A Collection of Quotes

October 7

I’m an ardent quote-lover and quote-collector. Today, I’ve gathered a few of my favorite quotes to share with you, from theologians’ words to simple truths.

“There is no pit so deep, that God’s love is not deeper still.” -Corrie ten Boom

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” -George R. R. Martin

“If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him.” -C.T. Studd

“God, I pray Thee, light these idle sticks of my life and may I burn up for Thee. Consume my life, my God, for it is Thine. I seek not a long life but a full one, like you, Lord Jesus.” -Jim Elliot

“There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninteresting person.” -G.K. Chesterton

“Visit many good books, but live in the Bible.” -C.H. Spurgeon

“God’s purpose for my life was that I have a passion for God’s glory and that I have a passion for my joy in that glory, and that these two are one passion.” -Jonathan Edwards

 

What is your favorite quote? I’d love to hear it!

God bless you,

Bethany J.

  1. Frodo: “I can’t do this, Sam.” Sam: “I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness, and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end, because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it’ll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.”
    Frodo: “What are we holding on to, Sam?”
    Sam: “That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo…and it’s worth fighting for.”

    “The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.” -George Mueller.
