John 15:4-5

"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,
unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me...
He who abides in Me bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."


If my life is fruitless,
it doesn't matter who praises me;
and if my life is fruitful,
it doesn't matter who criticizes me.
-John Bunyan

Hey ya'll! It is fun to hear from you!

To answer your question, Kris -- the quotes I post are often ones I've found while reading books. And no, I don't spend all my time reading, :D but I greatly enjoy it when I have the time. I've started a quote book where I copy down all the quotes I read that have made an impact on my life, and many of those quotes make it to my blog. What deep treasures there are from the lives of men and women through history!
