Here are my quotes for this week:
You cannot get ahead while you are getting even. ~Dick Armey
I live by pray for those you want to get even with, God can do much more for you than you can on your own, even if that getting even is him making you a better person! Getting even does not equal revenge it could be in the simple fact God makes you a better person that the one you want to get even with.
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Yep if we have to experience all the bad things to gain wisdom from it then that is not good, but to learn from reflection is the wisest choice of all.
Turn your wounds into wisdom. ~Oprah Winfrey
Getting hurt is not fun but it’s from that hurt that some of our wisdom comes from, in fact I make more wise choices now from past experiences because of the wisdom gained.
Patience is the companion of wisdom. ~Saint Augustine
How very true, wisdom is often accompained by patience and that is something to be very thankful for.
The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook. ~William James
Overlooking is not always easy but usually it is always for the best.
Wisdom is knowing what to do next; virtue is doing it. ~David Starr Jordan
How very true, what good is it to have wisdom if you aren’t going to put it to use
