Three on Thursday – quotes

Well, we made it – 30 days of posting. It was great fun. Here are 3 quotes that I have scribbled in my journal this month.

“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.” – Gabriel García Márquez

“I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.” ― Bob Goff, Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World

“What you and I need is usually not a brand-new teaching. Brand-new truths are probably not truths. What we need are reminders about the greatness of the old truths. We need someone to say an old truth in a fresh way. Or sometimes, just to say it.” ― John Piper, The Dawning of Indestructible Joy: Daily Readings for Advent
