J.R.R. Tolkien
“It's the job that's never started as takes longest to finish.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

George Eliot
“What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life--to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?”
George Eliot, Adam Bede

“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.”
John Joseph Powell, The Secret of Staying in Love

A.W. Tozer
“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers met together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become 'unity' conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.”
A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder

James Frey
“And as ridiculous as it may sound, sometimes all any of us needs in life is for someone to hold our hand and walk next to us.”
James Frey, The Final Testament of the Holy Bible

Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?

Lucy Mack Smith

Lucy Mack Smith

C.S. Lewis
“The next best thing to being wise oneself is to live in a circle of those who are.”
C.S. Lewis

Billy Graham
“Remember: He WANTS your fellowship, and He has done everything possible to make it a reality. He has forgiven your sins, at the cost of His own dear Son. He has given you His Word, and the priceless privilege of prayer and worship.”
Billy Graham, Hope for Each Day: Words of Wisdom and Faith

Alexandre Dumas
“Look, look,' cried the count, seizing the young man's hands - "look, for on my soul it is curious. Here is a man who had resigned himself to his fate, who was going to the scaffold to die - like a coward, it is true, but he was about to die without resistance. Do you know what gave him strength? - do you know what consoled him? It was, that another partook of his punishment - that another partook of his anguish - that another was to die before him. Lead two sheep to the butcher's, two oxen to the slaughterhouse, and make one of them understand that his companion will not die; the sheep will bleat for pleasure, the ox will bellow with joy. But man - man, who God created in his own image - man, upon whom God has laid his first, his sole commandment, to love his neighbour - man, to whom God has given a voice to express his thoughts - what is his first cry when he hears his fellowman is saved? A blasphemy. Honour to man, this masterpiece of nature, this king of the creation!”
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

N.T. Wright
“The church exists primarily for two closely correlated purposes: to worship God and to work for his kingdom in the world ... The church also exists for a third purpose, which serves the other two: to encourage one another, to build one another up in faith, to pray with and for one another, to learn from one another and teach one another, and to set one another examples to follow, challenges to take up, and urgent tasks to perform. This is all part of what is known loosely as fellowship.”
N.T. Wright, Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense

John Keats
“Wherein lies happiness? In that which becks
Our ready minds to fellowship divine,
A fellowship with essence; till we shine,
Full alchemiz’d, and free of space. Behold
The clear religion of heaven!”
John Keats

Margaret Atwood
“How shrunk, how dwindled, in our times
Creation's mighty seed -
For Man has broke the Fellowship
With murder, lust, and greed.”
Margaret Atwood

Stanley Hauerwas
“The church is constituted as a new people who have been gathered from the nations to remind the world that we are in fact one people. Gathering, therefore, is an eschatological act as it is the foretaste of the unity of the communion of the saints.”
Stanley Hauerwas, In Good Company: The Church as Polis

Russell Moore
“In the New Testament, we don't find our gift through self-examination and introspection and then find ways to express it. Instead, we love one another, serve one another, help one another, and in so doing we see how God has equipped us to do so.”
Russell Moore, Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches

Peter Jenkins
“It was as if we'd only been gone the weekend. Or had we been gone a lifetime. Part of that was because when you've lived in Alaska, living in other places seems easier, less challenging, less threatening. Alaska had enlarged each of us. No one is ever the same after coming back from Alaska.”
Peter Jenkins, Looking For Alaska

“In the mainstream, with its illusion of unlimited relational possibilities, we can counter dissatisfaction in relationships by simply moving on in search of the "right people." But community...demands we cultivate friendships with people we might not choose ordinarily. Founding friendship on commitment rather than "chemistry" often requires adjustment...At the end of the day, however, we have found that any loss of chemistry in relationships is more than made up for with gains in meaning.”
Jose Panate-Aceves and John Hayes

N.T. Wright
“As a newborn baby breathes and cries, so the signs of life in a newborn Christian are faith and repentance, inhaling the love of God and exhaling an initial cry of distress. And at that point what God provides, exactly as for a newborn infant, is the comfort, protection, and nurturing promise of a mother.

"If God is our father, the church is our mother." The words are those of the Swiss Reformer John Calvin ... it is as impossible, unnecessary, and undesirable to be a Christian all by yourself as it is to be a newborn baby all by yourself.”
N.T. Wright

“Ever console or scold people hurt in human relationships that satisfaction comes from God alone? Stop. Adam's fellowship with God was perfect, and God Himself declared Adam needed other humans.”
John Ortberg Jr., Everybody's Normal Till You Get to Know Them

“Your power depends on how much time you spend fellowshipping with God.”
Sunday Adelaja

“Seeking Intimacy with God and desiring Fellowship with Him, will make our calling in Christ sure.”
Santosh Thankachan

“Our fellowship with our Father must not be restricted in any manner to a church, room or building.”
Sunday Adelaja

Chris Matakas, My Mastery: Continued Education Through Jiu Jitsu

“Only the church can provide people with quality fellowship”
Sunday Adelaja

John Kasich, Every Other Monday: Twenty Years of Life, Lunch, Faith, and Friendship

Lailah Gifty Akita, Beautiful Quotes

Jerry Bridges
“God does not require a perfect, sinless life to have fellowship with Him, but He does require that we be serious about holiness, that we grieve over sin in our lives instead of justifying it, and that we earnestly pursue holiness as a way of life.”
Jerry Bridges, The Pursuit of Holiness

Criss Jami
“God loves each person, I believe; although, just like we do in our private homes, He reserves His kingdom only for those whom He enjoys.”
Criss Jami
