Send me your favorite quotes during the week and it just might make it onto the Sunday night collection for the week!  MC

“If somebody writes a great poem, people don’t run around applauding the pencil, saying ‘Oh, what a great pencil’…I’m a pencil in God’s hands.”   ~Keith Green

From the movie “Act of Valor”  The stirring words of the great Native American leader Tecumseh are movingly read in this week’s release featuring active duty Navy Seals.

So live your life so the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a stranger if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself. Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools and robs them of their visions. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”

~Rabindranath Tagore

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”

-~Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. Hi Monty,
    I really love this quote…
    “We live very close together. So, our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them at least don’t hurt them.” – Dalai Lama
