Humorous Quotes 😆

A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.

“To a man who lives unto God nothing is secular, everything is sacred.”

A sinner can no more repent and believe without the Holy Spirit’s aid than he can create a world.

You cannot make a sinner into a saint by killing him. He who does not live as a saint here will never live as a saint hereafter.

Beware of no man more than of yourself; we carry our worst enemies within us.

Humility is to make a right estimate of one’s self.

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to their tremendous difficulties.

None are more unjust in their judgments of others than those who have a high opinion of themselves.

Of two evils, choose neither.

Saving faith is an immediate relation to Christ, accepting, receiving, resting upon Him alone, for justification, sanctification, and eternal life by virtue of God’s grace.

Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite.

The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation.

The Lord gets his best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.

Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.

You cannot make a sinner into a saint by killing him. He who does not live as a saint here will never live as a saint hereafter.

You might not always get what you want, but you always get what you expect.

Learn to say ‘No’; it will be of more use to you than to be able to read Latin.

One night alone in prayer might make us new men, changed from poverty of soul to spiritual wealth, from trembling to triumphing.

Sometimes we think we are too busy to pray. That is a great mistake, for praying is a saving of time.

We cannot all argue, but we can all pray; we cannot all be leaders, but we can all be pleaders; we cannot all be mighty in rhetoric, but we can all be prevalent in prayer.

Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom.

We ought not to tolerate for a minute the ghastly and grievous thought that God will not answer prayer.

There are no crown-bearers in heaven who were not cross-bearers here below.

The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance.

“This day let us try to give and to forgive.”

“All sorts of sins may hide away in one sin.”

“He who fears God has nothing else to fear.”

“Charity and purity are the two garments of Christianity.”

“You must grow downwards, that you may grow upwards;”

“If we empty our hearts of self God will fill them with His love.”

“Anger does a man more hurt than that which made him angry.”

“If there are no adversaries, you may fear that there will be no success.”

“Do nothing when you are out of temper, and then you will have the less to undo.”

“I like to open the Bible and pray, “Lord God, let the words leap off the page into my soul; make them vivid, powerful, and fresh to my heart.”

“This world is dark as midnight; Jesus has come that by faith we may have light and may no longer sit in the gloom which covers all the rest of mankind.”

“The blood of the covenant takes every sin away, be it what it may; there was never a sin believingly confessed and taken to Christ that ever baffled his power to cleanse it.”

“Hang that question up in your houses, “What would Jesus do?” and then think of another, “How would Jesus do it?” for what he would do, and how he would do it, may always stand as the best guide to us.”

“Many books in my library are now behind and beneath me. They were good in their way once, and so were the clothes I wore when I was ten years old; but I have outgrown them. Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.”

“Nothing gives the believer so much joy as fellowship with Christ. He has enjoyment as others have in the common mercies of life, he can be glad both in God’s gifts and God’s works; but in all these separately, yea, and in all of them added together, he doth not find such substantial delight as in the matchless person of his Lord Jesus. He has wine which no vineyard on earth ever yielded; he has bread which all the corn-fields of Egypt could never bring forth. Where can such sweetness be found as we have tasted in communion with our Beloved?”

Easy roads make sleepy travelers…Depend upon it, it is in easy places that men shut their eyes and wander into the dreamy land of forgetfulness.

Courage, brothers! We need not be in a hurry. Let us in patience possess our  souls, for soon shall our souls possess light and gladness.

“The doctrine of justification itself, as preached by an Arminian, is nothing but the doctrine of salvation by works…I do not serve the god of the Arminians at all; I have nothing to do with him, and I do not bow down before the Baal they have set up; he is not my God, nor shall he ever be; I fear him not, nor tremble at his presence…The God that saith today and denieth tomorrow, that justifieth today and condemns the next…is no relation to my God in the least degree. He may be a relation of Ashtaroth or Baal, but Jehovah never was or can be his name.”

How marvelous the general apathy! they were all eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, till the awful morning dawned. There was not one wise man upon earth out of the ark. Folly duped the whole race, folly as to self-preservation-the most foolish of all follies. Folly in doubting the most true God-the most malignant of fooleries. Strange, my soul, is it not? All men are negligent of their souls till grace gives them reason, then they leave their madness and act like rational beings, but not till then.

True prayer is evermore true power. You may not always get what you ask, but you shall always have your real wants supplied. When God does not answer His children according to the letter, He does so according to the spirit. If thou askest for coarse meal, wilt thou be angered because He gives thee the finest flour? If thou seekest bodily health, shouldst thou complain if instead thereof He makes thy sickness turn to the healing of spiritual maladies? Is it not better to have the cross sanctified than removed? This evening, my soul, forget not to offer thy petition and request, for the Lord is ready to grant thee thy desires.

It is better for us to have God’s strength than our own; for if we were a thousand times as strong as we are, it would amount to nothing in the face of the enemy; and if we could be weaker than we are, which is scarcely possible, yet we could do all things through Christ.

I do not come into this pulpit hoping that perhaps somebody will of his own free will return to Christ. My hope lies in another quarter. I hope that my Master will lay hold of some of them and say, “You are mine, and you shall be mine. I claim you for myself.” My hope arises from the freeness of grace, and not from the freedom of the will.

If we were more like Christ, we should be more hated by His enemies. It were a sad dishonour to a child of God to be the world’s favourite. It is a very ill omen to hear a wicked world clap its hands and shout “Well done” to the Christian man…Far be it from us to seek a crown of honour where our Lord found a coronet of thorn.

Jesus is persecuted in every injured saint, and He is mighty to avenge His beloved ones. Success in treading down the poor and needy is a thing to be trembled at: if there be no danger to persecutors here there will be great danger hereafter.

Our business in this world is to conquer it for Jesus. We are not to make compromises but to exterminate evils. We are not to seek popularity but to wage unceasing war with iniquity. Infidelity, popery, drink, impurity, oppression, worldliness, error; these are all to be “put out.”

Better a brief warfare and eternal rest, than false peace and everlasting torment.

There are some people who cannot comfort others, even though they try to do so, because they never had any troubles themselves. It is a difficult thing for a man who has had a life of uninterrupted prosperity to sympathize with another whose path has been exceedingly rough.

“There is dust enough on some of your Bibles to write ‘damnation’ with your fingers.”

“And, beloved, though I have spoken of other joys, let me say, this is the cream of all of them, to know ourselves accepted in God’s sight. O! to feel that I , a guilty worm, am now feasting at his table with delight; that I, who once heard the voice of his anger, now listen to the notes of his love. This is joy—this is joy worth worlds.” –C.H. Spurgeon “Spurgeon’s Sermons” Vol. 3 (Baker) p. 145  (hattip: Still They Speak)

“Man became royal when Christ became human. Man was exalted when Christ was humiliated. Man may go up to God now that God has come down to man.”

Fear not, Christian. Let slander fly, let envy send forth its forked tongue, let it hiss at you, your bow shall abide in strength Oh! shielded warrior, remain quiet, fear no ill; but, like the eagle in its lofty eyrie, look thou down upon the fowlers in the plain; turn thy bold eye upon them and say, “Shoot ye may, but your shots will not reach-half way to the pinnacle where I stand. Waste your powder upon me if ye will; I am beyond your reach.” Then clap your wings, mount to heaven and there laugh them to scorn, for you have made your refuge God, and shall find a most secure abode.

  2. “Watch constantly against those things which are thought to be no temptations. The most poisonous serpents are found where the sweetest flowers grow. Cleopatra was poisoned by an asp that was brought to her in a basket of fair flowers. Sharp-edged tools, long handled, wound at last.”

  3. I wish, brothers and sisters, that we could all imitate “the pearl oyster”—A hurtful particle intrudes itself into its shell, and this vexes and grieves it. It cannot reject the evil, but what does it do but “cover” it with a precious substance extracted out of its own life, by which it turns the intruder into a pearl! Oh, that we could do so with the provocations we receive from our fellow Christians, so that pearls of patience, gentleness, and forgiveness might be bred within us by that which otherwise would have harmed us. ~Charles Spurgeon

  4. “I am persuaded that men think there is no God because they wish there were none. They find it hard to believe in God, and to go on in sin, so they try to get an easy conscience by denying His existence.” – Charles H. Spurgeon
