…Home earth’s only paradise…

     – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 16.

 It is more important that you trust the Rock of Ages

            than that you know the age of the rocks.

      – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 39.

 

No mental processes can stop the mad race for money.  Man must be born again. 

     – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 43.

 

I challenge the doctrine now being taught that we must enter into a mad rivalry with the Old World in the building of battleships, the doctrine that the only way to preserve peace is to get ready for wars that ought never to come!  It is a barbarous brutual, un-Christian doctrine – the doctrine of darkness, not the doctrine of the dawn.

     – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 192.

 

Love of money is probably more responsible for modern wars than any other one cause…the blood of many being shed to enrich a few.  

      – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 233.

William Jennings Bryan on this date 7/8/1896 at the Democratic National Convention, gave his famous speech 1896, supporting “the little man” of America, “You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold.” 

What a shame and pity that neither Democrats nor Republicans can find a man of like caliber today.  God be merciful to America.

Ninety-nine per cent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.

“It is not we little men who do the work but it is our blessed Creator working through us…other people can have this power, if they only believe.  The secret lies” – touching his Bible which was on his desk – “right here, in the promises of God.  They are real, but so few people believe them to be real.”

“My Home, Sweet Home”

Walking along life’s road one day,

I heard voice so sweetly say,

“A place up in heav’n I am building Thee,

A beautiful, beautiful home.”

 

Chorus

Home, sweet home, home, sweet home,

Where I’ll never roam;

I see the light of that city so bright,

My home, sweet home.

           – D L Moody, The Second Coming of Christ (Chicago:The Bible Institution Colportage Ass’n, 1896), 17.

 

The moment a man realizes that Jesus Christ is coming back again to receive His followers to Himself, this world loses its hold upon him.  Gas stocks, and water stocks and stocks in banks and railroads are of very much less consequence to him then.

           – D L Moody, The Second Coming of Christ (Chicago:The Bible Institution Colportage Ass’n, 1896), 18.
