    .....O LORD my God, in You I put my trust. Psalm 7:1
    .....To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
    Psalm 25:1

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

    The best portion of a person’s life -- are the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love. ~ William Wordsworth

                Not sure this qualifies for "Favorite Quotations, but there is one from the OT concerning King Saul that stood out to me when I was kid, it was a from a message that I hear an evangelist used in his message, "This Night."

                His text...

                But God said to him, "Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?" Luke 12:20

                The quote from his message...
                Then Saul said, "I have sinned...Indeed I have played the fool and erred exceedingly." 1 Samuel 26:21

                Followed by this closing verse...
                And He said to them, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!" Mark 4:9

                  never despair
                  but if you do
                  work on in despair

                        “The Bible is best understood as the effort of inspired writers to bear witness to God’s acts in history as best they understood them at the time. The simple fact is that we may better understand God’s will today than did the ancients before us. Is that surprising? We know more about science, medicine, and music. Why not more about God?”

                          The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.

                          For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

                          Ephesians 5

                          11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret

                              People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.

                                "Hope itself is like a star- not to be seen in the sunshine of prosperity, and only to be discovered in the night of adversity." ~ C.H. Spurgeon

                                "The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.” ~ J.S. Bach
                                "I will guard my ways That I may not sin with my tongue; I will guard my mouth as with a muzzle While the wicked are in my presence." I was mute and silent, I refrained even from good, And my sorrow grew worse. My heart was hot within me, While I was musing the fire burned; Then I spoke with my tongue:"LORD, make me to know my end And what is the extent of my days; Let me know how transient I am. NASB
