As an aspiring blogger and author, I sometimes feel like giving up because my progress is slower than I expected. For this reason, I use self-help material to help me keep moving.

From the self-help stuff, I always note down quotes that encourage me to stay positive and believe that I will achieve my dreams.

Here are 17 of them. Hope they will motivate you

  1. ‘I have often said a man’s character is not judged after he celebrates victory but by what he does when his back is against the wall.

Top 25 Insightful Verses From the Book of Sirach

Several Christians believe The Book of Sirach – considered a ‘wisdom book’ – was excluded from the Bible because it was not divinely inspired. However, many historians believe it was excluded for political reasons.

I always believe wisdom is found in the books that the early church and government didn’t want the masses to access.  For this reason, I read the book of Sirach despite the controversies surrounding it.

Here are the most insightful verses from it:

Sirach:

1: 1 – ‘All wisdom comes from the Lord, and with him, it remains forever.’

2:2 – ‘Be sincere and steadfast, undisturbed in times of adversity.’

2: 4 – ‘Accept whatever befalls you, in crushing misfortune be present.’

3: 10 – ‘He who does kindness is remembered afterward; when he falls, he finds support.’

5: 13 – 14 – ‘Be swift to hear, but slow to answer. If you have the knowledge, answer your neighbor; if not, put your hand over your mouth.’

6: 14 – 15 – ‘A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter; he who finds one finds a treasure. A faithful friend is beyond price; no sum can balance his worth.’

7: 32 – ‘To the poor man also extend your hand, that your blessing may be complete.’

10: 6 – ‘No matter what the wrong, do no violence to your neighbor, and do not walk the path of arrogance.’

11: 1 – ‘The poor man’s wisdom lifts his head high and sets him among princes.’

11: 17 – ‘The Lord’s gift remains with the just; his favor brings continued success.’

11: 21 – ‘Trust in the Lord and wait for his light; for it is easy with the LORD suddenly, in an instant, to make a poor man rich.’

12: 1 – ‘If you do good, know for whom you are doing it, and your kindness will have its effect.’

14: 20 -‘Happy is the man who meditates on wisdom, and reflects on knowledge.’

19: 1 – ‘He who wastes the little he has will be stripped bare.’

20:8 – ‘Some misfortunes bring success; some things gained are a man’s loss.’

22: 7 – ‘Teaching a fool is like gluing a broken pot, or like disturbing a man in the depths of sleep.’

22: 23 – ‘Make fast friends with a man while he is poor, thus will you enjoy his prosperity with him. In time of trouble remain true to him, so as to share in his inheritance when it comes.’

23: 20 – ‘He who knows all things before they exist still knows them after they are made.’

27: 12 – ‘Limit the time you spend among fools, but frequent the company of thoughtful men.’

28: 13 – ‘Cursed be gossips and the double-tongued, for they destroy the peace of many.’

30: 16 – ‘No treasure greater than a healthy body, no happiness than a joyful heart.’

30: 24 – ‘Envy and anger shorten one’s life, worry brings on premature old age.’

31: 22 – ‘In whatever you do be moderate, and no sickness will befall you.’

33: 7 – ‘Why is one day more important than another, when it is the sun that lights up every day.’

37: 15 – ‘Most important of all, pray to God to set your feet in the path of truth.’
