Mary Elizabeth (Leach) Raines' Favorite Quotes and Inspirations
14 Favorite Quotes and Inspirational Sayings 

Compiled by Mary Elizabeth Raines

Breathe Deeply!

  "If the day and night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal--that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself."

"Thank God men can't chop down the clouds."

Henry David Thoreau

"All parts of the universe are interwoven with one another, and the bond is sacred. Nothing is unconnected with some other thing."

Marcus Aurelius, 121-179 A.D


"To eat good food is to be close to God."

Garrison Keillor

"That which seems most feeble and bewildered in you is the strongest and most determined. Is it not your breath that has erected and hardened the structure of your bones? And is it not a dream which none of you remember having dreamt, that builded your city and fashioned all there is in it? Could you but see the tides of that breath, you would cease to see all else."

Kahlil Gibran ("The Prophet")


"We lay on the ground and kissed. Perhaps you smile. That we only lay on the ground and kissed. You young people can lend your bodies now, play with them, give them as we could not. But remember that you have paid a price: that of a world rich in mystery and delicate emotion. It is not only species of animal that die out. But whole species of feelings. And if you are wise, you will never pity the past for what it did not know. But pity yourself for what it did."

John Fowles ("The Magus")

"Nothing I can do will make God love me more. Nothing I can do will make God love me less."



"It is very important that you only do what you love to do. You may be poor, you may go hungry, you may lose your car, you may have to move into a shabby place to live, but you will totally live. At the end of your days you will bless your life because you have done what you came here to do. Otherwise, you will live as a prostitute, you will do things only for a reason, to please other people, and you will never have lived."

Elizabeth Kübler-Ross

"Knowing God is not reserved for the great ones. It is for little folks like you and me."

Peace Pilgrim

"If the spirit's good, the tune don't matter."

Laughing Cherub

"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary.

Louisa May Alcott

"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time".

Jack London

"The misery of keeping a dog is his dying so soon. But, to be sure, if he lived for fifty years and then died, what would become of me?"

Sir Walter Scott

"It is a secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals and mournful obituaries, and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some new and strange disguise."

Ralph Waldo Emerson
