Final Thoughts

Ok... so this might at first sound a little 'Jerry Springer'. But don't worry, I won't be getting Jesus to come out in a nappy.

During the 2010 Summer Camp in Kandersteg, we went on what is called the Light Trail. It was made up of a number of different points where a member of staff would give them a thought or idea for them to think over. To my surprise and joy the sprogs took it seriously and really thought about the quotes. Some went right over their heads, but we could tell that at least something sunk in.

So when we returned we decided that this would make a pleasant change to the prayer that we normally end with. It also gets round the fact that one or two of the sprogs is rather against organised religion and the fact that the prayer normally ends up being the lords prayer... raced through at great speed by one of the sprogs.

Seeing that I'll be looking up all these phrases, I may aswell share them with you all- so that if you like the idea then you can copy it.

  • Be who you are and say what you feel, because those that mind don't matter and those that matter don't mind.
  • Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened.
  • People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
  • Try to leave this World a little better than you found it.
  • Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever.
  • The fish trap exists because of the fish, once you've got the fish you can forget the trap. The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit, once you've gotten the rabbit you can forget the snare. Words exist because of the meaning, once you've gotten the meaning you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can talk with him?
  • Say what you mean and mean what you say.
  • Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
  • If you can't feed 100 people, then feed just one.
  • Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.
  • Don't just count your years, make your years count.
  • Prove something, if only to yourself.
  • Invest in your future, you'll be spending the rest of your life in it.
  • Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk infront of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
  • You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

I'll keep adding more as I find them
