Favorite Quotes II

I like good quotes surely you guys have some great ones. I Have recently been looking for quotes to provide inspiration in business and to no surprise have found the bible as a great resource. Here is my favorite right now, Luke 6:62

"Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."

If you have ever plowed a field you know once you start you have to focus on the furrow in front of you, if you look back to see whats behind you, you will get off track.

I'm sure it could mean many more things to others but that is my take.

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

Then there is my favorite Teddy Roosevelt Quote;

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." — Theodore Roosevelt



"so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
Wow, how strong is that!

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

And just because I was a Dale Sr. fan:

When he was young, I told Dale Jr. that hunting and racing are a lot alike. Holding that steering wheel and holding that rifle both mean you better be responsible.
Dale Earnhardt

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

That's a great scripture buckshot! That's why the Bible is such an awesome guide to our lives because even though you may have read it through 10 times, on the 11th you're going to find something you missed the first 10 times. Jesus spoke in parables for a reason! 1. to put things in a way that we could understand and 2. to make us THINK about what the true meaning of what He's trying to tell us!

James 1:2-8

there are tons of quotes that leap to mind but the first was "failure to prepare on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on my part" although for some reason i tend to make it my own.
