Motivational Testing Quotes

May these quotes about Testing inspire and motivate you.

Which beliefs bring out the best in you?
Which beliefs hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?
Test your beliefs with as much objectivity
as you can bring to the subject.
Be willing to let go of those beliefs
that represent your parents' opinions,
or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Eternity:
I am drawn to the wild edge of the ocean of my being

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Spirit knows what is best in the long run -
best for each of us individually,
and best for humanity as a whole.

and experience physical and emotional suffering
in ourselves, our family, and our friends.

and ultimate wisdom to be the true test of faith.

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.
Fortunately, in most cases our own loving presence
is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Only a fool tests the depth of the water with both feet.
- African Proverb
