Book of Mottoes

Ongoing list of quotes and mottoes:

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” – William Butler Yeats

“Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.” – This one I’ve loved since hearing Optimus Prime say it in Transformers.  After researching, because I was sure a former president or some great leader must have said it first, I found out that Obi-wan said it to Aniken in Star Wars.  If you know more, please share.

“Do small things with great love.” – Mother Teresa

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.” – Ephesians 6:1 (KJV)

“Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm” – Abraham Lincoln

“It is not strange . . . to mistake change for progress.” – Millard Fillmore

“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?” – Abraham Lincoln

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” – Franklin Delano Roosevelt

“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” – C.S. Lewis

“But courage, child: we are all between the paws of the true Aslan.” – C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle

“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” – Matthew 7:12 (ESV)
