Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

The shortening of devotions starves the soul, it grows lean and faint — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

I continually find it necessary to guard against that natural love of wealth and grandeur which prompts us always, when we come to apply our general doctrine to our own case, to claim an exception. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

In the calmness of the morning before the mind is heated and weary by the turmoil of the day, you have a season of unusual importance for communing with God and with yourself. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Let everyone regulate his conduct ... by the golden rule of doing to others as in similar circumstances we would have them do to us, and the path of duty will be clear before him. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Charles Colson

Wilberforce and the band of abolitionists knew that a private faith that did not act in the face of oppression was no faith at all. — Charles Colson

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

No one expects to attain to the height of learning, or arts, or power, or wealth, or military glory, without vigorous resolution, strenuous diligence, and steady perseverance. Yet we expect to be Christians without labour, study, or inquiry. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Men of authority and influence may promote good morals. Let them in their several stations encourage virtue. Let them favor and take part in any plans which may be formed for the advancement of morality. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

No man, ever indulged more freely or happily in that playful facetiousness which gratifies all without wounding any. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

If ... a principle of true Religion [i.e., true Christianity] should ... gain ground, there is no estimating the effects on public morals, and the consequent influence on our political welfare. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

The objects of the present life fill the human eye with a false magnification because of their immediacy. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Eric Metaxas

Today, Wilberforce University welcomes many of America's poorest and most underserved populations and transforms their educational dreams into realities. — Eric Metaxas

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

We can scarcely indeed look into any part of the sacred volume without meeting abundant proofs, that it is the religion of the Affections which God particularly requires. Love, Zeal, Gratitude, Joy, Hope, Trust, are each of them specified; and are not allowed to us as weaknesses, but enjoined on us as our bounden duty, and commended to us as our acceptable worship. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

I mean not to accuse any one, but to take the shame upon myself, in common, indeed, with the whole parliament of Great Britain, for having suffered this horrid trade to be carried on under their authority. We are all guilty - we ought all to plead guilty, and not to exculpate ourselves by throwing the blame on others; and I therefore deprecate every kind of reflection against the various descriptions of people who are more immediately involved in this wretched business. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Oh Lord, purify my soul from all its stains. Warm my heart with the love of thee, animate my sluggish nature and fix my inconstancy, and volatility, that I may not be weary in well doing, — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Both man and woman have their own parts to play in bringing faith to the next generation, and the woman's role is particularly important. How can we ever think that the female sex is inferior when we see the essential responsibility God has given women in this world? Their sensitivity to spiritual concerns seems to be farm more innate and natural than a man's. Mothers and wives often are the medium for our intercourse with the heavenly world, the faithful repositories of spiritual knowledge and wisdom. We should all be careful to avail ourselves of the benefits they have to offer both the present generation and the one that will follow us. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

I would suggest that faith is everyone's business. The advance or decline of faith is so intimately connected to the welfare of a society that it should be of particular interest to a politician. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Servile, and base, and mercenary, is the notion of Christian practice among the bulk of nominal Christians. They give no more than they dare not with-hold; they abstain from nothing but what they must not practise. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

A private faith that does not act in the face of oppression is no faith at all. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

It is the true duty of every man to promote the happiness of his fellow creatures to the utmost of his power. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

If any country were indeed filled with men, each thus diligently discharging the duties of his own station without breaking in upon the rights of others, but on the contrary endeavoring, so far as he might be able, to forward their views and promote their happiness, all would be active and harmonious in the goodly frame of human society. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

True Christians consider themselves not as satisfying some rigorous creditor, but as discharging a debt of gratitude — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Our motto must continue to be perseverance. And ultimately I trust the Almighty will crown our efforts with success. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Samuel Wilberforce

The principle of natural selection is absolutely incompatible with the word of God. [It] contradicts the revealed relations of creation to its Creator. — Samuel Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

There is no shortcut to holiness; it must be the business of our whole lives. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

As much pains were taken to make me idle as were ever taken to make me studious. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Can one serve God and one's nation in parliament? — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

In an age in which infidelity abounds, do we observe parents carefully instructing their children in the principles of faith which they profess? Or do they furnish their children with arguments for the defense of that faith? ... it is not surprising to see them abandon a position which they are unable to defend. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

To live our lives and miss that great purpose we were designed to accomplish is truly a sin. It is inconceivable that we could be bored in a world with so much wrong to tackle, so much ignorance to reach and so much misery we could alleviate — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

What should we suppose must naturally be the consequence of our carrying on a slave trade with Africa? With a country, vast in its extent, not utterly barbarous, but civilized in a very small degree? Does any one suppose a slave trade would help their civilization? — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Because they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, he gave them over to a reprobate mind — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

May God enable me to have a single eye and a simple heart, desiring to please God, to do good to my fellow creatures, and testify my gratitude to my adorable Redeemer. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

And, sir, when we think of eternity, and of the future consequences of all human conduct, what is there in this life that should make any man contradict the dictates of his conscience, the principles of justice, the laws of religion, and of God?. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Jonathan Clements

In what appears to have been an unplanned quip, Wilberforce asked Huxley if he thought he was descended from an ape on his father's or mother's side. Huxley retorted that he would rather have simian relatives than claim kinship with a man who used his charisma and authority to quash free debate. — Jonathan Clements

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

This perpetual hurry of business and company ruins me in soul if not in body. More solitude and earlier hours! — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Ow interest can draw a film across the eyes, so think, that total blindness could do no more; and how it is our duty therefore to trust not to the reasonings of interested men, or to their way of colouring a transaction.
William Wilberforce, 12th May 1789, Against the slave trade — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Life as we know it, with all its ups and downs, will soon be over. We all will give an accounting to God of how we have lived. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Blessed be to God for the day of rest and religious occupation wherein earthly things assume their true size. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

The distemper of which, as a community, we are sick, should be considered rather as a moral than a political malady. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Let it not be said that I was silent when they needed me. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Clarke D. Forsythe

[L]ike it or not, the right timing is an inescapable part of human endeavor and thus of politics. . . . But some activists suggest that "timing" is irrelevant in public policy and politics. In their view, it's just another "excuse" by "incrementalists," another example of their traitorous cowardice, another reason why they should be condemned and purged. . . . There is a fundamental ethical and practical difference between compromise and prudently fighting for the most good that can be gained in the face of overwhelming odds. . . . Realizing the constraints and limits of this world should guard us against unrealistic expectations of what politics can or should achieve. And yet, the examples of Wilberforce and Lincoln, among many others, demonstrate that moral purpose can be successfully pursued in politics with prudence. — Clarke D. Forsythe

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

We are too young to realize that certain things are impossible ... So we will do them anyway. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Is it not the great end of religion, and, in particular, the glory of Christianity, to extinguish the malignant passions; to curb the violence, to control the appetites, and to smooth the asperities of man; to make us compassionate and kind, and forgiving one to another; to make us good husbands, good fathers, good friends; and to render us active and useful in the discharge of the relative social and civil duties? — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Bob Brown

Every time I get a bit worried about having made some second rate choices in life I go back and read about the Suffragettes or William Wilberforce, people who were 'wrong' in their own time, and think, 'Ah well.' — Bob Brown

Wilberforce Quotes By Samuel Wilberforce

O what a blessing is Sunday, interposed between the waves of worldly business like the divine path of the Israelites through the sea. — Samuel Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Some might say that one's faith is a private matter and should not be spoken of so publicly. They might assert this in public, but what do they really think in their hearts? The fact is, those who say such things usually don't even have a concern for faith in the privacy of their interior lives. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

My walk is a public one. My business is in the world, and I must mix in the assemblies of men or quit the post which Providence seems to have assigned me. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Surely the principles of Christianity lead to action as well as meditation. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Africa, your sufferings have been the theme that has arrested & engaged my heart. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

So enormous, so dreadful, so irremediable did the [slave] trade's wickedness appear that my own mind was completely made up for abolition. Let the consequences be what they would: I from this time determined that I would never rest until I had effected its abolition. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Eric Metaxas

Great men like Wilberforce and Wesley had the humility and the wisdom to know that whatever strengths they had - and they had many - they could not win without a total reliance on God. At its core, every battle worth fighting is a spiritual battle. Those men were able to succeed only because they humbled themselves and entrusted the battle to God. — Eric Metaxas

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

There are four things that we ought to do with the Word of God - admit it as the Word of God, commit it to our hearts and minds, submit to it, and transmit it to the world. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Glynn Harrison

So which is it to be, Benedict or Wilberforce? I think it needs to be both. Realistically, in the short term, most of our energy will need to be expended on preserving confidence in our own communities. As we saw in the last chapter, there is much work to be done in transforming our own communities in ways that will buttress and nurture what we believe. But while sustaining and nurturing these beliefs must be our short-term priority, our hearts, together with our heads, must remain orientated to the welfare of the city where we have been exiled. Clearly, — Glynn Harrison

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Wherever we direct our view, we discover the melancholy proofs of our depravity; whether we look to ancient or modern times, to barbarous or civilized nations, to the conduct of the world around us, or to the monitor within the breast; whether we read, or hear, or act, or think, or feel, the same humiliating lesson is forced upon us. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Of all things, guard against neglecting God in the secret place of prayer. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Accustom yourself to look first to the dreadful consequences of failure; then fix your eye on the glorious prize which is before you; and when your strength begins to fail, and your spirits are well nigh exhausted, let the animating view rekindle your resolution, and call forth in renewed vigour the fainting energies of your soul. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

No matter how loud you shout, you will not drown out the voice of the people! — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By J.K. Rowling

Don't get smart - you two are in a heap of trouble!" snarled Anderson. "Names!"
"Names?" repeated the long-haired driver. "Er - well, let's see. There's Wilberforce ... Bathsheba ... Elvendork ... "
"And what's nice about that one is, you can use it for a boy or a girl," said the boy in glasses.
"Oh, our names, did you mean?" asked the first, as Anderson spluttered with rage. "You should've said! This here is James Potter, and I'm Sirius Black!"
"Things'll be seriously black for you in a minute, you cheeky little - — J.K. Rowling

Wilberforce Quotes By Charles Fox

When people speak of great men, they think of men like Napoleon - men of violence. Rarely do they think of peaceful men. But contrast the reception they will receive when they return home from their battles. Napoleon will arrive in pomp and in power, a man who's achieved the very summit of earthly ambition. And yet his dreams will be haunted by the oppressions of war. William Wilberforce, however, will return to his family, lay his head on his pillow and remember: the slave trade is no more. — Charles Fox

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Surely the experience of all good men confirms the proposition that without a due measure of private devotions the soul will grow lean. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

We have different forms assigned to us in the school of life, different gifts imparted. All is not attractive that is good. Iron is useful, though it does not sparkle like the diamond. Gold has not the fragrance of a flower. So different persons have various modes of excellence, and we must have an eye to all. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

God Almighty has set before me two Great Objects: the supression of the Slave Trade and the Reformation of Manners. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Sara Maitland

Wilberforce did not believe in either evolution or extinction.
Owen believed in extinction but not evolution.
Lamarck believed in evolution but not extinction.
Darwin believed in evolution and extinction.
All four of them believed in God. — Sara Maitland

Wilberforce Quotes By Eric Metaxas

There were effectively only two responses to the condition of the poor in Wilberforce's day. One was to look down on them scornfully, moralistically judging them as inferior and unworthy of help. The other was to ignore them entirely, to see their plight as inevitable, part of the unavoidable price of "modern civilization." But Wilberforce would introduce a third way of responding to the situation. This response would neither judge the poor and suffering nor ignore them, but rather would reach out to them and help them up, so to speak. — Eric Metaxas

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

It makes no sense to take the name of Christian and not cling to Christ. Jesus is not some magic charm to wear like a piece of jewelry we think will give us good luck. He is the Lord. His name is to be written on our hearts in such a powerful way that it creates within us a profound experience of His peace and a heart that is filled with His praise. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

It must be conceded by those who admit the authority of Scripture (such only he is addressing) that from the decision of the word of God there can be no appeal. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

If you love someone who is ruining his or her life because of faulty thinking, and you don't do anything about it because you are afraid of what others might think, it would seem that rather than being loving, you are in fact being heartless. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

What a difference it would be if our system of morality were based on the Bible instead of the standards devised by cultural Christians. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

The first years in Parliament I did nothing - nothing to any purpose. My own distinction was my darling object. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Read the Bible, read the Bible! Let no religious book take its place. Through all my perplexities and distresses, I seldom read any other book, and I as rarely felt the want of any other. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

I must secure more time for private devotions. I have been living far too public for me. The shortening of devotions starves the soul, it grows lean and faint. I have been keeping too late hours. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Samuel Wilberforce

A resolution to attend theatres or operas is an absolute disqualification for Holy Orders. — Samuel Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

If to be feelingly alive to the sufferings of my fellow-creatures is to be a fanatic, I am one of the most incurable fanatics ever permitted to be at large. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Samuel Wilberforce

If I were a cassowary On the plains of Timbuctoo, I would eat a missionary, Cassock, band, and hymn-book too. — Samuel Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

No man has a right to be idle. Where is it that in such a world as this, that health, and leisure, and affluence may not find some ignorance to instruct, some wrong to redress, some want to supply, some misery to alleviate? — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

When blessed with wealth, let them withdraw from the competition of vanity and be modest, retiring from ostentation, and not be the slaves of fashion. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Sulky labor, and the labor of sorrow are little worth: if you could only shed tranquility over the conscience and infuse joy into the soul, you would do more to make the man a thorough worker than if you could lend him the force of Hercules, or the hundred arms of Briareus. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Samuel Wilberforce

Christianity can be condensed into four words: Admit, Submit, Commit and Transmit. — Samuel Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Mitt Romney

Christianity is not the faith of the complacent, the comfortable or of the timid. It demands and creates heroic souls like Wesley, Wilberforce, Bonhoeffer, John Paul the Second, and Billy Graham. Each showed, in their own way, the relentless and powerful influence of the message of Jesus Christ. — Mitt Romney

Wilberforce Quotes By Will Durant

On August 26 the Assembly responded by conferring French citizenship upon Joseph Priestley, Jeremy Bentham, William Wilberforce, Anacharsis Cloots, Johann Pestalozzi, Thaddeus Kosciusko, Friedrich Schiller, George Washington, Thomas Paine, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. — Will Durant

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Let him then, who would be indeed a Christian, watch over his ways and over his heart with unceasing circumspection. Let him endeavour to learn, both from men and books, particularly from the lives of eminent Christians, what methods have been actually found most effectual for the conquest of every particular vice, and for improvement in every branch of holiness. Thus studying his own character, and observing the most secret workings of his own mind, and of our common nature; the knowledge which he will acquire of the human heart in general, and especially of his own, will be of the highest utility, in enabling him to avoid or to guard against the occasions of evil: and it will also tend, above all things, to the growth of humility, and to the maintenance of that sobriety of spirit and tenderness of conscience, which are eminently characteristic of the true Christian. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Let true Christians then, with becoming earnestness, strive in all things to recommend their profession, and to put to silence the vain scoffs of ignorant objectors. Let them boldly assert the cause of Christ in an age when so many, who bear the name of Christians, are ashamed of Him: and let them consider as devolved on Them the important duty of suspending for a while the fall of their country, and, perhaps, of performing a still more extensive service to society at large; not by busy interference in politics, in which it cannot but be confessed there is much uncertainty; but rather by that sure and radical benefit of restoring the influence of Religion, and of raising the standard of morality. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By John C. Maxwell

In the closing years of John Wesley's life, he became a friend of William Wilberforce. In England, Wilberforce was a great champion of freedom for slaves before the American Civil War. He was subjected to a vicious campaign by slave traders and others whose powerful commercial interests were threatened. Rumors were spread that he was a wife-beater. His character, morals, and motives were repeatedly smeared during some twenty years of pitched battles. From his deathbed, John Wesley wrote to Wilberforce, "Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be won out by the opposition of men and devils; but if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? Be not weary in well-doing." William Wilberforce never forgot those words of John Wesley. They kept him going even when all the forces of hell were arrayed against him. The — John C. Maxwell

Wilberforce Quotes By Thomas Henry Huxley

[Responding to the Bishop of Oxford, Samuel Wilberforce's question whether he traced his descent from an ape on his mother's or his father's side]
A man has no reason to be ashamed of having an ape for his grandfather. If there were an ancestor whom I should feel shame in recalling it would rather be a man - a man of restless and versatile intellect - who ... plunges into scientific questions with which he has no real acquaintance, only to obscure them by an aimless rhetoric, and distract the attention of his hearers from the real point at issue by eloquent digressions and skilled appeals to religious prejudice. — Thomas Henry Huxley

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

How can we judge fairly of the characters and merits of men, of the wisdom or folly of actions, unless we have ... an accurate knowledge of all particulars, so that we may live as it were in the times, and among the persons, of whom we read, see with their eyes, and reason and decide on their premises? — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Christianity has been successfully attacked and marginalized ... because those who professed belief were unable to defend the faith from attack, even though its attackers' arguments were deeply flawed. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Lovely flowers are the smiles of god's goodness. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

God has so made the mind of man that a peculiar deliciousness resides in the fruits of personal industry. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By J.I. Packer

William Wilberforce ... w as a great man who impacted the Western world as few others have done. Blessed with brains, charm, influence and initiative, much wealth ... he put evangelism on Britain's map as a power for social change, first by overthrowing the slave trade almost single-handed and then by generating a stream of societies for doing good and reducing evil in public life ... To forget such men is foolish. — J.I. Packer

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Selfishness is one of the principal fruits of the corruption of human nature; and it is obvious that selfishness disposes us to over-rate our good qualities, and to overlook or extenuate our defects. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

It is the distinguishing glory of Christianity not to rest satisfied with superficial appearances, but to rectify the motives, and purify the heart. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Measure your progress by your experience of the love of God and its exercise before men. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By Terry Pratchett

There were no judges and no prizes. The Trials weren't like that, as Petulia had said. The point was to show what you could do, to show what you'd become, so that people would go away thinking things like 'That Caramella Bottlethwaite, she's coming along nicely.' It wasn't a competition, honestly. No one won.

And if you believed that, you'd believe that the moon is pushed around the sky by a goblin called Wilberforce. — Terry Pratchett

Wilberforce Quotes By Eric Metaxas

Taken all together, it's difficult to escape the verdict that William Wilberforce was simply the greatest social reformer in the history of the world. — Eric Metaxas

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

I am disturbed when I see the majority of so-called Christians having such little understanding of the real nature of the faith they profess. Faith is a subject of such importance that we should not ignore it because of the distractions or the hectic pace of our lives. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

The instructive admonitions, "give an account of thy stewardship," - "occupy till I come;" are forgotten. Thus the generous and wakeful spirit of Christian Benevolence, seeking and finding every where occasions for its exercise, is exploded, and a system of decent selfishness is avowedly established in its stead; a system scarcely more to be abjured for its impiety, than to be abhorred for its cold insensibility to the opportunities of diffusing happiness. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Why is it so hard to get people to study the Scriptures? Common sense tells us what revelation commands: 'Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God'
'Search the Scriptures'
'Be ready to give to every one a reason of the hope that is in you.' These are the words of the inspired writers, and these injunctions are confirmed by praising those who obey the admonition. And yet, for all that we have the Bible in our houses, we are ignorant of its contents. No wonder that so many Christians know so little about what Christ actually taught; no wonder that they are so mistaken about the faith that they profess. — William Wilberforce

Wilberforce Quotes By William Wilberforce

Can you tell a plain man the road to heaven? Certainly, turn at once to the right, then go straight forward. — William Wilberforce
