F. Schumacher)

“Your Soul is Oftentimes a Battlefield”


“This is the beginning of a new day.

God has given me this day to use as I will.

I can waste it or use it for good, but what I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it.

I want it to be gain and not loss; good and not evil; success and not failure; in order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it.”   (Unknown Author)



“Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgment wage war against your passion and your appetite.”   (Kahlil Gibran)



“Essentially there are two actions in life:  Performance and Excuses.

Make a decision as to which you will accept from yourself.”   (Stephen Brown)



“What is in one is in the whole, and therefore, ultimately, each soul is responsible for the whole world.”   (‘Thoughts from the Seat of Soul’, Gary Zukav)



“We are what we believe we are.”   (C.S. Lewis)
