Lines I Like

Here is a collection of quotes and lines that grab my attention.

The joy of the small makes life large~
Faith is in the gaze of a soul~
Hurry always empties a soul~
Thanks is what builds trust~
Trust is the bridge from yesterday to tomorrow, built with planks of thanks~
Anything less than gratitude and trust is practical atheism~
All beauty is only is the glimpse of His face to which I bow down~
If God didn't withhold from us His very own Son, will God withhold anything we need?  

The above lines are found in the book A Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp (I find almost every line in this book a quote able to stand on its own!)

Roses can grow in slums just as weeds can grow around mansions~
Wait and see is no easier now than it was as a child~
Everybody need love. Everybody. Those who don't believe this frighten me a little~
The strength of a friendship is measured by the weight of the burden it is willing to bear~(if you want to test this just ask someone to help you move;)
We cannot enslave others without enslaving a part of ourselves~
Everyone has suffered more than you know~
People can become so blinded by their own perceived victim-hood that they make victims of everyone around them~
Some so fear the future that they suffocate the present. It's like committing suicide to avoid being murdured~
The only thing that hasn't changed in my life is the uncertainty of it all~
Sometimes we can only find ourselves by first losing ourselves~
You should always be careful of what you say in parting~
The above lines are from  A step of Faith, book #4 in The Walk Series by Richard Paul Evans
