Quote Left Washington's birthday is as close to a secular Christmas as any Christian country dare come this side of blasphemy. Quote Right
Quote Left ....Then he felt quite ashamed, and hid his head under his wing; for he did not know what to do, he was so happy, and yet not at all proud. He had been persecuted and despised for his ugliness, and now he heard them say he was the most beautiful of all the birds. Even the elder-tree bent down its bows into the water before him, and the sun shone warm and bright. He would never became vain or conceited, and would always remembered how it felt to be despised and teased, and he was very sorry for all the creatures who are so treated merely because they are different from those around them. Then he rustled his feathers, curved his slender neck, and cried joyfully, from the depths of his heart, Quote Right
Quote Left Just living is not enough, said the Butterfly. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. Quote Right
Quote Left A Christian is nothing but a sinful man who has put himself to school for Christ for the honest purpose of becoming better. Quote Right
Quote Left If people really want to go, and really try all their lives, I think they will get in; for I don’t believe there are any locks on that door, or any guards at the gate. I always imagine it is as it is in the picture, where the shining ones stretch out their hands to welcome poor Christian as he comes up from the river. Quote Right
Quote Left The test of Christian character should be that a man is a joy-bearing agent to the world. Quote Right
Quote Left It is God who lets the wild apples grow, to satisfy the hungry. He showed her a wild apple-tree, with the boughs bending under the weight of the fruit. Here she took her midday meal, placing props under the boughs, and then went into the darkest part of the forest. There it was so still that she could hear her own footsteps, as well as the rustling of every dry leaf which bent under her feet. Not one bird was to be seen, not one ray of sunlight could find its way through the great dark boughs of the trees; the lofty trunks stood so close together that when she looked before her it appeared as though she were surrounded by sets of palings one behind the other. O, here was solitude such as she had never before known! Quote Right
Quote Left The seven deadly sins: Want of money, bad health, bad temper, chastity, family ties, knowing that you know things, and believing in the Christian religion. Quote Right
Quote Left The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried. Quote Right
Quote Left Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. Quote Right
Quote Left I honestly believe that in my lifetime we will see a country once again governed by Christians...and Christian values. What Christians have got to do is take back this country, one precinct at a time, one neighborhood at a time, and one state at a time. Quote Right
Quote Left I hate science. It denies a man's responsibility for his own deeds, abolishes the brotherhood that springs from God's fatherhood. It is a hectoring, dictating expertise, which makes the least lovable of the Church Fathers seem liberal by contrast. It is far easier for a Hitler or a Stalin to find a mock-scientific excuse for persecution than it was for Dominic to find a mock-Christian one. Quote Right
Quote Left We hope to stand in the middle and look at left and the right and say that we believe the only way to get it consistently right is based on what we believe are biblical, Christian ethics. Quote Right
Quote Left It is in the ordinary duties and labors of life that the Christian can and should develop his spiritual union with God. Quote Right
Quote Left No egoism is so insufferable as that of the Christian with regard to his soul. Quote Right
Quote Left Where words fail, music speaks. Quote Right
Quote Left The grandest of all laws is the law of progressive development. Under it, in the wide sweep of things, men grow wiser as they grow older, and societies better. Quote Right
Quote Left No man is happy without a delusion of some kind. Delusions are as necessary to our happiness as realities. Quote Right
Quote Left I certainly do not consider myself permanently dedicated to a crusade for peace and I am beginning to see the uselessness and absurdity of getting too involved in a 'peace movement.' The chief reason why I have spoken out was that I felt I owed it to my conscience to do so. There are certain things that have to be clearly stated. I had in mind particularly the danger arising from the fact that some of the most belligerent people in this country are Christians, on the one hand fundamentalist Protestants and on the other certain Catholics. They both tend to appeal to the bomb to do a 'holy' work of destruction in the name of Christ and Christian truth. This is completely intolerable and the truth has to be stated. I cannot in conscience remain indifferent. Quote Right
Quote Left To be like Christ is to be a Christian. Quote Right
Quote Left In one important respect a man is fortunate in being poor. His responsibility to God is so much the less. Quote Right
Quote Left Being born in a duck yard does not matter, if only you are hatched from a swan's egg. Quote Right
Quote Left Every man's life is a fairy-tale written by God's fingers. Quote Right
Quote Left I believe in one God, and no more; and I hope for happiness beyond this life. I believe in the equality of man; and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice, loving mercy, and endeavoring to make our fellow-creatures happy. But, lest it should be supposed that I believe in many other things in addition to these, I shall, in the progress of this work, declare the things I do not believe, and my reasons for not believing them. I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church. All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit. I do not mean by this declaration to condemn those who believe otherwise; they have the same right to their belief as I have to mine. But it is necessary to the happiness of man, that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe. Quote Right
Quote Left I cannot bear it! said the pewter soldier. I have shed pewter tears! It is too melancholy! Rather let me go to the wars and lose arms and legs! It would at least be a change. I cannot bear it longer! Now, I know what it is to have a visit from one's old thoughts, with what they may bring with them! I have had a visit from mine, and you may be sure it is no pleasant thing in the end; I was at last about to jump down from the drawers. Quote Right
Quote Left Live as you will have wished to have lived when you are dying. Quote Right
Quote Left I love freedom for what I can do with it, I hate freedom for what I have done with it. Quote Right
Quote Left Fame - a few words upon a tombstone, and the truth of those not to be depended on. Quote Right
Quote Left If you listen to our music, it's not just blatant Christian music. We went people to listen, look back at the music and ask themselves, 'What do they mean by this?' Then they can come to us and ask about the songs. Quote Right
Quote Left Consistency, madam, is the first of Christian duties. Quote Right

Quote Left I'm back from my voyage to the Appalachian Mountains. My last stop was near a little town called Martin. This valley is called a"holler," and being there was a real heartbreaker. Myself and a few other Veterans were volunteering for a great company called The Christian Appalachian Project. There is so much more I would like to share with you, but remembering those families and children who live in complete poverty brings tears to my eyes. I am posting a poem about my service there.

Quote Left A Soldier Is Always On Guard By Dana Redricks December 6, 2015 A soldier never become so relaxed that they are not aware of their surroundings, and as Christian’s soldiers we have an enemy like a roaring lion seeking out to destroy us, so we must be on guard at all time, and in constant pray.
