W. Paul Young Quotes (55 Quotes)


  • All I want from you is to trust me with what little you can, and grow in loving people around you with the same love I share with you. It's not your job to change them, or to convince them. You are free to love without an agenda.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • And the Law that once contained impossible demands -- Thou Shalt Not... -- actually becomes a promise we fulfill in you.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Anger is the right response to something that is so wrong. But don't let the anger and pain and loss you feel prevent you from forgiving him and removing your hands from around his neck.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Authority, as you usually think of it, is merely the excuse the strong use to make others conform to what they want.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Being always transcends appearance-that which only seems to be. Once you begin to know the being behind the very pretty or very ugly face, as determined by your bias, the surface appearances fade away until they simply no longer matter.

  • Don't ever discount the wonder of your tears. They can be healing waters and a stream of joy. Sometimes they are the best words the heart can speak.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Don't forget that in the midst of all your pain and heartache, you are surrounded by beauty, the wonder of creation, art, your music and culture, the sounds of laughter and love, of whispered hopes and celebrations, of new life and transformation, of reconciliation and forgiveness.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Each relationship between two persons is absolutely unique. That is why you cannot love two people the same. It simply is not possible. You love each person differently because of who they are and the uniqueness that they draw out of you.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Forgiveness does not create a relationship. Unless people speak the truth about what they have done and change their mind and behavior, a relationship of trust is not possible. When you forgive someone you certainly release them from judgment, but without true change, no real relationship can be established.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Forgiveness in no way requires that you trust the one you forgive.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Forgiveness is first for you, the forgiver...to release you from something that will eat you alive; that will destroy your joy and your ability to love fully and openly. Do you think this man cares about the pain and torment you have gone through? If anything, he feeds on that knowledge. Don't you want to cut that off? And in doing so, you'll release him from a burden that he carries whether he knows it or not--acknowledges it or not.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • Forgiveness is not about forgetting, Mack. It is about letting go of another person's throat.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")

  • From the first day we hid the woman within the man, so that at the right time we could remove her from within him. We didn't create man to live alone; she was purposed from the beginning. By taking her out of him, he birthed her in a sense. We created a circle of relationship, like our own, but for humans. She, out of him, and now all the males, including me, birthed through her, and all originating, or birthed, from God.
    (W. Paul Young, "The Shack")
