The saloon is a liar. It promises good cheer and sends sorrow.

Jesus Christ was God's revenue officer.

The only way to keep a broken vessel full is to keep it always under the tap.

Some persons have lived manly or womanly lives, and they lack but one thing - open confession of the Lord Jesus Christ. Some men think that they must come to him in a certain way - that they must be stirred by emotion or something like that.

There are two hundred and fifty-six names given in the Bible for the Lord Jesus Christ, and I suppose this was because He was infinitely beyond all that any one name could express.

I believe the Bible is the word of God from cover to cover.

Whiskey is all right in its place - but its place is hell.

Religion needs a baptism of horse sense.

Try praising your wife, even if it does frighten her at first.

I am a temperance Republican down to my toes.

The Bible will always be full of things you cannot understand, as long as you will not live according to those you can understand.

The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out.

Christianity means a lot more than church membership.

Unless you have made a complete surrender and are doing his will it will avail you nothing if you've reformed a thousand times and have your name on fifty church records.

If there is no hell, a good many preachers are obtaining money under false pretenses.

You can't raise the standard of women's morals by raising their pay envelope. It lies deeper than that.

Better die an old maid, sister, than marry the wrong man.

The devil says I'm out, but the Lord says I'm safe.

The rivers of America will run with blood filled to their banks before we will submit to them taking the Bible out of our schools.

Hell is the highest reward that the devil can offer you for being a servant of his.

You can't measure manhood with a tape line around his biceps.

Listen, I'm against sin. I'll kick it as long as I've got a foot, I'll fight it as long as I've got a fist, I've butt it as long as I've got a head, and I'll bite it as long as I've got a tooth. And when I'm old, fistless, footless, and toothless, I'll gum it till I go home to glory and it goes home to perdition.

Live so that when the final summons comes you will leave something more behind you than an epitaph on a tombstone or an obituary in a newspaper.

Give your face to God, and He will put his shine on it.

O Devil, why do you hit us when we are down? Old boy, I know that you have no time for me, and I guess that you have about learned that I have no time for you. I will never apologize for anything I have ever done against you. If I have ever said anything that has does not hurt you, tell me about it, and I'll take it out of my sermon.

One reason sin flourishes is that it is treated like a cream puff instead of a rattlesnake.

I have been, and will go on, fighting that damnable, dirty, rotten business with all the power at my command.

Hypocrites in the Church? Yes, and in the lodge and at the home. Don't hunt through the Church for a hypocrite. Go home and look in the mirror. Hypocrites? Yes. See that you make the number one less.

I am the sworn, eternal and uncompromising enemy of the liquor traffic.

Home is the place we love best and grumble the most.

The trouble with many men is that they have got just enough religion to make them miserable. If there is not joy in religion, you have got a leak in your religion.

After all is said that can be said upon the liquor traffic, its influence is degrading upon the individual, the family, politics and business, and upon everything that you touch in this old world.

I challenge you to show me where the saloon has ever helped business, education, church, morals or anything we hold dear.

The fellow that has no money is poor. The fellow that has nothing but money is poorer still.

The Democratic party of Florida has put a temperance plank in its platform and the Republican party of every state would nail that plank in their platform if they thought it would carry the election.

The reason you don't like the Bible, you old sinner, is because it knows all about you.

Yank some of the groans out of your prayers and shove in some shouts.

I tell you that the curse of God Almighty is on the saloon.

The world is wrong side up. It needs to be turned upside down in order to be right side up.

Temptation is the devil looking through the keyhole. Yielding is opening the door and inviting him in.

Some persons think that they have to look like a hedgehog to be pious.
