The following quotes are some of my favorites! Pondering them helps me as I do my frequent “heart exams.” I think they will help you as you do a heart exam, also. (See Chapter 11 for encouragement on checking your heart.)
So ask your soul to chill out, tune in, and then check out these interesting thoughts from some interesting thinkers.
“Anyone will be unhappy until he recognizes his true calling.”
“Be harsh with yourself at times.”
~ Seneca, Letters from a Stoic
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
~ Carl Jung
“Humility is to make a right estimate of oneself.”
~ Harry Truman
So, what do you think about those quotes? Which one hits you? Ask your soul to be honest… Are you happy? Are you humble? Those quotes might help you detect who is in the center of your thought closet.
