Famous Sterling W. Sill Quotes

Listed in: Inspirational Quotes

On Life:

In baseball we keep an accurate record of the hits, runs, and errors of each individual player. Life is also a great game, and in life the statistics are much more important than they are in a ball game. One of our human weaknesses in life is that when we are losing the game, we dont always like to keep track of the score. Certainly we are not very enthusiastic about putting the errors down on the paper, and most people dont even know what their individual batting average is.

But even the greatest worlds are not the most prized of God’s creations. The welfare of his children is far more important, and he has said that the greatest of all his gifts is the eternal life that he bestows upon us. We know that death is good. Certainly we would not dare to say that any procedure or design of God was superfluous or whimsical. On the contrary, there is a great deal of evidence, scriptural and otherwise that death is an inescapable necessity in God’s plan for human redemption.

On Success:

The way of success is not run with seven league boots but step by step, little by little, bit by bit…with no exceptions allowed.

On God:

Certainly the greatest values in the world are human values, and the most worthwhile ambitions in people have to do with building human beings. The most important responsibility that God has ever laid upon the shoulders of any human being is that of makin.
