I've really been writing a lot of country songs. I used to get criticized for doing a 'Bump & Grind,' then turning around and doing a gospel song. But the truth is I'm glad I have a gift that allows me to switch lanes. ~ R. Kelly
Gospel Songs quotes by R. Kelly
Gospel music was the thing that inspired me as a child growing up on a cotton farm, where work was drudgery and it was so hard that when I was in the field I sang all the time. Usually gospel songs because they lifted me up above that black dirt. ~ Johnny Cash
Gospel Songs quotes by Johnny Cash
During childbirth and hospice I'll sing gospel songs that my grandma taught me when I was younger, or something I've made up, or I'll hum. I just play things that I think the audience will like. ~ Erykah Badu
Gospel Songs quotes by Erykah Badu
I had been stockpiling Gospel songs for other artists, and had planned to submit them to Gospel artists. ~ Smokey Robinson
Gospel Songs quotes by Smokey Robinson
Blues are the songs of despair, but gospel songs are the songs of hope. ~ Mahalia Jackson
Gospel Songs quotes by Mahalia Jackson
I would sit on the street corners in my hometown of Indianola, Mississippi, and I would play. And, generally, I would start playing gospel songs. ~ B.B. King
Gospel Songs quotes by B.B. King
Christianity has so much taken roots among us that drunkards sing gospel songs on their way home ~ Bangambiki Habyarimana
Gospel Songs quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
There's a little bit of gospel in everything I do. But I don't know if I will ever do a gospel album. There's a big universe out here, and I don't want to just sing to the church. I want to sing to the world and bring them a message of love. I love going to church and singing gospel songs, but right now there's a message that the world needs. ~ El DeBarge
Gospel Songs quotes by El DeBarge
Gospel songs to me are about the mansion in the sky, and washed in the blood of Christ's crimson blood, songs that are filled with biblical wording that's no longer understood by a lot of people. ~ Larry Norman
Gospel Songs quotes by Larry Norman
I find in my poetry and prose the rhythms and imagery of the best - I mean, when I'm at my best - of the good Southern black preachers. The lyricism of the spirituals and the directness of gospel songs and the mystery of blues are in my music or in my poetry and prose, or I missed everything. ~ Maya Angelou
Gospel Songs quotes by Maya Angelou
I think more people in the mainstream, folks like Nancy Wilson and Luther Vandross, they have openly expressed their love for God, and when mainstream artists start expressing their love for God openly in their concerts and including gospel songs in their concert, and, you know, people started embracing it. ~ Yolanda Adams
Gospel Songs quotes by Yolanda Adams
When you hear a good traditional gospel song it makes you wanna go buy a three piece suit ~ Pat Boone
Gospel Songs quotes by Pat Boone
The sea is rushing in now as unconsciousness does.I can see a chord, hear gospel songs as we hoist the sails.The sails are a soft white bird. We are airborne. We are primitive. ~ Suzy Davies
Gospel Songs quotes by Suzy Davies
Perhaps we were, all of us -pimps, whores, racketeers, church members, and children -bound together by the nature of our oppression, the specific and peculiar complex of risks we had to run; if so, within these limits we sometimes achieved with each other a freedom that was close to love. I remember, anyway, church suppers and outing, and later, after I left the church, rent and waistline parties where rage and sorrow sat in the darkness and did not stir, and we ate and drank and talked and laughed and danced and forgot all about "the man." We had the liquor, we had the chicken, the music, and each other, and had no need to pretend to be what we were not, This is the freedom that one hears in some gospel songs, for example, and in jazz. ~ James Baldwin
Gospel Songs quotes by James Baldwin
Music is fun, but I'm an ice skater. I may sing songs and do shows, make movies and other things ... that's all well and good and I enjoy it, and I would never trade any of those for anything. But figure skating is who I am. ~ Johnny Weir
Gospel Songs quotes by Johnny Weir
Keith Richards is a man without regret. When I ask him if - given the chance to do it all over again - he'd start taking heroin, he doesn't pause. Oh yes. Yes. There was a lot of experience in there - you meet a lot of weird people, different takes on life that you're not going to find if you don't go there. I loved a good high. And if you stay up, you get the songs that everyone else misses, because they're asleep. There's songs zooming around everywhere. There's songs zooming through here right now, in the air. ~ Caitlin Moran
Gospel Songs quotes by Caitlin Moran
Sometimes the best songs almost write themselves ~ Bill Anderson
Gospel Songs quotes by Bill Anderson
It is a wonderful morning with the sun shining bright and flowers smiling. There is a sweet breeze kissing my face while a hot cup of coffee warms my heart and awakens my mind. The primordial songs of ocean waves are soothing my soul. I am not on earth; I am in heaven on earth. ~ Debasish Mridha
Gospel Songs quotes by Debasish Mridha
John Wesley taught that the gospel of Christ involved more than saving souls. It should have an impact on all of society, and his followers worked to accomplish just that. They were dispensing grace to the broader world, and in the process their spirit helped change a nation, saving it from the revolutionary chaos that had spread across Europe. ~ Philip Yancey
Gospel Songs quotes by Philip Yancey
My career was really odd, because I literally had a greatest hits album out and nobody knew who I was. They knew the songs, but they didn't know me. ~ Kenny Chesney
Gospel Songs quotes by Kenny Chesney
Maybe I don't have the patience to make a virtue of necessity - the patience to carry something all the way through, and to actually say something. Lately, the songs are more jagged and they don't really lend themselves to that. I just take it one bit at a time. ~ Stephen Malkmus
Gospel Songs quotes by Stephen Malkmus
There are some who apparently feel that the fight for freedom is separate from the Gospel. They express it in several ways, but it generally boils down to this: Just live the gospel; there's no need to get involved in trying to save freedom and the Constitution or stop communism ... Should we counsel the people, 'Just live your religion - there's no need to get involved in the fight for freedom?' No we should not, because our stand for freedom is a most basic part of our religion. ~ Ezra Taft Benson
Gospel Songs quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
If anyone is going to see the gospel as true and good, satanic blindness and natural deadness must be overcome by the power of God. This is why the Bible says that even though the gospel foolishness to many, yet 'to those who are called ... Christ [is] the power of God and the wisdom of God' (1 Corinthians 1:24). The 'calling' is the merciful act of God to remove natural deadness and satanic blindness, so that we see Christ as true and good. The merciful act is itself a blood-bought gift of Christ. Look to him, and pray that God would enable you to see and embrace the gospel of Christ. ~ John Piper
Gospel Songs quotes by John Piper
When you love what you do, you just really fall in love with it. Sometimes you record a lot more songs than the album will even hold. You record like 300 songs and only 12 songs go on the album. It takes time. But if you love what you do, it works out. ~ Jacob Latimore
Gospel Songs quotes by Jacob Latimore
I'm always asked if the songs that I write are therapeutic, and my answer is a quick no. In fact, it could be argued that they exacerbate my neurosis. ~ Loudon Wainwright III
Gospel Songs quotes by Loudon Wainwright III
Even before I wrote any songs, I had this idea of a triangle where the voice was at the top, some sort of guitar element on one side, and then some sort of really basic rhythm on the other side. That's where I started from in the recording process. ~ Panda Bear
Gospel Songs quotes by Panda Bear
I'm always writing something. I've got so much stuff, I don't know what to do with it. Some of it will be Strokes, some of it will be I don't know what - stuff for pop singers. TV themes. I've got a jar stuffed with songs, all these ideas that are just me humming into a recording device. ~ Julian Casablancas
Gospel Songs quotes by Julian Casablancas
Just because it's in print doesn't mean it's the gospel. ~ Michael J. Jackson
Gospel Songs quotes by Michael J. Jackson
It's a gift that I have and I became good at it. When I heard my first song I didn't even know that I could write songs. ~ Rico Love
Gospel Songs quotes by Rico Love
Miracle centered gospels do more damage than good to the listeners and nation. ~ Sunday Adelaja
Gospel Songs quotes by Sunday Adelaja
Everybody has a line. It doesn't matter how you're dressed onstage or what you say in your songs, that doesn't give anybody the right to invade your personal space. ~ Lzzy Hale
Gospel Songs quotes by Lzzy Hale
Music just runs in my family. My dad and my uncles are a gospel quartet, Latimore Brothers. They've been doing their thing ever since I was a kid, so I just kind of grew up around that. ~ Jacob Latimore
Gospel Songs quotes by Jacob Latimore
I was washing dishes at Del Frisco's Grille and busing tables at a Tex-Mex place and writing songs the whole time. I did a lot of my writing at those jobs, thinking up melodies in my head. ~ Leon Bridges
Gospel Songs quotes by Leon Bridges
...All who ever died, live; they are reborn and have no end, nor will there ever be an end. All, save you. For you would not have death. You lost death, you lost life, in order to save yourself. Yourself! Your immortal self! What is it? Who are you?"
"I am myself. My body will not decay and die-"
"A living body suffers pain, Cob; a living body grows old; it dies. Death is the price we pay for our life and for all life."
"I do not pay it! I can die and in that moment live again! I cannot be killed; I am immortal. I alone am myself forever!"
"Who are you, then?"
"The Immortal One."
"Say your name."
"The King."
"Say my name. I told it to you but a minute since. Say my name!"
"You are not real. You have no name. Only I exist."
"You exist: without name, without form. You cannot see the light of day; you cannot see the dark. You sold the green earth and the sun and stars to save yourself. But you have no self. All that which you sold, that is yourself. You have given everything for nothing. And so now you seek to draw your world to you, all that light and life you lost, to fill up your nothingness. But it cannot be filled. Not all the songs of earth, not all the stars of heaven, could fill your emptiness. ~ Ursula K. Le Guin
Gospel Songs quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
At the end of the day, you release music because you believe in the songs and believe that they're honest. That's all you can really hope for. ~ Wade MacNeil
Gospel Songs quotes by Wade MacNeil
I love finding songs, going through them, tearing them apart, and seeing if I can find anything wrong with them. ~ Randy Travis
Gospel Songs quotes by Randy Travis
Our world is being shaken to its very foundations. Instead of offering great thoughts about God, the meaning of reality, and the gospel, there are evangelical churches that are offering only little therapeutic nostrums that are sweet but mostly worthless. One even wonders whether some current churchgoers might even be resistant were they to encounter a Christianity that is deep, costly, and demanding. ~ David F. Wells
Gospel Songs quotes by David F. Wells
People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands - literally thousands - of songs about broken hearts and rejection and pain and misery and loss. ~ Nick Hornby
Gospel Songs quotes by Nick Hornby
I've come to understand my role. On some level, I provide the context for them to shine. I also know my role is the steward of the songs, and the center point, the artist that the stuff all revolves around. But I really try to honor that. ~ Kathy Mattea
Gospel Songs quotes by Kathy Mattea
Antonio straightened like a shot, straddling me. He took my hands from my face and filled my vision. The eye of the storm: a place of peace and calm, and the most dangerous space to be in. The eye made you complacent and comfortable, and the next minute, while you were enjoying the cloudless sky, you'd be swept into a violent wind. ~ C.D. Reiss
Gospel Songs quotes by C.D. Reiss
I am really pleased to hear each of my songs described as a total surprise. This is what I want! ~ Erin McKeown
Gospel Songs quotes by Erin McKeown
Playing live is closer to theatre, although when you're up there on your own, it's quite scary and revealing because you're playing your own songs. It's like a one man show that you've written yourself. ~ Iwan Rheon
Gospel Songs quotes by Iwan Rheon
To marvel at the wonders of the gospel is a sign of faith. ~ Gerald Causse
Gospel Songs quotes by Gerald Causse
The people playing on these songs are from Wisconsin and Illinois and Chicago and St. Louis and there's a certain attitude that comes across in the songs and the way that they're performed. I'm born and raised in the Midwest, and my family's been here for generations. This is where I'm from and how I think, and that's reflected in the music I make. ~ Pokey LaFarge
Gospel Songs quotes by Pokey LaFarge
When I'm not in the booth, I'm one of the most laid-back guys. But growing up, I liked DMX, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, and T.I. - dudes that went all out on the track. My first songs were energetic because I liked their energy. ~ Meek Mill
Gospel Songs quotes by Meek Mill
Being a full-time feminist means that every day I make a choice to make equality a part of my life, mind, and behavior. I set out purposefully to support women, to create a dialogue with men, and to interject when I see ignorance and misunderstanding. For me this has meant that in my work I often choose to share my financial gains with women (although I do also employ men regularly, to film my music videos or produce my songs with my band Girlboy), and when I see a woman working, or reaching for her ambitions, I like to show my support. In my romantic relationships with men, this has meant when there is misunderstanding, I take the time to think about why that could be, and to discuss whatever problems we face. Thinking about the influence of the gender concept on our behavior and decisions is now ingrained in my subconscious. ~ Abigail Tarttelin
Gospel Songs quotes by Abigail Tarttelin
With Partition, in 1947, Roy writes, "God's carotid burst open on the new border between India and Pakistan and a million people died of hatred. Neighbours turned on each other as though they'd never known each other, never been to each other's weddings, never sung each other's songs." The consequences of that terrible event form the main story of "The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. ~ Arundhati Roy
Gospel Songs quotes by Arundhati Roy
Elder Maxwell on Wintry Doctrines
Elder Maxwell said that "if we are serious about our discipleship Jesus will eventually request each of us to do those very things which are most difficult for us to do."
This was what he came to call the wintry doctrine at the funeral of a young father in 1996 he put it this way "There are in the gospel warm and cuddly doctrines and then there are some that are just outright wintry doctrines… one of them frankly is that we cannot approach real consecration without passing through appropriate clinical experiences because we don't achieve consecration in the abstract. … sometimes therefore the best people have the worst experiences… because they are the most ready to learn." (Bruce C. Hafen, The Story of A Disciple's Life: Preparing the Biography of Neal A. Maxwell, p. 14) ~ Neal A. Maxwell
Gospel Songs quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
Celtic music is part of the language in Scotland and Ireland, where every kid and grandparent knows those songs, music by the likes of Woody Guthrie and Hank Snow is getting entrenched here. They are part of our cultural language. It's part of a living treasure. It doesn't just belong to a museum. ~ Rosanne Cash
Gospel Songs quotes by Rosanne Cash
I've never thought to notate my songs ... I tend to just have to remember them. ~ Scout Niblett
Gospel Songs quotes by Scout Niblett
Everyone has their definition of love. There have been countless songs sung about it. A gazillion books, articles, and poems written about it. There are experts on love who will tell you how to get it, keep it, and get over it. ~ Alison G. Bailey
Gospel Songs quotes by Alison G. Bailey
The apparatus has to serve our improbability and improvisation. Being good and playing the songs is not enough. ~ Flea
Gospel Songs quotes by Flea
I know of nothing that brings greater joy to the human heart than laboring at home or abroad for the salvation of the souls of men. I know of nothing which gives us a greater love of all that is good, than teaching this Gospel of Jesus Christ. ~ Heber J. Grant
Gospel Songs quotes by Heber J. Grant
The Church risks irrelevance when it makes central God's preference for the poor and not His universal favor toward the poor in spirit. ~ Gilbert Mylender
Gospel Songs quotes by Gilbert Mylender
Talk about songs that make me cry: Track 7 on the 'Phineas and Ferb' soundtrack, 'Summer (Where Do We Begin?).' When you get to the part about sitting with your brother underneath the shade of a big tree in the backyard, ohmygod. Turn on the waterworks. ~ Christopher Gorham
Gospel Songs quotes by Christopher Gorham
