For months, Apples of Gold sat on the shelf at the head of the bed I share with my sister. I thought of it as my sister's book. I didn't know when she had gotten because I didn't care enough to ask. Finally, I picked it up and opened it. As I started reading through it, I gained an appreciation for it.

Apples of Gold is a compilation of hundreds of quotes from many authors, sorted into nine categories based on the biblical Fruit of the Spirit. It inspires readers to think deeply and seriously abo

A book of sayings, proverbs, aphorisms and quotes, although none are attributed to their sources, even the ones I recognized from historical figures and various authors, which I found a bit odd.

Some highlights were:

Restraint without love is barbarity. Love without restraint is suicide.

If a single man achieves the highest kind of love, it will be sufficient to neutralize the hate of millions.

My cousin Grace passed this book on to me when my dearest friend died. She had been given it after suffering a loss, with the intent that she would pass it on when needed. It is such a meaningful book with small quotes of sort to fit so many needs,emotions and just everyday happenings in life. Read a little or a lot, I highly recommend this book. Thank you Grace.

I liked Apples of Gold because it has organized sections of spiritual topics (Love, Joy, Peace, Long suffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, and Temperance). Each section then has quotes. I was preparing a talk for church on Treasure, and I found what I was looking for in the Temperance section: Quotes about money. This little book is a gem, and I would like it on my book shelf.

This is a compilation of some very beautiful quotes; I marked it down two points because the author does not cite her sources (even though some are very well known; even if they are not, I'd still like to know who said them so I could read more...). That being said, this book does contain some helpful and thought provoking quotes.

This book will be in my library forever. I can turn to virtually any page and be uplifted by the sayings upon that page. The topics covered: love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. Sound like something from the Bible? Well it is, Galatians 5:22!

“Worry never climbed a hill
Worry never paid a bill
Worry never dried a tear
Worry never calmed a fear
Worry never darned a heel
Worry never cooked a meal
Worry never led a horse to water
Worry never done a thing you'd think it oughta.”
