    That’s good to know, Francis.

    I find it’s a good idea to write out some quotes and post them up around you…even in your house for your family to see. 🙂

    These Quotes couldn’t have come at a better time for me when I’m just battling being the victim of office politics which was shattering my belief and confidence in myself.

    After reading these I did say to myself that ‘No Treachery has ever had or will ever have the power to defy the magnanimity of self-belief…only belief(also read as Faith here) can conquer’.

    But your quotes have been the source of inspiration to me. Thanks a zillion.

    Thanks Aartee,
    I needed that comment today; you may not have planned it that way, but you’ve encouraged me quite a bit.

    I too have been going through crazy office politics and can’t stop thinking about it.

    Thanks again,

    I often have trouble with belief quotes mainly because their accuracy depends largely upon the object of ones trust. It is the object of our trust that determines the reliability of the outcome. No matter how much I believe my body to be aerodynamic and capable of flying like a bird without aid the likelihood of achieving that outcome against the laws of physics is zero. We can place our trust in our abilities alone and find some degree of success, but that success is greatly enhanced when we learn to trust the world around us and the God who created all things.
