Famous quotes containing the words fellowship and/or christian:

    Good fellowship and friendship are lasting, rational and manly pleasures.
    William Wycherley (1640–1716)

    All great amusements are dangerous to the Christian life; but among all those which the world has invented there is none more to be feared than the theater. It is a representation of the passions so natural and so delicate that it excites them and gives birth to them in our hearts, and, above all, to that of love.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
