PAGE 1

JESUS CHRIST IS TRUE.
HIS WAY REQUIRES CHANGE IN US,
BUT IT IS WORTH IT.

WHEN WE COMFORT EACH
OTHER, WE MULTIPLY FAITH,
AND SUBTRACT SORROW.

HONEST FOLKS' FAILURES,
ARE MORE NOBLE THAN CHEATERS'
TAINTED SUCCESSES.

PAGE 2

EXPERIENCE THAT
WE USE THOUGHTFULLY, LEAVES LESS
SCARS, AND MORE WISDOM.

WISDOM, IS KNOWLEDGE
AFTER EXPERIENCE HAS
ADDED HEART AND SOUL.

WE SHOULD NEVER THINK
PATIENCE IS A LACK OF STRENGTH.
SELF-CONTROL IS STRENGTH.

PAGE 3

IT TAKES COURAGE TO
BE COMPASSIONATE, WE SHOULD
NEVER CALL IT WEAK.

FORETHOUGHT SHOULD INCLUDE
AFTERTHOUGHT POTENTIALS, TO
MAKE WISE DECISIONS.

IT IS NOT KNOWLEDGE
THAT IS EVIL; IT IS THE
WRONG USE OF KNOWLEDGE.

PAGE 4

WRONG USE OF KNOWLEDGE,
LIES IN MANIPULATION
OF OTHERS, FOR SELF.

RIGHT USE OF KNOWLEDGE,
IS TO UPLIFT, AND SUPPORT,
THE GOOD IN US ALL.

TO FEED THE BODY,
AND YET STARVE THE SOUL, IS TO
BUILD A SEPULCHER.

PAGE 5

EXTREMES BREED EXTREMES,
AND THE PENDULUM SWINGS, TO
FIND REST AT CENTER.

BALANCE BRINGS US TRUE
ASSIMILATION; PROGRESS
STARTS WITH IMBALANCE.

THIS WORLD IS A PART
OF REALITY THAT IS
UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

PAGE 6

CHANGE IS THE ONE THING
WE ALL LIVE WITH IN THIS WORLD.
CHANGE IS LIFE'S MOVEMENT.

WHO WARNS US ABOUT
THE BURDEN OF WEALTH ? AND STILL,
HOW MANY LISTEN ?

IT IS A GOOD THING,
WHEN WE DON'T JUST WANT GUIDANCE,
BUT KNOW WE NEED IT.

PAGE 7

GOD BLESSES EFFORTS:
BUT HE WON'T TELL ACORNS THEY'RE
OAKTREES ALREADY.

THE CHILD WHO'S LIED TO,
WILL LEARN TO LIE. AND LATER,
WHO WILL UNDERSTAND ?

"ANYTHING GOES" IS
FIRST STEP TO ANARCHY, WHERE
NO-ONE IS SECURE.

PAGE 8

IGNORANCE WILL SHOOT
ITSELF IN THE FOOT, WITH ITS
NIT-PICKING PROTESTS.

ALWAYS GOOD ADVICE:
LISTEN MORE, TALK LESS: LISTENERS
ARE ALWAYS WELCOME.

ONLY THOSE CONCEPTS
BASED IN DURABLE TRUTHS, WILL
MAKE LASTING CHANGES.

PAGE 9

FORERUNNERS THINK IN
WAYS BROADER THAN "ME-AND-MINE".
THAT CAN BE LONELY.

CONTROVERSY IS
A PART OF ANY LIFE LIVED
IN DEDICATION.

FOLKS WHO TAKE PAY FOR
PROMISES THEY DON'T HONOR,
WILL NOT GAIN HONOR.

PAGE 10

THE "OVERCOMING
LIFE" PRESUPPOSES SOMETHING
TO BE OVERCOME.

ARE YOU A BODY,
WITH SPIRIT, OR ARE YOU A
SPIRIT WITH BODY ?

ARTIFICIAL, AND
SUPERFICIAL, ARE NOT REAL
QUALITIES THAT LAST.

PAGE 11

FOLKS WHO WON'T ACCEPT
GREAT RESPONSIBILITY,
STILL NAG THOSE WHO DO.

THERE IS NO BETTER
CHRISTIAN, THAN THE TRUE, REFORMED
SINNERS, WHO KNOW WHY.

WE VOTE FOR OUR CHOICE
OF LIFESTYLE EVERYDAY IN
THE WORLD MARKETPLACE.

PAGE 12

TO CHANGE THE MARKET:
CHANGE OUR CHOICES, AND IN TIME,
THE MARKET WILL CHANGE.

FORGIVING WAYS LEAD
TO FREEDOM, AND RELEASE, BUT
GET-EVEN WAYS BIND.

HONEST MEMOIRS WILL
INCLUDE BOTH THE FAILURES, AND
SUCCESS OF A LIFE.
PAGE 13

MUCH ILLNESS BEGINS
SLOW AND SILENT, AND SO DOES,
THE HEALING PROGRESS.

FOLKS WHO DON'T RUN ON
EGO, CAN EASILY SEE
RIGHT THROUGH THOSE WHO DO.

INDIVIDUALS
ARE USUALLY TRYING TO
FIND OUT WHERE THEY FIT.

PAGE 14

SOME GOALS WILL NEVER
TAKE OFF, TILL THEY'RE HOOKED UP TO
A WORTHY PURPOSE.

GOALS THAT WILL ENDURE
THROUGHOUT TIME, ARE THOSE THAT WILL
SERVE A COMMON NEED.

THOUGH AN IDEA
IS POPULAR, THAT IS NOT A
GUARANTEE IT'S TRUE.

PAGE 15

ACCURACY SAVES
MORE TIME THAN SPEED; THERE ARE LESS
ERRORS TO CORRECT.

MUCH TECHNOLOGY
IS LIKE THE SCAFFOLDING FOR
A WORK IN PROGRESS.

WHEN THE MOTIVES ARE
SELF-GRATIFICATION, THE
CHARACTER WEAKENS.

PAGE 16

WHENEVER KNOWLEDGE
COMES WITHOUT CHARACTER, THE
RESULTS ARE PROBLEMS.

DEDICATION IS
A MORE DURABLE MOTIVE
THAN SELF AMBITION.

MANY WILL COME TO
DEDICATION, AFTER YEARS
AS AMBITITION'S SLAVE.

PAGE 17

WE CAN GROW "OLDER"
WITHOUT GROWING "OLD"; EITHER
WAY, WE SHOULD "GROW UP".

WE LEARN WHAT OUR OWN
PARENTS GAVE US, WHEN WE ARE
RAISING OUR CHILDREN.

WHAT HAS NOT BEEN EARNED,
IS TOO OFTEN NOT REALLY
APPRECIATED.

PAGE 18

GOD IS PATIENT WITH
OUR NEED TO LEARN BY OUR OWN
LIFE EXPERIENCE.

LIKE ALL PARENTS, GOD
WANTS US TO HEED HIS COUNSEL.
TO SPARE US TROUBLE.

WHEN WE GET LOST ON
WRONG PATHS, HIS SON HELPS US TO
FIND OUR WAY BACK HOME.

PAGE 19

SINCERITY WILL
ACCEPT DISCIPLINE, WHEN WE
KNOW THAT WE NEED IT.

THE SAME LIFE SHAPES THE
DOVE WITH TENDERNESS, THAT SHAPES
THE HORSE WITH POWER.

GREAT MISSIONS REQUIRE
GREAT COURAGE, AND GREAT PATIENCE,
TO SEE FRUITION.

PAGE 20

IF GOD DOESN'T CARE
ABOUT ANIMALS, WHY TELL
NOAH TO SAVE THEM ?

SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO
LET GO OF RELATIONSHIPS
THAT SCATTER PURPOSE.

WINDOWS OPEN ON
A VIEW, BUT A DOOR OPENS
ON EXPERIENCE.
