Call them sayings, slogans or soundbites, there's plenty of good ones out there.

Here's one I just read from Charlie Daniels:

"A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort."

Chuckle, chuckle.

Sorta reminds me of Proverbs 25:21-22 (NIV)

21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
22 In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the LORD will reward you.

And its NT counterpart found in Romans 12:19-21 (NIV))
19 Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's
wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay,"
says the Lord.
20 On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

A couple of my favorites:

"You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body."~C.S. Lewis

"We are not human beings who have occasional spiritual experiences but spiritual beings going through a temporary human experience."

Backed up by:

1 Corinthians 2:16 to 18 - "For which cause we faint not, but though our OUTWARD MAN perish, yet the INWARD MAN is renewed day by day. For our light affliction which is but for a moment worketh for us a far more exceeding and ETERNAL weight of glory; While we look not at THE THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN, but at THE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN; for the THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN are TEMPORAL, but THE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN are ETERNAL."

Praise the Lord!
