MY FAVORITE QUOTES


I collect quotes. Witty sayings, inspirational thoughts, powerful ideasthat have inspired, motivated and instructed me over the years. When I comeacross such I write them down and file them. I have stacks of notebooks filledwith them over time. I meditate on them, and later find them useable in my‘career’ as a preacher and public speaker.
These quotes have blessed me. And they have informed, in-formed, and transformed me. They are among my favorites.I share these in the hope that they will do the same to you too. YOU WILLSUCCEED!
