WASHINGTON GLADDEN
American clergyman and author
(1836 - 1918)

"But what an mortal man do to secure his own salvation?" Mortal man can do just what God bids him do. Be can repent and believe. He can arise and follow Christ as Matthew did.
      - [Salvation]

Gentle words, quiet words, are after all, the most powerful words. They are more convincing, more compelling, more prevailing.
      - [Words]

It is by speech that many of our best gains are made. A large part of the good we receive comes to us in conversation.
      - [Conversation]

Slander, in the strict meaning of the term, comes under the head of lying; but it is a kind of lying which, like its antithesis flattery, ought to be set apart for special censure.
      - [Slander]

The one injurious and fatal fact of our present church work is the barrier between the churches and the poorest classes. The first thing for us to do is to demolish this barrier. The impression is abroad among the poor that they are not wanted in the churches. This impression is either correct or incorrect. If it is correct, then there is no missionary work, for us who are pastors, half so urgent as the conversion of our congregations to Christianity. If it is incorrect, we are still guilty before God in that we have allowed such an impression to go abroad; and we are bound to address ourselves, at once and with all diligence, to the business of convincing the poor people that they are wanted, and will be made welcome in the churches.
      - [Churches]

When any duty is to be done, it is fortunate for you if you feel like doing it; but, if you do not feel like it, that is no reason for not doing it.
      - [Duty]

In the bitter waves of woe,
  Beaten and tossed about
    By the sullen winds which blow
      From the desolate shores of doubt.
      - Ultima Veritas [Sorrow]
