The only way to keep a broken vessel full is to keep it always under the tap.

If you live wrong you can’t die right.

If you have no joy, there’s a leak in your Christianity somewhere.

Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you an automobile.

Try praising your wife, even if it does frighten her at first.

Better die an old maid, sister, than marry the wrong man.

Your reputation is what people say about you. Your character is what God and your wife know about you.

Personal liberty is not personal license.

I dare not exercise personal liberty if it infringes on the liberty of others.

Hell is the highest reward that the devil can offer you for being a servant of his.

Give your face to God, and He will put his shine on it.

Conversion is a complete surrender to Jesus. It’s a willingness to do what he wants you to do.

Temptation is the devil looking through the keyhole. Yielding is opening the door and inviting him in.

Deathbed repentance is burning the candle of life in the service of the devil, and then blowing the smoke into the face of God.

I challenge you to show me where the saloon has ever helped business, education, church, morals or anything we hold dear.

After all is said that can be said upon the liquor traffic, its influence is degrading upon the individual, the family, politics and business, and upon everything that you touch in this old world.

One reason sin flourishes is that it is treated like a cream puff instead of a rattlesnake.

The Bible will always be full of things you cannot understand, as long as you will not live according to those you can understand.

If you took no more care of yourself physically than spiritually, you’d be just as dried up physically as you are spiritually.

They tell me that I rub the fur the wrong way. I don’t; let the cat turn around.

The reason you don’t like the Bible, you old sinner, is because it knows all about you.

I believe that a long step toward public morality will have been taken when sins are called by their right names.

I don’t believe there are devils enough in hell to pull a boy out of the arms of a godly mother.

Be careful, father, or while you are taking one lap around the devil’s track your boy will make six.

The Lord is not compelled to use theologians. He can take snakes, sticks or anything else, and use them for the advancement of his cause.
