The Uncreative Mind Speaks

They Say

St. Thomas More

“If we try to escape sadness by seeking our consolation in sleep, we will fail to find what we are seeking, for we will lose in sleep the consolation we might have received from God if we had stayed awake and prayed.”


“Our story is about us; we are the architects of our destiny.”

“This is what love is about: the ability to sacrifice yourself for the sake of others.”


“Prayer is hard, because sometimes He’s silent and we feel abandoned or we feel unworthy. But one thing I keep in mind is that love is not a feeling. The measure of love is to love without expecting anything in return and to trust in His mercy.”

“Pray, hope, don’t worry.”

Psalm 31:1-10

1In you, O Lord, I seek refuge […] 2Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily. Be a rock or refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me. […] 5Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God. […] 7I will exult and rejoice in your steadfast love, because you have seen my affliction; you have taken heed of my adversities, 8and have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy […] 9Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress; my eye wastes away from grief, my soul and body also. 10For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength fails because of my misery, and my bones waste away.”

Patron Saint of the Falsely Accused: St. Dominic Savio
One time, two boys filled the school stove with snow and garbage during the cold winter months. When the teacher came back into the room, they falsely accused Dominic of doing the “dirty” deed. Although disciplined in front of the entire class, Dominic refused to tell on the two mischievous boys. When the truth was later revealed, Dominic was asked why he didn’t confess to his innocence. He remarked that he was imitating our Lord, Who remained silent during His persecutions and crucifixion.

Psalm 34:18

“The Lord is near to the broken-hearted, and saves the crushed spirit.”

Iroh, Avatar: The Last Airbender

“You must never give in to despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is what you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.”

“Follow your passion and life will reward you.”

Aslan, Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (movie)

“You doubt your value. Don’t run from who you are.”


“Big decisions sometimes require leaps of faith.”
