Notable Quotables

Some of these you will remember from my former blogs, but I really like these quotes and thought I would share them. What are your favorite quotes?


 


"There is weakness, there is frailty; but there is courage also, and honor to be found in men." Boromir (LOTR)


 


"God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars." Martin Luther


 


"I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth." Martin Luther


 


"By a Carpenter mankind was made, and only by that Carpenter can mankind be remade." Desiderius Erasmus


 


"Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave." Martin Luther


 


"Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh." W. H. Auden


 


"Love is an exploding cigar we willingly smoke." Lynda Barry


 


"I pay very little regard...to what any young person says on the subject of marriage. If they profess a disinclination for it, I only set it down that they have not yet seen the right person." Jane Austen (Mansfield Park)

Two of my favorite quotes are from GK Chesterton


There are no boring subjects only disinterested minds.


A nation that refuses to obey the big laws becomes a nation of the small laws.

I read your blog all the time through bloglines. I don't always comment. But I read it all the time.

R U able to give a source for Luther's quote about writing the gospel also on trees, flowers, clouds, and stars. I cannot find the source, even trying to track it in Luther's works. Please post comment on http://jesusrhymetime.blogspot.com
