The deeper men go into life, the deeper is their conviction that this life is not all. It is an unfinished symphony. A day may round out an insect's life, and a bird or a beast needs no tomorrow. Not so with him who knows that he is related to God and has felt the power of an endless life. Henry Ward Beecher

Trouble teaches men how much there is in manhood. Henry Ward Beecher
Download Wallpaper:

Whenever education and refinement carry us away from the common people, they are growing towards selfishness, which is the monster evil of the world.

Refinement that carries us away from our fellow people is not God's refinement. Henry Ward Beecher

Download Wallpaper:

We rejoice in God since he has taught us that every thing which is true in us, is but a faint expression of what is in him. And thus all our joys become to us the echo of higher joys, and our very life is as a dream of that nobler life, to which we shall awaken when we die. Henry Ward Beecher

Download Wallpaper:

Earthly love is a brief and penurious stream, which only flows in spring, with a long summer drought. The change from a burning desert, treeless, springless, drear, to green fields and blooming orchards in June, is slight in comparison with that from the desert of this world's affection to the garden of God, where there is perpetual, tropical luxuriance of blessed love. Henry Ward Beecher

God washes the eyes by tears until they can behold the invisible land where tears shall come no more. O love!

Henry Ward Beecher

I think half the troubles for which men go slouching in prayer to God are caused by their intolerable pride. Many of our cares are but a morbid way of looking at our privileges. We let our blessings get mouldy, and then call them curses. Henry Ward Beecher

What profusion is there in His work! When trees blossom there is not a single breastpin, but a whole bosom full of gems; and of leaves they have so many suits that they can throw them away to the winds all summer long. What unnumbered cathedrals has He reared in the forest shades, vast and grand, full of curious carvings, and haunted evermore by tremulous music; and in the heavens above, how do stars seem to have flown out of His hand faster than sparks out of a mighty forge! Henry Ward Beecher

If anyone, then, asks me the meaning of our flag, I say to him - it means just what Concord and Lexington meant; what Bunker Hill meant; which was, in short, the rising up of a valiant young people against an old tyranny to establish the most momentous doctrine that the world had ever known - the right of men to their own selves and to their liberties. Henry Ward Beecher

Leaves die, but trees do not. They only undress. Henry Ward Beecher
Download Wallpaper:

There are many persons of combative tendencies, who read for ammunition, and dig out of the Bible iron for balls. They read, and they find nitre and charcoal and sulphur for powder. They read, and they find cannon. They read, and they make portholes and embrasures. And if a man does not believe as they do, they look upon him as an enemy, and let fly the Bible at him to demolish him. So men turn the word of God into a vast arsenal, filled with all manner of weapons, offensive and defensive. Henry Ward Beecher

There is an ugly kind of forgiveness in this world,-a kind of hedgehog forgiveness, shot out like quills.

Henry Ward Beecher

Rest, oh, weary heart! Henry Ward Beecher
