At His birth a star, unseen before in heaven, proclaims Him come.
      - John Milton

The Pilot of the Galilean Lake.
      - John Milton, Lycidas (l. 109)

Across the chasm of eighteen hundred years Jesus Christ makes a demand which is beyond all others difficult to satisfy. He asks that for which a philosopher may often seek in vain at the hands of his friends, or a father of his children, or a bride of her spouse, or a man of his brother. He asks for the human heart; he will have it entirely to himself; he demands it unconditionally, and forthwith his demand is granted. Wonderful!
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne and I myself have founded empires; but upon what do these creations of our genius depend? Upon force, Jesus alone founded His empire upon love; and to this very day millions would die for Him.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

From first to last, Jesus is the same; always the same--majestic and simple, infinitely severe and infinitely gentle.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

If you (to General Bertrand) do not perceive that Jesus Christ is God, very well; then I did wrong to make you a general.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

Jesus Chris was more than man.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

The nature of Christ's existence is mysterious, I admit; but this mystery meets the wants of man. Reject it, and the world is an inexplicable riddle; believe it, and the history of our race is satisfactorily explained.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

Near, so very near to God,
  Nearer I cannot be;
    For in the person of his Son
      I am as near as he.
        So dear, so very dear to God,
          More dear I cannot be;
            The love wherewith he loves the Son -
              Such is his love to me.
      - Catesby Paget, Hymn

Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me.
      - Saint Patrick

But chiefly Thou,
  Whom soft-eyed Pity once led down from Heaven
    To bleed for man, to teach him how to live,
      And, oh! still harder lesson! how to die.
      - Bishop Beilby Porteus, Death (l. 316)

He, the Holiest among the mighty, and the Mightiest among the holy, has lifted with His pierced hands empires off their hinges, has turned the stream of centuries out of its channel, and still governs the ages.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Christ's miracles were vivid manifestations to the senses that He is the Saviour of the body--and now as then the issues of life and death are in His hands--that our daily existence is a perpetual miracle. The extraordinary was simply a manifestation of God's power in the ordinary.
      - Frederick William Robertson

Every unfulfilled aspiration of humanity in the past; all partial representation of perfect character; all sacrifices, nay, even those of idolatry, point to the fulfillment of what want, the answer to every longing--the type of perfect humanity, the Lord Jesus Christ.
      - Frederick William Robertson

It was necessary for the Son to disappear as an outward authority, in order that He might reappear as an inward principle of life. Our salvation is no longer God manifested in a Christ without us, but as a "Christ within us, the hope of glory."
      - Frederick William Robertson

Think of the majesty of that moment in this dying world's history, when Jesus Christ declared that to the Christian death was only a sleep. Outside of that small dwelling in Capernaum, a great race of men rushed and toiled as they harassed continents and seas; mighty events marshaled themselves into annals and pageants. What was inside? In one inconspicuous chamber of a now forgotten house, man's Redeemer, unobserved, martyred man's final enemy. There Immanuel subdued death forever.
      - Charles Seymour Robinson

If the life and death of Socrates were those of a sage, the life and death of Jesus were those of a God.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

That image, or rather that Person, so human, yet so entirely divine, has a power to fill the imagination, to arrest the affections, to deepen and purify the conscience, which nothing else in the world has.
      - John Campbell Shairp

In those holy fields,
  Over whose acres walk'd those blessed feet
    Which, fourteen hundred years ago, were nail'd
      For our advantage on the bitter cross.
      - William Shakespeare

Therefore, friends,
  As far as to the sepulchre of Christ--
    Whose soldier now, under whose blessed cross
      We are impressed and engaged to fight--
        Fourthwith a power of English shall we levy,
          Whose arms were moulded in their mother's womb
            To chase these pagans in those holy fields
              Over whose acres walked those blessed feet
                Which fourteen hundred years ago were nailed
                  For our advantage on the bitter cross.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (King Henry at I, i)

And on his brest a bloodie crosse he bore,
  The deare remembrance of his dying Lord,
    For whose sweete sake that glorious badge he wore.
      - Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene
         (bk. I, canto I, st. 2)

Christ pitied because He loved, because He saw through all the wretchedness, and darkness, and bondage of evil; that there was in every human soul a possibility of repentance; of restoration; a germ of good, which, however stifled and overlaid, yet was capable of recovery, of health, of freedom, of perfection.
      - Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley

You never get to the end of Christ's words. There is something in them always behind. They pass into proverbs--they pass into laws--they pass into doctrines--they pass into consolations; but they never pass away, and, after all the use that is made of them, they are still not exhausted.
      - Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley

The Christian world has a Leader, the contemplation of whose life and sufferings must administer comfort in affliction, while the sense of His power and omnipotence must give them humiliation in prosperity.
      - Sir Richard Steele

Thou hast conquered, O pale Galilean;
  The world has grown gray from thy breath;
    We have drunken from things Lethean,
      And fed on the fullness of death.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne,
        Hymn to Proserpine
