God bless the King! (I mean our faith's defender!)
God bless! (No harm in blessing) the Pretender.
But who Pretender is, and who is King,
God bless us all! That's quite another thing!

~ John Byrom ~ (born 29 February 1692)

You are now at a crossroads. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully. Then act upon it. ~ Anthony Robbins

To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others. ~ Anthony Robbins (born 29 February 1960)


I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret. ~ Anthony Robbins


Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human. ~ Anthony Robbins


Trouble is a part of your life, and if you don't share it, you don't give the person who loves you a chance to love you enough.

  • Dinah Shore (born 29 February 1916), As quoted in The Book of Quotes (1979) by Barbara Rowes

Strange! that such high dispute should be
'Twixt Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

~ John Byrom ~


The Church is indeed, in its real Intent,
An Assembly where Nothing but Friendship is meant;
And the utter Extinction of Foeship and Wrath
By the Working of Love in the Strength of its Faith.
This gives it its holy and catholic Name,
And truly confirms its apostolic Claim;
Showing what the One Saviour's One Mission had been:
"Go and teach all the World," — ev'ry Creature therein.

In the Praise ever due to the Gospel of Grace
Its Universality holds the first Place.

~ John Byrom ~


Endless Perfections after all conspire,
And to adore excite and to admire;
But to plain Minds the Plainest Pow'r Above
Is Native Goodness to attract our Love;
Centre of all Its various Pow'r and Skill
Is One Divine, Immutable Good Will.
~ John Byrom ~


"The Sabbath was made for Man; not Man for the Sabbath."

— St. Mark, ii. 27.
From this true Saying one may learn to draw
The real Nature of all outward Law.
In ev'ry Instance, rightly understood,
Its Ground and Reason is the human Good;
By all its Changes, since the World began,
Man was not made for Law, but Law for Man.
~ John Byrom ~

In the Praise ever due to the Gospel of Grace
Its Universality holds the first Place.
~ John Byrom ~


Religion's Meaning when I would recall,
Love is to me the plainest Word of all.
Plainest, — because that what I
love, or hate,
Shews me directly my internal State;
By its own Consciousness is best defin'd
Which way the
Heart within me stands inclin'd.

On what it lets its Inclination rest,
To that its real Worship is address'd;
Whatever Forms or Ceremonies spring
From Custom's Force,
there lies the real Thing;
Jew, Turk or Christian be the Lover's Name,
If same the Love, Religion is the same.
~ John Byrom ~
