Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#1. We prove the value we attach to things by the time we devote to them. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#2. True happiness is always self-forgetful: it loses itself in the object of its joy. As the joy of the Holy Ghost fills us, and we rejoice in God the Holy One, through our Lord Jesus Christ. [. . .]

Love and joy ever keep company. Love, denying and forgetting itself for the brethren and the lost, living in them, finds the joy of God. 'The kingdom of God is joy in the Holy Ghost. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#3. The end and design of all that is written in Scripture is to call us back from the spirit of Satan, the flesh, and the world, to full dependence on and obedience to the Spirit of God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#4. Our private and public prayer are our chief expression of our relation to God: it is in them chiefly that our waiting upon God must be exercised. If our waiting begin by quieting the activities of nature, and being still before God; if it bows and seeks to see God in His universal and almighty operation, alone able and always ready to work all good; if it yields itself to Him in the assurance that He is working and will work in us; if it maintains the place of humility and stillness, and surrenders until God's Spirit has quickened the faith that He will perfect His work: it will indeed become the strength and the joy of the soul. Life will become one deep blessed cry: "I have waited for Thy salvation, O Lord." "My soul, wait thou only upon God #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#5. Precious lessons that Jesus has to teach us this day. We seek God's gifts: God wants to give us HIMSELF first. We think of prayer as the power to draw down good gifts from heaven; Jesus as the means to draw ourselves up to God. #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#7. The parable teaches us the nature of that union. The connection between the vine and the branch is a living one. No external, temporary union will suffice; no work of man can effect it: the branch, whether an original or an engrafted one, is such only by the Creator's own work, in virtue of which the life, the sap, the fatness, and the fruitfulness of the vine communicate themselves to the branch. And just so it is with the believer too. His union with his Lord is no work of human wisdom or human will, but an act of God, by which the closest and most complete life-union is effected between the Son of God and the sinner. "God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts." The same Spirit which dwelt and still dwells in the Son, becomes the life of the believer; in the unity of that one Spirit, and the fellowship of the same life which is in Christ, he is one with Him. As between the vine and branch, it is a life-union that makes them one. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#8. Let every one then that has received this new life, cultivate this great conviction: it is eternal life that works in me: it works with Divine power: I can and shall become what God will have me be: Christ Himself is my life: I have to receive Him every day as my life given by God to me, and He shall be my life in full power. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#9. In the light of His example we can see, in the faith of His power we too can prove, that suffering is to God's child the token of the Father's love, and the channel of His richest blessing. [ ... ]
Suffering is the way of the rent veil, the new and living way Jesus walked in and opened for us. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#10. The effective prayer of faith comes from a life given up to the will and the love of God. Not as a result of what I try to be when praying, but because of what I am when I'm not praying, is my prayer answered by God. All #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#11. And this is the way to live as children of God: as many as receive Him, to them gives He the power to become children of God. This holds true, not only of conversion and regeneration, but of every day of my life. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#12. No man can expect to make progress in holiness who is not often and long alone with God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#13. His humility became our salvation. His salvation is our humility. The life of those who are saved, the saints, must bear this stamp of deliverance from sin and full restoration to their original state; their whole relationship to God and to man marked by an all-pervading humility. Without this there can be no true abiding in God's presence or experience of His favor and the power of His Spirit; without this no abiding faith or love or joy or strength. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Watchman Nee
#14. Andrew Murray once said that what the church and individuals have to dread is the inordinate activity of the soul with its power of mind and will. F. B. Meyer declared that had he not known about the dividing of spirit and soul, he could not have imagined what his spiritual life would have been. Many others, such as Otto Stockmayer, Jessie Penn-Lewis, Evan Roberts, Madame Guyon, have given the same testimony. #Quote by Watchman Nee
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#15. And God is meant to be the home of our souls. Christ came into the world to bring us back to God, and unless we take Christ for what God intended we should, our religion will always be a divided one. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#16. The complaints of many Christians as to lack of joy and strength, as to failure and want of growth, are simply owing to this - the place God gave Holiness in His call they have not given it in their response. God and they have never yet come to an agreement on this. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#17. [T]he elements of holiness in us are these, each corresponding to some special aspect of God's holiness: deep Restfulness (ch. 3), humble Reverence (ch. 4), entire Surrender (ch. 5), joyful Adoration (ch. 6), simple Obedience (ch. 7). These all prepare for the Divine Indwelling (ch. 8). [ ... ]
It is simply impossible for God to dwell or rule when self is on the throne. [ ... ]
Just when we see that there is nothing in us to admire or rest in, God sees in us everything to admire and to rest in, because there is room for Himself. [ ... ]
Lowliness and holiness. Keep fast hold of the intimate connection. Lowliness is taking the place that becomes me; holiness, giving God the place that becomes Him. If I be nothing before Him, and God be all to me, I am in the sure path of holiness. Lowliness is holiness, because it gives all the glory to God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#18. By His death He proved that He possessed life only to hold it, and to spend it, for God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#19. The fruit of the Spirit is love. Why? Because nothing but love can expel and conquer our selfishness. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#20. A soul filled with large thoughts of the Vine will be a strong branch, and will abide confidently in Him. Be much occupied with Jesus, and believe much in Him, as the True Vine. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#21. It is only the fully surrendered heart that can fully trust God for all that He has promised. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#22. Let us, at the very commencement of our meditations, admit that there is nothing so natural to man, nothing so insidious and hidden from our sight, nothing so difficult and dangerous, as pride. Let us feel that [as if] nothing but a very determined and persevering waiting on God and Christ will discover [show] how lacking we are in the grace of humility, and how impotent to obtain what we seek. Let us study the character of Christ until our souls are filled with the love and admiration of his lowliness. And let us believe that, when we are broken down under a sense of our pride, and our impotence to cast it out, Jesus Christ himself will come in to impart this grace too, as a part of his wondrous life within us. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#23. Dutch) language. I pray still more earnestly that He would, #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#24. Faith is nothing other than the certitude that God speaks truth. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#25. A soul cannot seek close fellowship with God, or attain the abiding consciousness of waiting on Him all the day, without a very honest and entire surrender to all His will. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#26. Never think of the riches of wisdom and knowledge hidden in Jesus as treasures without a key, or of your way as a path without a light. Jesus, your wisdom, is guiding you in the right way, even when you do not see it. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#27. Therefore, let us put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering; and let us prove our Christlikeness not only in our zeal for saving the lost but also in our relationships with others - forbearing and forgiving one another, even as the Lord forgave us. Let #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#28. You are called to likeness with Christ. Oh, how many Christians strive after this part and that part of the likeness of Christ, and forget the root of the whole! What is the root of all? That Christ gave Himself up utterly to God, and His Kingdom and glory. He gave His life, that God's Kingdom might be established. Do you the same to-day and give your life to God to be every moment a living sacrifice, and the Kingdom will come with power into your heart. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#30. know the law of human nature: acts produce habits, habits breed dispositions, dispositions form the will, and the rightly-formed will is character. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#31. The only hope of a decreasing self is an increasing Christ." F. B. MEYER #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#32. Christ Jesus said: "I am the Vine, ye are the branches." In other words: "I, the living One who have so completely given myself to you, am the Vine. You cannot trust me too much. I am the Almighty Worker, full of a divine life and power." You are the branches of the Lord Jesus Christ. If there is in your heart the consciousness that you are not a strong, healthy, fruit-bearing branch, not closely linked with Jesus, not living in Him as you should be - then listen to Him say: "I am the Vine, I will receive you, I will draw you to myself, I will bless you, I will strengthen you, I will fill you with my Spirit. I, the Vine, have taken you to be my branches, I have given myself utterly to you; children, give yourselves utterly to me. I have surrendered myself as God absolutely to you; I became man and died for you that I might be entirely yours. Come and surrender yourselves entirely to be mine. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#33. Promises, is very much hidden. While trusting in their Savior for pardon and for help, and seeking to some extent to obey Him, they have hardly realized to what closeness of union, to what intimacy #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#34. Unfaithful in prayer, weak in the working of the Spirit, its witness to Christ a mere formality, and unfaithful to its worldwide mission - such are the marks of a powerless church. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#35. The power to believe a promise depends entirely on our faith in the one who promises. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray

created, so truly by that same power must God every moment maintain. #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#38. The place of private prayer is the key, the strategic position, where decisive victory is obtained. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#39. Jesus Christ is able, by His divine grace, to prevent the power of self from ever asserting itself or gaining the upper hand; Jesus Christ is willing to become the life of the soul; Jesus Christ is willing to teach us so to follow Him, and to have heart and life set upon Him alone, that He shall ever and always be the light of our souls. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#40. The presence and the power of the glorified Christ will come to them that are of a humble spirit. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#41. Humility is, nothing but that simple consent of the creature to let God be all, in virtue of which it surrenders itself to His working alone. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#42. Let us never be afraid to be still before God; we shall then carry that stillness into our work; and when we go to church on Sunday, or to the prayer-meeting on week-days, it will be with the one desire that nothing may stand betwixt us and God, and that we may never be so occupied with hearing and listening as to forget the presence of God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#43. In linking holy and without blemish (or without blame) so closely, the Holy Spirit would have led us to seek for the embodiment of holiness as a spiritual power in the blamelessness of practice and of daily life. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#44. Here is the life of holiness as the Thrice Holy gives it: the Father, the first, the Holy One, making holy; the Son, the second, His Holy One, in whom we are; the Spirit, the third, who dwells in us, and through whom we abide in Christ, and Christ in us. Thus it is that the Thrice Holy makes us holy. [ ... ]
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, (2 Peter 3:11, KJV). #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#45. Humiliation is the only ladder to honoring God's Kingdom. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#46. Answered prayer is the interchange of love between the Father and His child. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#47. It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life." ... "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life." JOHN 6:63, 68 (NKJV) #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#48. Faith finds strength, not in the thought of what you will do, but in the changeless faithfulness and love of Christ, who once again helps and assures you that those who wait on Him shall not be ashamed. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#49. Let us look upward and look inward, in the faith of the Son and the Spirit, and God will show us that every word written in the Book of the Covenant is not only true, but that it can be made spirit and truth within us, and in our daily life. This can indeed be. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#50. Some receive Christ in terms of the forgiveness of sin and the hope of heaven, yet know little of His fullness and the wealth that is to be found in Him. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#51. the Christian life has suffered where believers have not been guided to see that even in our relationships as creatures, nothing is more natural and beautiful and blessed than to be nothing in order that God may be everything. It needs to be made clear that it is not sin that humbles but grace. It is the soul occupied with God in His wonderful glory as Creator and Redeemer that will truly take the lowest place before Him. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#52. I spoke of an Army on the point of entering an enemy's territories. Answering the question as to the cause of delay: 'Waiting for supplies.' The answer might also have been: 'Waiting for instructions, 'Waiting for orders.' If the last dispatch had not been received, with the final orders of the commander in chief, the army dared not move. Even so in the Christian life - as deep as the need of waiting for supplies is that of waiting for instructions. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#53. Nothing but the presence of God can reveal and expel self. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew   Murray
#54. There can be no good but what God works; to wait upon God, and have the heart filled with faith in His working, and in that faith to pray for His mighty power to come down, is our only wisdom. Oh for the eyes of our heart to be opened to see God working in ourselves and in others, and to see how blessed it is to worship and just to wait for His salvation! #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#55. The giver is more than the gift; God is more than the blessing. And our being kept waiting on Him is the only way for our learning to find our life and joy in Himself. Oh, if God's children only knew what a glorious God they have, and what a privilege it is to be linked in fellowship with Him, then they would rejoice in Him! Even when He keeps them waiting, they will learn to understand better than ever. "Therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you." His waiting will be the highest proof of His graciousness. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#56. What is the reason that many thousands of Christian workers in the world have not a greater influence? Nothing save this - the prayerlessness of their service. In the midst of all their zeal in the study and in the work of the Church, of all their faithfulness in preaching and conversation with the people, they lack that ceaseless prayer which has attached to it the sure promise of the Spirit and the power from on high. It is nothing but the sin of prayerlessness which is the cause of the lack of a powerful spiritual life! #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#58. Every providence is God's will; whatever happens, meet God in it in humble worship. Every precept is God's will; meet God in it with loving obedience. Every promise is God's will; meet God in it with full trust. A life in the will of God is rest and strength and blessing. [ ... ]
The will of God must first live in us, if it is to be done by us. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#59. God is a wise husbandman, who waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it (James 5:7). He cannot gather the fruit until it is ripe. He knows when we are spiritually ready to receive the blessing to our profit and His glory. Waiting in the sunshine of His love is what will ripen the soul for His blessing. Waiting under the cloud of trial, that breaks in showers of blessing, is as necessary. Be assured that if God waits longer than you could wish, it is only to make the blessing doubly precious. God waited four thousand years, until the fullness of time, before He sent His Son. Our times are in His hands. He will avenge His elect speedily. He will make haste for our help and not delay one hour too long. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#60. Advance in consecration is conformity to the likeness of Jesus, which affects our dispositions and our habits. The reason I mention disposition and habit is that it is possible to speak of walking in the Spirit while there is still evidence of self. True humility will manifest itself in daily life. The one who has it will take the form of a servant. It is possible to speak of fellowship with a despised and rejected Jesus and of bearing His cross, while the meek and lowly Lamb of God is not seen and rarely sought. The Lamb of God means two things: meekness and death. Let us seek to receive Him in both forms. What a hopeless task if we had to do the work ourselves! Nature never can overcome nature, not even with the help of grace. Self can never cast out self, even in the regenerate man. Praise God! The work has been done, finished, and perfected forever. The death of Jesus, once and for all, is our death to self. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by D.L. Moody
#61. When I look back upon my own religious experience," says Andrew Murray, "or round upon the Church of Christ in the world, I stand amazed at the thought of how little humility is sought after as the distinguishing feature of the discipleship of Jesus. In preaching and living, in the daily intercourse of the home and social life, in the more special fellowship with Christians, in the direction and performance of work for Christ - alas! how much proof there is that humility is not esteemed the cardinal virtue, the only root from which the graces can grow, the one indispensable condition of true fellowship with Jesus. #Quote by D.L. Moody
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#62. Humility, the place of entire dependence on God, is the first duty and the highest virtue of the creature, and the root of every virtue. And so pride, or the loss of this humility, is the root of every sin and evil. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#63. Dear God, your Word has made what you require of us so perfectly clear: you desire a clean heart and loving obedience. Purify my heart by removing all iniquity from my life by the power of your Holy Spirit. I desire to be wholly transformed by your indwelling presence. I want to be with you every moment, and ask that you would give me the happy satisfaction of being used by you. Amen. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#64. Brother, the act of faith, by which you accept and enter this life in the New Covenant, is not commonly an act of power, but often of weakness and fear and much trembling. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#65. If there is one thought with regard to the Church of Christ, which at times comes to me with overwhelming sorrow; if there is one thought in regard to my own life of which I am ashamed; if there is one thought of which I feel that the Church of Christ has not accepted it and not grasped it; if there is one thought which makes me pray to God: "Oh, teach us by Thy grace, new things" - it is the wonderful power that prayer is meant to have in the kingdom. [ ... ] And that is the law of the kingdom - the King upon the throne, the servants upon the footstool. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#66. It is not until Christians study the humility of Jesus as the very essence of His redemption, as the only true relationship to the Father, that the terrible lack of actual, heavenly humility will become a burden and a sorrow. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew   Murray
#67. The one object God had in making you a branch is that Christ may through you bring life to men. Your personal salvation, your business and care for your family, are entirely subordinate to this. Your first aim in life, your first aim every day, should be to know how Christ desires to carry out His purpose in you. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#68. It is not the law, and not the book, not the knowledge of what is right, that works obedience, but the personal influence of God and His living fellowship. And even so it is not the knowledge of what God has promised, but the presence of God Himself as the Promiser, that awakens faith and trust in prayer. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#69. The Spirit must be honored not only as the author of a new life but also as the leader and director of our entire walk. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#70. Every one must have some solitary spot where he can be alone with his God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#71. What intimacy of fellowship, to what wondrous oneness of life and interest, He invited them when He said, "Abide in me." This is not only an unspeakable loss to themselves, but the Church and the world suffer in what they lose. If we ask the reason why those who have indeed accepted the Savior, and been made partakers of the renewing of the Holy Ghost, #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#72. And all the branch possesses belongs to the vine. The branch does not exist for itself, but to bear fruit that can proclaim the excellence of the vine: it has no reason of existence except to be of service to the vine. Glorious image of the calling of the believer, and the entireness of his consecration to the service of his Lord. #Quote by Andrew Murray

#74. Believer! study the humility of Jesus. This is the secret, the hidden root of thy redemption. Sink down into it deeper day by day. #Quote by Andrew Murray

#75. It is only into the thirst of an empty soul that the streams of living waters flow. Ever thirsting is the secret of never thirsting. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by W. Phillip Keller
#76. Looking back over my own life I here declare without apology that it is the study of God's Word, year after year, close communion with Christ, and great books that have nourished my soul in wondrous ways. Such authors as Fenelon, Henry Drummond, F. B. Meyer, G. Campbell Morgan, Martyn Lloyd Jones, A. W. Tozer, Hannah Whitehall Smith Oswald Chambers, Andrew Murray and John Stott have each, with their own special insights, enriched my life beyond measure. #Quote by W. Phillip Keller
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#77. Humility is the proper estimate of oneself. CHARLES SPURGEON #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#78. The truth is this: Pride must die in you or nothing of heaven can live in you. Under the banner of the truth, give yourself up to the meek and humble spirit of the holy Jesus. Humility must sow the seed or there can be no reaping in heaven. Look not at pride only as an unbecoming temper, nor at humility only as a decent virtue: for the one is death and the other is life; the one is hell and the other is heaven. So much as you have of pride within you, you have of the fallen angel alive in you; so much as you have of true humility, so much you have of the Lamb of God within you. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#79. It is important that we know who Christ is, especially the chief characteristic that is the root and essence of His character as our Redeemer. There can be but one answer: it is His humility. What is the Incarnation but His heavenly humility, His emptying himself and becoming man? What is His life on earth but humility; His taking the form of a servant? And what is His atonement but humility? "He humbled himself and became obedient to death." And what is His ascension and His glory but humility exalted to the throne and crowned with glory? "He humbled himself ... therefore God exalted Him to the highest place. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#80. If conscience is to do its work and the contrite heart is to feel its proper remorse, it is necessary for each individual to confess his sin by name. The confession must be intensely personal. In a meeting of ministers, probably no single sin should be acknowledged with deeper shame than the sin of prayerlessness. Each one of us needs to confess that we are guilty of this. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#81. As a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth you. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#82. The sooner I learn to forget myself in the desire that He may be glorified, the richer will be the blessing that prayer will bring to myself. No one ever loses by what he sacrifices to the Father. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#83. The parable teaches us the object of the union. The branches are for fruit and fruit alone. "Every branch that beareth not fruit He taketh away." The branch needs leaves for the maintenance of its own life, and the perfection of its fruit: the fruit itself it bears to give away to those around. As the believer enters into his calling as a branch, he sees that he has to forget himself, and to live entirely for his fellow-men. To love them, to seek for them, and to save them, Jesus came: for this every branch on the Vine has to live as much as the Vine itself. It is for fruit, much fruit, that the Father has made us one with Jesus. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#84. Why should a Christian be called upon always to deny himself, his own feeling, and will, and pleasure? Why must he part with his life - that life to maintain which a man is prepared to make any sacrifice? Why should a man hate and lose his life? The answer is very simple. It is because that life is so completely under the power of sin and death that it has to be utterly denied and sacrificed. The self-life must be wholly taken away to make room for the life of God. He that would have the full, the overflowing life of God, must utterly deny and lose his own life. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#85. Fear and hope are generally thought to be in conflict with each other, in the presence and worship of God they are found side by side in perfect and beautiful harmony. And this because in God Himself all apparent contradictions are reconciled. Righteousness and peace, judgment and mercy, holiness and love, infinite power and infinite gentleness, a majesty that is exalted above all heaven, and a condescension that bows very low, meet and kiss each other. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#86. When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. ACTS 4:13 #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#87. The extent of our love to the Lord is shown by the way we obey His commands. Love does all that it can to make the loved one happy. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#88. Do not try to stir and arouse faith from within. How often I have tried to do that, and made a fool of myself! You cannot stir up faith from the depths of your heart. Leave your heart, and look into the face of Christ, and listen to what He tells you about how He will keep you. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#89. It is the one who does what God commands to whom God can entrust His work, whom God can use to be a type of savior to others. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#90. Humility is nothing but the disappearance of self in the vision that God is all. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#91. We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the Heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#92. That of His great goodness He would make known to you, and take from your heart, every kind and form and degree of Pride, whether it be from evil spirits, or your own corrupt nature; and that He would awaken in you the deepest depth and truth of that Humility, which can make you capable of His light and Holy Spirit. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#93. Faith and humility are at their root one, and that we can never have more of true faith than we have of true humility. It is possible to have strong intellectual convictions and assurance of the truth while pride is still in the heart, but it makes living faith, which has power with God, impossible. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#94. God is love;' Creation is the outflow of love. Redemption is the sacrifice and the triumph of love. Holiness is the fire of love. The beauty of the life of Jesus is love. All we enjoy of the Divine we owe to love. Our holiness is not God's is not Christ's, if we do not love.
[ ... Again, faith works by love]:
"For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love" (Galatians 5:6, KJV).
Faith has all its worth from love, from the love of God, whenever it draws and drinks, and the love to God and man which streams out of it. Let us be strong in faith, then shall we abound in love. #Quote by Andrew Murray

#97. Lord! teach me to tarry with Thee in the school, and give Thee time to train me. May a deep sense of my ignorance, of the wonderful privilege and power of prayer, of the need of the Holy Spirit as the Spirit of prayer, lead me to cast away my thoughts of what I think I know, and make me kneel before Thee in true teachableness and poverty of spirit. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#98. The highest glory of the creature is in being only a vessel, to receive and enjoy and show forth the glory of God. It can do this only as it is willing to be nothing in itself, that God may be all. Water always fills first the lowest places. The lower, the emptier a man lies before God, the speedier and the fuller will be the inflow of the diving glory. #Quote by Andrew Murray

#100. I will not learn it until I realize that "God is love," and to claim and receive it as an indwelling power for self-sacrifice. I will not love until I begin to see that my glory, my blessedness, is to be like God and like Christ, in giving up everything in myself for my fellow-men. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#101. This is the love of God; not that He gives us something, but that He gives us some one - a living person - not one or another blessing, but Him in whom is all life and blessing - Jesus Himself. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#102. In the Gospel story we find five great points of special importance; the birth, the life on earth, the death, the resurrection, and the ascension. In these we have what an old writer has called "the process of Jesus Christ;" the process by which He became what He is to-day
our glorified King, and our life. In all this life process we must be made like unto Him. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#103. How different our standard is from Christ's. We ask how much a man gives. Christ asks how much he keeps. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#104. It is that which made the angels, Jesus himself, and the holiest saints humble. It is the first and chief mark of the relationship of the creature to God, of the Son to the Father - it is the secret of blessedness, the desire to be nothing, that allows God to be all in all. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#105. Use every opportunity of humbling yourself before your fellow-men as a help to abide humble before God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#106. Our Father which art in heaven!' To appreciate this word of adoration aright, I must remember that none of the saints had in Scripture ever ventured to address God as their Father. The invocation places us at once in the centre of the wonderful revelation the Son came to make of His Father as our Father too. It comprehends the mystery of redemption - Christ delivering us from the curse that we might become the children of God. The mystery of regeneration - the Spirit in the new birth giving us the new life. And the mystery of faith - ere yet the redemption is accomplished or understood, the word is given on the lips of the disciples to prepare them for the blessed experience still to come. The words are the key to the whole prayer, to all prayer. It #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#109. The Christian often tries to forget his weakness; God wants us to remember it, to feel it deeply. The Christian wants to conquer his weakness and to be freed from it; God wants us to rest and even rejoice in it. The Christian mourns over his weakness; Christ teaches His servant to say, 'I take pleasure in infirmities. Most gladly ... will I ... glory in my infirmities' (2 Cor. 12:9)' The Christian thinks his weaknesses are his greatest hindrance in the life and service of God; God tells us that it is the secret of strength and success. It is our weakness, heartily accepted and continually realized, that gives our claim and access to the strength of Him who has said, 'My strength is made perfect in weakness #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#110. Scripture teaches us that there is not one truth on which Christ insisted more frequently, both with His disciples and with those who came seeking His help, than the absolute necessity of faith and its unlimited possibilities. Experience has taught us that there is nothing in which we come so short as the simple and absolute trust in God to fulfill literally in us all that He has promised. A life in the abiding presence must of necessity be a life of unceasing faith. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray

To know how to speak to God is more than knowing how to speak to man. Not power with men, but power with God is the first thing. Jesus loves to teach us how to pray. #Quote by Andrew Murray

#118. In the life of the Christian, it is one of the deepest lessons that he has to learn, that the Word without the living God avails little; that the blessing of the Word comes when it brings us to the living God; that the Word that we get from the mouth of God brings the power to know it and to do it. Let us learn the lesson: personal fellowship with God in secret alone can make the word to be life and power. #Quote by Andrew Murray

#121. One of the expressions for that unity is: "Seek first the Kingdom of God," That does not mean, as many people take it, "Seek salvation; seek to get into the Kingdom, and then thank God, and rest there." Ah, no; the meaning of that word is entirely different and infinitely larger. It means: Let the Kingdom of God, in all its breadth and length, in all its Heavenly glory and power; let the Kingdom of God be the one thing you live for, and all other things will be added unto you. "Seek first the Kingdom of God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#122. We often do not yield ourselves to God in obedience to His commandment to love our fellow men with Christ's love. What if that love should flow out to all around, even to those who hate us? This would require much grace and cost us time and trouble and serious prayer. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#123. There are two sorts of prayer: personal and intercessory. The latter ordinarily occupies the lesser part of our time and energy. This may not be. Christ has opened the school of prayer specially to train intercessors for the great work of bringing down, by their faith and prayer, the blessings of His work and love on the world around. There can be no deep growth in prayer unless this be made our aim. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#124. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him." Yes, for HIM. Seek not only the help, the gift, thou needest seek: HIMSELF; wait for HIM. Give God His glory by resting in Him, by trusting him fully, by waiting patiently for Him. This patience honors Him greatly; it leaves Him, as God on the throne, to do His work; it yields self wholly into His hands. It lets God be God. If thy waiting be for some special request, wait patiently. If thy waiting be more the exercise of the spiritual life seeking to know and have more of God, wait patiently. Whether it be in the shorter specific periods of waiting, or as the continuous habit of the souls. Rest in the Lord, be still before the Lord, and wait patiently. "They that wait on the Lord shall inherit the land." "My soul, wait thou only upon God! #Quote by Andrew Murray

#125. [On Anger]
[T]he instinct of self-preservation, setting itself against everything that interferes with our pleasures and comfort. What is called temper, with its fruits of anger and strife, has its roots in the physical constitution, and is one among the sins of the flesh.
[of the spirit ... ]
[T]he doing our will rather than His. In relation to our fellow-men it shows itself in envy, hatred, and want of love, cold neglect or harsh judging of others.

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#126. There are a thousand questions that at times come up; the attempt to answer them becomes a weariness and a burden. It is because you have forgotten you are in Christ, whom God has made to be your wisdom. Let it be your first care to abide in Him in undivided fervent devotion of heart. When the heart and the life are right, rooted in Christ, knowledge will come in such measure as Christ's own wisdom sees fit ... Oh, let us be content to possess Christ, to dwell in Him, to make Him our life, and only in deeper searching into Him, to search and find the knowledge we desire. Such knowledge is life indeed. #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#131. God desired to reveal himself in and through His creatures by communicating to them as much of His own goodness and glory as they were capable of receiving. But this communication was not meant to give created beings something they could possess in themselves, having full charge and access apart from Him. Rather, God as the ever-living, ever-present, ever-acting One, who upholds all things by the word of His power, and in whom all things exist, meant that the relationship of His creatures to himself would be one of unceasing, absolute dependence. As truly as God by His power once created all things, so by that same power must God every moment maintain all things. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#132. The Lord gave the wonderful promise of the free use of His Name with the Father in conjunction with doing His works. The disciple who lives only for Jesus' work and Kingdom, for His will and honor, will be given the power to appropriate the promise. Anyone grasping the promise only when he wants something very special for himself will be disappointed, because he is making Jesus the servant of his own comfort. But whoever wants to pray the effective prayer of faith because he needs it for the work of the Master will learn it, because he has made himself the servant of his Lord's interests. #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#134. Christ teaches us to pray not only by example, instruction, command, and promises but also by showing us that He is our ever-living intercessor. When we believe this and abide in Him for our prayer life too, our fears of not being able to pray correctly will vanish. We will joyfully and triumphantly trust our Lord to teach us to pray and to be the life and power of our prayers. May God open our eyes to see what the glorious ministry of intercession is to which we as His royal priesthood have been set apart. May He help us to believe what mighty influence our prayers can have, and may all fear of being unable to fulfill our calling vanish as we grasp the truth that Jesus is living in us and interceding for us. - Andrew Murray #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#138. Can I always be thinking of Jesus? Thank God, you need not always be thinking of Him. You may be the manager of a bank, and your whole attention may be required to carry out the business that you have to do. But thank God, while I have to think of my business, Jesus will think of me, and He will come in and will take charge of me. That little child, three months old, as it sleeps in its mother's arms, lies helplessly there; it hardly knows its mother, it does not think of her, but the mother thinks of the child. And this is the blessed mystery of love, that Jesus the God-man waits to come in to me in the greatness of His love; and as He gets possession of my heart, He embraces me in those divine arms and tells me, "My child, I the Faithful One, I the Mighty One will abide with thee, will watch over thee and keep thee all the days. #Quote by Andrew Murray

#141. I fear that if you take the preaching throughout the Church of Christ and ask why there is, alas! so little converting power in the preaching of the Word, why there is so much work and often so little result for eternity, why the Word has so little power to build up believers in holiness and in consecration - the answer will come: It is the absence of the power of the Holy Spirit. And why is this? There can be no other reason but that the flesh and human energy have taken the place that the Holy Spirit ought to have. #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#150. [T]he mystery of the Trinity is the mystery of Holiness: the Glory and the Power of the Trinity is the Glory and Power of God who makes us holy. There is God dwelling in light inaccessibly, a consuming fire of Holy Love, destroying all that resists, glorifying into its own purity all that yields. There is the Son, casting Himself into that consuming fire, whether in its eternal blessedness in heaven, or its angry wrath on earth, a willing sacrifice, to be its food and its satisfaction, as well as the revelation of its power to destroy and to save. And there is the Spirit of Holiness, the flames of that mighty fire spreading on every side, convicting and judging as the Spirit of Burning, and then transforming into its own brightness and holiness all that it can reach. All the relations of the Three Persons to each other and to us have their root and their meaning in the revelation of God as the Holy One. As we know and partake of Him, we shall know and partake of Holiness. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#151. Satan casts out Satan, it is only to enter afresh in a mightier, though more hidden power. Nothing can avail but this, that the new nature in its divine humility be revealed in power to take the place of the old, to become as truly our very nature as that ever was. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#152. Humility is the only soil in which the graces root; the lack of humility is the sufficient explanation of every defect and failure. Humility is not so much a grace or virtue along with others; it is the root of all, because it alone takes the right attitude before God, and allows Him as God to do all. #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew   Murray
#157. As surely as the Husbandman made the Vine what it was to be, will He make each branch what it is to be. Our Father is our Husbandman, the Surety for our growth and fruit. [. . .]

He insists upon the truth: Not of itself can the branch bear fruit; except it abide, it cannot bear fruit. "No more can ye, except ye abide in me." [. . .]

Let me learn the lesson. Abiding is to be an act of the will and the whole heart. [ . . . ]

You are the branch. - You need be nothing more. You need not for one single moment of the day take upon you the responsibility of the Vine. You need not leave the place of entire dependence and unbounded confidence.

Abiding in Me is indispensable, for, you know it, of yourselves you can do nothing to maintain or act out the heavenly life. [. . .]

It is the wholehearted surrender in everything to do His will, that gives access to a life in the abiding enjoyment of His love. Obey and abide. [. . .]

The purpose is His, He will carry it out; the fruit is His, He will bring it forth; the abiding is His, He will maintain it. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew   Murray
#158. The purpose of redemption is Possession, and the purpose of Possession is likeness to Him who is Redeemer and Owner, is Holiness. [. . .]

Redemption is too often looked at from its negative side as deliverance from: its real glory is the positive element of being redeemed unto Himself. [. . .]

'Ye have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep m covenant, ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: ye shall be unto me an holy nation.' - Exodus 14:4-6

The link between Redemption and Holiness is Obedience. [ . . .]

God's Holiness is His fatherliness; our holiness is childlikeness. [. . .]

If we are truly to live as redeemed ones, we need not only to look at the work Christ did to accomplish our redemption, but to accept and realize fully how complete, how sure, how absolute the liberty is wherewith He hath made us free. It is only as we 'stand fast in our liberty in Christ Jesus,' that we can have our fruit unto sanctification. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#159. And here it is that the teaching is needed: If you would enter into full fellowship with Christ in His death,and know the full deliverance from self, humble yourself. This is your duty. Place yourself before God in your helplessness; consent to the fact that you are powerless to slay yourself; give yourself in patient and trustful surrender to God. Accept every humiliation; look upon every person who tries or troubles you as a means of grace to humble you. God will see such acceptance as proof that your whole heart desires it. It is the path of humility that leads to the full and perfect experience of our death with Christ. Beware of the mistake so many make. They have so many qualifications and limitations, so many thoughts and questions as to what true humility is to be and to do that they never unreservedly yield themselves to it. Humble yourself unto death. It is in the death to self that humility is perfected. #Quote by Andrew Murray

It is only in a Church in which this spirit of revival has at least begun, that there is any hope of any very radical change in the relation of the majority of our Christian people to mission work. #Quote by Andrew Murray

#164. In our modern religion there is a reticence in speaking of our personal relationship to Jesus which often causes great loss.

#168. Of God are ye in Christ. It is not as if God placed and planted us in Christ, and left it to us now to maintain the union. No, God is the Eternal One, the God of the everlasting life, who works every moment in a power that does not for one moment cease. What God gives, He continues with a never-ceasing giving. It is He who by the Holy Spirit makes this life in Christ a blessed reality in our consciousness. #Quote by Andrew Murray

#170. humility is one of the chief and the highest graces; one of the most difficult of attainment; one to which our first and chiefest efforts ought to be directed; one that only comes in power, when the fullness of the Spirit makes us partakers of the indwelling Christ, and He lives within us.

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#171. There are two natures in the believer, and so two ways of seeking holiness, as we allow the principles of the one or the other nature to guide us. The one is the carnal way, in which we put forth our utmost efforts and resolutions, trusting Christ to help us in doing so. The other is the spiritual way, in which, as those who have did and can do nothing, our one care is to receive Christ day by day and at every step to let Him live and work in us. #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#173. Have you never yet learned the lesson that the Holy Spirit works with mighty power, while on the human side everything appears feeble? Look at the Lord Jesus Christ in Gethsemane. We read that He, "through the eternal Spirit" (Heb. 9:14), offered Himself a sacrifice unto God. The Almighty Spirit of God was enabling Him to do it. And yet what agony and fear and exceeding sorrow came over Him, and how He prayed! Externally, you can see no sign of the mighty power of the Spirit, but the Spirit of God was there. And even so, while you are feeble and fighting and trembling, in faith in the hidden work of God's Spirit do not fear, but yield yourself. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#174. We must learn of Jesus, how He is meek and lowly of heart. He teaches us where true humility takes its rise and finds its strength - in the knowledge that it is God who worketh all in all, that our place is to yield to Him in perfect resignation and dependence, in full consent to be and to do nothing of ourselves. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#175. God has priority over your time, no matter what else must be neglected. Only then will you be able to submit yourself fully to the will of God. If, from day to day, you persevere with dedication, time will no longer be a question. #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#177. God, I thank thee, I am not as the rest of men, or even as this publican. It is in that which is just cause for thanksgiving, it is in the very thanksgiving which we render to God, it may be in the very confession that God has done it all, that self finds its cause of complacency. Yes, even when in the temple the language of penitence and trust in God's mercy alone is heard, the Pharisee may take up the note of praise, and in thanking God be congratulating himself. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#178. Humility is the displacement of self by the enthronement of God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#179. It is one thing for a minister to be an advocate and supporter of missions: it is another and very different thing for him to understand that they are the chief end of the Church, and therefore the chief end for which his congregation exists. It is only when this truth masters him in its spiritual power, that he will be able to give the subject of missions its true place in his ministry. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Murray
#181. It is impossible for the Lord Jesus to refuse to receive you. Between Him and the Father there is an eternal covenant concerning you. The Father has, righteously, given Him fight and authority over you; He has paid your ransom at the great price that has freed you from the tyranny of Satan. He has been constantly calling you to come to Him. He now entreats you again to give yourself up to Him. How can you be so foolish as to think that He will not receive you? Then doubt no longer. Although you are devoid of feeling, and everything appears cold and dead, come and cast yourself down before Him, and say to Him that as He has bought you, you rely upon Him to receive you. He will certainly do so. #Quote by Andrew Murray

Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Levitas
#188. I have the incredibly good fortune of being able to make the majority of the work I produce in the world on my own with no one bothering me. It really comes entirely out of me. #Quote by Andrew Levitas
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew VanWyngarden
#189. I have a bad habit of picking up books about drugs, but that's better than having a drug habit, I think. #Quote by Andrew VanWyngarden
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Smith
#190. I once heard a tobacco-chewing hog farmer say that, in Iowa, folks like to spread out their children like dog shit on a dance floor. #Quote by Andrew Smith
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Shryock
#191. Our history is a material history, not just a succession of thoughts or speech acts. #Quote by Andrew Shryock
Andrew Murray quotes by Bill Murray
#192. It's hard to be an artist. It's hard to be anything. It's hard to be. #Quote by Bill Murray
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Sullivan

Andrew Murray quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#194. One evening he appeared with an infant in his arms at the door of his ex-wife, Martha. Because Briony, his lovely young wife after Martha, had died. Of what? We'll get to that. I can't do this alone, Andrew said, as Martha stared at him from the open doorway. It happened to have been snowing that night, and Martha was transfixed by the soft creature-like snowflakes alighting on Andrew's NY Yankees hat brim. Martha was like that, enrapt by the peripheral things as if setting them to music. Even in ordinary times, she was slow to respond, looking at you with her large dark rolling protuberant eyes. Then the smile would come, or the nod, or the shake of the head. Meanwhile the heat from her home drifted through the open door and fogged up Andrew's eyeglasses. He stood there behind his foggy lenses like a blind man in the snowfall and was without volition when at last she reached out, gently took the swaddled infant from him, stepped back, and closed the door in his face. #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Klavan
#195. There's a school of thought today that rejects patriotism. People are made nervous by that intense allegiance to a country. They think it can only lead to war and bloodshed and that fights can be avoided if we all just compromise and get along. And, of course, compromise and getting along are great things as long as you're not sacrificing essential values. But I believe there's a line in the sand, some things that you have to be willing to stand up for, even if it means trouble. Charlie's patriotism is not blind, flag-waving jingoism: it's an intense allegiance to the American concept of liberty. He's through and through. He can talk about it and explain it. And he's shown he's willing to give everything for it. I admire him for that. #Quote by Andrew Klavan
Andrew Murray quotes by Chris Cleave
#196. The only reason we were married in such haste was that my mother begged me not to marry Andrew at all. One of you in a marriage has to be soft, she said. One of you has to know how to say, Have it your way. That's not going to be you, dear, so it might as well be the man. #Quote by Chris Cleave
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Sullivan
#197. When you put a tiny and despised minority up for a popular vote, the minority usually loses. #Quote by Andrew Sullivan
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Marvell
#198. How fit he is to sway That can so well obey. #Quote by Andrew Marvell
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Johnson
#199. Legislation can neither be wise nor just which seeks the welfare of a single interest at the expense and to the injury of many and varied interests. #Quote by Andrew Johnson
Andrew Murray quotes by Murray N. Rothbard
#200. Social power is the power over nature, the living standards achieved by men in mutual exchange. State power, as we have seen, is the coercive and parasitic seizure of this production - a draining of the fruits of society for the benefit of nonproductive (actually antiproductive) rulers. #Quote by Murray N. Rothbard
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#201. A sunny disposition is worth more than fortune. Young people should know that it can be cultivated; that the mind, like the body can be moved from the shade into sunshine. #Quote by Andrew Carnegie
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Forge
#202. The paint has a skin to it, here taut and glossy, there wrinkled, abraded, scarred. It is pierced, abraded, scraped. A line drawn through it will go through half a dozen states, from the furry bloom of crusted charcoal to a blind furrow, cutting a channel in to soft paint below. #Quote by Andrew Forge
Andrew Murray quotes by Nicholas Murray Butler
#203. The analytical geometry of Descartes and the calculus of Newton and Leibniz have expanded into the marvelous mathematical method-more daring than anything that the history of philosophy records-of Lobachevsky and Riemann, Gauss and Sylvester. Indeed, mathematics, the indispensable tool of the sciences, defying the senses to follow its splendid flights, is demonstrating today, as it never has been demonstrated before, the supremacy of the pure reason. #Quote by Nicholas Murray Butler
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Buchan
#204. I feel very privileged to have worked with a lot of outstanding actors: Alun Armstrong, Peter Mullan, Matt Smith and Andrew Garfield. #Quote by Andrew Buchan
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Wommack
#205. Prayer is not trying to twist God's arm to make Him do something. Prayer is receiving by faith what He has already done! #Quote by Andrew Wommack
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Weil
#206. It is unrealistic to want to be happy all the time. #Quote by Andrew Weil
Andrew Murray quotes by Harold Holzer
#207. Indeed, in 1794, George Washington had not only authorized sending national troops into battle against Pennsylvanians resisting the whiskey tax, he had taken to the field to lead the forces himself. Later, Andrew Jackson had acted boldly to crush South Carolina's attempt to nullify the 1832 tariff. #Quote by Harold Holzer
Andrew Murray quotes by Felix J. Palma
#208. Somehow this literary genre, which most people condemned, acted as a sort of counterbalance to Charles's soul; it was the ballast that prevented him from lurching into the serious or melancholy, unlike Andrew, who had been unable to adopt his cousin's casual attitude to life, and to whom everything seemed so achingly profound, imbed with that absurd solemnity that the transience of of existence conferred upon even the smallest act. #Quote by Felix J. Palma
Andrew Murray quotes by Rob Andrew
#209. I can categorically say I will not be putting my hat in the ring. It's not something I have ever coveted and it's not a position I am interested in taking up at this point in time. I am loyal to Newcastle and they have been fabulous to me. I feel that is where my responsibility lies. #Quote by Rob Andrew
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Sarris
#210. The Window is not without a certain visual spell that makes it a first-rate artistic achievement. #Quote by Andrew Sarris
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Schneider
#211. The vow of silence, that's the mind-blower. See, talking is what I do ... i t's a real need with me, a craving, I'm like a word junkie. I never shut up. I talk to myself, I talk in my sleep. The idea of voluntarily turning off that tap, I can't imagine it It'd be like, I don't know, all the rivers in the world just slammed to a stop. No churning, no flowing, no white water, just stillness, crushing stillness. I don't think I could stand it, locked up like that in my own psyche. I'd collapse into myself, I'd implode #Quote by Andrew Schneider
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Levkoff
#212. Oh, I take your meaning now, Marcus," he said, as if comprehension had just dawned. "You would have me harken back to a time when the outcome of a contest was not known until after the voting. How nostalgic. #Quote by Andrew Levkoff
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Motion
#213. These places, and the ancient things you know, You won't know soon. I'm working on it now.' #Quote by Andrew Motion
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew O'Hagan
#214. Novelists are no more moral or certain than anybody else; we are ideologically adrift, and if we are any good then our writing will live in several places at once. That is both our curse and our charm. #Quote by Andrew O'Hagan
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Davidson
#215. Titivillus was a tricky little bastard. Despite the scribe's best intentions, the work itself was repetitive and boring. The mind would wander and mistakes would be made. It was the duty of Titivillus to fill his sack a thousand times each day with manuscript errors. These were hauled to Satan, where they would be recorded in The Book of Errors and used against the scribe on Judgment Day. Thus, the work of copying came with a risk to the scribe: while properly transcribed words were positive marks, incorrectly transcribed words were negative marks. #Quote by Andrew Davidson
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Marr
#216. For Reuter, it was the last act of the Great War and something which reduced, if it did not remove, the shame of defeat and surrender. The message, for those who chose to think about it, was that Germany was down but not out - defeated but not reconciled. #Quote by Andrew Marr
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Motion
#217. But Wordsworth is the poet I admire above all others. #Quote by Andrew Motion
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Lutts
#218. Remember that when you judge others you are likely judging the very angel you deputized to act out that role as a part of your drama of working to become whole and unconditionally loving. #Quote by Andrew Lutts
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew St. Laurent
#219. The Licensor is that person with the ability and inclination to grant the rights described in the License. #Quote by Andrew St. Laurent
Andrew Murray quotes by Andrew Wyeth
#220. I love to study the many things that grow below the corn stalks and bring them back to the studio to study the color. If one could only catch that true color of nature - the very thought of it drives me mad. #Quote by Andrew Wyeth
