Wilfred Peterson Motivational Quotations:

  • “Laughter is the best medicine for a long and happy life. He who laughs lasts!” “Read! Read something every day. Discipline yourself to a regular schedule of reading. In fifteen minutes a day you can read twenty books a year.”

  • “You visualize yourself as the person you want to be. You strive to make the ideal in your mind become a reality on the canvas of Time.”

  •  “You open doors when you open books... doors that swing wide to unlimited horizons of knowledge, wisdom, and inspiration that will enlarge the dimensions of your life.”​
  •  “Prayer is thinking and thanking. It is thinking of our many blessings and accepting them with a thankful spirit.”
  •  “Good will is a power that can be used every day of the year and every hour of the day. It is instantly available. By continuously practicing good will we cultivate a deep subconscious habit of good will. It becomes a pattern of our response in all situations. Good will works as silently as the sun and with as much power. It thaws the ice and snow of resistance and indifference. It warms and wins human hearts. It draws forth the best in others as flowers are drawn from the soil. It stimulates growth.”

  •  “You hold in your hand the camel's-hair brush of a painter of Life. You stand before the vast white canvas of Time. The paints are your thoughts, emotions and acts.”

 “He can talk to himself about his dreams, hopes and aspirations. He can convince himself that there is a place for him and an important work for him to do.”

Wilfred Peterson

  • “In my opinion we can never think of God in big enough terms. He is bigger than our biggest thoughts of Him. Our imaginations cannot stretch wide enough to take in all of God.”
  •  “Prayer works in the mind as a healing force. It calms the patient, enlightens the physician, guides the surgeon, and it often victoriously applies the power of the spirit when all seems lost. It proves, over and over again, the truth of Tennyson's words: "More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of." Prayer puts us on God's side. It aligns us with life's higher purposes, aims, and ideals. Prayer is dedicating our thought, feeling and action to the expression of goodness. It is to become like a window through which the light of God shines.”

  •  “Explore your mind, discover yourself, then give the best that is in you to your age and to your world. There are heroic possibilities waiting to be discovered in every person.”

  •  “I believe that to pray without ceasing means to think good thoughts without ceasing.”

  •  “Response is what we have trained ourselves to be; it is a reflection of our manhood, character, ideals. We cannot always control our surface reactions, but we can sit at the helm of our lives and control our responses to the blows of life.”

  •  “Decision is the spark that ignites action. Until a decision is made nothing happens.”

  •  “Take a look at those two open hands of yours. They are tools with which to serve, make friends, and reach out for the best in life. Open hands open the way to achievement put them to work today.” 

  • “As artist Nature splashes color across the vast canvas of the sky with the radiance and splendor of sunrise and sunset. She arches rainbows against the passing storm, creates flowers and foliage, sets autumn woods on fire with the beauty of turning leaves and touches mountaintops with snow crystals.”

  •  “Forgiveness works the miracle of change.”

  •  “Imagination helps you to recognize the reality of facts, but then to go beyond them, to penetrate beneath them, to rise above them in your search for creative answers to problems. Imagination "stirs up the gift of God in thee." Through your imagination you touch and express the inspiration of the Infinite. Imagination, in the words of Shakespeare, "gives to airy nothing a local habitation and a name." You reach into the heavens to grasp an idea, then you bring it down to earth and make it work.” “Believe! Believe in the limitless supply of God's goodness. The universe is filled with more wonders than you can imagine.”​

    Wilfred Peterson

  •  “Work miracles by setting a good example. Others will catch your spirit! The power of a good example is the greatest miracle-working power of all.”
  •  “The art of achievement is the art of making life - your life - a masterpiece.”

  •  “Decision is the spark that ignites action. Until a decision is made, nothing happens.... Decision is the courageous facing of issues, knowing that if they are not faced, problems will remain forever unanswered.”

  •  “Every forward step achieved by man has been due to the adventurous attitude. This attitude inspires dissatisfaction with the world as it is; it arouses the desire to change and improve things. The attitude of adventure is the flame that lights the fuse to explode new ideas.”

  •  “Cynics and critics wake us up. Kindness often covers up the truth and allows us to sleep on in our ignorance.”

  •  “The supreme art of living is to strive to live each day well.”

  •  “It is great to love life. Accept life as a precious gift from the hand of God and strive to make the most of it.”

  •  “In gratitude for God's gift of life to us we should share that gift with others. The art of giving encompasses many areas. It is an outgoing, overflowing way of life.”

  •  “It is time to browse through the precious books that have meant the most to you that you may rediscover illuminating phrases and sentences to light your pathway to the future.”

  •  “Sooner or later, a man if he is wise, discovers that life is a mixture of good days and bad, victory and defeat, give and take.”

  •  “Each moment of your life is a brush stroke in the painting of your growing career. There are the bold, sweeping strokes of one increasing, dynamic purpose. There are the lights and shadows that make your life deep and strong. There are the little touches that add the stamp of character and worth. The art of achievement is the art of making life-your life-a masterpiece.”

  •  “Love is the supreme good; it is the overflowing life, the giving of ourselves to noble ends and causes.”

  •  “Don't point your finger to the heights your children should go. Start climbing and they will follow.”

  •  “Friendship, awareness, happiness, all of the arts of the good life, are brilliant beads strung on the golden cord of love.”

  •  “Love is down to earth and it reaches to the highest star; it is the valey of humility and the mopuntaintop of ecstasy.”

  •  “Love is the dove of peace, the spirit of brotherhood, it is tenderness and compassion, forgiveness and tolerance.”

  •  “Love is the dynamic motivation behind every worthy purpose; it is the upward thrust that lifts men to the heights.”

  •  “It is in identifying yourself with the hopes, dreams, fears and longings of others that you may understand them and help them.”

  •  “The reason progress is slow is that we always expect other men to be the heroes and to live the heroic lives. But we all have hero stuff in us. In our sphere of life we can always live more heroically and triumphantly and grow in heroic stature.”

  •  “Success is ninety-nine percent mental attitude. It calls for love, joy, optimism, confidence, serenity, poise, faith, courage, cheerfulness, imagination, initiative, tolerance, honesty, humility, patience, and enthusiasm.”

  •  “He who hopes to avoid all failure and misfortune is trying to live in a fairyland; the wise man realistically accepts failures as a part of life and builds a philosophy to meet them and make the most of them. He lives on the principle of 'nothing attempted, nothing gained' and is resolved that if he fails he is going to fail while trying to succeed.”

  •  “Imagination inspires you to look at everything with fresh eyes, as though you had just come forth from a dark tunnel into the light of day. Imagination becomes for you a magic lamp with which to search the darkness of the unknown, that you may discover new goals or chart more productive paths to old goals.”

  •  “Believe! Project a mental picture of your goal in life. Believing is a creative force that brings the visible out of the invisible. You must believe to achieve.”

  •  “Imagination guides you in your contacts with individuals and crowds, so you can discover new concepts and approaches.”

  •  “The art of love is God at work through you.”

  •  “To have an open self is to provide a free channel for the infinite goodness of God. To have an open self is to keep yourself aware, alert and sensitive to the beauty and wonder of life. God's love will flow through you into the world when you are open. You enlarge the dimensions of your life when you keep yourself open to the highest and best. The key to God's infinite riches is within you; open yourself and you will receive.”

  •  “Imagination stimulates your thinking power by giving your mind abundant data with which to work. It opens the gate to dreams and fantasies so that you may become receptive, as a little child, in exploring the Kingdom of Ideas.”

  •  “The most wonderful inspirational chemistry we can use on another is the gift of our love and acceptance. Devoted and unquestioned love has a magic creative power. The consciousness of being loved is an uplifting, saving, healing force that causes one to go on when otherwise it would be impossible to do so. "Love," said Emerson, "is the affirmative of affirmatives."

  •  “Imagination is a flame that ignites the creative spirit. Imagination lights up your mind by stoking mental fires. It can be stimulated from the outside through the senses, or from the inside through the driving power of curiosity and discontent.”

  •  “When one has reverence for life, one will never do anything to harm, hinder, or destroy life. Instead one bends every effort to help life to fulfill its highest destiny. One strives to maintain, enhance, and assist life to make the most of itself.”

  •  “Tolerance is understanding. It is open to new light. Those who are tolerant are always eager to explore viewpoints other than their own.”

  •  “The art of humility begins with a recognition of our dependence on others and an appreciation of God's gift of life.”

  •  “Our challenge is to face up heroically to the world as it is and do our very best to make the most of our lives. To strive to live each day with serenity and courage.”

  •  “Love is the spiritual magnetism that draws men together, for the working of miracles.”

  •  “Success is relative and individual and personal. It is your answer to the problem of making your minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years add up to a great life.”

  •  “The best leaders are very often the best listeners. They have an open mind. They are not interested in having their own way but in finding the best way.”

  •  “Happiness does not depend upon a full pocketbook, but upon a mind full of rich thoughts and a heart full of rich emotions.”

  • "The word which God has written on the brow of every person," wrote Victor Hugo, "is Hope." As long as we have hope no situation is hopeless.”

  •  “Background for Humans”

  •  “Release your problem to God with a prayer that the answer will come in its own good time and place. Hold the attitude of faith and expectancy, knowing that God has all the answers, that His knowledge is limitless and can never be exhausted.”

  •  “I believe that God is a power underneath my life here on earth. His goodness undergirds me and uplifts me.”

  •  “He knows that as long as a man keeps his faith in God and in himself nothing can permanently defeat him.”

  •  “By the grace of God you are what you are; glory in your selfhood, accept yourself and go on from there.”

  •  “Prayer is dedicating our thought, feeling and action to the expression of goodness. It is to become like a window through which the light of God shines.”

  •  “As you help men to grow, as you work for peace, understanding and good will, your influence will merge, with the good influences of men of every age, into the eternal golden stream of God's goodness.”
