Author Quotes

Tal was looking at Hank when he said, Just a moment. I want to hear it one more time. As they watched, Bernice found her way to Hank and Mary. She began to week openly, and spoke some quiet but impassioned words to them. Hank and Mary listened, as did the others nearby, and as they listened, they began to smile. They put their arms around her, they told her about Jesus, and then they began to weep as well. Finally, as the saints were gathered and Bernice was surrounded with loving arms, Hank said the words, Let's pray...

The claws of Truth were painful. The lies tore away like scabs, and John bled there for hours, stifling his cries of pain in the sleeve of his overcoat - the overcoat he'd received from his father.

A little love and attention can go a long way...too bad more people don't realize that.

The depth of a person's character is not measured by his or her physical strength, but by the depth of his or her nobility.

Comfort can be a dangerous thing. You stick around home all the time where it’s safe and nothing ever changes, and before you know it, you get set in your ways and you quit learning, you quit changing, you don’t grow anymore.

The goal is always the same. I want to change people's lives and bring them closer to the Lord in a new way. I want to confront them with an issue.

Don't worry about getting perfect, just keep getting better.

The problem is, if you really want the Truth, then you have to have God along with it.

I like winning, it just takes longer

You want proof there's a God? Look outside, watch a sunset.

If Truth is taken away from us, then Right and Wrong are taken from us as well. If we don't know Right and Wrong, then we can't, we won't control ourselves, but will look to someone else to bring order through brute force and raw power. We will be controlled by a tyrant, and we will no longer be free...

If you've ever been there, you've never forgotten. The feeling is as haunting and familiar as the smell of a junior high school locker room.

Killing one person makes you a murderer. Killing a million people makes you a king. Killing them all makes you God.

Let's be honest: ignoring is acting and nothing more - acting as though the words, or actions of your oppressors don't hurt. You hear the words, you feel the insults, and you bear the blows. You can act deaf and impervious to pain, but the stabs and the arrows pierce you anyway.

Mankind without truth, without God-given morals... has strength... can think... can feel things emotionally – but if he isn't given a good, solid standard for right and wrong, then there's nothing to keep him from using strength and reason and feelings in selfish... even destructive ways... We wonder why people do such evil things, why there's so much violence in the world, why people rob and cheat and betray each other. But when we erase truth from our thinking and say there's no right or wrong except for what each person thinks is right or wrong, well, we get the world we deserve...when there's no truth that applies to everyone, then there's no way to argue for the rightness or wrongness of anything...

Prac­tice doesn’t make per­fect. It makes bet­ter.

Sin is the Monster we love to deny. It is crouching at the door and it wants you, but you must overcome it.

So what do you do for a living? Staying alive is nice, but you can't do that forever. It's how you live the life you have while you have it.

Staying alive is nice, but you can’t do that forever. It’s how you live the life you have while you have it.

Take away truth and people will lie. Scoff at virtue, and betrayal becomes a matter of course.

A truth our socetiy must not lose sight of and that is the sanctity of every human life and the dignity of every individual.

The measure of a man is not his strength; it is the depth of his nobility. The measure of any person is how he or she treats those who are less gifted, less intelligent, and less able. The measure of a Christian is how willing he or she is to reach down and help those who are less fortunate -- to take the strength and advantage they have to help those who have not.
