Henry Drummond

Henry Drummond
“Why do we want to live for ever? Because we hope that tomorrow will bring us someone we can love. Because we want to live another day with the person we love beside us. Because we want to find someone who deserves our Love and who, in turn, will know how to love us as we deserve to be loved. That is why, when a man has no one to love him, he feels a great desire to die. As long as he has friends, people who love him and whom he loves too, he will live. Because to live is to love.”
Henry Drummond, The Supreme Gift
“Happiness... consists in giving, and in serving others.”
Henry Drummond

“He that dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God. God is love. Therefore love. Without distinction, without calculation, without procrastination, love. Lavish it upon the poor, where it is very easy; especially upon the rich, who often need it most; most of all upon out equals, where it is very difficult, and for whom perhaps we do the least of all.”
Henry Drummond

“You cannot give anything more important than the Love reflected in your own life. That is the one true universal language, which allows us to speak Chinese or the dialects of India. For if, one day, you go to those places, the silent eloquence of Love will mean that you will be understood by everyone.”
Henry Drummond, The Supreme Gift
“If we try to influence or elevate others, we shall soon see that success is in proportion to their belief of our belief in them. Greatest Thing in the World.”
Henry Drummond, Beautiful Thoughts
“Love is the fulfilling of the law." Did you ever think what he meant by that? In those days men were working the passage to Heaven by keeping the Ten Commandments, and the hundred and ten other commandments which they had manufactured out of them. Christ came and said, "I will show you a more simple way. If you do one thing, you will do these hundred and ten things, without ever thinking about them. If you love, you will unconsciously fulfill the whole law.”
Henry Drummond, Greatest Thing in the World and Other Addresses
“Never miss an opportunity to say I love you...Better still...Create them ╭❥❥❥╯”
Henry Drummond
“Patience. Kindness. Generosity. Humility. Courtesy. Unselfishness. Good temper. Guilelessness. Sincerity. All these things make up the Supreme Gift, and are there in the soul of whoever wishes to be in the world and close to God.”
Henry Drummond, The Supreme Gift
“Any experiment that can benefit by one hairsbreadth any single human life is a thousand times worth trying.”
Henry Drummond
“Humility—to put a seal upon your lips and forget what you have done. After you have been kind, after Love has stolen forth into the world and done its beautiful work, go back into the shade again and say nothing about it. Love hides even from itself. Love waives even self-satisfaction. "Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up." Humility—love hiding. The fifth ingredient is a somewhat strange one to find in this summumbonum: Courtesy. This is Love in society, Love in relation to etiquette. "Love does not behave itself unseemly.”

“Politeness has been defined as love in trifles. Courtesy is said to be love in little things. And the one secret of politeness is to love.”

“You know the meaning of the word "gentleman." It means a gentle man—a man who does things gently, with love. That is the whole art and mystery of it. The gentle man cannot in the nature of things do an ungentle, an ungentlemanly thing. The ungentle soul, the inconsiderate, unsympathetic nature, cannot do anything else. "Love doth not behave itself unseemly.”

“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
Henry Drummond, The Supreme Gift
“No es difícil soltar nuestros derechos; finalmente, son cosas externas a nosotros, ligadas a nuestra relación con la sociedad. Lo difícil es soltarnos a nosotros mismos.”
Henry Drummond, El Don Supremo
“El talento se desarrolla en la soledad; el carácter, en el río de la vida”.”
Henry Drummond, El Don Supremo
“the test of a man then is not, "How have I believed?" but "How have I loved?”

“I lived for myself, I thought for myself, For myself, and none beside— Just as if Jesus had never lived, As if He had never died." Thank God the Christianity of today is coming nearer the world's need. Live to help that on. Thank God men know better, by a hair's breadth, what religion is, what God is, who Christ is, where Christ is. Who is Christ? He who fed the hungry, clothed the naked, visited the sick. And where is Christ? Where?—"Whoso shall receive a little child in My name receiveth Me." And who are Christ's? "Every one that loveth is born of God.”

“The first element in a symmetrical life is work. Three-fourths of our time is probably spent in work. Of course the meaning of it is that our work should be just as religious as our worship, and unless we can work for the glory of God three-fourths of life remains unsanctified. The proof that work is religious is that most of Christ's life was spent in work. During a large part of the first thirty years of His life He worked with the hammer and the plane, making ploughs and yokes and household furniture. Christ's public ministry occupied only about two and a half years of His earthly life; the great bulk of His time was simply spent in doing common everyday tasks, and ever since then work has had a new meaning.”

“El poder de la voluntad no transforma al hombre. El Amor, sí.”
