Inspirational Dana Arcuri Quotes

2. “The truth is that each of us falls short of loving unconditionally. We don’t love others the way God loves us. Yet Jesus extended perfect love by living and dying for all of our sins.

The origin of the word “happiness” was derived from the same root “hap”, similar to the word “happening.” Depending on what’s happening in our lives, we’re either happy or sad. It’s based on pure luck and good fortune.” ― Dana Arcuri

Dana Arcuri Quotes from books

Soul Cry Quotes by Dana Arcuri

You are worth the fight for a brighter future!” ― Dana Arcuri

46. “There is something magical and transformational about saying “yes” to God. When you take His hand, step out of that boat (your ordinary, comfortable life), and be brave.
