Uplifting quotes...

on Wed Dec 14 2016, 18:22
First topic message reminder :

Uplifting quotes...by Dr Norman Vincent Peale.

I read his book when I arrived in Canada at 19 years old, "The Power of Positive Thinking". It is very profound if anyone wants to buy it on line. It certainly changed my life.

Anyhow, I have three and a half pages of his famous quotes in front of me and will post a new one everyday until they have been used up.

Please feel free to add your own uplifting quotes.



"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars"

Quote for 31st December. Happy New Year all....

“Stand up to an obstacle. Just stand up to it, that's all, and don't give way under it, and it will finally break. You will break it. Something has to break, and it won't be you, it will be the obstacle.”

Not a quote as such, more a story.

My dwarf girlfriend went to work angry with me this morning because I was taking the mickey out of her size.

I'm going to make it up to her tonight. I am away to buy a  good bottle of wine, and buy her the latest box set of her favourite show.

Am also going to order her favourite Indian takeaway for tea, then run upstairs and run her a nice, hot sink.

Quote for 6th January.

“The way to happiness: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.”

Quote for 9th January.

“Deep within the individual is a vast reservoir of untapped power awaiting to be used. no person can have the use of all this potential until he learns to know his or her own self. the trouble with many people is that they got through life thinking and writing themselves off as ordinary commonplace persons. having no proper belief in themselves they live aimless and erratic lives largely because they never realise what their lives really can be or what they can become”

This is the last of Dr Peale's quotes. You may find all of them at:
