A Quote by James Whitcomb Riley on dreams, divinity, forgiveness, friendship, god, home, hope, laughter, life, love, mercy, motherhood, soul, tenderness, and youth

Out of the hitherwhere into the yon- The land that the Lord's love rests upon, Where one may rely on the friends he meets, And the smiles that greet him along the streets, Where the mother that left you years ago Will lift the hands that were folded so, And put them about you, with all the love And tenderness you are dreaming of. Out of the hitherwhere into the yon- Where all the friends of your youth have gone- Where the old schoolmate who laughed with you Will laugh again as he used to do, Running to meet you, with such a face As lights like a moon the wondrous place Where God is living, and glad to live Since He is the Master and may forgive. Out of the hitherwhere into the yon- Stay the hopes we are leaning on- You, Divine, with Your merciful eyes Looking down from far-away skies, Smile upon us and reach and take Our worn souls Home for the old home's sake- Out of the hitherwhere into the yon.

A Quote by Hyman George Rickover on bureaucracy, forgiveness, and god

If you are going to sin, sin against God, not the bureaucracy. God will forgive you but the bureaucracy won't.

A Quote by Hugh W. Pinnock on brothers, children, forgiveness, heroism, home, justice, love, parenthood, problems, sister, and success

A successful home is based on the love and helpfulness of children just as it is based on loving parents handling their responsibilities. ... Be eager to forgive when problems arise at home. Help with your younger brothers and sisters when needed. You are their hero.

A Quote by Hugh B. Brown on affection, belief, confession, discovery, facts, fatherhood, fear, fighting, forgiveness, friendship, god, honesty, hope, life, meditation, pain, prayer, quiet, religion, repentance, soul, time, and understanding

In attempting to develop a life of prayer, one becomes conscious of the fact that he is two persons, and this is true of all of us. There is our outside self, the person who is seen and watched by others, who lives and speaks and acts in public, the person we reveal to others with varying degrees of frankness or affectation. And there is that other self - the inner self, which is ever partly hidden even from our closest friends, and which we, ourselves, but dimly apprehend. It is this self, our better self, that the Master sees and values. To him the door of this interior castle is always open. He sees the real person. He knows that the fiercest battles are fought in this 'Sector of the Soul,' and he whispers hope to all who have not surrendered there. . . . "It was this understanding of the inner man which caused him to advise us to go alone into our closets and close the door when we would commune with the Father. Man, when alone with God, knows there can be no pretense, or make believe. Here at least he is absolutely honest. 'We feel the thing-we- ought-to-be beating beneath the thing-we-are.' Realizing that he knows before we tell him, we lay bare our souls to God. It is the antiseptic washing of the wound which makes healing possible, and in religion this is called repentance, and forgiveness. It is a time when our souls are naked and perhaps ashamed, but, when no longer distracted by fear of discovery, we can really concentrate on prayer. Rich and radiant living is generated in the hour of quiet meditation, of self-examination, of confession of weaknesses and prayer for forgiveness. This searching of our own souls and admitting what we see, is sometimes painful, but its effects are healing and wholesome. Probing a wound is sometimes more beneficial than applying an ointment.

A Quote by Holly Metcalf on forgiveness, jesus, and miracles

Jesus is the only one who can bring us to forgiveness. He waits for us to turn our hearts over to him; then he performs the healing, changing, finishing miracles.

If, after I depart this vale, you ever remember me and have thought to please my ghost, forgive some sinner and wink your eye at some homely girl.

A Quote by Henry van Dyke on forgiveness, good, love, prayer, quiet, safety, thought, and worry

Ere thou sleepest, gently lay Every troubled thought away; Put off worry and distress As thou puttest off thy dress; Drop thy burden and thy care In the quiet arms of prayer. Lord thou knowest how I live, All I'VE DONE AMISS FORGIVE; ALL OF GOOD I'VE TRIED TO DO STRENGTHEN, bless and carry through; All I love in safety keep While in Thee I fall asleep.

Henry van Dyke (1852 - 1933)
