It is so much less exhausting. You only have to forgive once. To resent, you have to do it all day, every day. You have to keep remembering all the bad things … I would have to make a list, a very, very long list and make sure I hated the people on it the right amount … No … we always have a choice. All of us.” (p. 323)
God will help you make the choices that guide you into His path for each stage and age of your life.
There are dreams that are meant to be shared and dreams to be kept hidden in our hearts. It’s sometimes difficult to know which is which.
Pass on it if you’re not passionate; for convictions create clear choices.
In the long-run, regrets consist less of bad choices and more of choices not made at all. Little do we realize, those were choices too.
Your destiny has not been decided by others, but by you. Fate determines our choices; but our choices determine fate. You will carry it out because you choose to.
You always have a choice. Destiny deals you your hand and what you do with the cards is up to you
What you choose today will determine who you are tomorrow.
It’s only out of reach when you choose to keep your feet flat on the floor.

If you spend your whole life pretending to be good, then you are indistinguishable from a good person. Relentless hypocrisy eventually becomes the truth.
