George Matthew Adams quotes

“Everyone knows that weeds eat out the life of the garden and of the productive fields. The gardener and farmer alike each has to keep the weeding process alive. It’s like that in the building and developing of character. No one knows our own faults and tendencies better than we do ourselves, so that it is up to each one of us to keep the weeds out, and to keep all growth vigorous and fruitful.”

George Matthew Adams

“He who does not get fun and enjoyment out of every day… needs to reorganize his life.”

“In this life we get only those things for which we hunt for which we strive and for which we are willing to sacrifice.”

“Note how good you feel after you have encouraged someone else. No other argument is necessary to suggest that one should never miss the opportunity to give encouragement.”

“There is no such thing as a “self-made” man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.”

George Matthew Adams

“We can accomplish almost anything within our ability if we but think that we can.”
