A Quote by Wendell Phillips on change, christ, christianity, conflict, creation, earth, god, history, science, scientists, and truth

The paleontological evidence before us today clearly demonstrates ordered progressive change with the successive development of new faunal and floral assemblages through the changing epochs of our earth's history. There should be no real conflict between science, which is the search for truth, and Christ's teachings, which I hold to be truth itself. It is only when scientists remove God from creation that the Christian is faced with an irreconcilable situation.

A Quote by unknown on business, chastity, christ, contentment, discretion, family, fatherhood, friendship, god, happiness, hospitality, jesus, needs, providence, purity, rest, reward, saints, study, virtue, work, and world

The true gentleman is God's servant. The world's master and his own man. Virtue is his business, study his recreation. Contentment his rest and happiness his reward. God is his father, Jesus Christ his Savior, the Saints his brethren, and all that need him his friends. Devotion is his chaplain, chastity his chamberlain, sobriety his butler, temperance his work, hospitality his housekeeper, providence his steward, purity his mistress of the house, and discretion his porter, to be let in and out as most fit; thus is his whole family made up of virtue and he is the master of the house.

A Quote by unknown on christ, hope, men, and work

Christ has no hands but our hands, to do his work today. He has no feet but our feet, to lead men in his way. He has no lips but our lips, to tell men how he died; He has no self but ourselves, to bring men to his side. What if our hands are busy, with other work than his? What if our feet are straying where sin's allurement is? What if our lips are saying the things his lips would scorn? How can we hope to help him, and hasten his return?

A Quote by Umberto Eco on behavior, belief, christ, christianity, god, good, interest, laughter, questions, reason, and sons

"But why doesn't the Gospel ever say that Christ laughed?" I asked, for no good reason. "Is Jorge right?" "Legions of scholars have wondered whether Christ laughed. The question doesn't interest me much. I believe he never laughed, because, omniscient as the son of God had to be, he knew how we Christians would behave. . . ."

A Quote by Truman G. Madsen on christ, divinity, faith, god, jesus, justice, life, needs, people, salvation, truth, vision, work, and world

I have faith that if we caught hold of God's living candle on that truth and went out into the world-I don't care [what vocation] -just out in the world being true to the vision, we would not need to defend the cause of Jesus Christ. People would come and ask; "Where have you found the radiance that I sense in your eyes and in your face? How come you don't get carried away with the world?" And we would answer that the work of salvation is the glorious work of Jesus Christ. But it is also the glorious work of the uncovering and recovering of your own latent divinity.

A Quote by Traditional on angels, birds, christ, darkness, earth, god, heart, lies, music, sons, and stability

Whence Comes This Rush of Wings? Whence comes this rush of wings afar, Following straight the Noël star? Birds from the woods in wondrous flight, Bethlehem seek this Holy Night. "Tell us, ye birds, why come ye here, Into this stable, poor and drear?" "Hast'ning we seek the new-loom King, And all our sweetest music bring." Hark! how the greenfinch bears his part, Philomel, too, with tender heart, Chants from her leafy dark retreat, Re, mi, fa, sol, in accents sweet. Angels and shepherds, birds of the sky, Come where the Son of God cloth lie; Christ on earth with man cloth dwell, Join in the shout, "Noël, Noël!"
