A Quote by William Shakespeare on adversity, truth, value, sermons, and stones

Sweet are the uses of adversity
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head; 
And this our life, exempt from human haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, 
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.
I would not change it

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by Sterling W. Sill on business, failure, heaven, jesus, life, reason, sermons, success, time, and work

In the greatest sermon that was ever preached, the greatest man who ever lived gave the wisest counsel that has ever been given, in which He said, "lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, . . ." (Matthew 6:20.) Laying up earthly treasures is such an exciting process that we spend most of our time working at it. But Jesus pointed out some advantages to treasures in heaven. The moth and the rust cannot get at treasures in heaven quite so easily. Treasures in heaven are more permanent. They are more satisfying. There are only two reasons why we are not as successful as we would like to be in laying up earthly treasures. One is that we sometimes get into the wrong business; and the second reason is that even though we may be in the right business, we do not always work at it effectively. Interestingly enough, these are the same reasons why we fail in laying up treasures in heaven.

A Quote by Robert James McCracken, D.D. on christianity, difficulty, economics, enemies, guidance, humanity, love, men, principles, problems, sermons, and spirituality

The Sermon on the Mount does not provide humanity with a complete guide to personal, social and economic problems. It sets forth spiritual attitudes, moral principles of universal validity, such as " Love your enemies," "Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them," and it leaves to Christians the task-the admittedly difficult task-of applying them in any given situation.
