A little faith will bring your soul to heaven, but a lot of faith will bring heaven to your soul.
He who has faith has... an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well - even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly. ~B.C. Forbes
Faith is the bird that sings when the dawn is still dark.
Faith is spiritualized imagination.
~Henry Ward Beecher
Faith is like radar that sees through the fog.
~Corrie Ten Boom

Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.
There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
~Anthony J. D'Angelo
When you possess light within, you see it externally.
From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
His high endeavors are an inward light
That makes the path before him always bright.

Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.
The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
Life is a field of unlimited possibilites.
He who is plenteously provided for from within, needs but little from without.
~Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Not what we have But what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.
I would rather be able to appreciate things I can not have than to have things I am not able to appreciate.
Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.
Appreciation is fertilizer for the soul.

The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.
Calmness is the cradle of power.
Calmness is always Godlike
Happiness is a state of mind; happiness means calmness of mind...
Power is so characteristically calm, that calmness in itself has the aspect of strength.
There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy.

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some
All the blessings we enjoy are Divine deposits.
Every burden is a blessing.

A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all - he's walking on them.
~Leonard Louis Levinson
An optimist is the human personification of spring.
~Susan J. Bissonette
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.
Optimist: Person who travels on nothing from nowhere to happiness
