    My favorite is “With God all things are possible.” It has gotten through many crises including migraines. It is from Matthew 19:26.

    Sometimes quotes like these make me groan from their overuse, but there were some new ones in the list I could relate to – thank you. One of my more recent favorites is: People cry not because they are weak, but because they have had to be strong for too long.
