From Others:@PlatoQuote: Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.
@JeffGoins: When you seek out criticism are you genuinely wanting to grow or are you just looking to confirm your insecurities?
@MarkMerrill: One of the best things you can do for your children is to love your wife.

@PaulTripp: There's a lot of failure in your track record, but your security isn't in your success, but in the successes that Jesus achieved for you.
@follymiscreant: A great part of wisdom is figuring out which people are best left ignored.
