All outward means of grace, if separate from the spirit

It’s almost a social grace to get into the art world, and I’m very wary of it. Art was good in Berlin in the late ’70s – there was a lot more guts to art when the Neo-Expressionists were starting up; it was real slapdash; it has real heart to it – but it seems so cold and heartless in America. It’s a buyer’s market.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
As an inspiration to the author, I do not think the cat can be over-estimated. He suggests so much grace, power, beauty, motion, mysticism. I do not wonder that many writers love cats; I am only surprised that all do not.

The whole underside of our society has always been violence and still is. Churches, laws – everybody seems to think that man is a noble savage. But he’s only an animal. A meat-eating, talking animal. Recognize it. He also has grace and love and beauty. But don’t say to me we’re not violent.
Sam Peckinpah

Ricky Gervais

I have to be very humble. I know that anything I do is through God. Through me, God can make a miracle. The most you can do is to think and create all love, all grace, all power, all health. When you do that, amazing things can happen. But the day I think that I’m doing a miracle myself is a foolish day for me.

Joseph Prince
I remember the revelation it was to me when I realized I’d rather be smart in the way Elvis Presley was than in the way, say, Ludwig Wittgenstein was.

Martin Luther
It is one thing to have sin alarmed only by convictions, and another to have it crucified by converting grace. Many, because they have been troubled in conscience for their sins, think well of their case, miserably mistaking conviction for conversion.

Elizabeth Scott
Politics draws lines between people; in contrast, Jesus’ love cuts across those lines and dispenses grace. That does not mean, of course, that Christians should not involve themselves in politics. It simply means that as we do so we must not let the rules of power displace the command to love.
Philip Yancey
O rose! the sweetest blossom,
Of spring the fairest flower,
O rose! the joy of heaven.

His yellow locks adorning,
Dances with the hours and graces.

John Edgar Park
It’s one of the saving graces in a life, to be able to perceive one’s own and others’ absurdity, to notice our shared human frailties and be able, at least some of the time, to smile rather than grimace. Like most people, I must have started out with a comic worldview in my cupboard.
Jane Hirshfield
I receive grace. And through me, grace could flow on. Like a cycle of water in continuous movement, grace is meant to fall, a rain…again, again, again. I could share the grace, multiply the joy, extend the table of the feast, enlarge the paradise of His presence. I am blessed. I can bless.
Ann Voskamp
The word ‘grace’ means after we must have done everything humanly possible, we must leave the issue with God. That is grace.

Time and happenings and the grace of God are the best solvers of puzzles. One must leave much to these, if he is not to worry himself into premature senility.
Alex Dow
There has been a marvelous joyous carnival of mourning for Edith Piaf and Jean Coctaeau, and it was real! They died as they had lived, with style and grace and their proper eccentricity; and Paris loves anybody who can live anarchically and be delightful entertainment at the same time. So do I.
Katherine Anne Porter
All land, no matter what has happened to it, has over it a grace, an absolutely persistent beauty.

Pope Pius IX
The true Southern watermelon is a boon apart, and not to be mentioned with commoner things. It is chief of this world’d luxuries, king by grace of God over all the fruits of the earth.

Mark Twain
I need thy presence every passing hour; What but thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?
Henry Francis Lyte

Vimala Thakar
Poets like painters, thus unskilled to trace The naked nature and the living grace, With gold and jewels cover ev’ry part, And hide with ornaments their want of art. True wit is Nature to advantage dressed, What oft was thought, but ne’er so well expressed.
Alexander Pope
No sinner has the right to say with impunity, ‘God you owe me grace.’ If grace is owed, it is not grace. The very essence of grace is its voluntary character. God reserves to himself the sovereign, absolute right to give grace to some and withhold that grace from others.
R. C. Sproul
I think everyone can relate to that fall from grace – having life change in an instant or having to stand for some of your bad choices, that feeling of ‘Nothing is ever going to be good again.’
Molly Bloom
During ‘Will & Grace,’ we had so many things we had to go to where you get all dolled up. It’s like pulling teeth for me.

John Piper
Cut off from the Body into which alone the graces of Christ flow, you are deprived of the benefit of all prayers, sacrifices, and Sacraments.
Edmund Campion
If you want God’s grace, all you need is need, all you need is nothing. But that kind of spiritual humility is hard to muster. We come to God saying, “Look at all I’ve done,” or maybe “Look at all I’ve suffered.” God, however, wants us to look to him – to just wash.
Timothy Keller
Topher Grace is a really smart guy, and he really thinks about [acting].
Diane Keaton
The Gospel is about grace and we all know that grace is about us receiving from God blessings that we don’t deserve.

Grace Helbig
It’s not about the way you look
It’s not about your face
It’s all about the way you think

You’re like an oak tree growing in a flower vase
Mac Lethal

Max Lucado
‘St. Teresa’ is one of my favorites. It reminds me of the importance of grace.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Lady, you are the cruel’st she alive If you will lead these graces to the grave And leave the world no copy.

William Hendriksen
I love showing people that I wasn’t that guy, the guy in ‘Will & Grace.’
Sean Hayes
Never water down the Word of God, but preach it in its undiluted sternness. There must be unflinching faithfulness to the Word of God, but when you come to personal dealings with others, remember who you are- you are not some special being created in heaven, but a sinner saved by grace.
Oswald Chambers
I am blessed to be surrounded by the people I love. I thank them for their patience and grace.
Matt Lauer
We find no rest for our weary bones unless we cling to the word of grace.
Martin Luther
It is to be remedied that the false traitors will suffer no man to come into the king’s presence for no cause without bribes where none ought to be had. Any man might have his coming to him to ask him grace or judgment in such case as the king may give.
Jack Cade
The grace of God is dangerous. It’s lavish, excessive, outrageous, and scandalous. God’s grace is ridiculously inclusive. Apparently God doesn’t care who He loves. He is not very careful about the people He calls His friends or the people He calls His church.
Mike Yaconelli
Be sincere; be brief; be seated.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Grace has uprooted us from a barren wilderness of sin and transplanted us by streams of living water.
Steven J Lawson
God’s grace justifies sinners, but it never justifies sin!
Joyce Meyer
When I started, I was told that, for all intents and purposes, I was playing a human, which made it easier. Until they told me, ‘Grace, you’re a Cylon, she wouldn’t do that.’ And later, I learned that Cylons are actually more human than humans. This has been an ongoing exploration.
Grace Park
You cannot be too active as regards your own efforts; you cannot be too dependent as regards Divine grace. Do every thing as if God did nothing; depend upon God as if He did everything.
John Angell James
[Religion is] the attempt to be in harmony with an unseen order of things.
William James
For we can affirm with a good conscience that we have, after reading the Holy Scripture, applied ourselves and yet daily apply ourselves to the extent that the grace of the Lord permits to inquiry into and investigation of the consensus of the true and purer antiquity.
Martin Chemnitz
I love to give to charity, but I don’t want to be charity. This is why I have so much trouble with grace.
Donald Miller
God has nothing to say to the self-righteous. Unless you humble yourself before Him in the dust, and confess before Him your iniquities and sins, the gate of heaven, which is open only for sinners, saved by grace, must be shut against you forever.
Dwight L. Moody
Their sighing, canting, grace-proud faces, their three-mile prayers, and half-mile graces.

Without turning on the light, I went to my bed and lay down, my arm thrown across the mattress, my hand aching because Grace wasn’t underneath it
Maggie Stiefvater

June Singer
Grace-driven effort wants to get to the bottom of behavior, not just manage behavior. If you’re simply managing behavior but not removing the roots of that behavior, then the weeds simply sprout up in another place.
Matt Chandler
Grace is God as heart surgeon, cracking open your chest, removing your heart – poisoned as it is with pride and pain – and replacing it with his own.
Max Lucado
Hereby we may understand that God, of His special grace, maketh the teachers of the gospel subject to the Cross, and to all kinds of afflicitons, for the salvation of themselves and of the people; for otherwise they could by no means beat down this beast which is called vain-glory.

John Calvin
I am the biggest klutz on set. I honestly don’t think I have ever been as klutzy as when I’m on set. People call me ‘Grace’ ironically because I’m not graceful. It’s ridiculous.

What does it matter, all is grace.
Georges Bernanos
A single crocus blossom ought to be enough to convince our heart that springtime, no matter how predictable, is somehow a gift, gratuitous, gratis, a grace.

Megan Whalen Turner
The great task of life is transmission: the task of transmitting the essential tools and graces of life from our parents to our children

I avoid talking before the youth of the age as I would dancing before them: for if one’s tongue don’t move in the steps of the day, and thinks to please by its old graces, it is only an object of ridicule.
Horace Walpole
I have so many things to work on, and so many ways that I fail. But that’s what grace is all about. And I constantly wake up every morning trying to get better, trying to improve, trying to walk closer to God.

Johannes Tauler
If art can be at the service of anything, it’s about letting us see a state of grace for those people who rarely get to be able to be seen that way.

The dreariest spot in all the land to Death they set apart; with scanty grace from Nature’s hand, and none from that of Art.
John Greenleaf Whittier

Henry Miller
I sincerely believe that everything – everything – is grace, and you have to stick around long enough to see it through. I’m a very optimistic person.

Grace doesn’t cause people to live in sin; it frees them from the paralyzing effects of guilt and condemnation so that they can live holier accidentally now than they ever did on purpose before.
Andrew Wommack
All obstacles now vanish from my pathway. Doors fly open, gates are lifted and I enter the kingdom of fulfillment, under grace.

James Murphy
Grace is the pleasure of God to magnify the worth of God by giving sinners the right and power to delight in God without obscuring the glory of God.

Frances E. Willard
The winds of God’s grace are always blowing, it is for us to raise our sails.

Then I began to play. Variations on a G major chord, the most wonderful chord known to mankind, infinitely happy. I could live inside a G major chord, with Grace, if she was willing. Everything uncomplicated and good about me could be summed up by that chord.
Maggie Stiefvater
The humiliation I go through/when I think of my past/can only be described as grace./We are created by being destroyed.
Franz Wright
In order for us human beings to commit ourselves personally to the inhumanity of war, we find it necessary first to dehumanize our opponents, which is in itself a violation of the beliefs of all religions. Once we characterize our adversaries as beyond the scope of God’s mercy and grace, their lives lose all value.
Jimmy Carter
This then is salvation – when we marvel at the beauty of created things and praise their beautiful Creator.
Meister Eckhart
He is a male butterfly without the wings – the same kind of grace of a very young horse, so angular.
Mikhail Baryshnikov

From the edge of my country, as far as you see, looking east
Jackson Browne
You have to try to take what life throws at you with grace and equanimity.
Christina Baker Kline
In my view there are basically two types of weddings. There is the wedding that is based on law, and there is the wedding that is based on Christ and based on grace. We felt that those who have been married by the law, they would like to have that special privilege and benefit by being married by the church.
Bill Vaughan
Eyes that displace the neighbor diamond, and outface that sunshine by their own sweet grace.
Richard Crashaw
God’s grace is at its best in weakness, so we need never fear our weakness. In fact, these weaknesses will determine in what way we shall glorify God for all eternity.
Mother Angelica
Great use they have, when in the hands
Of one like me, who understands,
Who understands the time and place,
The person, manner, and the grace,
Which fools neglect; so that we find,
If all the requisites are join’d,
From whence a perfect joke must spring,
A joke’s a very serious thing.
Charles Churchill
The poverty from which I have suffered could be diagnosed as ‘Soho’ poverty. It comes from having the airs and graces of a genius and no talent.
Quentin Crisp
Any concept of grace that makes us feel more comfortable sinning is not biblical grace. God’s grace never encourages us to live in sin, on the contrary, it empowers us to say no to sin and yes to truth.
Randy Alcorn
The Bible NEVER flatters its heroes. It tells us the truth about each one of them in order that against the background of human breakdown and failure we may magnify the grace of God and recognize that it is the delight of the Spirit of God to work upon the platform of human impossibilities.
Alan Redpath
If I said I wouldn’t toss him out of my bed for eating crackers, would you leave me alone? (Grace) Maybe. What else wouldn’t you toss him out of bed for? (Selena) Eating greasy grimy gopher guts? (Grace)

When I saw that combination of grace and power, the fast and the soft, the yin and the yang, that’s what I’d been looking for.
Lou Reed
Grace is not simply leniency when we have sinned. Grace is the enabling gift of God not to sin. Grace is power, not just pardon.
John Piper
The highest point of Christian experience is to press forward. It is a distinguishing trait in the character of every good man that he grows in grace. Grace in the heart as certainly improves and advances, as a tree thrives in a kindly and well watered soil.
Gardiner Spring
Grace is love that cares and stoops and rescues.
John Stott
I didn’t want to look like anyone else – like Janis Joplin or Grace Slick. That’s why I never went to any of the big designers.

Ah, but is it not the mind that is the real grace of Homo sapiens? All the things to think about! All the things to read and appreciate! All the arts! All the things of the spirit!
Carol Emshwiller
If you want to enter a state of grace,
question the assumption you’re defending right now.
Byron Katie
As a pastor in a Protestant church, my whole ministry centers on the conviction that by grace we are saved through faith. And it’s not our faith that delivers us, as if believing something, anything at all were pleasing to God. It’s the object of our faith – Christ’s life, death, and resurrection – that saves us.
Kevin DeYoung
I love David’s prayer, “Search me, God, and know my heart…” [Psalm 139:23]. I prayed that a lot. “God, search my heart and my life, reveal to me any areas of my life that you want me to see, any identities you want to show me, and help me dare to believe that your grace has erased them once and for all.”
Matthew West
Thou hast created me not from necessity but from grace.
Solomon Ibn Gabirol
Mostly, I stand in awe of the every day women I knew from childhood that I interact with on Facebook. They struggle with juggling careers and raising children, endure hardships and occasional setbacks and yet do so with humility, grace and a sense of humor. Now that is inspiring!
Kambri Crews
Every breath we draw is a gift of God’s love; every moment of existence is a grace.
Thomas Merton
Jewelry is incredibly feminine, and reflects the grace and beauty of a women’s style like nothing else.
Ivanka Trump
There is one grace you cannot counterfeit . . . the grace of perseverance.

Silouan the Athonite
We all have within us the ability to move from struggle to grace.

Rachel Simmons
People moving in Heaven move with grace and beauty and slowly glide along with their feet hardly seeming to touch the ground!
David Berg
To finish a work? To finish a picture? What nonsense! To finish it means to be through with it, to kill it, to rid it of its soul, to give it its final blow the coup de grace for the painter as well as for the picture.
Pablo Picasso
My only saving grace is that I actually collect things that nobody else is interested in.
Phil Collins
Grace, then, is grace,–that is to say, it is sovereign, it is free, it is sure, it is unconditional, and it is everlasting.
Alexander Whyte
We are not meant to be seen as God’s perfect, bright-shining examples, but to be seen as the everyday essence of ordinary life exhibiting the miracle of His grace.
Oswald Chambers
The state of your heart dictates whether you harbor a grudge or give grace, seek self-pity or seek Christ, drink human misery or taste God’s mercy.
Max Lucado
‘The Grace of Kings’ draws on Western traditions as much as it does on Chinese traditions, though the bones of the story are drawn from the Chu-Han Contention period before the Han Dynasty.
Ken Liu
The world upon whom grace is thrust as a bargain will grow tired of it.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Jerry Bridges
Neither rings, bright chains, nor bracelets, perfumes, flowers, nor well-trimmed hair, Grace a man like polished language, th’ only jewel he should wear.
What do we want? What would we be at? What do our souls desire? Is it not that we might have a more full, clear, stable comprehension of the wisdom, love, grace, goodness, holiness, righteousness, and power of God, as declared and exalted in Christ unto our redemption and eternal salvation?
John Owen
I kind of limp along like so many of us do in these realms. Occasionally I’ve felt the grace of another presence in my life. But I can’t develop any kind of spiritual structure on that.
Leonard Cohen
Set all things in their own peculiar place, and know that order is the greatest grace.
John Dryden
I look forward to an America which will not be afraid of grace and beauty.
John F. Kennedy
This earth is my sister; I love her daily grace, her silent daring, and how loved I am. How we admire this strength in each other, all that we have lost, all that we have suffered, all that we know: We are stunned by this beauty, and I do not forget: what she is to me, what I am to her.
Susan Griffin
Money comes to those who act intelligently, and God to those who hunger for his grace
Shri Radhe Maa
Live a life of conspicuous grace and courageous resolve.
Bob Goff
The few days that I shot with Jayalalithaaji, I got to observe her very closely. I was very impressed by her grace, beauty, and dignity. She came to the sets with her mother. So did I. She remained aloof on the sets and didn’t speak much to anyone.
Hema Malini
You can’t resist the will of God and receive the grace of God at the same time.
Andy Stanley
The richest grace of ahimsa will descend easily upon the owner of hard discipline.

Herbert Harold Read
My courage comes from my faith. I have come to one conclusion: All that I am, all that I aspire to be, all that I was before, is by the grace of God. There are so many women in Africa, and outside Africa, who are more intelligent than I am.
Leymah Gbowee
There is no such way to attain to greater measures of grace, as for a man to live up to that little grace he has.
Thomas Brooks
Nor did I need anyone’s pity, but I would accept it with grace, because I have been well trained. Rudeness was a sign of weakness. Grace stemmed from power, the powere to accept anything and move on.
Robin Wasserman
The civil rights movement was devoid of grace; it was using some unfortunate people as means to a communistic end.
Samuel Bowers
Property exists by grace of the law. It is not a fact, but a legal fiction.

Lord Byron
Grace releases and affirms. It doesn’t smother. Grace values the dignity of individuals. It doesn’t destroy. Grace supports and encourages. It isn’t jealous or suspicious.

No Christian can be a pessimist, for Christianity is a system of radical optimism.

Grace Gealey
We can still see God in other people and do our best to help them find their own grace. So that’s what I strive to do and pray to do every day.

Eckhart Tolle
If you want God’s grace, all you need is need, all you need is nothing.
Timothy Keller
In the same way that I cannot be perfect and need grace for my mistakes, I also need to give my kids grace. I am constantly learning to be patient with them, understanding that they won’t do everything right all the time, while still holding them to a high standard, as their heavenly father does.
Benjamin Watson
Stress says that the things we are involved in are important enough to merit our impatience, our lack of grace toward others, or our tight grip of control.

Michael R. Burch
I was very blessed in always knowing what I wanted to do, and by the grace of God, I’ve been able to succeed in my chosen career.
Nichelle Nichols
I would like to comment on the God fiber within each living thing. This essence, this fiber of love and grace, runs in every vein, no matter how deeply buried. Each person has a God fiber, whatever their actions or hurt they have caused you or others.
Meredith L. Young-Sowers
Don’t be troubled if you don’t feel the love of God in yourself, but thing about the Lord, that He is merciful, and guard yourself from sins, and the grace of God will teach you.

In the Bible, we first encounter God when he sides with a bunch of slaves against a powerful Pharaoh, an act of grace freely given.
Desmond Tutu
We should give as we would receive, cheerfully, quickly, and without hesitation; for there is no grace in a benefit that sticks to the fingers.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
If you want to be in fashion you have to absolutely love what you do, because it’s more than a job – it’s your life. This is a very intense and hard business. But don’t worry, trust life. Anything you want, you are capable of getting, it just takes a combination of effort and grace.
Lori Goldstein
I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.

Grace arrived, like the big, loopy stitches with which a grandmotherly stranger might baste your hem temporarily.
Anne Lamott

John Frederick Boyes
Human beings are inherently misled into subjective fantasies, but there’s a saving grace. We all have different delusions. Other people don’t necessarily share yours, and hence they will help you penetrate yours through the miracle of criticism!
David Brin
And freedom comes with grace, kindness, understanding, and love. Don’t take anything personal, folks. Whatever is said about you or rumored or you heard something – you haven’t done anything wrong and it’s not your fault. That is your own self-invisible anchor that will stop your boat of life from going forward.
Gary Busey
Mindfully practicing authenticity during our most soul-searching struggles is how we invite grace, joy and gratitude into our lives.

Charles Spurgeon
I want to make movies like ‘The Upside of Anger,’ ‘Maria Full of Grace,’ old-school films like ‘Some Kind of Wonderful’ or ‘Vision Quest’: movies you remember songs and lines from.

Rick Riordan

Nehemiah Adams
The grace of God is infinite and beyond our ability to measure. His grace has no beginning and therefore no end.

Pope John Paul II
The roofs are shining from the rain,
The sparrows twitter as they fly,
And with a windy April grace
The little clouds go by.
Yet the back yards are bare and brown
With only one unchanging tree-
I could not be so sure of Spring
Save that it sings in me.
Sara Teasdale
What’s your name ? Hazel . No , your full name . Um , Hazel Grace Lancaster .
John Green
…if you ever wonder what you’ve done in your life, and everyone does wonder sooner or later, you have been God’s grace to me, a miracle, something more than a miracle.
Marilynne Robinson
You cultivate the subconscious by meditation, by sitting in silence and by not trying to control your thoughts. Then go someplace where you haven’t been before, or go for a walk, a run, and look for signs of grace-an epiphany, something that comes to you.
Joyce Carol Oates
As she watched him she understood the quality of his beauty. How his labor had shaped him. How the wood he fashioned had fashioned him. Each plank he planed, each nail he drove, each thing he made molded him. Had left its stamp on him. Had given him his strength, his supple grace.
Arundhati Roy
The saved are singled out not by their own merits, but by the grace of the Mediator.

Teaching unsupported by grace may enter our ears, but it never reaches the heart. When God’s grace does touch our innermost minds to bring understanding, then his word, which is received by the ear, can sink deep into the heart.
Isidore of Seville
Nature hath meal and bran, contempt and grace.
William Shakespeare
There is nothing more important to learn about Christian growth than this: Growing in grace means becoming like Christ.
Sinclair B. Ferguson
Don’t touch me. It makes my skin crawl. (Grace) Grace! I can’t believe you– (Selena) At least she didn’t spit in my face with her dying breath. (Julian) They shoot, they score. A direct hit straight through the heart and into the raw nerves. (Selena)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Heaven is a house full of miracles; yea, of spectacles and images of free grace.
Samuel Rutherford
True contemplation is not a psychological trick but a theological grace. It can come to us ONLY as a gift, and not as a result of our own clever use of spiritual techniques.
Thomas Merton
Different minds incline to different objects; one pursues the vast alone, the wonderful, the wild; another sighs for harmony and grace, and gentlest beauty.
Mark Akenside
Love tends to union with the object loved. Now Jesus Christ loves a soul that is in a state of grace with immense love; He ardently desires to unite Himself with it. That is what Holy Communion does
Alphonsus Liguori
These days we don’t have to fit into something other people think we are. We’ve leveled the playing field, life is inclusive. I’m a mom, sex detective, wife, fearless, gentle — we can now, with grace, be all of what we are.
Mariska Hargitay
Strength may wield the ponderous spade, May turn the clod, and wheel the compost home; But elegance, chief grace the garden shows, And most attractive, is the fair result Of thought, the creature of a polished mind.
William Cowper
The Holy Trinity doesn’t need our permission to carry on in their endlessly resourceful work of making all things new. That we are invited to catch even a glimpse of the splendor is grace. All of it, every breath and every second is grace.
Rachel Held Evans
Although my royal rank causes me to doubt whether my kingdom is not more sought after than myself, yet I understand that you havefound other graces in me.
Elizabeth I
Believe me, there is no more powerful means to obtain God’s grace than to employ the intercessions of the Holy Virgin.
Philip Neri
Once God and grace move us to the second half of life, religion becomes a mystical matter, rather than a moral matter.
Richard Rohr
He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.
Pablo Neruda
‎[Melisandre] “His Grace is growing fond of you.” [Jon] “I can tell. He only threatened to behead me twice.” Page 58
George R. R. Martin
Sin doesn’t always look sinful to us; sometimes it looks beautiful. That’s why we need grace to see sin for what it really is – dark, dangerous, enslaving and destructive.
Paul David Tripp
Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds.
Elie Wiesel
I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.
John Green
Hazel Grace,” he said. “Hi,” I said. “How are you?” “Grand,” he said. “I have been wanting to call you on a nearly minutely basis, but I have been waiting until I could form a coherent thought in re An Imperial Affliction.” (He said “in re.” He really did. That boy.)
John Green
Integrity… does not mean sinless, but it does describe a person who by God’s grace “sin less.”
Sam Storms
I know that through the grace of God, I am the founder of Manitoba.
Louis Riel
Live simply and without thinking too much, like a child with his father. Faith without too much thinking works wonders. The logical mind hinders the Grace of God and miracles. Practice patience without judging with the logical mind.
Elder Paisios of Mount Athos
This body is yours. No one can ever take it from you, if only you will accept yourself, claim it again–your arms, your spine, your ribs, the small of your back. It’s all yours. All this bounty, all this beauty, all this strength and grace is yours. This garden is yours. Take it back. Take it back.
Jean Hegland
Here, loved be God, is all well and truly determined for to resist the malice of him that had best cause to be true, the Duke of Buckingham, the most untrue creature living; whom, with God’s grace, we shall not be long till that we will be in that parts and subdue his malice.
Richard III of England
The life of faith is a daily exploration of the constant and countless ways in which Gods grace and love are expereinced
Eugene H. Peterson
The only thing harder than forgiveness is the alternative.
Philip Yancey
Grace means forgiveness-period.
David Jeremiah
Prayer is as necessary as the air, as the blood in our bodies, as anything to keep us alive-to keep us alive to the grace of God.
Mother Teresa
A man of meditation functions differently. Whatever profession he chooses, it does not matter. He will bring to his profession some quality of sacredness. He may be making shoes, or he may be cleaning the roads, but he will bring to his work some quality, some grace, some beauty, which is not possible without samДЃdhi.
I hope, by God’s grace, that I am truly a Christian, not deviating from the faith, and that I would rather suffer the penalty of a terrible death than wish to affirm anything outside of the faith or transgress the commandments of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jan Hus
When Christ comes with regenerating grace, he finds no man sitting still, but all posting to eternal ruin, and making haste toward hell; till, by conviction, he first brings them to a stand, and then, by conversion, turn first their hearts, and then their lives, sincerely to himself.
Richard Baxter
The partisan warfare fueled by modern technology does not fairly reflect the grace and dignity of the American people.
Rod Rosenstein
My chest ached, my body speaking a language my head didn’t quite understand. I waited. But Grace, the only person in the world I wanted to know me, just ran a wanting finger over the cover of one of the new hardcovers and walked out of the store without ever realising I was there, right within reach.
Maggie Stiefvater
Laughter is the closest thing to the grace of God.
Karl Barth
The High Divide, a novel about a family in peril, is haunting and tense but leavened by considerable warmth and humanity. Lin Enger writes with durable grace about a man’s quest for redemption and the human capacity for forgiveness.
Benjamin Percy
Often, it seems, we’re [Christians] perceived more as guilt dispensers than as grace dispensers.
Philip Yancey
We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest.
Oscar Romero
The grace to be a beginner is always the best prayer for an artist.
Julia Cameron
If the Lord should bring a wicked man to heaven, heaven would be hell to him; for he who loves not grace upon earth will never love it in heaven.
Christopher Love
I have no favourite genre or style but treat each novel with the same care, imagination and craftsmanship. It’s as difficult to write a crime or a children’s novel with a touch of style and grace as it is a literary novel.
Garry Disher
As by the revolt of the first man, the image of God could be effaced from his mind and soul, so there is nothing strange in His shedding some rays of grace on the reprobate, and afterwards allowing these to be extinguished.
John Calvin
A prayer may chance to rise From one whose heart lives in the grace of God. A prayer from any other is unheeded.
Dante Alighieri
Grace keeps us from worrying because worry deals with the past, while grace deals with the present and future.
Joyce Meyer
The Lord has given me to understand the value of at once confessing one’s sins after their commission. By so doing we are always in the state of grace.
Peter Julian Eymard
I’m talking to people all of the time. So it hasn’t really had a big impact. Access is never my main concern anyway. If you keep digging and making phone calls you can get stories and not have to rely on the good graces of the Pentagon spokesperson. I am not in his good graces.
Michael Hastings
Even from their infancy we frame them to the sports of love: their instruction, behavior, attire, grace, learning and all their words azimuth only at love, respects only affection. Their nurses and their keepers imprint no other thing in them.
Michel de Montaigne
The peace produced by grace is a spiritual stability too deep for violence — it is unshakeable
Thomas Merton
‘The September Issue’ is really a film about Anna Wintour’s relationship with long time ‘Vogue’ Creative Director Grace Coddington. The two of them have been working together for two decades, and the extraordinary symbiosis between them has left an indelible mark on the fashion industry.
R. J. Cutler
Think about the holes children make when they dig in the sand on the seashore. When the waves come in, the holes are swallowed up by the ocean. Similarly, when we know Christ, our physical death is overwhelmed by the love and grace of God. Death is swallowed up in the victory of Christ.
Billy Graham
Pride is the oldest and most common of sins. Humility is the rarest and most beautiful of graces.
J. C. Ryle
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace, Where never the lark, nor even eagle flew- And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod The high, untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
Honey, you need to get laid. (Selena) Why don’t you speak a little louder, Lanie? I don’t think the guys in Canada were able to hear you. (Grace) Oh, I don’t know. They’re probably headed south even as we speak. (Waiter)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
The world is Trouble…and Grace. That is all there is.

George Herbert
frustration, complication and misery are available in abundance, but so is God’s grace.

Rohit Shetty
Afflictions make the heart more deep, more experimental, more knowing and profound, and so, more able to hold, to contain, and beat more.
John Bunyan
There but for the grace of God, goes God.
Winston Churchill
We can choose to gather to our hearts the thorns of disappointment, failure, loneliness, and dismay in our present situation. Or we can gather the flowers of God’s grace, boundless love, abiding presence, and unmatched joy. I choose to gather the flowers.
Barbara Johnson
I have always looked up to Ileana for the way she presents herself. She is so full of grace and is a very honest person.
Athiya Shetty
You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Grace is openness. By remaining open, you let go of your ego and narrow-minded views, and allow divine grace to express itself through you.
Mata Amritanandamayi
We should be so joyful from God’s grace that others would respond by saying, ‘I wish I had your God.
Francis Chan
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shinning sea!

E. Stanley Jones
He rides pleasantly enough whom the grace of God carries.
Thomas a Kempis
I look at my grandmother, and she has this grace and class about her. When she walks into a room and sits down and talks to someone. Everything she does in life. I feel that women of her generation were really taught that.
Brie Bella
When I speak of a man growing in grace, I mean simply this – that his sense of sin is becoming deeper, his faith stronger, his hope brighter, his love more extensive, his spiritual mindedness more marked.
J. C. Ryle
I come from a very affluent family. I have been educated in one of the finest institutions of the world. Money was never a factor in my life: by the grace of God, I was blessed with a golden spoon.
Adnan Sami
The truth, whether we admit it or not, is that grace scares us to death. It scares us primarily because it wrestles control and manageability out of our hands – introducing chaos and freedom.
Tullian Tchividjian
Boxing is not always about standing in the middle going toe to toe. It’s about poise and grace under extreme pressure.
Peter Berg
We should die relying on grace alone
Martin Luther
There was Shawon Dunston and Mark Grace, and together we were a double play combination for ten years.
Ryne Sandberg
There’s a certain grace in accepting what your life is and embracing all the good things that have been – but there’s still an expectation of good things to come. Not necessarily what you expected.
Emmylou Harris
We suffer because we have no humility and we do not love our brother. From love of our brother comes the love of God. People do not learn humility, and because of their pride cannot receive the grace of the Holy Spirit, and therefor the whole world suffers.
Silouan the Athonite
The stresses of high-altitude climbing reveal your true character; they unmask who you really are. You no longer have all the social graces to hide behind, to play roles. You are the essence of what you are.
David Breashears
Fellowship is a place of grace, where mistakes aren’t rubbed in but rubbed out. Fellowship happens when mercy wins over justice.
Rick Warren
Nothing affects the heart like that which is purely from itself, and of its own nature; such as the beauty of sentiments, the grace of actions, the turn of characters, and the proportions and features of a human mind.
Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl of Shaftesbury
I was praying about what I needed to teach. I felt it wasn’t time to move out of the theme of Romans, which is salvation by grace through faith.
Max Lucado
There is no way of telling people that they are all walking around shining like the sun.
Thomas Merton
We’re all just ingredients. What matters is the grace with which you cook the meal.
Erica Bauermeister
Everyone praises Sachin Tendulkar. He may be a genius in his own right but in my book, Rahul Dravid is the artist. Dravid’s defence tactics, his strokes, his cuts, his grace are truly amazing. I’d like to meet the chap sometime and take my hat off to him.
Peter O’Toole
I see myself as a martial artist. I’m a creative fighter. It’s not about hitting the guy and hurting him, it’s about scoring points, with grace.
Chris Eubank Sr.
I was on the verge of something numinous and profound and in one more second the universe was going to crack open and arcana would rain down on my head like grace and all the cosmic mysteries were going to be revealed.
Kate Atkinson
Friends, suffering, marriage, environment, study and recreation are influence which shape character. The strongest influence, if you are generous enough to yield to it, is the grace of God.
Hubert Van Zeller
Love is self-explanatory: the right person makes you feel well nigh immortal, vaccinating you with their affections. So long as you remain in their heart you are safe, or better than safe even, for a while at least. You are momentarily, in a state of grace.
Jonathan Hull
I don’t mind being laughed at: that’s something I really don’t mind, and I think that’s kept me sane. My ability to laugh at myself and allow others to laugh at me has been my saving grace.
Kim Wilde
Rory… well Rory likes winning. No one has ever won with less grace than Rory Reid.
Chris Harris
From that moment, I did not cease to pray to God that by his grace it might one day be permitted to me to learn Greek.
Heinrich Schliemann
Our assurance, our glory, and the sole anchor of our salvation are that Christ the Son of God is ours, and we in turn are in him sons of God and heirs of the Kingdom of Heaven, called to the hope of eternal blessedness by God’s grace, not by our worth.
John Calvin
You want to protect your child from pain, and what you get instead is life, and grace; and though theologians insist that grace is freely given, the truth is that sometimes you pay for it through the nose. And you can’t pay your child’s way.
Anne Lamott
Gardening is the instrument of grace.
May Sarton
You know, I would date, if I could find a man worth shaving my legs for. (Grace)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Prayer is the deliberate and persevering action of the soul. It is true and enduring, and full of grace. Prayer fastens the soul to God and makes it one with God’s will.
Julian of Norwich
There is no doubt that God will never be wanting to us, provided that He finds in us that humility which makes us worthy of His gifts, the desire of possessing them, and the promptitude to co-operate industriously with the graces He gives us.
Ignatius of Loyola
To feel the grace of God in a painting of the dear, quiet commonness of a domestic interior, or in a landscape, seascape, cityscape, trains us to feel the grace of God in the thing itself in situ.
Susan Vreeland
Knowledge is folly unless grace guide it.
George Herbert
No work nor deed of ours whatsoever, no not faith itself, can be the condition of the covenant of grace properly so called; but only Christ’s fulfilling all righteousness.
Thomas Boston
The Czech ease has become my saving grace for traveling! Plus,with its light weight and small size, I save thousands of dollars every year in airline fees.
Esperanza Spalding
Performance leads to recognition. Recognition brings respect. Respect enhances power. Humility and grace in one’s moments of power enhances dignity of an organisation.
N. R. Narayana Murthy
Don’t cry for me, Grace. I’m not worth it. (Julian) Yes you are! (Grace) You are my saving Grace. Without you, I would never have known love. And I would never have known me again. (Julian)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Sin and grace, absence and presence, tragedy and comedy, they divide the world between them and where they meet head on, the Gospel happens.
Frederick Buechner
Now being in such grace and favor by reason I learned him some points of geometry and understanding of the art of mathematics with other things, I pleased him so that what I said he would not contrary.
William Adams
Iron till it be thoroughly heated is incapable to be wrought; so God sees good to cast some men into the furnace of affliction, and then beats them on His anvil into what frame He desires.
Anne Bradstreet
Vision is an important part of being a good editor, but so is teamwork and grace.
Clara Jeffery
If you take Christ out of Christianity, Christianity is dead. If you remove grace out of the gospel, the gospel is gone. If the people do not like the doctrine of grace, give them all the more of it.
Charles Spurgeon
We must not indulge our inclinations, as we do little children, till they grow weary of the thing they are unwilling to let go. We must not continue our sinful practices in hopes that the divine grace will one day overpower our spirits, and make us hate them for their own deformity.
Henry Scougal
I think I run my strongest when I run with joy, with gratitude, with focus, with grace. With that strategy in place I can push myself for pleasure, not punishment. Maybe you can only really go when you let go.
Kristin Armstrong
By God’s grace, ‘Abhinay Chakra’ has shaped up very well.
Put together all the tenderest love you know of, multiply it by infinity, and you will begin to see glimpses of the love and grace of God.
Hannah Whitall Smith
I’m becoming more and more myself with time. I guess that’s what grace is. The refinement of your soul through time.
In truth, we have delayed to pass sentence on the person of our lord the king, waiting, if perhaps he may, by God’s grace, repent; but we will pass it ere long unless he does repent.
Thomas Becket
Narcissus is the glory of his race: For who does nothing with a better grace?.
Edward Young
What interests you most is our present condition: it is what we would have desired, thorny and difficult, but it is made easier by the unction of grace and alleviated by an all-kind Providence whose help is never withdrawn and whose protection is felt at every moment.
Rose Philippine Duchesne
If I had to fall from Cassiel’s grace, at least I know it took a courtesan worthy of Kings to do it.
Jacqueline Carey
Your love in a cottage is hungry,
Your vine is a nest for flies-
Your milkmaid shocks the Graces,
And simplicity talks of pies!
You lie down to your shady slumber
And wake with a bug in your ear,
And your damsel that walks in the morning
Is shod like a mountaineer.
Nathaniel Parker Willis
Love is the crowning grace of humanity.
I see ‘Grace’ as an affectionate refusal of things that just aren’t true. With all our power and money and influence, we still can’t raise up high over people’s consciousness.
Lizz Wright
For I have learnt for a fact that nothing so effectively obtains, retains and regains grace, as that we should always be found not high-minded before God, but filled with holy fear.
Bernard of Clairvaux
It is a comely fashion to be glad; Joy is the grace we say to God.
Jean Ingelow
The room went dark and, after a moment, Grace whispered that she loved me, sounding a little sad. I wrapped my arms tightly around her shoulders, sorry that loving me was such a complicated thing.
Maggie Stiefvater
There comes a time in every relationship when it’s damaging to seek justice, when settling the score only stirs the fire. There comes a time when the best thing you can do is accept your brother and offer him the same grace you’ve been given.
Richard Walters
Grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better
Caroline Myss
Every blade of grass is a blade of grace, a grace note in God’s single Song. Nature is not blind and dumb. Nature is eloquent. Human science is blind and dumb if it does not hear this eloquence.
Peter Kreeft
The movement of grace toward gratitude brings us from the package of self-obsessed madness to a spiritual awakening.
Anne Lamott
The Church is not an enforcer of rules, but an outpost of grace
Brian Houston
If yon bethink yourself of any crime
Unreconcil’d as yet to heaven and grace,
Solicit for it straight.
William Shakespeare
For a Christian to say, “I will not have anything to do with the great and worthy works of artists whose lives were not good” is to fall into the impiety of questioning the wisdom of God in bestowing gifts of grace where He wills.
Frank E. Gaebelein
I would recommend these books: ‘Dream Big, Little One,’ by Vashti Harrison, ‘I Am Enough,’ by Grace Byers, ‘Hair Like Mine,’ by LaTashia M. Perry, ‘Hair Love,’ by Natasha Anastasia Tarpley… and of course, my book!
Skai Jackson
Grace always runs downhill, meeting us at the bottom, not the top.
Tullian Tchividjian
The Rosary is a treasure of graces
Pope Paul V
Loving-kindness is the better part of goodness. It lends grace to the sterner qualities of which this consists.
W. Somerset Maugham
When God’s justice falls, we are offended because we think God owes perpetual mercy. We must not take His grace for granted. We must never lose our capacity to be amazed by grace
R. C. Sproul
When the restlessness of the mind, intellect and self is stilled through the practice of Yoga, the yogi by the grace of the Spirit within himself finds fulfillment.
B.K.S. Iyengar
Some wars,” he said dismissively. “What am I at war with? My cancer. And what is my cancer? My cancer is me. The tumors are made of me. They’re made of me as surely as my brain and my heart is made of me. It is a civil war, Hazel Grace, with a predetermined winner.
John Green
Thankfully, while our self-righteousness reaches far, God’s grace reaches farther.
Tullian Tchividjian
And in thy own sermon, thou
That the sparrow falls dost allow,
It shall not cause me any alarm;
For neither so comes the bird to harm,
Seeing our Father, thou hast said,
Is by the sparrow’s dying bed;
Therefore it is a blessed place,
And the sparrow in high grace.
George MacDonald
I have met many Roman Catholic theologians who will emphasize as much as any good Protestant preacher that everything comes from the love and grace of God.
N. T. Wright
Social grace, inner discipline and joy. These are the birthright of the human being who has been allowed to develop essential human qualities.
Maria Montessori
The sinner is not the one who uses a lot of grace… The saint burns grace like a 747 burns fuel on take off.
Dallas Willard
I love people that are question marks. I love people that don’t have answers and are just trying to cope with it. I love people that just don’t tick boxes. There is a grace in them I can’t really find elsewhere.
Christine and the Queens
The B.C. spirit bear symbolizes the essence of the spirit of British Columbia. It is a powerful presence and a thing of wonder that lives in a magical land of beauty, grace and unbridled potential.
Gordon Campbell
Everyone is flailing through this life without an owner’s manual, with whatever modicum of grace and good humor we can manage.
Anne Lamott
What a way to learn great theology! That’s what comes to mind whenever I sing one of those old hymns. “And Can It Be” is like putting the doctrine of salvation to music. “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” is a melodic lesson in grace. No wonder good hymns make for strong faith!
Joni Eareckson Tada
God has the final word on your life and His word is grace.
Max Lucado
Some of my academic friends think Ive fallen from a very special grace.
A. Bartlett Giamatti
God’s love is his holiness reaching out to sinners; grace is but the price that his love pays to his holiness; the cross is but its victory over sin and death; and faith is but the way in which we bring our worship to him who is holy.
David F. Wells
In the weeks after 9/11, out of the pain and the fear there arose also grace and gratitude, eruptions of intense kindness that occurred everywhere, a sharp resolve to just be better, bigger, to shed the nonsense, rise to the occasion.
Nancy Gibbs
In order to see Christianity, one must forget all the Christians.
Henri Frederic Amiel
When you know in your bones that your body is a sacred gift, you move in the world with an effortless grace. Gratitude and humility rise up spontaneously.
Debbie Ford
I speak of God’s love and grace and redemption and freedom, but when I say “in the context of this community,” it is heard differently. To be with people so obviously broken, so obviously handicapped, and here to discover real joy and peace – that makes the Word of God come alive.
Henri Nouwen
Therefore I am sure that this, my Coronation, is not the symbol of a power and a splendour that are gone but a declaration of our hopes for the future, and for the years I may, by God’s Grace and Mercy, be given to reign and serve you as your Queen.
Queen Elizabeth II
God, give me grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed.

I glory in the distinguishing grace of God and will not, by the grace of God, step one inch from my principles or think of adhering to the present fashionable sort of religion.
Charles Spurgeon
There are endless treasures of grace waiting for those who will make even the most feeble attempts to pray. The weakest prayers yield grace.
Paul Washer
It cannot be that the people should grow in grace unless they give themselves to reading. A reading people will always be a knowing people.
John Wesley
In the whole history of movies, there has been nothing like Kubrick’s vision. It was a vision of hope and wonder, of grace and of mystery, of humour and contradictions. It was a gift to us, and now it’s a legacy.
Steven Spielberg
Grace will ever speak for itself and be fruitful in well-doing; the sanctified, cross is a fruitful tree.
Samuel Rutherford
A tension or difficulty can signal the approach of a new grace of God. But it has to be looked at wisely and humanly.
Jean Vanier
Heartbroken and in tears over the shocking death of my friend, the incomparable Ms. Whitney Houston. My heartfelt condolences to Whitney’s family and to all her millions of fans throughout the world. She will never be forgotten as one of the greatest voices to ever grace the earth.
Mariah Carey
Here on the pulse of this new day You may have the grace to look up and out And into your sister’s eyes, Into your brother’s face, your country And say simply Very simply With hope Good morning.
Maya Angelou
Only we big sinners have this grace of knowing what salvation really means.
Pope Francis
I grew up loving actresses or actors who were very classy but who seemed a little bit mysterious because you couldn’t grasp what they’re really thinking. I mean, Grace Kelly always looked impossibly glamorous, yet you could always see there was something behind her eyes.
Diane Kruger
Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
Like the wind, Grace finds us wherever we are and won’t leave us however we were found.
Ann Voskamp
When you try, God is there and you get the grace you need to get you through.
Helen Prejean
We can never reflect too much on God’s grace.
Sinclair B. Ferguson
Make less thy body hence, and more thy grace. Leave gormandizing.
William Shakespeare
The Light Queen’s voice stilled the turbulent waves of my soul, singing calm and grace to every fiber of my being. Neamh. Ah, there, I was pissed off again
Kiersten White
I worry about the men of your time, Grace. They all seem to be great fools. (Julian)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
By and large, the gospel of grace is neither proclaimed, understood, nor lived.
Brennan Manning
Win with grace, lose with dignity!
Susan Polgar
God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on. God had been taken out of our schools and lives, a nation had turned its back on God.
Mike Lindell
In our pugilistic take-no-prisoners era, preaching grace toward those on the other side of the political fence is decidedly countercultural.
Kirsten Powers
We have suffered from the preaching of cheap grace. Grace is free, but it is not cheap. People will take anything that is free, but they are not interested in discipleship. They will take Christ as Savior but not as Lord.
Vance Havner
Grace creates liberated laughter. The grace of God…is beautiful, and it radiates joy and awakens humor.
Karl Barth
Grace comes often clad in the dusky robe of desolation.
Francis Beaumont
Grace equals ability. God gives us grace to match our call. When we do our own thing, we do it on our own. When we follow His leading, He always supplies the grace and the energy to do what He’s calling us to do.
Joyce Meyer
The most powerful idea that’s entered the world in the last few thousand years – the idea of grace – is the reason I would like to be a Christian.
The secret was to just be cool, stay in God’s graces, and work it out.
Solomon Burke
Be attentive to the voice of grace.
Elizabeth Ann Seton
If I have observed anything by experience, it is this: a man may take the measure of his growth and decay in grace according to his thoughts and meditations upon the person of Christ, and the glory of Christ’s Kingdom, and of His love.
John Owen
I was probably about 22 years old when I recommitted myself to get off the fence and go all in and get serious about my faith. That’s really when I experienced God’s love and His forgiveness and His true grace.
Mike Fisher
The world, Govinda my friend, is not imperfect, not to be seen as on a slow path toward perfection: No, it is perfect in every moment, all transgression already bears grace within itself, all little children already have the aged in themselves, all the sucklings death, all the dying eternal life.
Hermann Hesse
I think of moving as a kind of saving grace.
Martin Puryear
You have given it all to me. To you, Lord, I return it. Everything is yours; do with it what you will. Give me only your love and grace. That is enough for me.
Ignatius of Loyola
The sin of capitalism, perhaps, is to make wants feel like needs, to give to simple silly stuff the urgency of near-physical necessity: I must have it. The grace of capitalism is to make wants feel like hopes, so that material objects and stuff can feel like the possibility of something heroic and civic.
Adam Gopnik
A man may just as soon read the Scripture without eyes, as understand the spirit of it without grace.

Richard J. Foster
If grace is so wonderful, why do we have such difficulty recognizing and accepting it? Maybe it’s because grace is not gentle or made-to-order. It often comes disguised as loss, or failure, or unwelcome change.
Kathleen Norris
Grace and remembrance be to you both.
William Shakespeare
The arms of love encompass you with your present, your past, your future, the arms of love gather you together.

The Graces was a great experience; it’s great working with women, but we weren’t put together in an organic way, and I think that’s why we didn’t stay together. There wasn’t that natural friendship.

Thomas Brooks
When the course of experience made me see that there is no saviour and no special grace, no remission beyond the human, that pain is to be endured and fades, if it fades, only with time, then God became nothing to me but a dyslexic dog, with neither bark nor bite.

Candace Bushnell
As we grow detached from things, we come (with God’s help) to master our desires, and we give the mastery over to God. Discipline and divine grace heal the intellect and the will of the effects of concupiscence. We can begin to see things clearly.
Scott Hahn

Dwight L. Moody
I had seen the ballet of ‘Swan Lake’ as a child but it was as an adult, when I saw a production featuring Erik Bruhn, that I first noticed how significant a part the ever-present threat of violence played. This juxtaposition of great beauty and grace with a backdrop of pure evil stayed with me for years.
Walter Dean Myers
It is not that we keep His commandments first and that then He loves but that He loves us and then we keep His commandments. This is that grace which is revealed to the humble but hidden from the proud.
Saint Augustine
It is very possible to be proud of the spiritual gifts God has entrusted to us and to strut about ostentatiously, forgetting that we have nothing which we have not received, that grace is a gift, an undeserved favor. We can actually be filled with pride at the eloquence and brilliance of our sermon on humility.
J. Oswald Sanders
Estimates are that in 2012, more than 32 million books were available – the explosion, thanks to the ease of self-publishing; 2013 could see even more titles grace our virtual bookstores! That means we are going to be awash in covers and titles, plot descriptions and characters.
M. J. Rose
For me, the arts has always been sort of my saving grace.
Black Thought

Maggie Stiefvater
God’s children improve all advantages to advance their grand end; they labour to grow better by blessings and crosses, and to make sanctified use of all things.

In taste and imagination, in the graces of style, in the arts of persuasion, in the magnificence of public works, the ancients were at least our equals.
Thomas B. Macaulay
How can you sing of amazing grace and all God’s wonders without using your hands?
Mahalia Jackson
Our lives are of great worth if we accept with good grace the situation Providence places us in, and go on living lovingly.
Takashi Nagai
Of all faults the greatest is the excess of impious terror, dishonoring divine grace. He who despairs wants love, wants faith; for faith, hope, and love are three torches which blend their light together, nor does the one shine without the other.
Pietro Metastasio
Few souls understand what God would effect in them if they should give themselves entirely into his hands and allow his grace to act.

Jerry Bridges
Safe from the Neighbors is a novel of unusual richness and depth, one that’s as wise about the small shocks within a marriage as it is about the troubled history of Mississippi. Steve Yarbrough is a formidably talented novelist, shuttling between the past and present with a grace that feels effortless.
Tom Perrotta
Grace and gratitude belong together like heaven and earth. Gratitude evokes grace like the voice and echo. Gratitude follows grace as thunder follows lightning.
Karl Barth
I really looked up to Grace Kelly when I was growing up. I thought she was just so beautiful and elegant. I wanted to grow up to be like her.
Jessica Jung
Verily, great grace may go with a little gift; and precious are all things that come from friends.
Make sure you are safe, and never ever put yourself in a compromising situation, but once that is checked off the list, I think it’s really important for us to remember that someone needs us, and that your act of giving/helping/doing can truly become an act of grace once you get out of your head.
Meghan Markle
The gods, after all, are only human, and once their rage has been placated they are perfectly capable of acts of mercy and grace.
Thomas M. Disch
I was twenty when I discovered war and photography. I can’t say that I wanted to bear witness and change the world. I had no good moral reasons: I just loved adventure, I loved the poetry of war, the poetry of chaos, and I found that there was a kind of grace in weaving between the bullets.
Luc Delahaye
Honestly, the All In women’s locker room was such an inspirational group of women. What I love about all the women involved – Chelsea, Britt, Madison, Jordynne Grace, Brandi Rhodes, Tenille Dashwood, Penelope Ford, Mandy Leon – is we all bring something so different to the table for a common vision.
Tessa Blanchard
It is the Sacrament of Love that excites the soul to ardent prayer. It stirs up the virtue of impetration and, as it were, forces God to grant our petition. It deepens the abyss of humility, above all it enkindles the flame of love in the heart; hence the Sacrament is the Gift of gifts, and the Grace of graces
Angela of Foligno
I’m a theological writer mistaken for a political writer. My theme is grace versus karma.

William Shakespeare
God’s blessings are dispensed according to the riches of his grace, not according to the depth of our faith.
Max Lucado
Cate Blanchett is mesmerizing. I don’t know why. It’s beyond my understanding. Why we all want to work with her is she elevates the rest of us. She’s just got some ethereal grace and elegance that’s beyond me, and an acute understanding of human nature. She’s just exquisite. She’s otherworldly.
Brad Pitt
The cost for the recipient of God’s grace is nothing, and no price could be higher for arrogant people to pay.
Dan B. Allender

Kirby Larson
By God’s grace and strength of my work, I’ve managed to build a respectable image that I use to serve both my continent and my country.
Samuel Eto’o
Frequently renew settled and holy resolutions. A soldier unresolved to fight may be easily defeated…The weakness of our graces, the strength of our temptations, and the diligence of our spiritual enemies, require strong resolutions.

Oswald Chambers
Because it is only my brother and I who know what it is like to walk in the shadow and fill the shoes of larger-than-life parents. And I am biased, but even so, it is true – he does it with the kind of grace a lesser man wouldn’t be able to.

Ravi Zacharias
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
John Mark McMillan
Let God’s grace be the mosque, and devotion the prayer mat. Let the Quran be the good conduct. Let modesty be compassion, good manners fasting, you should be a Muslim the like of this. Let good deeds be your Kaaba and truth be your mentor. Your Kalma be your creed and prayer, God would then vindicate your honour.
Guru Nanak

America was never innocent. We popped our cherry on the boat over and looked back with no regrets. You can’t ascribe our fall from grace to any single event or set of circumstances. You can’t lose what you lacked at conception.
James Ellroy
“After you were bitten, i knew what would happen. I waited for you to change, every night, so i could bring you back and keep you from getting hurt.” “How long did you wait?” “I haven’t stopped.”

Much truth compressing in a narrow space;
Then many shall peruse, but few complain,
And envy frown, and critics snarl in vain.

Charles Spurgeon
GRACE: All you can do is take it.
Charles R. Swindoll
One by one, these disciples would infect the nations with grace. It wasn’t a call to take the sword or the throne and force the world to bow. Rather, they were to live the contagious love of God, to woo the nations into a new future.
Shane Claiborne

Krishna Das

Grace is not a strange, magic substance which is subtly filtered into our souls to act as a kind of spiritual penicillin. Grace is unity, oneness within ourselves, oneness with God.
Thomas Merton
The true Love Dare. To move into His presence and listen to His love unending and know the grace uncontainable. This is the vault of the miracles. The only thing that can change us, the world, is this- all His love.
Ann Voskamp
The children of believing parents, at least their next and immediate seed, even of us Gentiles now under the gospel, are included by God within the covenant of grace.
Thomas Goodwin
The flame of Christian ethics is still our highest guide.
Winston Churchill
The ‘means of grace’ are such as Bible reading, private prayer, and regularly worshiping God in Church, wherein one hears the Word taught and participates in the Lord’s Supper.

J. C. Ryle
I recognize the delivery of grace to my day, even if I cannot identify a specific return address.
Mary Anne Radmacher
Cole made a hissing sound. “Are you inside yet? God bless America and all her sons. What is taking you so long?” The front door was locked. “Here, talk to Grace” “Mommy isn’t going to give a different answer than Daddy,” Cole said, but I handed her the phone anyway.
Maggie Stiefvater
Those who say in simple surrender ‘Yes, Lord,’ emerge from the experience spiritually rich, and become a source of grace and encouragement to others who are hurting.
Nancy Leigh DeMoss
We cannot arrive at the perfect possession of God in this life, and that is why we are travelling and in darkness. But we already possess Him by grace, and therefore in that sense we have arrived and are dwelling in the light. But oh! How far have I to go to find You in Whom I have already arrived!
Thomas Merton
Augustine does not disagree with this when he teaches that it is a faculty of the reason and the will to choose good with the assistance of grace; evil, when grace is absent.

Randy Alcorn
… learning humility is a prerequisite for grace.
Philip Yancey
God’s mercy and grace give me hope – for myself, and for our world.
Billy Graham
The slave of the belly ponders the menu with which to celebrate the feast. The servant of God, however, thinks of the graces that may enrich him.
John Climacus
If you have nothing of the spirit of prayer, nothing of the love of the brotherhood, nothing of mortifying the spirit of the world, nothing of growth in grace, of cordial, habitual, persevering obedience to the Divine commands, how can it be that you have been brought nigh by the blood of Christ?
Gardiner Spring
It is easy to forget that the most important aspect of comedy, after all, its great saving grace, is its ambiguity. You can simultaneously laugh at a situation, and take it seriously.
Stephen Fry
I experience religious dread whenever I find myself thinking that I know the limits of God’s grace, since I am utterly certain it exceeds any imagination a human being might have of it. God does, after all, so love the world.

Jill Briscoe
Somewhere between raising hell and amazing grace, Lord I know just how they feel.

If you are satisfied, you are satisfied, regardless of whether you are healthy, free, and active, or are limited in some way.
Esther Smith
I think there is a complicated side effect to overcoming evil in that we are forever changed by it. I think after we ingest some of the cruelty of the world, it takes years off of our lives, but it also gives us wisdom and a little grace, hopefully a sense of compassion.
Adam Rapp
Love and Dread are brethren, and they are rooted in us by the Goodness of our Maker, and they shall never be taken from us without end. We have of nature to love and we have of grace to love: and we have of nature to dread and we have of grace to dread.

Marcus Tullius Cicero
Maybe it’s animalness that will make the world right again: the wisdom of elephants, the enthusiasm of canines, the grace of snakes, the mildness of anteaters. Perhaps being human needs some diluting.
Carol Emshwiller
And yet, because I love thee, I obtain From that same love this vindicating grace, To live on still in love, and yet in vain
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
God’s grace in saving miserable sinners has been replaced by heretical teaching, such as saying that it is because we are so valuable that Christ came to redeem us. Not all who hold self-esteem views go so far, but many do.
Jay Adams
With the word creative we stand under a mystery. And from time to time that mystery, as if it were a sun, sends down upon one head or another, a sudden shaft of light – by grace, one feels, rather than deserving, for it always is something given, free, unsought, unexpected.

And Jonas delivers his songs with a power, joy, and grace that last long after the last note is played. The world needs this music!
Marci Shimoff
Speaking out against rap music is useless, and it’s futile. The reality is there’s criticism for everything, but Jay-Z is one of the most remarkable artists of our time of any genre, and as a hip-hop artist he carries the weight of that art form with such splendor and grace and genius.
Michael Eric Dyson

Football was my saving grace so I want to let people know that you can achieve whatever you want. People like to concentrate on what you can’t do, so let’s preach what you can. Why would I want to talk about not being quick when I’m strong? That’s what I want to get across.
Adebayo Akinfenwa

Leslie Jordan
The rivers of Grace cannot flow uphill, up the steep cliff of the proud man’s heart.
Bernard of Clairvaux

Matthew Henry
Grace happens every day.
Bo Sanchez
Virtue, without the graces, is like a rich diamond unpolished–it hardly looks better than a common pebble; but when the hand of the master rubs off the roughness, and forms the sides into a thousand brilliant surfaces, it is then that we acknowledge its worth, admire its beauty, and long to wear it in our bosoms.
Jane Porter
If I were ever to go mad it would be on Thanksgiving Day, that day of guilt and grace when the family hangs upon you like an ax over a sacrificial victim, like the oven’s heat on that poor bird.

Richard Cecil
True modesty is a discerning grace
And only blushes in the proper place;

William Carey
Oh, you weak, beautiful people who give up with such grace. What you need is someone to take hold of you–gently, with love, and hand your life back to you, like something gold you let go of–and I can! I’m determined to do it–and nothing’s more determined than a cat on a tin roof–is there?
Tennessee Williams

C. J. Mahaney
Grace: I picked up my sweater from the floor and crawled back into bed. Shoving my pillow aside, I balled up the sweater to use instead. I fell asleep to the scent of my wolf. Pine needles, cold rain, earthy perfume, coarse bristles on my face. It was almost like he was there.
Maggie Stiefvater

Frederick Lenz
Worship is not a repetitious exercise of rituals and formulas. These create a veil that actually prevents us from enjoying the presence of the Lord.

Suze Orman
This is the glory and miracle of grace, that God, through the Holy Spirit, is able to transform a stubborn, rebellious, and unbelieving will into a passionate, obedient, believing will without violating the integrity of the individual or diminishing the voluntary nature of one’s decision to trust Christ for salvation.
Sam Storms
The young people, they don’t knock on the door politely and say “May I come in?” They barge in, they take your seat, and you’re obsolete unless you recreate and somehow find grace somewhere else. Another profession may not be like that.

Guru Nanak
I want a painting to be difficult to do. The more obstacles, obstructions, problems – if they don’t overwhelm – the better. I would like to feel that I am involved at any stage of the painting with all its moments, not just this ‘now’ moment where a superficial grace is so available.
Richard Diebenkorn

Dick Gregory
Gratitude is what we radiate when we experience grace, and the soul was made to run on grace the way a 747 runs on rocket fuel.
John Ortberg
The key to Christian living is a thirst and hunger for God. And one of the main reasons people do not understand or experience the sovereignty of grace and the way it works through the awakening of sovereign joy is that their hunger and thirst for God is so small.
John Piper
Salvation is from our side a choice, from the divine side it is a seizing upon, an apprehending, a conquest by the Most High God. Our ‘accepting’ and ‘willing’ are reactions rather than actions. The right of determination must always remain with God.

Most of the time, it’s pretending I’m somebody else to get into a different head space. A lot of times, it’s just, ‘Who do I want to be onstage tonight? Is it going to be Marc Bolan, or is it going to be Grace Jones, or Roy Orbison?’
David, Moses, Saul of Tarsus, these were all people who did terrible terrible things  –  they were murderers. The Bible would be a lot shorter without grace.

Which we more hunt for than the grace of God!

James MacDonald
When I say the grace of wildness, what I mean is its autonomy, its self-possession, the fact that it has nothing to do with us. The grace is in the separation, the distance, the sense of a self-sustaining way of life.
Verlyn Klinkenborg
I feel the same way about solitude as some people feel about the blessing of the church. It’s the light of grace for me. I never close my door behind me without the awareness that I am carrying out an act of mercy toward myself.
Peter HГёeg

Johnnie Moore, Jr.
What I am looking for is a certain grace.
