Quotes by Henry Ward Beecher

Faith is spiritualized imagination.

The soul without imagination is what an observatory would be without a telescope.

Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven.

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.

Tears are often the telescope by which men see far into heaven.

Good nature is worth more than knowledge, more than money, more than honor, to the persons who possess it.

The advertisements in a newspaper are more full knowledge in respect to what is going on in a state or community than the editorial columns are.

Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself.

We never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves.

There is no friendship, no love, like that of the parent for the child.
