The Good News [is] borne by our risen Messiah who chose not one race, who chose not one country, who chose not one language, who chose not one tribe, [but] who chose all of humankind!
To be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.
I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended.
After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.
The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
Difficulties break some men but make others.
It always seems impossible until it’s done.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
I like friends who have independent minds because they tend to make you see problems from all angles.
Each Easter marks the rebirth of our faith. It marks the victory of our risen Saviour over the torture of the cross and the grave. Easter marks the rebirth of the resurrected Messiah, who without arms, without soldiers, without police and covert special forces, without hit squads of bands of vigilantes, overcame the mightiest state during His time.
Our Messiah... came to us in the form of a mortal man, but who by His suffering and crucifixion attained immortality. Our Messiah, born like an outcast in a stable, and executed like a criminal on the cross. Our Messiah, whose life bears testimony to the truth that there is no shame in poverty; those who should be ashamed are they who impoverish others. Whose life testifies to the truth that there is no shame in being persecuted; those who should be shamed are they who persecute others. Whose life proclaims the truth that there is no shame in being conquered; those who should be ashamed are they who conquer others. Whose testifies to the truth that there is no shame in being dispossessed; those who should be ashamed are they who dispossess others. Whose life testifies to the truth that there is no shame in being oppressed; those who should be ashamed are they who oppress others.
I would like to be remembered not as anyone unique or special, but as part of a great team…
