Happy moments, PRAISE GOD.
Difficult moments, SEEK GOD.
Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD
Painful moments, TRUST GOD.
Every moment, THANK GOD.

I came across this quote and thought, wow, that is nice. True. Then I thought I would google to see if anyone claims the quote. Like a source if possible. I found this. Great, it is a Muslim quote and the "God" they are referring to is Allah. How can I use this quote when it is not my God, the one true God. But yet, why not it meaning to my God, Jehovah. Still good or not? Would be interesting to see if there are other quotes I know that are actually from the Qur'an. Never thought about it before. But surely people use it in political speeches or somewhere and we would never know it.

I have seen that quote in someones signature line before, who knew?

There are many quotes that even christians use as christian quotes that are not biblical. Of course I cant think of any off the top of my congested pregnant head.
