Robert H. Schuller

One of the joys of my Sunday morning routine began about 10 years ago when Ann and I began to cook waffles and watch Hour of Power together before church. I have to admit that I began watching it just to check Schuller out for my younger sister. The joke was on me because this Schuller guy ... who I thought was way too liberal for me ... turned out to be a great encourager and model of compassion for my wife and me. Here are a few of his quotes:

Again and again, the impossible problem is solved when we see that the problem is only a tough decision waiting to be made.

Always look at what you have left. Never look at what you have lost.

Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.

As we grow as unique persons, we learn to respect the uniqueness of others.

Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing perfectly.

Failure doesn't mean you are a failure it just means you haven't succeeded yet.

For every mountain there is a miracle.

God's delays are not God's denials.

I'd rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.

If there exists no possibility of failure, then victory is meaningless.

Impossible situations can become possible miracles.

It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.

It takes guts to get out of the ruts.

Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.

Life is but a moment, death also is but another.

Most people who succeed in the face of seemingly impossible conditions are people who simply don't know how to quit.

Never bring the problem solving stage into the decision making stage. Otherwise, you surrender yourself to the problem rather than the solution.

Never underestimate your problem or your ability to deal with it.

Press on. Obstacles are seldom the same size tomorrow as they are today.

Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.

Spectacular achievement is always preceded by unspectacular preparation.

The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking.

The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it.

Today's accomplishments were yesterday's impossibilities.

Tough times never last, but tough people do.

Turn your scars into stars.

What appears to be the end of the road may simply be a bend in the road.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Winning starts with beginning.

Yes, you can be a dreamer and a doer too, if you will remove one word from your vocabulary: impossible.

You can often measure a person by the size of his dream.

You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
