Sermon Quotes

Attacks

Douglas Adams

He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which.”

Henry Ward Beecher

Every time your enemy fires a curse, you must fire a blessing, and so you are to bombard back and forth with this kind of artillery. The mother grace of all graces is Christian good-will.

 Life Thoughts

Ronald A. Heifetz

When you take “personal” attacks personally, you unwittingly conspire in one of the common ways you can be taken out of action-you make yourself the issue. Attacks may be personal, understand that they are basically attacks on positions you represent and the role you are seeking to play

Leadership on the Line

Thomas a Kempis

For these attacks do not contribute to make us frail but rather show us to be what we are.

Hannah More

Outward attacks and troubles rather fix than unsettle the Christian, as tempests from without only serve to root the oak faster; while an inward canker will gradually rot and decay it.

 

Margaret Thatcher

I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.

Martin Luther

We Christians must be armed and expect every day to be under continuous attack. . . . At such times our only help and comfort is to run here and seize hold of the Lord’s Prayer and speak to God from our heart, “Dear Father, you have commanded me to pray; let me not fall because of temptation.” . . . Otherwise, if you attempt to help yourself by your own thoughts and resources, you will only make the matter worse and give the devil a wider opening.

The Large Catechism

Thomas a Kempis

For these attacks do not contribute to make us frail but rather show us to be what we are.
