Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Nothing is more destined to create deep-seated anxieties in people than the false assumption that life should be free from anxieties.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “A woman gets angry when a man denies his faults, because she knew them all along. His lying mocks her affection; it is the deceit that angers her more than the faults.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Imagine a large circle and in the center of it rays of light that spread out to the circumference. The light in the center is God; each of us is a ray. The closer the rays are to the center, the closer the rays are to one another. The closer we live to God, the closer we are bound to our neighbor; the farther we are from God, the farther we are from one another. The more each ray departs from its center, the weaker it becomes; and the closer it gets to the center, the stronger it becomes.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Life is like a cash register, in that every account, every thought, every deed, like every sale, is registered and recorded.”

Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Far better it is for you to say: “I am a sinner,” than to say: “I have no need of religion.” The empty can be filled, but the self-intoxicated have no room for God.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Each of us comes into life with fists closed, set for aggressiveness and acquisition. But when we abandon life our hands are open; there is nothing on earth that we need, nothing the soul can take with it.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “God has given different gifts for different people. There is no basis for feeling inferior to another who has a different gift. Once it is realised that we shall be judged by the gift we have received, rather than the gift we have not, one is completely delivered from a false sense of inferiority.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “There are no planes in the spiritual life; we are either going uphill or coming down.”

Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Education lays hold of what is best in a person, but character lays hold of what is worse. It takes hold of a failing and by very skillful manipulation and training turns it into a perfection.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Humility does not mean a submissiveness, a passiveness, a willingness to be walked on, or a desire to live in the doghouse. Humility is a virtue by which we recognize ourselves as we really are, not as we would like to be in the eyes of the public; not as our press notices say we are, but as we are in the sight of God when we examine our conscience.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Our generosity is measured not by what we give but by what we keep.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Let those who think that the Church pays too much attention to Mary give heed to the fact that Our Blessed Lord Himself gave ten times as much of His life to her as He gave to His Apostles.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Too many people get credit for being good, when they are only being passive.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “If we wish to have the light, we must keep the sun; if we wish to keep our forests we must keep our trees; if we wish to keep our perfumes, we must keep our flowers- and if we wish to keep our rights, then we must keep our God.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “The day that man forgets that love is identical with sacrifice, he will ask how a God of love could demand mortification and self-denial.”

Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Grace does not work like a penny in a slot machine. Grace will move you only when you want it to move you, and only when you let it move you. The supernatural order supposes the freedom of the natural order, but it does not destroy it.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “Penance does not require hair shirts today; our neighbors are hair shirts.”
Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “If you wish to convert anyone to the fullness of the knowledge of Our Lord and of His Mystical Body, then teach him the Rosary. One of two things will happen. Either he will stop saying the Rosary – or he will get the gift of faith.”

Fulton J. Sheen Quote: “No man hates God without first hating himself.”
