Five of my favourite quotes, by five of my favourite authors, to inspire you and encourage you to reach for greater things.
“Define yourself radically as one beloved by God. This is the true self. Every other identity is illusion.” Brennen Manning
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson
“Anyone who knows who God made them to be will never try to be someone else.” Bill Johnson
“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it but because by it I see everything else.” CS Lewis
“God wants to be loved for Himself but that is only a part. He also wants us to know that when we have Him we have everything” AW Tozer
