"The men doing the vital things of life are those who read the Bible and are Christians and not ashamed to let the world know it...No man can read the Bible and be lazy."
"You never read in history of any great man whose influence has been lasting, who has not been a reader of the Bible.
Take Abraham Lincoln and Gladstone. Their lives show that they have been readers of the Bible.
If you wish to properly direct your mind and necessarily your lives, begin by reading the book of all books.
Read your Bible every day, and you will find how healthily you will grow."
"People who stand for the most in the educational and commercial world and in the uplifting of the people are in some real way connected with the religious life...We ought to make the most of our religious life...
First the habit of regular attendance at some religious service should be cultivated...
Systematic reading and prayerful study of the Bible is the second..."
"Reference is made in the Bible to the freedom that comes from being a Christian. A man is free just in proportion as he learns to live within God's laws...
As we learn God's laws and grow into His likeness we shall find our reward in this world in a life of usefulness and honor."
-- Booker T. Washington
