"Love is the only true power, because it is the only thing that does not want power, just as love is the only true wealth because it is the only thing that can afford to give itself away."  Mike Mason

"The straight arrows of truth meet and concur error without turning to fight."  Ellen White

"In every Christian's heart there is a cross and a throne and a Christian is on the throne until he puts himself on the cross, if he refuses the cross he remains on the throne.  Perhaps this is at the bottom of the backsliding and worldliness among many gospel believers today.  We want to be saved but we insist that Christ do all the dying, no cross for us, no dethronement, no dying.  We remain king within the little kingdom of man's soul and wear our tinsel crown with all the pride of a Cesar, but we doom ourselves to shadows and weakness and spiritual sterility."  A.W. Tozer

"By his life, Jesus has shown us God's way of relating to people:   We are to love them recklessly and wholeheartedly, expecting absolutely nothing in return; trusting Him for an inexhaustible supply of love, and strength to endure.   Ellen White

"Who compose the church?  Those who look to the Head, those who seek the Head, those who are joined to the Head.  It is no difference how many members there may be, though we are only one on one side of the earth and another on the other side of the earth; we two members will move together and act together, because the Head, Christ Jesus, actuates both, working in both."   A.T. Jones

"God has never given to any man in his church authority to exercise authority.  That is the difference between the princes of the world and the princes of God.  The princes of this world exercise authority, but without true authority.  The princes of God, having true authority, never exercise authority.   The authority of the truth of God exercises itself."  A.T. Jones

"I had motives for not wanting the world to have meaning, consequently I assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption.  For myself, as no doubt, for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaninglessness is an instrument of liberation.   The liberation I desired was simultaneously liberation from a certain political and economic system (Capitalism) and liberation from a certain system of morality.  We object to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom."  Aldous Huxley, leading Atheist and Evolutionist.

"It is not the fear of punishment, or the hope of everlasting reward, that leads the disciples of Christ to follow Him.  They behold the Savior's matchless love, revealed through His pilgrimage on earth, from the manger of Bethlehem to Calvary's cross, and the sight of Him attracts, it softens and subdues the soul.  Love awakens in the heart of the beholders.  They hear His voice, and they follow Him."   Ellen White

"What speech is to thought, so is Christ to the invisible Father.   He is the manifestation of the Father, and is called the Word of God." Ellen White

"God makes a rainbow out of the elements of a storm."  I'm not sure where I heard this one, but a good quote can stand on it's own, with or without an author.

"By their sins they had separated themselves from God, and in their pride were moving independently of Him.  They felt sufficient in themselves for all things, and realized no need of a higher wisdom to direct their acts.  But the Son of God was surrendered to the Father's will, and dependent upon His power.  So utterly was Christ emptied of self that He made no plans for Himself.  He accepted God's plans for Him, and day by day the Father unfolded His plans.  So should we depend upon God, that our lives may be the simple outworking of His will."  Ellen White

"All grass is greener when there are no fences."   "Love flows out through the cracks of your broken bleeding heart." me / experience
