Henry Ward Beecher quotes

Liberal US Congregational minister, 1813-1887


Many men build as cathedrals were built, the part nearest the ground finished; but that part which soars toward heaven, the turrets and the spires, forever incomplete.

 

Pride slays thanksgiving, but an humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.

 

Men will let you abuse them if only you will make them laugh.

 

Never forget what a man says to you when he is angry.

 

Next to ingratitude, the most painful thing to bear is gratitude.

 

No man can tell whether he is rich or poor by turning to his ledger. It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich or poor according to what he is, not according to what he has.

 

No man is sane who does not know how to be insane on the proper occasions.

 

No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy the sunlight today, mix good cheer with friends today, enjoy it and bless God for it. Do not look back on happiness - or dream of it in the future. You are only sure of today; do not let yourself be

 

Now comes the mystery. (His last words)

 

If a man meets with injustice, it is not required that he shall not be roused to meet it; but if he is angry after he has had time to think upon it, that is sinful. The flame is not wrong, but the coals are.
