Quotable Sunday

Toni over at A Daily Dose of Toni hosts Quotable Sunday each week, if you'd like to participate, head on over and link up!!

The quotes here at A Couch With A View this week are about acceptance. I did some reflecting this week about accepting people for who they are, as well as accepting myself for who I am.

"A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way that you are."

"Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them."
*Albert Einstein

"I wish they would only take me as I am."
*Vincent Van Gogh

"California sunlight, sweet Calcutta rain, Honolulu starbright, the song remains the same."
*Led Zeppelin

"Happiness can only exist in acceptance."
*Denis De Rougamont

"God grant me the serenity, to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time. Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace. Taking, as He did, this sinful world, as it is, not as I would have it. Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will. That I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with Him forever in the next."
