Quotable – For Christmas

Posted by on Dec 3, 2018 in Blog | 2 comments

With the Christmas season upon us, I thought I’d look at some Christmas quotes from notable figures.

  • A thousand times in history a baby has become a king, but only once in history did a King become a baby. Anon
  • Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more! Dr Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas
  • How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, His precepts. Benjamin Franklin
  • Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas. Peg Bracken
  • Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love. Hamilton Wright Mabie
  • Christmas is built upon a beautiful and intentional paradox; that the birth of the homeless should be celebrated in every home. G.K.Chesterton, Brave New Family
  • Yet as I read the birth stories about Jesus I cannot help but conclude that though the world may be tilted toward the rich and powerful, God is tilted toward the underdog. Philip Yancey

As always, nice chatting…
