Christmas Quotes

Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world - stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death - and that the blessed life which began in Bethlehem nineteen hundred years ago is the image and brightness of the Eternal Love? Then you can keep Christmas.

Henry Van Dyke

Somehow, not only for Christmas, But all the long year through, The joy that you give to others, Is the joy that comes back to you. And the more you spend in blessing, The poor and lonely and sad, The more of your heart's possessing, Returns to you glad.

John Greenleaf Whittier

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.

Burton Hillis (Better Homes and Gardens)

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.

Charles Dickens

She again rubbed a match on the wall, and the light shone round her; in the brightness stood her old grandmother, clear and shining, yet mild and loving in her appearance. "Grandmother," cried the little one, "O take me with you; I know you will go away when the match burns out; you will vanish like the warm stove, the roast goose, and the large, glorious Christmas-tree." And she made haste to light the whole bundle of matches, for she wished to keep her grandmother there. And the matches glowed with a light that was brighter than the noon-day, and her grandmother had never appeared so large or so beautiful. She took the little girl in her arms, and they both flew upwards in brightness and joy far above the earth, where there was neither cold nor hunger nor pain, for they were with God.

Hans Christian Andersen

What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.

Agnes M. Pharo

Peace on earth will come to stay, When we live Christmas every day.

Helen Steiner Rice

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.

Burton Hillis

What kind of Christmas present would Jesus ask Santa for?

Salman Rushdie

One of the things that Christmas reminds us is that Jesus Christ was once a child.

Hark Herald Sarmiento

"Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents," grumbled Jo, lying on the rug. "It's so dreadful to be poor!" sighed Meg, looking down at her old dress. "I don't think it's fair for some girls to have plenty of pretty things, and other girls nothing at all," added little Amy, with an injured sniff. "We've got Father and Mother, and each other," said Beth contentedly from her corner. The four young faces on which the firelight shone brightened at the cheerful words, but darkened again as Jo said sadly, "We haven't got Father, and shall not have him for a long time." She didn't say "perhaps never," but each silently added it, thinking of Father far away, where the fighting was.

Alcott, Louisa May

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, Just like the ones I used to know.

Irving Berlin

Christians... get Christmas under control. Seriously. It won't stop! It doesn't stop does it? It's always Christmas now! Make it the whole year! It's the only time you pricks are happy!

Lewis Niles Black

I didn't know the full dimensions of forever, but I knew it was longer than waiting for Christmas to come.
