Rick Warren Love Quotes and Sayings
1. Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you will never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.
2. It is not enough just to say relationships are important; we must prove it by investing time in them. Words alone are worthless.
3. Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is “T – I – M – E.”
4. The best use of life is love. The best expression of love is time. The best time to love is now.
5. Life minus love equals zero.

Sayings by Rick Warren
1. We are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it.
2. Resentment always hurts you more than it does the person you resent. While your offender has probably forgotten the offense and gone on with life, you continue to stew in your pain, perpetuating the past. Listen: those who hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment. Your past is past! Nothing will change it. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go.
3. Forgiveness must be immediate, whether or not a person asks for it. Trust must be rebuilt over time. Trust requires a track record.
4. Other people are going to find healing in your wounds. Your greatest life messages and your most effective ministry will come out of your deepest hurts.
5. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.
6. Why is this happening to me? Why am I having such a difficult time? One answer is that life is supposed to be difficult! It’s what enables us to grow.
7. If you have felt hopeless, hold on! Wonderful changes are going to happen in your life as you begin to live it on purpose.
8. Frankness is not a license to say anything you want, wherever and whenever you want. It is not rudeness.
