Nuggets of Wisdom – Spring 2022

Nuggets of Wisdom – Spring 2022 March 31, 2022

Every quarter I like to share quotes that I have encountered in my reading and research that have been meaningful to me. I call them “Nuggets of Wisdom.”


“The circumstances of life, the events of life, and the people around me in life do not make me the way I am but reveal the way I am.”


“The mathematical precision of the universe reveals the mathematical mind of God.”


“Though preoccupation with a God-given gift can turn into idolatry, enjoying the same gift with a grateful heart can draw us closer to God.”


“Depression is the inability to construct a future.”


“If arguments are lacking . . . throwing mud is a good substitute.”


“Think about what you are doing with your life right now, and ask yourself what these endeavors will be worth in 100 years. What things will truly hold their value in the centuries to come.”


“To truly grow and progress in this life means you are getting nearer to the place where you want to be. But in order for this to happen, you must have objectives for your life, otherwise you are going nowhere.”


“Failure is being a success in things that don’t ultimately matter.”


“We were designed to move towards objectives. If we are not moving towards an objective, we will drift through life.”


“There is no shortcut to any place worth going.”


“Patience is a competitive advantage. In a surprising number of fields, you can find success if you are willing to do the reasonable thing longer than most people.”
