So, yesterday I found myself looking up quotes from Andy Andrews. In that search, I stumbled upon the goodreads.com page which showcased about 42 of Mr. Andrews quotes.
I have to say it was an encouraging search. I’m in the midst of making several important decisions. I’ve found gleaning God’s wisdom for the scriptures helpful, along with a devo, AND the numerous sticky notes and slivers of paper I have been finding all over the place.
One such paper had quotes from the Andy Andrews audio book I listened to several weeks ago. Now you know why I was searching quotes. 🙂 But, since goodreads.com had 42 quotes, I started reading all of ’em. Check ’em out on the goodreads.com site. You don’t have to log in or anything to read them.
I posted two below – see ya next quote day! 🙂
[update: make that three quotes.]
…Indecision limits the Almighty and His ability to perform miracles in your life. He has put the vision in you — proceed. To wait, to wonder, to doubt, to be indecisive is to disobey God. -Andy Andrews, The Traveler’s Gift” (rest of quote in the comments).
“Remember, whatever you focus upon, increases…When you focus on the things you need, you’ll find those needs increasing. If you concentrate your thoughts on what you don’t have, you will soon be concentrating on other things that you had forgotten you don’t have-and feel worse! If you set your mind on loss, you are more likely to lose…But a grateful perspective brings happiness and abundance into a person’s life.” ― Andy Andrews, The Noticer: Sometimes, All a Person Needs Is a Little Perspective
“Despite popular belief to the contrary, there is absolutely no power in intention. The seagull may intend to fly away, may decide to do so, may talk with the other seagulls about how wonderful it is to fly, but until the seagull flaps his wings and takes to the air, he is still on the dock. There’s no difference between that gull and all the others. Likewise, there is no difference in the person who intends to do things differently and the one who never thinks about it in the first place. Have you ever considered how often we judge ourselves by our intentions while we judge others by their actions? Yet intention without action is an insult to those who expect the best from you.” ― Andy Andrews, The Noticer: Sometimes, All a Person Needs Is a Little Perspective
