    You will yet know the dignity of your high calling, and the love of God that passeth knowledge. He is not afraid of your presumptuous approach to Hm. It is you who are afraid to come near Him. He is not watching over His dignity. It is you who fear to be sent away as the disciples would have sent away the little children. It is you who think so much about your souls and are so afraid of losing your life, that you dare not draw near to the Life of life, lest it should consume you.

    Our God, we will trust Thee. Shall we not find Thee equal to our faith? One day, we shall laugh ourselves to scorn that we looked for so little from Thee; for Thy giving will not be limited by our hoping.

    ~ George Mac Donald

    When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unknown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly.

    ~ Patrick Overton

    Give me a stout heart to bear my own burdens. Give me a willing heart to bear the burdens of others. Give me a believing heart to cast all burdens upon Thee, O Lord.

    ~ John Baillie (1886-1960)

    I liked this one:

    "Our greatness rests solely on the fact that God in His incomprehensible goodness
    has bestowed His love upon us.
    God does not love us because we are so valuable;
    we are valuable because God loves us."

    - Helmut Thielicke

    Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

    ~ Abraham Lincoln
    Men can only be happy when they do not assume that the object of life is happiness.

    ~ George Orwell
    The happiest people I know are the ones who have learned how to hold everything loosely and have given the worrisome, stress-filled, fearful details of their lives into God's keeping.

    ~ Charles R. Swindoll

    Satan, the Hinderer, may build a barrier about us, but he can never roof us in, so that we cannot look up.

    God will either give you what you ask, or something far better.
