Entrepreneur Business woman of the year (1988)

“Our achievements are the things we have accomplished – our fruitfulness is the positive long-term effects of these achievements on others” - H Nouwen

On my 12th birthday I received a special present. A small autograph book in which my friends wished me well while others wrote quotes that inspired me. That was the beginning of a lifelong collection of inspirational thoughts. After many years of reading books and thousands of quotes and stories. I gathered only those that touched my life. The wisdom of masters withstood the test of time. It’s true and universally applicable.

From my collection then, I want to share with you, to apply, teach and inspire others.

“If you have grown because of someone, help someone grow because of you” - Orina

Most of the quotes mentioned are by well-known authors. Therefore, not my own. Through this gesture I would like to give them the recognition which they deserve.

If you need inspiration on any specific topic, feel free to contact me.

With love, Koekie

When the outlook is bad, Try looking up. Stop every day and look at the size of God. We are God’s creation. Somewhere, in the back of your mind, try to remember that everything has God’s fingerprints on it. The fact that we can’t see the beauty in something doesn’t suggest that it’s not there. Rather, it suggests that we are not looking carefully enough or with a broad enough perspective to see it. Richard Carlson. Liewe Vader, ek het n probleem, om dit eenvoudig te stel Die

Hearing Gods voice

I sought to hear the voice of God, and climbed the topmost steeple. But God declared “Go down again, I dwell among the people” - Louis I Newman. God will meet you where you are – you do not need to look too far. Have a blessed day! #spiritual #KoekieErlankBlog
