Christian

Famous quotes containing the word christian:

    It is hard for those who have never known persecution,
    And who have never known a Christian,
    To believe these tales of Christian persecution.
    It is hard for those who live near a Bank
    To doubt the security of their money.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Our age is pre-eminently the age of sympathy, as the eighteenth century was the age of reason. Our ideal men and women are they, whose sympathies have had the widest culture, whose aims do not end with self, whose philanthropy, though centrifugal, reaches around the globe.
    Frances E. Willard 1839–1898, U.S. president of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union 1879-1891, author, activist. The Woman’s Magazine, pp. 137-40 (January 1887)

    I’ll not be made a soft and dull-eyed fool
    To shake the head, relent, and sigh, and yield
    To Christian intercessors.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
