William Franklin "Billy" Graham, Jr. KBE (born November 7, 1918) is an American evangelical Christian evangelist. As of April 25, 2010, when he met with Barack Obama, Graham has spent personal time with twelve United States Presidents dating back to Harry S. Truman, and is number seven on Gallup's list of admired people for the 20th century. He is a Southern Baptist. He rose to celebrity status as his sermons were broadcast on radio and television.

It is said that Graham has preached the Gospel in person to more people than any other person in history. According to his staff, as of 1993 more than 2.5 million people have "stepped forward at his crusades to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior", many to the altar call song "Just As I Am". As of 2008, Graham's lifetime audience, including radio and television broadcasts, topped 2.2 billion.

Here’s a collection of some of the best quotes attributed to this great preacher of the Word:

Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.

God's angels often protect his servants from potential enemies.

Hot heads and cold hearts never solved anything.

Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children.

A keen sense of humor helps us to overlook the unbecoming, understand the unconventional, tolerated the unpleasant, overcome the unexpected, and outlast the unbearable.

God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with.

We are not cisterns made for hoarding, we are channels made for sharing.

A child who is allowed to be disrespectful to his parents will not have true respect for anyone.

The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes, and say, 'O God, forgive me,' or 'Help me.'

A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion - it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

We are the Bibles the world is reading; We are the creeds the world is needing; We are the sermons the world is heeding.

The men who followed Him were unique in their generation. They turned the world upside down because their hearts had been turned right side up. The world has never been the same.

Believers, look up - take courage. The angels are nearer than you think.

Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.

I think when a person has been found guilty of rape he should be castrated. That would stop him pretty quick.

You're born. You suffer. You die. Fortunately, there's a loophole.

I just want to lobby for God.

If we had more hell in the pulpit, we would have less hell in the pew.

The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.

Give me five minutes with a person's checkbook, and I will tell you where their heart is.

Suppose you could gain everything in the whole world, and lost your soul. Was it worth it?

There is nothing wrong with men possessing riches. The wrong comes when riches possess men.

Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness.

God will prepare everything for our perfect happiness in heaven, and if it takes my dog being there, I believe he'll be there.

My home is in Heaven. I'm just traveling through this world.

Only those who want everything done for them are bored.

Nothing can bring a real sense of security into the home except true love.

Tears shed for self are tears of weakness, but tears shed for others are a sign of strength.

If a person gets his attitude toward money straight, it will help straighten out almost every other area in his life.

Everybody has a little bit of Watergate in him.

It is not the body's posture, but the heart's attitude that counts when we pray.

Prayer is simply a two-way conversation between you and God.

The only time my prayers are never answered is on the golf course.

The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless.

I've read the last page of the Bible. It's all going to turn out all right.

God is more interested in your future and your relationships than you are.

The framers of our Constitution meant we were to have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.
The word 'romance,' according to the dictionary, means excitement, adventure, and something extremely real. Romance should last a lifetime.

God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, "I love you."

When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.

Read the Bible. Work hard and honestly. And don't complain.

The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service.
