Frasi Garrison Keillor

„Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.“

—  Garrison Keillor
Though Keillor has been quoted on the internet and in print as having made this or a similar remark, such expressions have been made by others, and may have originated with Billy Sunday, who is quoted as having said "Going to church on Sunday does not make you a Christian any more than going into a garage makes you an automobile!" in Press, Radio, Television, Periodicals, Public Relations, and Advertising, As Seen through Institutes and Special Occasions of the Henry W. Grady School of Journalism (1967) edited by John Eldridge Drewry.

„Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose.“

—  Garrison Keillor
As quoted in The Cat Lover's Book of Fascinating Facts : A Felicitous Look at Felines‎ (1997) by Ed Lucaire

„A book is a gift you can open again and again.“

—  Garrison Keillor
Attributed to Keillor in The Miracle of Language‎ (1999) by Richard Lederer, p. 149, this statement also appears in What‎? (1988) by Ronald Silliman, p. 28:

„We made our mistakes back in the 20th century, Lord knows, but we never nominated a man for president who brags about not reading.“

—  Garrison Keillor
Context: We made our mistakes back in the 20th century, Lord knows, but we never nominated a man for president who brags about not reading. Calvin Coolidge had his limits. Warren G. Harding spent more time on his hair than strictly necessary. Lyndon Baines Johnson was a piece of work. But all of them read books. When I envision a Trump Presidential Library, I see enormous chandeliers and gold carpet and a thousand slot machines. God help us. I mean it. We’re in trouble down here. "Garrison Keillor: God help us. We’re in trouble down here." in The Washington Post (26 July 2016)

„Gentleness is everywhere in daily life, a sign that faith rules through ordinary things: through cooking and small talk, through storytelling, making love, fishing, tending animals and sweet corn and flowers, through sports, music and books, raising kids — all the places where the gravy soaks in and grace shines through.“

—  Garrison Keillor
Context: To know and to serve God, of course, is why we're here, a clear truth, that, like the nose on your face, is near at hand and easily discernible but can make you dizzy if you try to focus on it hard. But a little faith will see you through. What else will do except faith in such a cynical, corrupt time? When the country goes temporarily to the dogs, cats must learn to be circumspect, walk on fences, sleep in trees, and have faith that all this woofing is not the last word. What is the last word, then? Gentleness is everywhere in daily life, a sign that faith rules through ordinary things: through cooking and small talk, through storytelling, making love, fishing, tending animals and sweet corn and flowers, through sports, music and books, raising kids — all the places where the gravy soaks in and grace shines through. Even in a time of elephantine vanity and greed, one never has to look far to see the campfires of gentle people. We Are Still Married : Stories & Letters (1989),, "The Meaning of Life", p. 217 <!-- Viking -->

„Nothing you do for children is ever wasted.“

—  Garrison Keillor, Leaving Home
Context: Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted. Leaving Home‎ (1987), p. 20

„I believe in looking reality straight in the eye and denying it.“

—  Garrison Keillor
As quoted in Precision Shooting : The Trapshooter's Bible‎ (1998) by James Russell, p. 54

„Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.“

—  Garrison Keillor, Leaving Home
Context: Thank you, dear God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough. Thank you for the rain. And for the chance to wake up in three hours and go fishing: I thank you for that now, because I won't feel so thankful then. Leaving Home‎ (1987), p. 9
