Highschool Inspiration

Morgan High School had some wonderful quotes all over the walls of the art room. I love motivational quotes because they remind me that it's never to late to create something. I figured I'd share them with you guys.

What I am seeking is not the real and the unreal but rather the unconscious, the mystery of the instinctive in the human race.
-Amedeo Modigliani

What I am after, above all, is expression.
-Henri Matisse

Learning never exhausts the mind.
-Leonardo Da Vinci

When I paint the sea roars! The others splash about in the bath.
-Salvador Dali

Insults are pouring down on me as thick as hail.
-Edward Manet

We never really know what stupidity is until we have experimented on ourselves.
-Paul Gaugin

Art is not made for anybody and is, at the same time for everybody.
-Piet Mondrain

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.
-Aristotle

Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.
-Auguste Rodin

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.
-Albert Einstein

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
-Helen Keller

Creativity takes courage.
-Henry Moore

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once one grows up.
-Pablo Picasso

The way to know life is to love many things.
-Vincent Van Gogh

I didn't become an impressionist. As long as I can remember I have always been one.
-Claude Monet

Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved. 
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nothing is more truly artistic than to love people.
-Vincent Van Gogh

These quotes helped me remember the importance of finding something to be passionate about in life. Having a passion gives us motivation, and that's the enthusiasm Ralph Waldo Emerson was talking about.

  1. YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN

    Jesus said you must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. What did He mean by that statement?

    John 3:1-3......3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly , I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."(NKJV)

    Jesus did not tell Nicodemus that he had to be born the first time in order to enter the kingdom of God. He said you must be born again!

    Jesus did not tell Nicodemus that he had to exist in order to enter the kingdom of God. Every person alive, exists, how could that be a requirement to enter the kingdom of God? Jesus said he had to be born again.

    Being born of water (amniotic fluid) by natural birth is being born the first time, it is not being born again.

    John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. (NKJV)

    Jesus said you must born of water and the Spirit to enter the kingdom of God. Remember in John 3:3 Jesus said "You must be born again." Water can mean nothing but water baptism (immersion). Water and the Spirit are both qualifications in order to be born again.

    John 3:5 Jesus answered: I tell you for certain that before you can get into God's kingdom, you must be born not only by water, but by the Spirit. (Contemporary English Version)

    John 3:5 Jesus answered: Amen, amen I say to thee, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition)

    John 3:5 Jesus said, 'I tell you the truth. This new birth is by water and by the Spirit. No person can enter God's kingdom if he has not been born that way. (Worldwide English New Testament)

    WATER BAPTISM IS A REQUIREMENT TO BE BORN AGAIN.

    (SEE: Acts 2:38, WATER BAPTISM AND THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT....YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! )
