Samuel Hopkins Quotes

May you find comfort and joy in these encouraging quotes by Samuel Hopkins.

However, I am willing to hear what you can produce
from Scripture in favor of any kind of slavery.
- Samuel Hopkins

Willingness to be damned for the glory of God.
- Samuel Hopkins

Furthermore, the slaves cannot be put into a more wretched situation,
ourselves being judges, and the community cannot take
a more lively step to escape ruin,
and obtain the smiles and protection of Heaven.
- Samuel Hopkins

God saw fit, for wise reasons to allow the people of
Israel thus to make and possess slaves;
but is this any license to us to enslave any of our fellow-men,
to kill any of our fellow-men whom we please and are able to destroy,
and take possession of their estates?
- Samuel Hopkins

 

If it be not a sin, an open, flagrant violation of
all the rules of justice and humanity,
to hold these slaves in bondage, it is indeed folly
to put ourselves to any trouble and expense in order to free them.
- Samuel Hopkins

These Scriptures, therefore, are infinitely far from
justifying the slavery under consideration;
for it cannot be made to appear that one in a thousand
of these slaves has done any thing to forfeit his own liberty.
- Samuel Hopkins

In a word, if any kind of slavery can be vindicated by the Holy Scriptures,
we are already sure our making and holding the Negroes our slaves,
as we do, cannot be vindicated by any thing we can find there,
but is condemned by the whole of divine revelation.

We all tend to measure our worth by what we DO -
the actions we take.

A bowl of soup served with love
is a greater gift than a steak dinner served brusquely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If a man loses pace with his companions,

However carefully we plan our future,

While it is important to our happiness

that we truly have no idea how our lives will turn out -
and that is good.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

However beautiful the strategy,

- Winston Churchill PHOTO

One who is injured ought not to return the injury,

It is better to do one's own duty,
however defective it may be,

He who does his duty as
his own nature reveals it, never sins.

Just because an animal is large, it doesn't mean he doesn't want kindness;

However many holy words you read, however many you speak,
what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?

Each of us holds a different image of God.
There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.
However much any of us may choose to argue,
or to fight and kill, for our point of view,
the nature of God is an unanswerable question.
Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you make a living, if you earn your own money,
you're free - however free one can be on this planet.
- Theodore White

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

the loss of youth, and everything that goes with it,
is quite a trauma.

- Brian De Palma

If every editor turns you down, maybe you should take
a second look at your text,

Man's unique reward, however, is that while animals
survive by adjusting themselves to their background,

However it is debased or misinterpreted,
love is a redemptive feature.
To focus on one individual so that their desires become
superior to yours is a very cleansing experience.
- Jeanette Winterson

Let us be of good cheer, however, remembering that
the misfortunes hardest to bear are those which never come.
