More Good Quotes

Can you tell I'm a quote lover? There's something about a good quote that speaks to me like nothing else (but Scripture) can. Do you agree? Here are some favorites I've come across lately:

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy, for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another." - Anatole France

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"If you're going through a time of discouragement, there is a time of great personal growth ahead." -Oswald Chambers

"Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world"
-Gustave Flaubert

"As Christians, we're called to convert our loneliness into solitude. We are called to experience our aloneness not as a wound, but as a gift - as God's gift, so that in our aloneness we might discover how deeply we're loved by God." - Henri Nouwen

"How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives."
-Annie Dillard

Mmmmm. Mmmmm. Mmmmm. Chew on those yummy words for a while.
