Random Quotes

I'll take a break from Stepping Heavenward quotes and give you a pick at a few other words I've been pondering.
"The cure for anything is saltwater: sweat, tears, or the sea." -isak dinesen
Isn't that great?!  I love it.  Found that on Facebook. :)  As you can see from the next quote, I have been doing some reading on minimalism as I declutter.  Its such a good feeling to see clear, flat spaces  again, and to get rid of things I no longer need or even want.
"It's ironic but true: a minimalist lifestyle leads to a broader, more varied life." - The Minimalist Lifestyle
First signs of spring - bit of green on the trees along the creek

I don't remember where I found this one, but it was said by Micael Leunig.
"Love one another and you will be happy.  It's as simple and as difficult as that."
Jump into spring ;)
My own pastor, a couple of Sunday's ago was preaching on prayer and came up with this one, from Exodus 33:12-23.  Yes, it pretty much covers it all!
"Lord, help me to know You; help me to walk in Your presence; reveal to me Your glory."
First daffodils of the year
Over at the AO Forums, we completed reading Charlotte Mason's second volume, Parents and Children.  I have so many highlights and notes from this reading!  Here are a few of my favorites from chapter 25.
"...the Divine Spirit does not work with nouns of multitude, but with each single child." pg. 273
"...let her [the mother/teacher] never contemplate any kind of instruction for her child, except under the sense of the divine cooperation." -pg. 274
"...children must have books, giving books; the best are not too good for them; anything less than the best is not good enough; and if it be needful to exercise economy, let go everything that belongs to soft and luxurious living before letting go they duty of supplying the books, which are necessary for the constant stimulation of the child's intellectual life." -pg. 280


  1. Love these quotes, especially the "love one another" and the last CM one.

  2. What a great collection. I, too, love that one about salt water. Thanks for sharing them all :)
