Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
--W. T. PurkiserThank

Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends.
--Courtland Milloy

You say, 'If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.' You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.
--Charles Haddon Spurgeon

God every day when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know.
--Basil Carpenter

True thanksgiving means that we need to thank God for what He has done for us, and not to tell Him what we have done for Him.
--George R. Hendrick

Now thank we all our God, With hearts and hands and voices;
Who wondrous things hath done, In whom this world rejoices.
Who, from our mother's arms, Hath led us on our way,
With countless gifts of love, And still is ours today.
--Martin Rinkart

We will speed the day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing... Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I'm free at last.
--Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is 'thank you', that would suffice.
--Meister Eckhart

Quem pode resistir a um convite destes????????

"Amiga, neste Dia Internacional do Mar, não o podia deixar passar sem te deixar aqui uma pequena mensagem, pois sei o quanto gostas do Mar; podes usar fotos que te enviei, pois a Beleza do Mar fala-nos da presença de Deus no meio de nós, especialmente a mim, filha de Marinheiro-Pescador.
Contigo/convosco no coração...sempre,"

"Vossos filhos não são vossos filhos,
são os filhos e as filhas da ânsia da vida por si mesma.
Vêm através de vós, mas não de vós.
E embora vivam convosco, não vos pertencem.
Podeis outorgar-lhes vosso amor,
mas não vossos pensamentos.
Porque eles têm seus próprios pensamentos.
Podeis abrigar seus corpos, mas não suas almas;
Pois suas almas moram na mansão do amanhã,
que vós não podeis visitar nem mesmo em sonho.
Podeis esforçar-vos por ser como eles,
mas não podem fazê-los como vós,
Porque a vida não anda para trás
e não se demora com os dias passados.
Vós sois os arcos dos quais vossos filhos
são arremessados como flechas vivas.
O Arqueiro mira o alvo na senda do infinito
e vos estica com toda a sua força
para que suas flechas se projetem rápido e para longe.
Que vosso encurvamento na mão do Arqueiro seja vossa alegria;
Pois assim como Ele ama a flecha que voa,
ama também o arco que permanece estável."
--Kahlil Gibran

Theodore Roosevelt (1858 – 1919)

“Great thoughts speak only to the thoughtful mind, but great actions speak to all mankind.”

“In a moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing".

Ronald Reagan (1911 – 2004)

“America is too great for small dreams.”

“We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we will always be free.”

John F. Kennedy (1917 – 1963)

“We stand for freedom. That is our conviction for ourselves; that is our only commitment to others.”

“Liberty without learning is always in peril; learning without liberty is always in vain.”

Franklin Roosevelt (1882 – 1945)

“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.”

“We and all others who believe in freedom as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.”

Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865)

“Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.”

“The probability that we may fall in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.”

Andrew Jackson (1767 – 1845)

“One man with courage makes a majority.”

“Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.”

Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826)

“The boisterous sea of liberty is never without a wave.”

“We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

George Washington (1732 – 1799)

"Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence."

"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."

Thomas Jefferson (1802)

'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered".
