Nicholas Breton quotes

  • If one is to be called a liar, one may as well make an effort to deserve the name.

  • One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.

  • If you would be a better teacher, teach by the spirit. That is the thing that gives strength and power, meaning and life, to our otherwise weak efforts... remember, you cannot give away that which you do not possess. Study the life of the master. You do not have to have a college degree to be an efficient teacher. But you do have to become acquainted with the life and teachings of the master to be an effective teacher in the church.

  • God never can use any man very much till he has grace enough to forget himself entirely while doing God's work; for He will not give His glory to another nor share with the most valued instrument the praise that belongs to Jesus Christ alone.

  • No one man is superior to the game.

  • Men have presented their plans and philosophies for the remedying of earth's ills, but Jesus stands alone in presenting not a system, but His own personality as capable of supplying the needs of the soul.

  • Ale, man, ale's the stuff to drink for fellows whom it hurts to think.

  • My merry, merry, merry roundelay Concludes with Cupid's curse, They that do change old love for new, Pray gods, they change for worse!

  • The purpose of a relationship is to decide what part of yourself you'd like to see 'show up', not what part of another you can capture and hold.

  • Much ado there was, God wot; He woold love, and she woold not, She sayd, "Never man was trewe;" He sayes, "None was false to you."
