Quotes containing the word godly

1. No man is poor who has a Godly mother.
- Abraham Lincoln

2. I have met some highly intelligent believers, but history has no record to say that [s]he knew or understood the mind of god. Yet this is precisely the qualification which the godly must claim—so modestly and so humbly—to possess.

- Christopher Hitchens, The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever

3. I believe that a godly home is a foretaste of heaven. Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.
- Jani Ortlund
