Henry Ward Beecher

Henry Ward Beecher

was a prominent Congregationalist clergyman, social reformer, abolitionist, and speaker in the mid to late 19th century.
Earthly love is a brief and penurious stream, which only flows in spring, with a long summer drought. The change from a burning desert, treeless, springless, drear, to green fields and blooming orchards in June, is slight in comparison with that from the desert of this world's affection to the garden of God, where there is perpetual, tropical luxuriance of blessed love.More Henry Ward Beecher quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Love is God's loaf; and this is that feeding for which we are taught to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread."More Henry Ward Beecher quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The cynic is one who never sees a good quality in a man, and never fails to see a bad one. He is the human owl, vigilant in darkness and blind to light, mousing for vermin, and never seeing noble game.More Henry Ward Beecher quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The beginning is the promise of the end.More Henry Ward Beecher quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
