Christmas Quotes

    The universal joy of Christmas is certainly wonderful. We ring the bells when princes are born, or toll a mournful dirge when great men pass away. Nations have their red-letter days, their carnivals and festivals, but once a year and only once, the whole world stands still to celebrate the advent of a life. Only Jesus of Nazareth claims this worldwide, undying remembrance. You cannot cut Christmas out of the calendar, nor out of the heart of the world.

    I do come home at Christmas. We all do, or we all should. We all come home, or ought to come home, for a short holiday - the longer, the better - from the great boarding school where we are forever working at our arithmetical slates, to take, and give a rest.
    - Charles Dickens

    Time was with most of us, when Christmas Day, encircling all our limited world like a magic ring, left nothing out for us to miss or seek; bound together all our home enjoyments, affections, and hopes; grouped everything and everyone round the Chrismtas fire, and make the little picture shining in our bright young eyes, complete.
    - Charles Dickens

    With every recurring Christmas morning the prospects of the world's peace grow brighter, and the practice of universal brotherhood comes a little nearer to the door.

    It is Christmas in the mansion,
    Yule-log fires and silken frocks;
    It is Christmas in the cottage,
    Mother's filling little socks.
    It is Christmas on the highway,
    In the thronging, busy mart;
    But the deares, trues Christmas
    Is the Christmas in the heart.

    It comes every year and will go on forever. And along with Christmas belong the keepsakes and the customs. Those humble, everyday things a mother clings to, and ponders, like Mary in the secret spaces of her heart.
    - Marjorie Holmes

    Symbolizing eternal hope,
    the wreath goes 'round and 'round,
    And where it starts or ends cannot be found.
    Woven of things that grow - for life,
    and hung for holiday delight
    The wreath must be left in place
    From Advent through Twelfth Night.

    Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wideopen heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.
    - George Mathhew Adams

    God grant you the light in Christmas which is faith;
    the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
    the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
    the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
    the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
    the all of Christmas, which is Christ.
    - Wilda English

    I am not alone at all, I thought. I was never alone at all. And that, of course, is the message of Christmas. We are never aone. Not when the night is darkest, the wind coldest, the word seemingly most indifferent. For this is still the time God chooses.
    - Taylor Caldwell

    Christmas began in the heart of God. It is complete only when it reaches the heart of man.
    - Anonymous

    The magi, as you know, were wise men - wonderfuly wise men who brought gifts to the Babe in the manger. They invented the art of giving Christmas presents.
    - O. Henry

    Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world - stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death - and that the blessed life which began in Bethlehem nineteen hundred years ago is the image and brightness of the Eternal Love? Then you can keep Christmas.
    - Henry Van Dyke

    I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
    - Ebenezer Scrooge

    The rooms were very still while the pages were sfotly turned and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting.
    - Louisa May Alcott

    Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart... filled it, too, with a melody that would last forever.
    - Bess Streeter Aldrich

    There's more, much more, to Christmas
    Than candlelight and cheer;
    It's the spirit of sweet friendship
    That brightens all year.
    It's thoughtfulness and kindness,
    It's hope reborn again,
    For peace, for understanding,
    And for goodwill to men!

    The wonderful world of Christmas
    is ajoy from the moment it starts.
    The wonderful world of Christmas
    should remain ev'ry day in our hearts.
    - Charles Tobias and Al Frisch
