Where sin is viewed, and other quotes

The posting of quotes by human authors does not constitute agreement with either the quotes or their sources. (I try to confirm the sources that I give, but may miss on occasion; please verify when possible.)

"Where sin is viewed superficially, it is dealt with superficially." -- Erwin W. Lutzer

"One of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain." -- James Baldwin

"I would rather walk with a friend in the dark than walk alone in the light." -- Helen Keller

I would rather walk in the dark with God, than walk alone in the light;
I would rather walk with Him by faith, than walk alone by sight.
“He Knows,” The Christian Pioneer, 1876

"The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone." -- 
Harriet Beecher Stowe

As life runs on, the road grows strange
With faces new, and near the end
The milestones into headstones change,
’Neath every one a friend.
“Sixty-Eighth Birthday,” by James Russell Lowell

"It’s hard; but we have Jesus. If we can’t, who can?" -- Heard

"Faith is a leap into the light, not a step into the darkness." -- Reinhard Bonnke (and others, probably; sometimes, "Faith is not taking a leap into the dark, but taking a step into the light.")

"And if you must cheat, then please cheat death. Because I couldn’t live a day without you." -- Leap Year

"Strength and courage aren’t always measured in medals and victories. They are measured in the struggles they overcome. The strongest people aren’t always the people who win, but the people who don’t give up when they lose." --  Ashley Hodgeson
