country, eternity, generations, glory, good, gratitude, humility, life, love, memory, nobility, peace, simplicity, and work

No gilded dome swells from the lowly roof to catch the morning or evening beam; but the love and gratitude of united America settle upon it in one eternal sunshine. From beneath that humble roof went forth the intrepid and unselfish warrior, the magistrate who knew no glory but his country's good; to that he returned, happiest when his work was done. There he lived in noble simplicity, there he died in glory and peace. While it stands, the latest generations of the grateful children of America will make this pilgrimage to it as to a shrine; and when it shall fall, if fall it must, the memory and the name of Washington shall shed an eternal glory on the spot.

A Quote by Edmund Waller on darkness, eternity, home, men, soul, time, and weakness

The soul's dark cottage, batter'd and decay'd, Lets in new light through chinks that Time has made. Stronger by weakness, wiser men become As they draw near to their eternal home: Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view That stand upon the threshold of the new.

A Quote by Edgar Allan Poe on day, dreams, eternity, and vision

They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. In their grey visions they obtain glimpses of eternity.

A Quote by E. Clowes Chorley, DD on body, christ, discipline, drinking, eternity, health, life, mind, and vision

Surely, life is more than eating and drinking, more than buying and selling, more than getting and spending, more than the cultivation of the mind and a healthy body. It is the widening of our horizon, the broadening of our vision, the reaching out to eternal realities, the discipline of self until we can truly say, "I live, yet not I but Christ liveth in me."
