Quotes of the Day for 11 April 2004 – Easter

We had a great celebration of the Vigil of Easter last night, and though I don't normally force religion into these daily missives, that's where my mind is this morning. May blessings abound for all of you. Alleluia!

The quotes:

To endure the cross is not tragedy; it is the suffering which is the fruit of an exclusive allegiance to Jesus Christ.
     - Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 1906 - 1945

O! if there were a continuance of days like this, the dead would arise out of their graves; the air has resurrection in it!
     - Eugenie de Guerin

Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.
     - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1807 - 1882

No man ought to lay a cross upon himself, or to adopt tribulation, as is done in popedom; but if a cross or tribulation come upon him, then let him suffer it patiently, and know that it is good and profitable for him.
     - Martin Luther, 1483 - 1546

The weightiest end of the cross of Christ that is laid upon you, lieth upon your strong Savior.
     - Samuel Rutherford, 1600 - 1661

No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.
     - William Penn, 1621 - 1670
