Quotes About God Is My Everything

"Life was charmed but without politics or religion. It was the life of children of the children of the pioneers -life after God- a life of earthly salvation on the edge of heaven. Perhaps this is the finest thing to which we may aspire, the life of peace, the blurring between dream life and real life - and yet I find myself speaking these words with a sense of doubt. I think there was a trade-off somewhere along the line. I think the price we paid for our golden life was an inability to fully believe in love; instead we gained an irony that scorched everything it touched. And I wonder if this irony is the price we paid for the loss of God." - Author: Douglas Coupland

Quotes About Letting Go Of Worry

"Letting go maybe hard, but its the best thing possible for you to do when you cant take anymore pain! Whether youre letting go of a person, a pet, or the past. No matter how hard it is to forget, to let go, you have to do it! Take that weight of your shoulders, kill that selected memory that hurts you and move on. No matter how hard it is to forget about that person, that pet, or that memory, in the long run it will be for the best! Why should you let go? You should let go because, you will be free from that pain it brings you, you will be free to move on from the past, you will be free from it all and not have to worry about the troubles it may have brought. It all starts with you! Make that change in your life that need to be done, because if you dont it will just be an anchor dragging you down, pulling you farther away from the shore in which your dreams, and your goals lie. Just let go of what you want to forget, let go of that you need to forget. It all starts with you!" - Author: Benjamin Ford Crouch
