Billy Graham in Quotes

Posted on Saturday, February 18, 2012 in Education, Reviews, Spiritual, Values

We crave for meaning and purpose, security and significance, love and hope.

Billy Graham has offered wise quote-worthy advise on these and many subjects for generations.

This book — Billy Graham in Quotes – provides sound bites with wisdom for the ages. Franklin Graham, Billy’s son, and Donna Lee Toney have collected thousands of quotes gathered into 107 categories (listed below) that will delight, motivate and enrich readers.

Here are ten quotes that I valued. You may value others. I loved this collection of wise words and sage suggestions, and I think that you will too.

Anxiety:

“Though we have less to worry about than previous generations, we have more worry. Though we have it easier than our forefathers, we have more uneasiness. Though we have less real cause for anxiety than our predecessors, we are inwardly more anxious.”

Commitment:

“Jesus didn’t use subtlety or gimmicks to gain followers. Rather, He honestly laid before them the tough demands of discipleship—total commitment and total involvement.”

“Commitment means burning all bridges behind you.”

Hope:

“Faith points us beyond our problems to the hope we have in Christ.”

“Our world today desperately hungers for hope, and yet uncounted people have almost given up. There is despair and hopelessness on every hand. Let us be faithful in proclaiming the hope that is in Jesus!”

Love:

“When Christ’s love fills our hearts, it puts selfishness on the run.”

“God is sending forth His message of love, but you must tune in. You must be willing to listen and to receive His message and then to obey it.”

“God’s love is unchangeable; He knows exactly what we are and loves us anyway.”

Marriage:

“Nothing brings more joy than a good marriage, and nothing brings more misery than a bad marriage.”

“Gardens don’t grow by themselves; they need to be tended and cultivated and weeded. The same is true of a marriage.”

  1. You posted on a Saturday!!!! I missed this one. I am a fan of Billy!

  2. Yup!
    Book Reports are on weekends!
    There are a few of them. http://mysilentscream.com/category/reviews
    Thanks for noticing!
    I am a grateful fan of Billy for many reasons; mostly because he led my father-in-law Ron Fayas to Jesus through a TV broadcast!

  3. I googled your name because I recall meeting someone by your name at the US Center for World missions in Pasadena in the mid 1980’s.

    You made a very powerful impression on me due to your vital relationship with the Lord.

    I so appreciate finding your website. I really like the Billy Graham quotes; such a great idea. I am an associate founder of a charity-funding organization and do some writing. Thanks for keeping on keeping on…

  4. Terri,
    Thank you, I’m honored that you took the time to find me.
    Thank you for reading and commenting.
    One of the great privileges in my life is when I met Billy Graham he stood to greet me.
    Some day I might find the funding to publish books.
    Some day I might finish a PhD.
    Some day I might become a wise old man.
    I hope I will always remember to greet people graciously who want to talk to me.
    Scott

  5. Terri Rae Matthews! I remember meeting you in Downieville in 1983 and we lost touch in 1985. Last I heard from you, you were at The First Presbytarian Church of Hollywood and and were also involved with the Ramabai Mukti Mission..
    I would greatly love to reconnect. My email is AFWhitney@icloud.com and I am now in Southern CA, a mother of 3 wonderful little women.
