Christian Quotes: Henry Ward Beecher

Beecher,_Henry_Ward

“IT IS ONE OF THE SEVEREST TESTS OF FRIENDSHIP TO TELL YOUR FRIEND HIS FAULTS. SO TO LOVE A MAN THAT YOU CANNOT BEAR TO SEE A STAIN UPON HIM, AND TO SPEAK PAINFUL TRUTH THROUGH LOVING WORDS, THAT IS FRIENDSHIP. “

HENRY WARD BEECHER

 

“Better is open rebuke
    than hidden love.

Wounds from a friend can be trusted,
    but an enemy multiplies kisses.”

Proverbs 27:5-6
