Affirmations

Postby ayeaiii » Sat Sep 23, 2006 1:18 pm

Hello!
Do you have any favourite, affimative quotes that help to cheer you up? I just thought I will share some of my favourites that come to mind right now!
*NOTE* Some of these are biblical, but I wish this not to be exclusively for Christians, I hope that they are comforting, perhaps, for other people too. Quotes from all places welcome, should you like to add!!
(hope this is not inappropriate, but I understand if it is and has to go)

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.
-Douglas Pagels

Happiness is not a goal itself, but I by-product of meaningful activity
–Once told to me by a wise lady who told me about Logotherapy

Remember He said that He will never leave us and never forsake us.
-From Psalms 91

The antidote for fifty enemies is one friend.
-Aristotle

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.
-Psalms 34:18-19

The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to be loved, and love in return
– Nat King Cole

Ok, some good ones there. I like these ones:

"Success is to be measured not so much as by the position one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome."
- Booker T Washington.

"Happiness isn't something you experience; Its something you remember"
- Oscar Levant

"people often find it easier to be a result of the past, than the cause of the future"
- unknown. (i like this one as it reminds me of how i used to be, stuck in the past, now though im movin into the future)

Hope you liked them, there are some mre but i cant quite find where i put them.
Somebody loves you.
Somebody admires your strength.

"Whenever someone sorrows, I do not say, "forget it," or "it will pass," or "it could be worse" -- all of which deny the integrity of the painful experience. But I say, to the contrary, "It is worse than you may allow yourself to think. Delve into the depth. Stay with the feeling. Think of it as a precious source of knowledge and guidance. Then and only then will you be ready to face it and be transformed in the process."
--Peter Koestenbaum
Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you and I wish on a star that somewhere you are thinking of me too...
So I wait for the day and the courage to say how much I love you

Three of my favourites are:

Good friends are like the sun, moon or stars - you cant always see them but you know they are there.

"Never be trapped in a relationship. You can go up the assistance board (todays social security offices) anytime, they'll give you the money"
- my great grandmother, whose quote still has a thin grain of reality today, and always makes me smile!

Lifes darkest hour is always just before day break

I'm wasted on building sites, i should be writting those sloppy cards that sell for a fortune in clinton cards!!!
whatever your problem someone else has been there and bears the scars.

You certainly should, retrochav! I love them all, all of you!
I love the one of the darkest hour before dawn!

Love is patient, love is kind,
Love does not insist on its own way.
Love bears all things, believes all things,
Hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.

- I Corinthians 13:4-8
