 "It was strictly forbidden to preach to other prisoners, as it is in 
captive nations today. It was understood that whoever was caught 
doing this received a severe beating. A number of us decided to 
pay the price for the privilege of preaching, so we excepted their 
terms. It was a deal: we preached and they beat us. We were 
happy preaching; they were happy beating us - so everyone was 
happy." - Richard Wurmbrand

"Most Christians don't hear God's voice because we've already 
decided we aren't going to do what He says." - A.W. Tozer

"I can tell how much God you have by how much entertainment 
you need." - A.W. Tozer

"The weakness of so many modern Christians is that they feel too 
much at home in the world. In their effort to achieve restful 
adjustment to unregenerate society they have lost their pilgrim 
character and become an essential part of the very moral order 
against which they are sent to protest. The world recognizes them 
and accepts them for what they are. And this is the saddest thing 
that can be said about them. They are not lonely, but neither are 
they saints." - A.W. Tozer

"O Jesus, our crucified Redeemer, teach us not only to believe on 
Thee, but to abide in Thee, to take Thy Cross not only as the 
ground of our pardon, but also as the law of our life. O teach us to 
love it not only because on it Thou didst bear our curse, but 
because on it we enter into the closest fellowship with Thyself, 
and are crucified with Thee." - Andrew Murray

"Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being 
transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of 
society; it is descending to society's own level, and congratulating 
itself that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly 
accepting its surrender." - A.W. Tozer

Rikkert Zuiderveld: "The greatest difference between Christians and 
the world around them is the building where they spend their time 
sleeping on Sunday."

"The worst torment is that of opportunities lost." - David Wilkerson

"The one thing we learn from history is that we don't learn from 
history." - Leonard Ravenhill

"It is more important that God be glorified then that I be saved!"
 - A.W Tozer

"Until Christ works out in you an inner crucifixion which will cut 
you off from self-infatuation and unite you to God in a deep union 
of love, a thousand Heavens could not give you peace." - F. J. Huegel

"A foolish physician he is, and a most unfaithful friend, that will let 
a sick man die for fear of troubling him; and cruel wretches are we 
to our friends, that will rather suffer them to go quietly to hell, then 
we will anger them, or hazard our reputation with them." - Baxter, Richard

"Are the things you're living for worth Christ dying for?" 
- epitaph of Leonard Ravenhill

"We need more speaking to God about men, than speaking to 
men about God."  - Mother Cobb

"Go empty your head and get your heart filled and you'll be better off."
- A.W Tozer

"Consider this, Christian: that all your trials and troubles, 
calamities and miseries, crosses and losses which you meet in 
this world are all the hell you shall ever have!!"  - Thomas Brooks.
