A Quote by Rudyard Kipling on age, colors, earth, faith, fame, god, good, happiness, joy, lies, money, needs, praise, rest, saints, separation, and work

When earth's last picture is painted, and the tubes are twisted and dried, When the oldest colors have faded, and the youngest critic has died, We shall rest, and, faith, we shall need it-lie down for an eon or two, Till the Master of All Good Workmen shall set us to work anew! And those that were good shall be happy: they shall sit in a golden chair; They shall splash at a ten-league canvas with brushes of comets' hair; They shall find real saints to draw from-Magdalene, Peter, and Paul; They shall work for an age at a sitting and never be tired at all! And only the Master shall praise us, and only the Master shall blame; And no one shall work for money, and no one shall work for fame; But each for the joy of working, and each, in his separate star Shall draw the Thing as he sees It for the God of Things as They Are! -Rudyard Kipling

A Quote by Roy Campanella on achievement, god, happiness, health, learning, life, men, needs, poverty, power, praise, strength, and weakness

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve. I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health, that I might do great things. I was given infirmity, that I might do better things. I asked for riches, that I might be happy. I was given poverty, that I might be wise. I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men. I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God. I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life. I was given life, that I might enjoy all things. . . . I got nothing I asked for - but everything I hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among men, most richly blessed!

A Quote by Robert Scheid on circumstances, death, doubt, eternity, fear, giving, happiness, hope, learning, life, limitations, logic, love, obstacles, praise, reason, struggle, trust, universe, and world

Life . . . is a joyful expression of love, praise and thanksgiving instead of a hopeless struggle which eventually ends in death. Giving thanks in every circumstance, we forego the logic and reason which asks, "Why me?" and open our hearts and learn to trust. Every obstacle becomes an occasion for rejoicing. We put love at the center of our universe and we are lifted beyond the world of limitation, doubt, and fear into the realm of love, hope, and eternal happiness.

A Quote by Robert Scheid on earth, gratitude, laws, love, praise, soul, and universe

The law of gratitude is universal. It is a natural function of the soul. All things upon this earth or in the universe operate and respond to love and praise.

A Quote by Robert Lee Frost on certainty and praise

It asks a little of us here. It asks of us a certain height, So when at times the mob is swayed To carry praise or blame too far, We may take something like a star To stay our minds on and be staid.
