William Barclay 1907-1978

  • "There are two great days in a person's life — the day we are born and the day we discover why."
  • "Prayer will never do our work for us; what it will do is to strengthen us for work which must be done."
  • "The glory of God is not that of a despotic tyrant, but the splendour of love before which we fall not in abject terror but lost in wonder, love and praise."
  • "Loyalty to Christ may produce a cross on earth, but it brings a crown in eternity."
  • "The people who get the best out of others are those who insist on seeing them at their best."
