Temptation Quotes and Quotations


All men are tempted. There is no man that lives that can't be broken down, provided it is the right temptation, put in the right spot.
There are several good protections against temptation, but the surest is cowardice.
Temptation rarely comes in working hours. It is in their leisure time that men are made or marred.
Things forbidden have a secret charm.
After listening to thousands of pleas for pardon to offenders, I can hardly recall a case where I did not feel that I might have fallen as my fellow man had done, if I had been subjected to the same demoralizing influences and pressed by the same temptations.
I have a simple principle for the conduct of life - never to resist an adequate temptation.
If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I rise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savour) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself.
Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never - in nothing great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.
I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life.
Honest bread is very well - it's the butter that makes the temptation.
Get thee behind me, Satan.
Never resist temptation: prove all things: hold fast that which is good.
I can resist everything except temptation.


Quote of the Day
My words fly up, my thoughts remain below; Words without thoughts never to heaven go.
