Easter quips and quotations

There would be no Christmas if there was no Easter. Gordon B. Hinckley

Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there. Clarence W. Hall

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances. Robert Flatt

The great gift of Easter is hope—Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake. Basil Hume

Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our
song. Pope John Paul II

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time. Martin Luther

On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer. Douglas Horton

Easter tells us of something children can’t understand, because it addresses things they don’t yet have to know: the weariness of life, the pain, the profound loneliness and hovering fear of meaninglessness. Frederica Mathewes-Green

The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice. Henry Knox Sherrill
