Frasi Phillips Brooks

„O, do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men! Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks! Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle. But you shall be a miracle.“

— Phillips Brooks
Context: O, do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men! Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks! Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle. But you shall be a miracle. Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God. "Going up to Jerusalem", Twenty Sermons (1886), p. 330.

„Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee to-night.“

— Phillips Brooks
Context: p>O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by;Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light; The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee to-night.</p O little Town of Bethlehem (1868), reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).

„There are two ways of defending a castle; one by shutting yourself up in it, and guarding every loop-hole; the other by making it an open centre of operations from which all the surrounding country may be subdued. Is not the last the truest safety? Jesus was never guarding Himself, but always invading the lives of others with His holiness.“

Context: There are two ways of defending a castle; one by shutting yourself up in it, and guarding every loop-hole; the other by making it an open centre of operations from which all the surrounding country may be subdued. Is not the last the truest safety? Jesus was never guarding Himself, but always invading the lives of others with His holiness. There never was such an open life as His; and yet the force with which His character and love flowed out upon the world kept back, more strongly than any granite wall of prudent caution could have done, the world from pressing in on Him. His life was like an open stream which keeps the sea from flowing up into it by the eager force with which it flows down into the sea. He was so anxious that the world should be saved that therein was His salvation from the world. He labored so to make the world pure that He never even had to try to be pure Himself. Reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 108.

„Life comes before literature, as the material always comes before the work.“

— Phillips Brooks
Context: Life comes before literature, as the material always comes before the work. The hills are full of marble before the world blooms with statues. Literature and Life, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
