It starts so young, and I'm angry about that. The garbage we're taught. About love, about what's romantic. Look at so many of the so-called romantic figures in books and movies. Do we ever stop and think how many of them would cause serious and drastic unhappiness after The End? Why are sick and dangerous personality types so often shown a passionate and tragic and something to be longed for when those are the very ones you should run for your life from? Think about it. Heathcliff. Romeo. Don Juan. Jay Gatsby. Rochester. Mr. Darcy. From the rigid control freak in The Sound of Music to all the bad boys some woman goes running to the airport to catch in the last minute of every romantic comedy. She should let him leave. Your time is so valuable, and look at these guys--depressive and moody and violent and immature and self-centered. And what about the big daddy of them all, Prince Charming? What was his secret life? We dont know anything about him, other then he looks good and comes to the rescue.
I have so much in me, and the feeling for her absorbs it all; I have so much, and without her it all comes to nothing.
It is not that we have so little time but that we lose so much. ... The life we receive is not short but we make it so, we are not ill provided but use what we have wastefully.
And now, for something completely the same:Wasted time and wasted breath,'s what I'll make, until my death.Helping people 'd be as good,but I wouldn't, if I could.For the few that help deserve,have no need, or not the nerve,help from strangers to accept,plus from mine a few have wept.Wept from joy, or from despair,or just from my vengeful stare.Ways I have, to look at stupid,make them see I am not Cupid.Make them see they are in error,for of truth I am a bearer.Most decide I'm just a bear,mauling at them, - like I care.
Another distraction that deviates people from their God given purpose and calling is the distraction of job and formal education.
Solitude with God is a place for pregnancy. Solitude is also a place to receive great ideas and creative ideas from God. The power of imagination is strongest in the place of solitude.
It is a great thing to be able to make God your source and the time of solitude presents you with that opportunity.
There is no beauty in sadness. No honor in suffering. No growth in fear. No relief in hate. It’s just a waste of perfectly good happiness.
Without solitude, we are overwhelmed by all the things we hope to do and all of the things we hope to do and all of the things we are planning and praying to do but we never really have the time to actually get down and get these things done.
If you were called to gallop like the horse, never end up hopping like the frog. Rise up for greatness.
Life sometimes reminds us that it is sometimes heartless by giving something or someone we really need to someone who does not need or even want them or it.
This ignorance of what to do with time is the number one reason why people get bored so easily when alone with nothing to do.
Most people have not become better than they were five years ago because people hardly invest time into improving their knowledge, skills, and talents.
You must arrest every passing time and convert it into growing your knowledge and prowess in that chosen field of influence.
Our world is filled with people who have only a shallow knowledge of certain skills and have remained like that for so many years without self-improvement
The difference between one person who is living in poverty and another person living in wealth is their understanding of what to do with time.
The reason why one man is great and another man is living in mediocrity is simply because one understood the value of time while the other did not.
The secret of all greatness is in knowing what to do with time. The secret of all the great men and women in history is that they converted their time into tangible products.
