  • "Make a rule (and pray to God to help you to keep it) never, if possible, to lie down at night without being able to say ~I have made one human being, at least, a little wiser, a little happier, or a little better this day~." Charles Kingsley
  • "God created things which had free will. That means creatures which can go either wrong or right. Some people think they can imagine a creature which was free but had no possibility of going wrong; I cannot. If a thing is free to be good it is also free to be bad. And free will is what has made evil possible. Why, then, did God give them free will? Because free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having."~ C.S. Lewis
  • "When you come to knowing God, the initiative lies on His side. If He does not show Himself, nothing you can do will enable you to find Him. And, in fact, He shows much more of Himself to some people than to others---not because He has favourites, but because it is impossible for Him to show Himself to a [wo]man whose whole mind and character are in the wrong condition. Just as sunlight, though it has no favourites, cannot be reflected in a dusty mirror as clearly as in a clean one."~ C.S. Lewis
  • "Triumphant prayer is almost impossible where there is neglect of the study of the Word of God."~ Reuben Archer Torrey
  • "God loves with a great love the [wo]man whose heart is bursting with a passion for the impossible." ~ William Booth
  • "Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible."~ Corrie Ten Boom
  • "It was Lord who put into my mind (I could feel His hand upon me) that fact that it would be possible to sail from here to the Indies. All who heard of my project rejected it with laughter, ridiculing me. There is no question that the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit, because He comforted me with rays of marvelous inspiration from the Holy Scriptures." ~ Christopher Columbus
  • "To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible."~ Thomas Aquinas
  • "To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing."~ Martin Luther
  • "When the author walks on the stage the play is over. God is going to invade, all right...something so beautiful to some of us and so terrible to others that none of us will have any choice left? For this time it will be God without will be too late then to choose your side."~ C.S. Lewis
  • "I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God; first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done." ~ Hudson Taylor

  1. I adore these quotes. Christopher Columbus' is so interesting. God's hand is on everything. And of course, my main man C.S. Lewis. I love that you have so many quotes by him. :)
