Some Good Quotes

“Men are not killed by a blow on the extremities… but by an injury to the vital parts. When God purposes to make us die to self, He always touches that which is the very essence of our life. He adapts our cross to each one of us.” – Fénelon

"There was a time when the church was very powerful – in the time when the early Christians rejoiced at being deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society… But the judgment of God is upon the church [today] as never before. If today’s church does not recapture the sacrificial spirit of the early church, it will lose its authenticity, forfeit the loyalty of millions, and be dismissed as an irrelevant social club with no meaning for the 20th century." – Martin Luther King Jr.
