An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





To get a man soundly saved it is not enough to put on him a pair of new breeches, to give him regular work, or even to give him a University education. These things are all outside a man, and if the inside remains unchanged you have wasted your labor. You must in some way or other graft upon the man's nature a new nature, which has in it the element of the Divine.


William Booth (1829-1912, British religious leader, founder of the Salvation Army)


When you have understood that nothing is, that things do not even deserve the status of appearances, you no longer need to be saved, you are saved, and miserable forever.


E. M. Cioran (1911-1995, Rumanian-born French philosopher)


Don't matter how much money you got, there's only two kinds of people: there's saved people and there's lost people.


Bob Dylan (1941-, American musician, singer, songwriter)


The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness and human responsibility.


Vaclav Havel (1936-, Czech playwright, president)


The savior who wants to turn men into angels is as much a hater of human nature as the totalitarian despot who wants to turn them into puppets.


Eric Hoffer (1902-1983, American author, philosopher)


We do not want our world to perish. But in our quest for knowledge, century by century, we have placed all our trust in a cold, impartial intellect which only brings us nearer to destruction. We have heeded no wisdom offering guidance. Only by learning to love one another can our world be saved. Only love can conquer all.


Dora Russell


The first step in a person's salvation is knowledge of their sin.


Marcus Annaeus Seneca (BC 3-65 AD, Roman philosopher, dramatist, statesman)


Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended, but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward toward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.


The Holy Bible (Sacred scriptures of Christians and Judaism)


For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God., not as a result of works, that no one should boast.


The Holy Bible (Sacred scriptures of Christians and Judaism)

Source: Ephesians 2:6, 7


Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near.


The Holy Bible (Sacred scriptures of Christians and Judaism)


Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.


The Holy Bible (Sacred scriptures of Christians and Judaism)


Most of my songs are about Jesus. Most of my songs are about the idea that there is salvation, and that there is a Savior. But I won't mention his name in a song just to get a cheap play.


Peter Townsend (British singer, songwriter)


It is the final proof of God's omnipotence that he need not exist in order to save us.


Peter De Vries (1910-1993, American author)
