Calvin Miller
The ear and the eye are the mind’s receivers; but the tongue is only busy in expending the treasures received. It, therefore, the revenues of the mind be uttered as fast or faster than they are received, it must needs be bare, and can never lay up for purchase.
Joseph Hall

Sam Storms
The purest treasure mortal times can afford is a spotless reputation.
William Shakespeare
Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, your fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if you explore them.
Marilyn Ferguson
This thing called nationalism is a treasure that a country uses to try to develop and a nationality uses to try to survive. China has lost this treasure.

A lot of people don’t understand why I’m not out diving for treasure.
Clive Cussler
If we treasure our own experience and regard it as real, we must also treasure other people’s experience.
John Polanyi

Working with actors is actually something I treasure a lot.
Justin Lin
Science is one land, having the ability to accommodate even more people, as more residents gather in it; it is a treasure that is the greater the more it is shared. Because of that, each of us can do his work in his own way, and the common ground does not mean conformity.
Wilhelm Ostwald
When you read about a car crash in which two or three youngsters are killed, do you pause to dwell on the amount of love and treasure and patience parents poured into bodies no longer suitable for open caskets?
Jim Bishop
Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy.
The world, indeed, is like a dream and the treasures of the world are an alluring mirage! Like the apparent distances in a picture, things have no reality in themselves, but they are like heat haze.
Gautama Buddha
For missionary entrepreneurs, the dream outcome is to build an ‘Internet treasure’ – a brand that defines a generation, proves that we are better than our parents, and becomes something we couldn’t live without.
Bing Gordon
Poison.” he said, deadpan. “That’s an unusual name to give your child. You must love her very much.” She’s a treasure.” Bram agreed, blithely ignoing the sarcasm. …. Then went a few dozen feet in silence, until they were out of eaarshor of the gaurd. She’s a treasure.” Poison mimicked, and Bram burst out laughing.
Chris Wooding
That gloomy outside, like a rusty chest, contains the shoring treasure of a soul resolved and brave.
John Dryden
The Smithsonian museums are among this country’s most endearing treasures and I look forward to helping maintain and enhance their coveted works of art.
Xavier Becerra
Every second of the search is an encounter with God. When I have been truly searching for my treasure, every day has been luminous…I’ve discovered things along the way that I never would have seen had I not had the courage to try things that seemed impossible for a shepherd to achieve.
Paulo Coelho
He had known he wanted her, that it was for all time, but he hadn’t realized what was between them. A priceless gift, a treasure beyond his dreams. She was wrapped so tight inside of him, he knew it was more than his body and mind. More than his heart. She was entrenched in his soul. (Ryland, on Lily)
Christine Feehan
If it were not somewhat fanciful to suppose that every human excellence is presented, as it were, in one kind of being, we might believe that the whole treasure of morality and order is enshrined in the female character.
Wilhelm von Humboldt
What I treasure most at any moment is intimacy, surprise, a sense of mystery, wit, depth and love. A handful of cherished friends offer me this, and the occasional singer or film-maker or artist. But my most reliable sources of electricity are Henry David Thoreau, Shakespeare, Melville and Emily Dickinson.
Pico Iyer
Perhaps it’s an accident of nationality, but the English treasure subtlety and appreciate not having everything spelled out for them, while Americans want everything made apparent.
Tim Pigott-Smith
When you leave this world, will you be known as one who accumulated treasures on earth that you couldn’t keep? Or will you be recognized as one who invested treasures in heaven that you couldn’t lose?
Randy Alcorn
Heather Lende’s small town is populated with big hearts–she finds them on the beach, walking her granddaughters, in the stories of ordinary peoples’ lives, and knits them into unforgettable tales. Find the Good is a treasure.
Jo-Ann Mapson
The only amaranthine flower on earth is virtue; the only lasting treasure, truth.
William Cowper
The scholar does not consider gold and jade to be precious treasures, but loyalty and good faith.
I was a huge fan of ‘Treasure Hunt’ and ‘Challenge Anneka.’
Emma Willis
Home may be near, Home may be far – But it is anywhere love And a few plain household treasures are.
Grace Noll Crowell
Gratitude. More aware of what you have than what you don’t. Recognizing the treasure in the simple – a child’s hug, fertile soil, a golden sunset. Relishing in the comfort of the common.
Max Lucado
I’m talking like just the beauty, but at the same time to get people to realize that we should treasure it. Maybe visualize it, but leave it alone. A
DJ Spooky
Celebrate within yourself that wonderful treasure . . . true kindness.
George Sand
I thought of my mother as Queen Christina, cool and sad, eyes trained on some distant horizon. That was where she belonged, in furs and palaces of rare treasures, fireplaces large enough to roast a reindeer, ships of Swedish maple.
Janet Fitch
I will always treasure the nearly 3 years I spent working for James O’Keefe as an undercover journalist at Project Veritas.
Laura Loomer
… what will not the heart endure ere it will voluntarily surrender the hoarded treasure of its love to the cold dictates of reason or the stern voice of duty!
Susan Edmonstone Ferrier
For me, a journey to Damascus is an amazing hunt from beginning to end, a slice through layers of history in search of treasure.
Tahir Shah
It is easy enough to be virtuous When nothing tempts you to stray; When without or within No voice of sin Is luring your soul away. But it is only a negative virtue until it is tried by fire. For the soul that is worth the treasures of the earth is the soul that resists desire.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
The summer breeze was blowing on your face
Within your violet you treasure your summery words
And as the shiver from my neck down to my spine
Ignited me in daylight and nature in the garden
Van Morrison
The Sermon on the Mount commands me to lay up for myself treasures, not upon earth, but in Heaven. My hopes of a future life are all founded upon the Gospel of Christ.
John Quincy Adams
If you want to make a positive impact, no matter how far-reaching, start at home. Treat your family members like treasures.
John C. Maxwell
I have a treasure trove of Baker memories, all of which reinforce my sense of Howard Baker as one of the most decent people with whom I have worked. While I was simply a young staffer, he never treated me or my colleagues as anything else but equals.
John Yarmuth
Truth is the property of no individual but is the treasure of all men.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We try so hard to hold onto our stuff. We call it our treasure and expect to feel joy. But in God’s economy if we want to gain, we must give up. For joy won’t ever be found in collecting treasures. Joy radiates in our life only when we share our treasures.
Lysa TerKeurst
Having caught up with a myth like Sivori is something I will treasure forever. I am proud. He used to entertain and bamboozle defenders with his exceptional technique.
David Trezeguet
Great artists treasure their time with a bitter and snarling miserliness.
Catherine Drinker Bowen
Recurrent floods of sadness and anger gradually wash away the rubble of the defunct relationship, leaving only the bits of treasure: the remembered moments of real communion, a new understanding of your own mistakes, a clear picture of the dysfunctions you will never tolerate again.
Martha Beck
Whoever seeks God as a means toward desired ends will not find God. The mighty God, the maker of heaven and earth, will not be one of many treasures, not even the chief of all treasures. He will be all in all or He will be nothing. God will not be used.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
The sage desires no desire, does not value rare treasures, learns without learning, recovers what people have left behind.
Flea markets are fun because they are the ultimate treasure hunt. Be open to the fact that you never know what you’ll find. The most beautiful, quirky, funny, scary pieces may not have an intrinsic value.
Lara Spencer
I had a little dog and my dog was very small….Of all the treasures that were mine, I loved him most of all.
Francis Cornford
Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge. We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind.
Friedrich Nietzsche
With music, one’s whole future life is brightened. This is such a treasure in life that it helps us over many troubles and difficulties. Music is nourishment, a comforting elixir. Music multiplies all that is beautiful and of value in life.

H. P. Blavatsky
Discovering vocation does not mean scrambling toward some prize just beyond my reach but accepting the treasure of true self I already posses.
Parker J. Palmer
I sometimes wonder … if the land is not destroying the people who inhabit it as the people who inhabit it are destroying the land. A magic continent, a Peculiar Treasure, stuffed with riches, millions in it are starving in the midst of plenty.
Edna Ferber
The gospel cannot be preached and heard enough, for it cannot be grasped well enough … Moreover, our greatest task is to keep you faithful to this article and to bequeath this treasure to you when we die.
Martin Luther

Ben Jonson
The mob may hiss me, but I congratulate myself while I contemplate my treasures in their hoard.
You are the treasure custodian, cleaning the moon for me, scouring the sky so the stars would shine bright.
Lisa Loeb
trick is that you can’t find the hidden treasure until you start
digging. Often enough, if you take the leap and do something, something
will happen. Probably not what you thought, but something.
Debbi Fields
The palpable sense of mystery in the desert air breeds fables, chiefly of lost treasure. … It is a question whether it is not better to be bitten by the little horned snake of the desert that goes sidewise and strikes without coiling, than by the tradition of a lost mine.
Mary Hunter Austin
It strikes everyone in beginning to form an acquaintance with the treasures of Indian literature that a land so rich in intellectual products and those of the profoundest order of thought.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
I know that I’ve been given more than beyond measure. I come alive when I see beyond my fears. I know that I’ve been given more than earthly treasure. I come alive when I’ve broken down and given you control.
Jeremy Camp
Your treasure house is within; it contains all you’ll ever need.
Baizhang Huaihai
Wherever you are spiritually, whatever you have been through emotionally, you are already wrapped in the Lord’s embrace. Held by nail-scarred hands. Enfolded in the arms of One who believes in you, supports you, treasures you, and loves you.
Liz Curtis Higgs
Secrets aren’t secret. They’re just hidden treasures, waiting to be exploited.

Robin Sharma
Drudgery is as necessary to call out the treasures of the mind, as harrowing and planting those of the earth.
Margaret Fuller
Antoine St. Exupery once mourned the loss of a man and the secret treasures that he held inside him. I loved Exupery; I will read him again, and he will talk to me, not being dead, or gone. Is that life after death — mind living on paper and flesh living in offspring? Maybe. I do not know.
Sylvia Plath
We learn to treasure words that people call us;
we learn to live by words that hurt. We cannot toss
them aside, so in time they become our dignity.
Mark Doty
Do I think I’m a national treasure? I don’t see why not? I don’t see why I shouldn’t be. I’m a good lad, really.
Robbie Williams

Nadia Comaneci
If Germany, thanks to Hitler and his successors, were to enslave the European nations and destroy most of the treasures of their past, future historians would certainly pronounce that she had civilized Europe.
Simone Weil
Cracked pots allow the treasure to shine forth.
James N. Watkins
I always loved digging away at the story, trying to find out things that people don’t want you to find out and piecing it all together. I love the treasure hunt aspect of it, the thrill of the chase.
Kevin Macdonald
A classic is like a hidden treasure. Its core is buried under so many layers of varnish that it can be reached only by patience and infiltration.
Jean-Louis Barrault
The spiritual path wrecks the body And afterwards restores it to health. It destroys the house to unearth the treasure, And with that treasure builds it better than before.
One of the most satisfying aspects of writing is that it can open in us deep wells of hidden treasures that are beautiful for us as well as for others to see.
Henri Nouwen
All preaching should be as creative as we can make it. We’ve been entrusted with such a treasure. To have anywhere from 50 to 5000 people who give us 30 minutes of their time to hear whatever we want to say – I think they deserve all the creativity that we can give.
Max Lucado
This is the freeing truth you can learn through your depression: You weren’t created to love and worship anything more than you love and worship God; and when you do, you’ll feel bad. God has made you to feel pain when you’ve got other treasures that you’ve placed above Him. He wants you to treasure Him.
Elyse Fitzpatrick
One of the blessings of age is to learn not to part on a note of sharpness, to treasure the moments spent with those we love, and to make them whenever possible good to remember, for time is short.
Eleanor Roosevelt
I suppose I should say that I treasure blasphemy, as a faith of the highest order.
Rick Moody

Ry Cooder
Some archives and record offices are housed in your local museum or library; others have their own stand-alone building. Wherever they are, they are a treasure trove.

Too often, parents force their kids into becoming something they want them to become rather than trying unpack the treasure chest God wants them to become.
Stephen Kendrick
I treasure laughs more than anything; they’ve helped me in life the most.
Paul Rudd
If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.
Jesus Christ
Sweet is the breath of vernal shower,/ The bee’s collected treasure sweet,/ Sweet music’s melting fall, but sweeter yet/ The still small voice of gratitude.
Thomas Gray
Affliction is a treasure, and scarce any man hath enough of it. No man hath affliction enough that is not matured and ripened by it and made fit for God.
John Donne
There is great treasure there behind our skull and this is true about all of us. This little treasure has great, great powers, and I would say we only have learnt a very, very small part of what it can do.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
It distresses me that parents insist that their children read or make them read. The best way for children to treasure reading is to see the adults in their lives reading for their own pleasure.
Kate DiCamillo
Much of the world is focused on answers. This unfortunate. Situations change, the earth turns, and our needs fluctuate. Focusing on static answers puts one at a disadvantage. Empower yourself by searching for the right question as if it were a buried treasure and treasures will find you.
John Fairclough
I had never spent any time in Asia before, so when I flew over to film ‘Dramaworld’ in Seoul, the cast and crew and I became very good friends. That was the first time I had an experience like that, which I treasure and hold dearly.
Liv Hewson
There are few greater treasures to be acquired in youth than great poetry-and prose-stored in the memory. At the time one may resent the labor of storing. But they sleep in the memory and awake in later years, illuminated by life and illuminating it.
Richard Livingstone
You must keep all earthy treasures out of your heart, and let Christ be your treasure, and let Him have your heart.
Charles Spurgeon
If teardrops were pennies and heartaches were gold, I’d have all the treasures my pockets could hold.
Dolly Parton
I still remember, when I got my fees for ‘Barsaat,’ I ran into a car showroom and purchased a Maruti Esteem. I treasure that car more than anything else in the world.
Twinkle Khanna
What I treasure the most is people coming up to me in the elevator and saying, ‘You really did a great job’: neighbours who congratulate for a job well done or little fans who hug me and say they want to be like me.
Jackie Shroff
Hard work pays off. When someone tells you otherwise, beware the sales pitch for something “fast and easy” that’s about to come next. The greater your capacity for hard work, the more rewards fall within your grasp. The deeper you can dig, the more treasure you can potentially find.
Steve Pavlina
Friends are the most important part of your life. Treasure the tears, treasure the laughter, but most importantly, treasure the memories.
David Brenner
Freedom is our most precious treasure. Don’t lose it for anything. . . .
Lovers of literature will look for the remains of the golden treasure in that shipwreck on the bottom of the sea of criticism.
Josef Skvorecky
One of the strangest catastrophes that is in any history. A great king, with strong armies and mighty fleets, a great treasure and powerful allies, fell all at once, and his whole strength, like a spider’s web, was… irrecoverably broken at a touch.
Gilbert Burnet
Your life is much more important that you can imagine… it is your first treasure.
Maya Angelou
And not only did this great consolidated ecclesiasticism assume to lord it over men’s earthly treasures, but they lorded it over men’s minds, prescribing what men should think and read and write.
George W Truett
The art of tomorrow will be a collective treasure, or it will not be art at all.

Of all the treasures a state can possess, the human lives of its citizens are for us the most precious.
Joseph Stalin
The symphonic orchestras have sponsors, people who give them endowments, and I think it should be the same way with jazz – because this is a national treasure.
Lee Morgan
Am I a harp that the hand of the mighty may touch me, or a flute that his breath may pass through me? A seeker of silences am I, and what treasure have I found in silences that I may dispense with confidence?
Khalil Gibran
Perfect alchemists I keep who can transmute substances without end, and thus the corner of my garden is an inexhaustible treasure-chest. Here you can dig, not gold, but the value which gold merely represents; and there is no Signor Blitz about it.
Henry David Thoreau
He that marries is like the dogs who was married to the Adriatic. He knows not what there is in that which he marries; mayhap treasures and pearls, mayhap monsters and tempests, await him.
Heinrich Heine
The goodness of the heart is shown in deeds
Of peacefulness and kindness. Hand and heart
Are one thing with the good, as thou should’st be.
Do my words trouble thee? then treasure them,
Pain overgot gives peace, as death doth Heaven.
All things that speak of Heaven speak of peace.
Philip James Bailey
Do I guard myself, my heart, my feelings, my thoughts? Do I guard the treasure of grace? Do I guard the presence of the Holy Spirit in me? Or do I let go, feeling secure, believing that all is going well?
Pope Francis
Riches do not consist in the possession of treasures, but in the use made of them.
Napoleon Bonaparte
It’s only before realities set in that we can treasure our delusions.
Anna Quindlen
Always, some great culture is dying to enrich the soil of new harvests, some civlization is crumbling to rubbish to be the hill of a more beautiful city, some race is spending itself that a lower and more barbarous world may inherit its stored treasure house.
George Edward Woodberry
A punch should stay like a treasure in the sleeve. It should not be used indiscrimately.
Chotoku Kyan
Nature is man’s teacher. She unfolds her treasures to his search, unseals his eye, illumes his mind, and purifies his heart; an influence breathes from all the sights and sounds of her existence.
Alfred Nobel
Christopher Lynch has made the best and the first careful translation of Machiavelli’s Art of War. With useful notes, an excellent introduction, an interpretive essay, glossary, and index, it is a treasure for readers of military history and Renaissance thought as well as for lovers of Machiavelli.
Harvey Mansfield
Enter, stranger, but take heed Of what awaits the sin of greed, For those who take, but do not earn, Must pay most dearly in their turn. So if you seek beneath our floors A treasure that was never yours, Thief, you have been warned, beware Of finding more than treasure there.
J. K. Rowling
A Charlie Brown Christmas’ is a national treasure because it delivers beautifully the central miracle of Christmas: Emmanuel – God With Us. From the wood of the manger to the wood of the cross.
Don Willett
the unconscious of an artist is her greatest treasure. It is what transmutes the dross of autobiography into the gold of myth.
Erica Jong
If you are not afraid of the voices inside you, you will not fear the critics outside you. Besides, those voices are merely guardians and demons protecting the real treasure, the first thoughts of the mind.
A friend who offers help without asking for explanations is a treasure beyond price

Trust is that rare and priceless treasure that wins us the affection of our heavenly Father.
Brennan Manning
I exist only because inside of me and above all else I am only and above all a Neapolitan. Naples exists inside of me, and always will. Fortunately for me there is this treasure that I have inside of me and, when I need it, then I pull it out.
Sophia Loren
It is a better thing to save souls for the Lord than to save treasures. He who sent forth his apostles without gold had not need of gold to form his Church. The Church possesses gold, not to hoard, but to scatter abroad and come to the aid of the unfortunate.
If you instill in your child a love of the outdoors and an appreciation of nature, you will have given him a treasure no one can take away.
Ted Trueblood
A person fully awakened to the jewel-like dignity of their own life is capable of truly respecting that same treasure in others.
Daisaku Ikeda
I believe that every man has in his soul a passion for treasure-hunting, which will often drive a coward into prodigies of valour.
John Buchan
Whenever Roosevelt (Theodore) expected a visitor, he sat up late the night before, reading up on the subject in which he knew his guest was particularly interested. For Roosevelt knew, all the leaders royal road to a person’s heart is to talk about the things he or she treasures most.
Dale Carnegie
Betty White’s Sue Ann Nivens was classic… She had done so much with that man-crazy character! Betty made every moment count. She still does. I’ve declared her an American treasure, because she is just that.
Gavin MacLeod
A fine glass vase goes from treasure to trash, the moment it is broken. Fortunately, something else happens to you and me. Pick up your pieces. Then, help me gather mine.
Vera Nazarian
Affliction is a treasure, and scarce any man hath enough of it.

Pope Paul V
Increasingly unable to create for itself a relevant body of myth, the modern imagination will ransack the treasure house of the classic.
George Steiner
And Americans have always stood ready to pay the cost in energy and treasure which are needed to make those goals a reality.
Lyndon B. Johnson
We are unknown to ourselves, we men of knowledge – and with good reason. We have never sought ourselves – how could it happen that we should ever find ourselves? It has rightly been said: “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”; our treasure is where the beehives of our knowledge are.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I’m an adventurer, looking for treasure
Paulo Coelho
Covetousness teaches people to be cruel and crafty, industrious and evil, full of care and malice; and after all this, it is for no good to itself, for it dares not spend those heaps of treasure which it has snatched.
Jeremy Taylor
The book borrower…proves himself to be an inveterate collector of books not so much by the fervor with which he guards his borrowed treasures…as by his failure to read these books.
Walter Benjamin
The highest and most precious treasure we receive of God is, that we can speak, hear, see, etc.; but how few acknowledge these as God’s special gifts, much less give God thanks for them.
Martin Luther
Children are the brightest treasures we bring forth into this world, but too large a percentage of the population continues to treat them as inconveniences and nuisances, when they’re not treating them as possessions or toys.
Charles de Lint
LOVE will lay a carpet of treasures under your feet.
The priceless treasure of boyhood is his endless enthusiasm, his high store of idealism, his affections and his hopes. When we preserve these, we have made men. We have made citizens and we have made Americans.
Herbert Hoover
A book store is a treasure chest. Every time you walk in one, you strike gold.
Regina Brett
I am an underwater explorer, not a treasure hunter.
Robert Ballard
There’s nothing in the world like buried treasure-and people hungry and obsessed enough to risk their lives for it. Pirate Hunters isn’t just a good story-it’s a true one. Searching for the souls of its explorers, it takes you to the far tip of the plank and plunges you deep to the bottom of the ocean.
Brad Meltzer
I treasure all my friendships.
Jim Nantz
Ours is a culture and a time immensely rich in trash as it is in treasures.
Ray Bradbury
The Bible is no lazy man’s book! Much of its treasure, like the valuable minerals stored in the bowels of the earth, only yield up themselves to the diligent seeker.
Arthur W. Pink
I felt that I was leaving part of myself behind, and that wherever I went afterwards I should feel the lack of it, and search for it hopelessly, as ghosts are said to do, frequenting the spots where they buried material treasures without which they cannot pay their way to the nether world.
Evelyn Waugh
You are the owner of all that you perceive. But you can’t perceive apart from your vibration. Feel your way, little-by-little, into a greater sense of abundance by looking for the treasures that the Universe is offering you on a day-to-day basis.
Esther Hicks
A treasure…at the top of any list of fantasy to be cherished.
Andre Norton
My past is very interesting, and I treasure it, but to write about it, it’s just not on my radar.
Steve Vai

Dalai Lama
Treasure is stored in the ruined places.
Do not break the hearts of the poor
and heartbroken people
I loved every minute of my childhood – sunbathing on the fire escape, digging for buried treasure in the back yard, pulling alewives out of the sand… Then it was all taken away from me. I came back every summer to visit my father until I was 18, but I was always the outsider.
Jennifer Egan
…like the 75 billion souls who lived before him, each and every one a treasure, he, too, will die.
Ben Sherwood
Treasure Island is completed! The entire set of seventeen canvases without one break in my enthusiasm and spirit. Better in every quality than anything I ever did.
N. C. Wyeth
If love is the treasure, laughter is the key.
Yakov Smirnoff
If you knew yourself for even one moment, if you could just glimpse your most beautiful face, maybe you wouldn’t slumber so deeply in that house of clay. Why not move into your house of joy and shine into every crevice! For you are the secret Treasure-bearer, and always have been. Didn’t you know?
I think Noam Chomsky is a national treasure – make that an international treasure.
Jello Biafra
We also can’t try to take over and rebuild every country that falls into crisis. That’s not leadership; that’s a recipe for quagmire, spilling American blood and treasure that ultimately weakens us. It’s the lesson of Vietnam, of Iraq – and we should have learned it by now.
Barack Obama
Judge not the preacher; for he is thy judge:
If thou mislike him, thou conceiv’st him not.
God calleth preaching folly. Do not grudge
To pick out treasures from an earthen pot.
The worst speak something good. If all want sense,
God takes a text, and preaches patience.
George Herbert
…Gratitude transforms the torment of memory of good things now gone into silent joy. One bears what was lovely in the past not as a thorn but as a precious gift deep within, a hidden treasure of which one can always be certain.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Our military men and women are our greatest national treasure. They should be safeguarded as such upon their return.
Tammy Duckworth
Is it your thought that I despise some of these, while I love the others? I tell you, I despise nothing. None of it is repulsive to Me. It is life, and life is the gift; the unspeakable treasure; the holy of holies.
Neale Donald Walsch
Every so often, I am thanked for being ‘unapologetically me.’ I treasure those moments, those people, and remember them every time I’m feeling timid.
Alethea Kontis
We can also cling to the treasures of our faith and get rid of the things that are cluttering that. It is a time we are seeing some trending away from the things that were cluttering our faith.
Shane Claiborne
A stranger here Strange things doth meet, strange glories see; Strange treasures lodged in this fair world appear, Strange all, and new to me. But that they mine should be, who nothing was, That strangest is of all, yet brought to pass.
Thomas Traherne
What you treasure will ultimately require you die for it, Jesus is the only treasure that died for you.
Timothy Keller

Jodi Picoult
That great political idea, sanctifying freedom and consecrating it to God, teaching men to treasure the liberties of others as their own and to defend them for the love of justice and charity more than as a claim of right, has been the soul of what is great and good in the progress of the last two hundred years.
Lord Acton
The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever.

treasure that up, and in a few years you will have a great store of useful

Do thou snatch treasures from my lips, and I’ll take kingdoms back from thine.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
I’ll just be the first to say that Ken [Watanabe] should be a national treasure in Japan, because he is an unbelievably talented actor. You couldn’t find more of a gentleman. He’s sweet, he’s kind and he’s extremely thoughtful in the work that he does.
Leonardo DiCaprio
I think Kyle Chandler is something of a national treasure.
Ben Mendelsohn

Gregory of Nazianzus

Leonid Brezhnev
Meeting and talking to the artist adds a special element to collecting contemporary art that makes the work an irreplaceable treasure rather than just another possession.
Ernest West Basden
I saw a lot of lousy movies and watched a ton of crappy television and read a bunch of utterly forgettable books and comics and listened to hours of junk music as a kid. And I’m still drawing profitably in my own art on some of the tawdry treasure I stored up in those years.
Michael Chabon
It is always our treasure that the lightning strikes.
Harriet Beecher Stowe

The fears you run away from run toward you. The fears you don’t own will own you. But behind every fear wall lives a precious treasure.
Robin S. Sharma
Yes, I’m a fan, and ‘The Lost City of Z’ has been my inspiration. Percy Fawcett was one of my heroes, and I loved the book and the film. I was lost in the same area that Fawcett had explored, and I can identify with his sense of passion and obsession, and I definitely see the romance in searching for lost treasure.

Roger Caras
I believe in it, and I trust it too and treasure it above everything, the personal, the personal, the personal! I put my faith in it not only as the source, the ground of meaning in art, in life, but as the meaning itself.
Eudora Welty
Try to make at least one person happy every day. If you cannot do a kind deed, speak a kind word. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought. Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime!

Honore de Balzac
Do not try to explain feelings. Live everything intensely and treasure what you feel as a gift from God.

Carl Jung
I have noted that, barring accidents, artists whose powers wear best and last longest are those who have trained themselves to work under adversity. Great artists treasure their time with a bitter and snarling miserliness.

Bob Keeshan
What people read revealed so much about them that she considered our card catalog a treasure house of privileged secrets; each card contained the map of an individual’s soul.
Alice Hoffman
It distresses me that parents insist that their children read or make them read. I think the best way for children to treasure reading is for them to see the adults in their lives reading for their own pleasure.
Kate DiCamillo
True joy is the earnest which we have of heaven, it is the treasure of the soul, and therefore should be laid in a safe place, and nothing in this world is safe to place it in.
John Donne
In loss itself I find assuagement: having lost the treasure, I’ve nothing to fear.
Juana InГ©s de la Cruz
The salient mystery of Dark Ages sets the stage for mass amnesia. People living in vigorous cultures typically treasure those cultures and resist any threat to them. How and why can a people so totally discard a formerly vital culture that it becomes vitally lost?
Jane Jacobs
We can choose to see life as a series of trials and tribulations, or we can choose to see life as an accumulation of treasures.
Max De Pree
If you deceive someone, you lose one of life’s greatest treasures, you lose the capacity to trust. Because without trust, love is not possible.

Nora Roberts
Costly grace is the treasure hidden in the field; for the sake of it a man will gladly go and sell all he has. It is the pearl of great price to by which the merchant will sell all his goods.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Love is the flowering of meditation. Meditation brings many treasures; perhaps love is the greatest roseflower that grows on the bush of meditation.
It’s a new day at the Department of Interior, and we need to examine what makes the most sense for the American people.

I have seen great beauty of spirit in some who were great sufferers. I have seen men, for the most part, grow better not worse with advancing years, and I have seen the last illness produce treasures of fortitude and meekness from most unpromising subjects.
C. S. Lewis
A woman’s beauty is a treasure beyond price.
Sijie Dai
For this present, hard
Is the fortune of the bard,
Born out of time;
All his accomplishment,
From Nature’s utmost treasure spent,
Booteth not him.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Yes, letter writing is antiquated – though there remain a few renegades who still so treasure the luxury of contemplating their lives in letters that they would rather write than call.
Joan Frank
There was an idea in the air, becoming clearer and stronger, an idea not just in the theories of Karl Marx but in the dreams of writers and artists through the ages: that people might cooperatively use the treasures of the earth to make life better for everyone, not just a few.
Howard Zinn
Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.
Martin Luther
I treasure solitude. One doesn’t have to have human contact.
Doris Lessing
The Bön texts are thousands of years old, and I am sure that not even 7 percent of what is still in monasteries, libraries and caves has been translated. Even without taking into consideration the spiritual aspect, Bön should be preserved as a treasure for humanity just for its cultural aspect.
Anne Klein
In Estonia, our greatest national treasure is our egalitarian educational system.

Yotam Ottolenghi
To what greater inspiration and counsel can we turn than to the imperishable truth to be found in this treasure house, the Bible?
Queen Elizabeth II
Laura Ingalls Wilder’s ‘Little House’ series is a national treasure, beloved by generations. But what I love most is the peek it provides into the planting, harvesting, hunting, and preparing of the foods that America’s settler families ate in the late 1800s.

Swami Parthasarathy
We burn the evil men do with their mortal remains. We treasure the memory of the good they do, and distance magnifies it.
Mahatma Gandhi
It doesn’t matter whether they [beloved ones] are on this planet or not on this planet anymore. Once something is bound by love, as long as that love exists, there is nothing that can separate us. There is the appearance of separation, but the heart, it always treasures and values that.
Richard Bach
Brendan O’Meara’s Six Weeks in Saratoga is a victory to be savored by those who treasure good writing in general and tales of the track in particular. Horses may win races, but they also win hearts as this impressive book proves beyond doubt. A memorable, sure-footed debut.
Madeleine Blais
He that first cries out stop thief, is often he that has stolen the treasure.
William Congreve
Few people, very few, have a treasure, and if you do you must hang onto it. You must not let yourself be waylaid, and have it taken from you.

Neil Gaiman
Quotologists encounter happy surprises, bright books by faded authors, treasures hidden under dust.
Willis Regier
If we treasure our own experience and regard it as real, we must also treasure other people’s experience. Reality is no less precious if it presents itself to someone else. All are discoverers, and if we disenfranchise any, all suffer.
John Polanyi
A lot of people would write to me long stories from their lives, and I felt they were thinking of me as some sort of treasure chest to keep their secrets. I felt like sometimes they would tell me stories they wouldn’t tell anybody else in the whole world. And I loved these stories.
Jens Lekman
It’s important to celebrate the monogram. It’s the DNA of Vuitton. I think – I hope – there is an interest in the philosophy and culture of the Vuitton name. It’s quite coherent and intellectual, and the products are great. These are things you will want to pass on – things you treasure.
Delphine Arnault
Whatever you may do for your brother, being hungry, and a stranger, and naked, not even the devil will be able to despoil, but it will be laid up in an inviolabe treasure.
Saint John Chrysostom
My mom passed on her obsession of all things antique or vintage. I love to go thrift store shopping or explore any sort of garage sale. Treasure hunting is a family passion.

Francis Bacon
The pleasant books, that silently among Our household treasures take familiar places, And are to us as if a living tongue Spake from the printed leaves or pictured faces!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I’m obsessed with New York. I just find it so remarkable. You really treasure this city when you go to different countries and you see that there is no mix. When you get back to the city, it’s such an exciting place.
Martin Scorsese
The treasures of the earth were movement, courage, laughter and love.
Mark Helprin
Many Christians dread the thought of leaving this world. Why? Because so many have stored up their treasures on earth, not in heaven. Each day brings us closer to death. If your treasures are on earth, that means each day brings you closer to losing your treasures.
Randy Alcorn
A self-denial, no less austere than the saint’s, is demanded of the scholar. He must worship truth, and forgo all things for that,and choose defeat and pain, so that his treasure in thought is thereby augmented.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
This Is Not a Novel memorializes the treasures and detritus of one man’s singularly cultured mind. (…) If you don’t know Writer’s work at all, try This Is Not a Novel. There may be some doubt about exactly what kind of book it is, but not that it’s altogether wonderful.
Michael Dirda
The more I see of Italy and her treasures, the more I see paganism in Christianity.

Rick Yancey
They dont understand what real treasure is. They see it in gold and copper, and tin. They see in herds of horses or cattle. They gather treasures to themselves, building great storehouses, which they guard ferociously. Then they die. What good is it then?
David Gemmell
Our faces will become works of art that our grandchildren will treasure.
Adriana Trigiani
Jesus, it is true, shows no personal interest in gain, but he does speak of treasure in heaven and even of mansions as an inducement to follow him. Is it not further true that all religions down the ages have shown a keen interest in the amassment of material goods in the real world?
Christopher Hitchens
Life is really not easy, we all have our personal battles, but it is important that you really treasure yourself, love yourself and have a sense of self-worth.

Dieter F. Uchtdorf
The Union, which can alone insure internal peace, and external security to each State, Must and Shall be Preserved, cost what it may in time, treasure, and blood.
George B. McClellan
All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.
Abraham Lincoln
Heroes take journeys, confront dragons, and discover the treasure of their true selves.
Carol Lynn Pearson
To know God as the sovereign disposer of all good, inviting us to present our requests, and yet not to approach or ask of him, were so far from availing us, that it were just as if one told of a treasure were to allow it to remain buried in the ground.
John Calvin
Be sensible of your wants, that you maybe sensible of your treasures.
Thomas Traherne
Democracy is not a good that people can enjoy without trouble. It is, on the contrary, a treasure that must be daily defended and conquered anew by strenuous effort.
Ludwig von Mises
Lay aside all conceit Learn to read the book of Nature for yourself. Those who have succeeded best have followed for years some slim thread which once in a while has broadened out and disclosed some treasure worth a life-long search.
Louis Agassiz
I have become interested in languages which I cannot make up, which I cannot create or even create in: I have become interested in languages which I can only come up upon (as I disappear), a pirate upon buried treasure. The dreamer, the dreaming, the dream. I call these languages, languages of the body.
Kathy Acker
Forced from home, and all its pleasures, afric coast I left forlorn; to increase a stranger’s treasures, o the raging billows borne. Men from England bought and sold me, paid my price in paltry gold; but, though theirs they have enroll’d me, minds are never to be sold.
William Cowper

A good woman is a hidden treasure; who discovers her will do well not to boast about it.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Pride is a funny thing; it can make what is truly worthless appear to be a treasure.
Alice Hoffman
Remember the Three Princes of Serendip who went out looking for treasure? They didn’t find what they were looking for, but they kept finding things just as valuable. That’s serendipity, and our business [drugs] is full of it.
George W. Bush
I wiped away the weeds and foam, I fetched my sea-borne treasures home.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sandra Day O’Connor
King Drowden has given his men instructions to infiltrate the town, bribe townspeople for the secrets of their neighbors, steal the neighbors’ hidden treasures. Much more subtle than Drowden’s usual smash and burn technique. We do hope Drowden isn’t growing a brain.

Mark Shields
Compensation is counterintuitive:В  The more treasure you give away to those who serve well, the more treasure will return to you.В  But few people perceive this simple truth.В  Most try to keep as much as they can for themselves and give little away.В  That’s why their purses refuse to fatten.
Toyotomi Hideyoshi

I treasure the fact there’s media freedom, but with that goes responsibility. I think that there should be a self-regulatory organization and that they should start to think about standards.

Benjamin Franklin
America is a great nation, but it cannot spend blood and treasure endlessly.

Mata Amritanandamayi
In a good script, it’s really like a treasure map. You just focus on that, all the answers are pretty much in it.
Judd Nelson
Life is wasted if we do not grasp the glory of the cross, cherish it for the treasure that it is, and cleave to it as the highest price of every pleasure and the deepest comfort in every pain.

Pat Conroy
We Christians must simplify our lives or lose untold treasures on earth and in eternity. Modern civilization is so complex as to make the devotional life all but impossible. The need for solitude and quietness was never greater than it is today.

Robbie Williams
He who seeks to approach his own buried past must conduct himself like a man digging… This confers the tone and bearing of genuine reminiscences. He must not be afraid to return again and again to the same matter; to scatter it as one scatters earth, to turn it over as one turns over soil.
Walter Benjamin
This diagnosis is a reminder that this is the life you’ve got. And you’re not getting another one. Whatever has happened, you have to take this life and treasure and protect it.

Rodman Philbrick
Trust that the treasure we look for is hidden in the ground on which we stand.
Henri Nouwen
Like all real treasures of the mind, perception can be split into infinitely small fractions without losing its quality. The weeds in a city lot convey the same lesson as the redwoods; the farmer may see in his cow-pasture what may not be vouchsafed to the scientist adventuring in the South Seas.
Aldo Leopold
To the old, long life and treasure; To the young, all health and pleasure.
Ben Jonson
