Gift Quotes

Praise is the only gift for which people are really grateful.

Lady Marguerite Blessington

Live as with God; and, whatever be your calling, pray for the gift that will perfectly qualify you in it.

Horace Bushnell

We don't know how God chooses martyrs. We do know that they give us the most precious gift they possess their very lives.

Csar Estrada Chvez

The vision of the gods without the power of the gods. What a terrible gift. A glorious gift.

Orson Scott Card

Each day is a special gift from God, and while life may not always be fair, you must never allow the pains, hurdles, and handicaps of the moment to poison your attitude and plans for yourself and your future. You can never win when you wear the ugly cloak of self-pity, and the sour sound of whining will certainly frighten away any opportunity for success. Never again. There is a better way.

Og Mandino

I'm glad I understand that while language is a gift, listening is a responsibility.

Nikki Giovanni

The true value of a gift is the sentiment behind the gifting.

Shri Radhe Maa

Nothing else matters much -- not wealth, nor learning, nor even health -- without this gift: the spiritual capacity to keep zest in living. This is the creed of creeds, the final deposit and distillation of all important faiths: that you should be able to believe in life.

Harry Emerson Fosdick

There is no gift more great than love.

James Branch Cabell

Now among the other things proper to recreate man and give him pleasure, music is either the first or one of the principal;and we must think that it is a gift of God deputed for that purpose'.

John Calvin

This damnable sex, boys - ah, you do well to writhe in your beds at the very mention of the word. All the evil of our modern times springs from unholy lust, the act of the dog and the bitch on the bouncing bed, limbs going like traction engines, the divine gift of articulate speech diminished to squeals and groans and pantings. It is terrible, terrible, an abomination before God and His Holy Mother. Lust is the fount of all other of the deadly sins, leading to pride of the flesh, covetousness of the flesh, anger in the thwarting of desire, gluttony to feed the spent body to be at it again, envy of the sexual prowess and sexual success of others, sloth to admit enervating day-dreams of lust. Only in the married state, by Gods holy grace, is it sanctified, for then it becomes the means of begetting fresh souls for the peopling of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Anthony Burgess

You do have to be fairly selfish when you have a gift. You cannot afford to let too many outside things get in the way.

Sarah Brightman

Dear young people, we have seen that it is the Holy Spirit who brings about the wonderful communion of believers in Jesus Christ. True to his nature as giver and gift alike, he is even now working through you. Let unifying love be your measure; abiding love your challenge; self-giving love your mission!

Pope Benedict XVI

A new generation of Christians is being called to help build a world in which God's gift of life is welcomed, respected and cherished-not rejected, feared as a threat and destroyed. A new age in which love is not greedy or self-seeking, but pure, faithful and genuinely free, open to others, respectful of their dignity, seeking their good, radiating joy and beauty - a new age in which hope liberates us from the shallowness, apathy and self-absorption that deaden our souls and poison our relationships.

Pope Benedict XVI

Take her as a gift, there shall be no ransom.

al-Walid, Khalid ibn
