“It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations.” — Winston S. Churchill

I am not sure when I became a fan of good quotes, but it is a good thing I am, as puts me in great company with Mr. Churchill.  When I am at a loss for words and/or inspiration, I look up quotes on the subject.

With resurrection Sunday upon us, I found myself at a loss for words.  The subject of My Lord Jesus’ resurrection is precious beyond words, but it needs to be expressed.

Therefore, I turn to the words of others.  I hope the following thoughts will inspire you in your reflections about the awesomeness of what we celebrate this week.


  • “God is love and he has defeated evil.” – Pope Francis.
  • “A dead Christ I must do everything for; a living Christ does everything for me.”- Andrew Murray.
  • “Resurrection means that the worst thing is never the last thing.”- Frederick Buechner.
  • “The devil, darkness, and death may swagger and boast, the pangs of life will sting for a while longer, but don’t worry; the forces of evil are breathing their last. Not to worry…He’s risen!”- Charles R. Swindoll.
  • “Christ the Lord is risen today, sons of men and angels say. Raise your joys and triumphs high; sing, ye heavens and Earth reply.”- Charles Wesley.
