Quotation Saturday

Matt. 12: 34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.


“The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”
~ Søren Kierkegaard

“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.”
~ Mother Teresa

“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”
~ St. Francis of Assisi

“Prayer is not an old woman's idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi


“Because God has made us for Himself, our hearts are restless until they rest in Him.”
~ Augustine of Hippo

“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
~ Psalm 28:7 NIV

“Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.”
~ Homer, The Iliad

A heart without words is just a heart. Words with a heart, are just words. Sincere words of the heart become a prayer to the wounded.


“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche

“Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
~ Cassandra Clare

“Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.”
~ Rumi

“Every heart has a soul. Every soul has a heart. But he who is without compassion and love for his brother is just a body with a functioning organ.”
~ Joni

Rom. 14: 10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ
