Churches

If church prelates, past or present, had even an inkling of physiology they'd realize that what they term this inner ugliness creates and nourishes the hearing ear, the seeing eye, the active mind, and energetic body of man and woman, in the same way that dirt and dung at the roots give the plant its delicate leaves and the full-blown rose.
- O'Casey, Sean
Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
The parson knows enough who knows a Duke.
Cowper, William

2.
A full-dressed ecclesiastic is a sort of go-cart of divinity; an ethical automaton. A clerical prig is, in general, a very dangerous as well as contemptible character. The utmost that those who thus habitually confound their opinions and sentiments with the outside coverings of their bodies can aspire to, is a negative and neutral character, like wax-work figures, where the dress is done as much to the life as the man, and where both are respectable pieces of pasteboard, or harmless compositions of fleecy hosiery.
Hazlitt, William

3.
The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
Wotton, Sir Henry

4.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

5.
His creed no parson ever knew, for this was still his simple plan, to have with clergymen to do as little as a Christian can.
Doyle, Sir Francis

6.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Spong, John

7.
The separation of church and state is a source of strength, but the conscience of our nation does not call for separation between men of state and faith in the Supreme Being.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

8.
I'm a priest, not a priestess. Priestess implies mumbo jumbo and all sorts of pagan goings-on. Those who oppose us would love to call us priestesses. They can call us all the names in the world -- it's better than being invisible.
Heyward, Carter

9.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

10.
Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
Graham, Billy

11.
An instinctive taste teaches men to build their churches with spire steeples which point as with a silent finger to the sky and stars.
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor

12.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

13.
He who is near the Church is often far from God.
Proverb, French

14.
I have, alas, only one illusion left, and that is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Smith, Sydney

15.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

16.
There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.
Joyce, James

17.
Wherever we find the Word of God surely preached and heard, and the sacraments administered according to the institution of Christ, there, it is not to be doubted, is a church of God.
Calvin, John

18.
What is wrong with priests and popes is that instead of being apostles and saints, they are nothing but empirics who say I know instead of I am learning, and pray for credulity and inertia as wise men pray for skepticism and activity.
Shaw, George Bernard

19.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

20.
How can a bishop marry? How can he flirt? The most he can say is I will see you in the vestry after service.
Smith, Sydney

21.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Huxley, Aldous

22.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

23.
I believe with all my heart that the Church of Jesus Christ should be a Church of blurred edges.
Carey, George

24.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

25.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

26.
The Christian church is a society of sinners. It is the only society in the world, membership in which is based upon the single qualification that the candidate shall be unworthy of membership.
Morrison, Charles C.

27.
Many are called but few are chosen. There are sayings of Christ which suggest that the Church he came to establish will always be a minority affair.
Norman, Edward

28.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

29.
It is indolence... Indolence and love of ease; a want of all laudable ambition, of taste for good company, or of inclination to take the trouble of being agreeable, which make men clergymen. A clergyman has nothing to do but be slovenly and selfish; read the newspaper, watch the weather, and quarrel with his wife. His curate does all the work and the business of his own life is to dine.
Austen, Jane

30.
One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organizations do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.
Tozer, A. W.

31.
Standards of conduct appropriate to civil society or the workings of a democracy cannot be purely and simply applied to the Church.
Ratzinger, Cardinal Joseph

32.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

33.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

34.
Mass ought to be in Latin, unless you could do it in Greek or Chinese. In fact, any abracadabra that no bloody member of the public or half-educated ape of a clargimint could think he understood.
Pound, Ezra

35.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

36.
If church prelates, past or present, had even an inkling of physiology they'd realize that what they term this inner ugliness creates and nourishes the hearing ear, the seeing eye, the active mind, and energetic body of man and woman, in the same way that dirt and dung at the roots give the plant its delicate leaves and the full-blown rose.
O'Casey, Sean

37.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

38.
The root of almost every schism and heresy from which the Christian Church has suffered, has been because of the effort of men to earn, rather than receive their salvation; and the reason preaching is so commonly ineffective is, that it often calls on people to work for God rather than letting God work through them.
Ruskin, John

39.
We praise Him, we bless Him, we adore Him, we glorify Him, and we wonder who is that baritone across the aisle and that pretty woman on our right who smells of apple blossoms. Our bowels stir and our cod itches and we amend our prayers for the spiritual life with the hope that it will not be too spiritual.
Cheever, John

40.
Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.
Ruskin, John

41.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

42.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

43.
A church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
Nash, L. L.

44.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

45.
She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.
Walker, Alice

46.
It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God's name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost Him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose Him there.
Havner, Vance

47.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

48.
And of all plagues with which mankind are cursed, ecclesiastic tyranny's the worst.
Defoe, Daniel

49.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

50.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Havner, Vance
