Brainwashed Americans

““African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open-minded, not even considering a conservative point of view. I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it’s just brainwashing and people not being open-minded, pure and simple.””
~ Herman Cain

Faithfully Yours

I get the joy of rediscovering you
Oh girl, you stand by me
I’m forever yours,
faithfully.”

The Hard Curves of Life & Business

“For many people, the hard curves of life and business often seem like unwelcomed obstacles that stand in the path to their success. They can be seen as the deal-breakers, the brick walls that prevent growth and extinguish opportunity. I aim to look at them in a different light. We should learn to celebrate the hard curves, recognizing them for what they are—challenges that can make us better, more innovative, and stronger. This is the place where we can win the race.”

Ah, Old Age.

“Ah, Old Age. Fear. Negligence. Valueless. Deterioration. Invisible … words that seem to grip us when we think about being old.
What has happened to us? Not so long ago, elders were revered, not reviled. Gray hair and wrinkles were honored, not disrespected.”

Thinking: The Final Frontier

“Thinking is the final frontier of privacy we have left. Our technology has invaded every other idiom of communication we have with each other. … The only safe place where there are no drones, where there are no hackers is within the confines of my own mind.”

Bishop/Chief Pastor of The Potter’s House,

Positive or Negative, Words Control Our Lives

“Words dominate us. Whether positive or negative, words control our lives. This is why we must be extremely careful to guard our tongues, especially when bad thoughts come to mind. Thoughts that are never spoken or acted upon will die unborn. It’s not until we give a thought voice and act on it that Satan has an open door into our lives.”
~ Frederick K.C. Price
Apostle, Author, Founder – Crenshaw Christian Center (CCC), & Founder – Fellowship of International Christian Word of Faith Ministries (FICWFM)

When You Fall, You Can Get Back Up

“I know that being seen as a role model means taking responsibility for all my actions.
I am human, and of course, sometimes I make mistakes.
But, I promise that when I fall, I get back up.”
~ Jennifer Lynn Lopez
Actress, Author, Fashion Designer,
Dancer, Producer & Singer

Defeated Before You Do Anything

“Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it,
for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before
you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.”

~ Dr. Norman Vincent Peale,
Author & Minister

What’s In Your Spirit?

“What you put into your spirit, mind and life
is what will come out in the time of trouble.
Ask yourself, “Am I allowing negative input into my life?”
Replace anything negative with something positive.”
~ Lisa Osteen Comes,
Associate Pastor – Lakewood Church & Author

Happy Attitudes

“Watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind.
Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented and happy attitudes and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful.”

~ Dr. Norman Vincent Peale,
