Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.— Peter Marshall
The most restlessness Peter Marshall quotes to discover and learn by heart
Let us not be content to wait and see what will happen, but give us the determination to make the right things happen.
God will not permit any troubles to come upon us, unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty.
A different world cannot be built by indifferent people.
Lord, where we are wrong, make us willing to change; where we are right, make us easy to live with.
Unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
Most of us know perfectly well what we ought to do; our trouble is that we do not want to do it.
If God does not enter your kitchen, there is something wrong with your kitchen.
If you can't take God into your recreation, there is something wrong with your play. We all believe in the God of the heroic. What we need most these days is the God of the humdrum, the commonplace, the everyday.
The use of the right word, the exact word, is the difference between a pencil with a sharp point and a thick crayon.
Let us not fool ourselves - without Christianity, without Christian education, without the principles of Christ inculcated into young life, we are simply rearing pagans.
The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration.
Anarchism as a political philosophy seeks to dissolve all forms of authority and power, and if possible, wishes their complete abolition.
Godly enthusiasm is not a fire of our own kindling.
..If a man, however, has caught fire, let me not quench the Spirit by dampening the ardor of his pure devotion. Enthusiasm is not contrary to reason; it is reason - on fire.
The resurrection never becomes a fact of experience until the risen Lord lives in the heart of the believer.
Whatever its future success as a historical movement, anarchism will remain a fundamental part of human experience, for the drive for freedom is one of our deepest needs and the vision of a free society is one of our oldest dreams. Neither can ever be fully repressed; both will outlive all rulers and their States.
It is better to fail in a cause that will ultimately succeed than to succeed in a cause that will ultimately fail.
Get off, you look ugly (to a blood splattered player during a game)
Give according to your income lest God make your income according to your giving.
Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for -- because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as Americans. The time is come - it is now - when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship. America's future depends upon her accepting and demonstrating God's government.
Christianity is a power religion. Christ has the power to re-create men from the inside out, as every man who has ever met Him knows.
The proof of how real Jesus knew hell to be is that He came to earth to save us from it.
No tabloid will ever print the startling news that the mummified body of Jesus of Nazareth has been discovered in old Jerusalem. Christians have no carefully embalmed body enclosed in a glass case to worship. Thank God, we have an empty tomb. The glorious fact that the empty tomb proclaims to us is that life for us does not stop when death comes. Death is not a wall, but a door.
The aim is not therefore to liberate some 'essential self' by throwing off the burden of government and the State, but to develop the self in creative and voluntary relations with others.
Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand forbecause unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
In the name of Jesus Christ, who was never in a hurry, we pray, O God, that You will slow us down, for we know that we live too fast. With all of eternity before us, make us take time to live---time to get acquainted with You, time to enjoy Your blessings, and time to know each other.
God hasn't given up on you. He can still do great things for you, in you, and through you. God is ready and waiting and able. What about you, and me?
Enthusiasm is not contrary to reason; it is reason - on fire.
Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
