Hiedi Quotes

My mother is reading the amazing book HIEDI to my younger sister. As I sit often times, busy with my own life, I can hear the words of the sweetest character to ever enhance the pages of books. She is fictional and sometimes we laugh at her antics, but deep down inside I think that we all long to be as simple and sweet as she! I wanted to do a quote page today, so thanks to my mother and sister I decide to fill my post with her words…Hiedi quotes. Enjoy =]

“We must pray to God everyday to show we don’t forget that all gifts come from Him. But if some wishes remain unfulfilled we must show our confidence in Him, for He knows best.”
― Johanna SpyriHeidi

“Go now and wash yourself first, for the sun will laugh at you if he sees how dirty you are.”
― Johanna SpyriHeidi

“I’ll always say my prayers…and if God doesn’t answer them at once I shall know it’s because He’s planning something better for me.”
― Johanna SpyriHeidi

“God certainly knows of some happiness for us which He is going to bring out of the trouble, only we must have patience and not run away. And then all at once something happens and we see clearly ourselves that God has had some good thought in His mind all along; but because we cannot see things beforehand, and only know how dreadfully miserable we are, we think it is always going to be so.”
― Johanna SpyriHeidi

“I want to go about like the light-footed goats.”
― Johanna SpyriHeidi
