Sermon Quotes

Conscience

John Quincy Adams

A stout heart, a clear conscience, and never despair

Bono

Distance does not decide who is your brother and who is not. The church is going to have to become the conscience of the free market if it’s to have any meaning in this world – and stop being its apologist.

G.K. Chesterton

A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.

John Donne

Let no man be disheartened nor discouraged if he have brought a good conscience and faithful labor to the service of the Lord. Let him not think his wages the worse paid if God do mingle bodily sickness, temporal losses, personal disgraces, with his labors. Let him not think that God should not do thus to them that wear out themselves in his service for the best part of our wages is adversity, because that gives us a true fast and a right value of our prosperity. The prophet Jeremiah had it; the best of his rank must.

Benjamin Franklin

A good conscience is a continual Christmas.

 

John Henry Newman

Steven Wright

A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

Ravi Zacharias

We have a right to believe whatever we want, but not everything we believe is right.

Abraham Lincoln

I desire to conduct the affairs of this administration in such a way that if at the end, when I come to lay down the reins of power, I have lost every other friend on earth, I shall have at least one friend left and that friend shall be down inside of me.
