Joe Lo Truglio Quotes

"I grew up down in Florida, and in the Keys, theres this place called Sea Camp which was not unlike Space Camp, except you explored the sea. And so that kind of whetted my appetite for that. But then I ended up swimming in a lagoon full of Cassiopeia jellyfish, and that quickly quashed that desire to be a marine biologist."

Quotes About The Difficulties Of Life

"Our Lord does not promise to change life for us; He does not promise to remove difficulties and trials and problems and tribulations; He does not say that He is going to cut out all the thorns and leave the roses with their wonderful perfume.

But He assures us that we can so know Him that, whatever happens, we need never be frightened, we need never be alarmed." - Author: D. Martyn Lloyd Jones

Quotes About Putting Down Others

Quotes About Good Teaching

"Dying is only one thing to be sad over, Mitch. Living unhappily is Something else. So many of the people who came to visit me are unhappy..

And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesnt work, dont buy it. Create your own. Most people cant do it. Theyre more unhappy than me-even in my current condition. I may be dying, but I am surrounded by loving caring souls. How many people can say that?" - Author: Mitch Albom

Quotes About Ontwerp

"Er bestaat geen mogelijkheid om na te gaan welke beslissing beter is, want er is geen vergelijking. Wij maken alles zomaar voor het eerst en onvoorbereid mee, net als een acteur die voor de vuist een stuk speelt. Maar wat kan het leven waard zijn, als de eerste repetitie voor het leven al het leven zelf is? Het leven lijkt daarom altijd op een schets. Hoewel het woord schets evenmin juist is, want een schets is altijd een ontwerp voor iets, de voorbereiding voor een schilderij, terwijl de schets van ons leven een schets is voor niets, het ontwerp zonder een schilderij." - Author: Milan Kundera
