I have had more trouble with myself than with any other man.
God never made a promise that was too good to be true.
Preparation for old age should begin not later than one's teens. A life which is empty of purpose until 65 will not suddenly become filled on retirement.
You might as well try to hear without ears or breathe without lungs, as to try to live a Christian life without the Spirit of God in your heart.
Death may be the King of terrors... but Jesus is the King of kings!
A man ought to live so that everybody knows he is a Christian... and most of all, his family ought to know.
Give me a man who says this one thing I do, and not those fifty things I dabble in.
Faith makes all things possible... love makes all things easy.
Character is what a man is in the dark.

I know the Bible is inspired because it inspires me.
If I take care of my character, my reputation will take care of me.

He was shrewd enough to see that not one man in a thousand ever changed his opinion because of reason or logic... With his naïve stories he slipped around behind the stubborn intellect, flanked the line of doubts and occupied the heart. He was a great general. When you capture a man's heart, his intellect comes in the next day and surrenders.
