George Fox (1624-1691)

“Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone; whereby in them you may be a blessing, and make the witness of God in them to bless you.”

“The Lord showed me, so that I did see clearly, that he did not dwell in these temples which men had commanded and set up, but in people’s hearts . . . his people were his temple, and he dwelt in them.”

“I heard a voice which said, `There is one, even Christ Jesus, that can speak to thy condition’, and when I heard it, my heart did leap for joy.”

“I saw also that there was an ocean of darkness and death, but an infinite ocean of light and love, which flowed over the ocean of darkness.”

“Why should any man have power over any other man’s faith, seeing Christ Himself is the author of it?”

“When the Lord sent me forth into the world, He forbade me to put off my hat to any, high or low.”

“I don’t think there has been an increase yet, but I’m sure there will be. I’m also sure there will be an increase in gas thefts from parked vehicles and things of that nature,”

“Justice Bennet of Derby, was the first that called us Quakers, because I bid them tremble at the word of the Lord. This was in the year 1650.”
