I love the T.D. Jakes quote. Do you know where he got his start from? He had his first church in Charlestton West Virginia.

 My Western History Professor on the transition of art between Middle Ages and Renissance.

"How do you know this is Jesus?" "Because of his hippy dippy hair do thats how!"  I tell you what - I remembered the rest of those lessons very well and how Medieval art was done in a vertical fashion to draw your eyes upward towards the heaven and all these other little symbolic things such as the halos to define a religious person, and how Renissance art changed perspective in SO many ways :)

The other quote that made an definite impact on my life...not sure who ever said it first, but it was the mantra the majority of my highschool class lived by:
Normal is over rated. Embrace your you-ness
We honestly, and proudly, lived by exactly how we were and no one was going to change that.

My religion consists of a humble admiration
of the illimitable superior spirit
who reveals himself in the slight details we are able
to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
- Albert Einstein

Rapine, avarice, expense. This is idolatry; and these we adore; plain living and high thinking are no more. - William Wordsworth

We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty. - Mother Teresa

In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years. - Abraham Lincoln

Plus, Emerson in my siggy below. But all of these people, have many wise quotes. 

Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air... Emerson
