— Martin Lawrence

The dog is the god of frolic.

— Henry Ward Beecher

— Mitt Romney

Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants.

— Angelina Jolie

One of the peculiar sins of the twentieth century which we’ve developed to a very high level is the sin of credulity. It has been said that when human beings stop believing in God they believe in nothing. The truth is much worse: they believe in anything.

— Malcolm Muggeridge

We have come to a turning point in the road. If we turn to the right mayhap our children and our children’s children will go that way but if we turn to the left, generations yet unborn will curse our names for having been unfaithful to God and to His Word.
