Tim's Quote File

Here's the link to my personal quotation file. It's not full of things I've written or said; it's full of quotes I've gathered from personal reading over many years. The file is over 60 pages long, and I'm sure I'll continue adding to it. You can view it, or download it and make it your own - for free.

When I need a shot of encouragement or clarity, reading a few entries gets me ready for another “run around the track.” I hope you will give this a try. If a quote triggers a question for you, feel free to contact me. 

Here are some examples from the file:
  • Birthdays need to be celebrated, because to celebrate a birthday means to say to someone: “Thank you for being you.” --Henri Nouwen
  • The Bible is not a script for a funeral service, but it is the record of God always bringing life where we expected to find death. Everywhere it is the story of resurrection. --Eugene Peterson
  • When we cannot get along with each other within our own marriages and families, we should not be surprised that countries do not get along with each other. --Ronald Rolheiser
  • We all have a right to our own opinions, but we don’t have a right to our own truth. –-Irwin Lutzer
  • All religions have record of man seeking God, but Christianity teaches that God is seeking man. --Paul Simpson
  • Be assured of this one thing. No one ever drifts into a life of full devotion. --John Ortberg
  • Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. --Tony Castle
  • Even in its ruined condition a human being is regarded by God as something immensely worth saving. Sin does not make it worthless, but only lost. --Dallas Willard
  • God never gives discernment in order that we may criticize, but that we may intercede. --Oswald Chambers

Enjoy the file and, in the process, let its wisdom encourage and enlighten you.
