    Prosperity quotes by:    

Make not a bosom friend of a melancholy soul: he'll be sure to aggravate thy adversity, and lessen thy prosperity. He goes always heavy loaded; and thou must bear half. He's never in a good humor; and may easily get into a bad one, and fall out with thee.

    Author: Thomas Fuller

Let him who expects one class of society to prosper in the highest degree, while the other is in distress, try whether one side of his face can smile while the other is pinched.

    Author: Thomas Fuller

None should expect to prosper who go out of way of duty.

    Author: James H. Aughey

But the soul renounced shall abide in the boundlessness of God's life. This is liberty, this is prosperity. The more we lose, the more we gain.

    Author: Watchman Nee

For a hundred that can bear adversity there is hardly one that can bear prosperity.

    Author: Thomas Carlyle

Few are made better by prosperity, whom afflictions make worse.

    Author: William Gurnall

There are great positives as well as refusals necessary for him who would find real prosperity. He must not only say no to the wrong, he must say yes to the right. He must not only avoid the seat of the scornful, but his delight must be in the law of the Lord.

    Author: Clovis G. Chappell

    Author: Horatius Bonar

Where do you stand in your relationship with the Lord? People often say, God is good to me, by which they mean that they have experienced good health or prosperity. What a person possesses is not always a safe measure of his dedication to the Lord.

    Author: Theodore Epp

People are usually better in adversity, than prosperity. A prosperous condition is not always so safe. True, it is more pleasing to the flesh - but it is not always best. In a prosperous state, there is more burden. Many look at the shining and glittering of prosperity - but not at the burdens of prosperity.

    Author: Thomas Watson
    Source: The Lord's Prayer.

I find that when the saints are under trial and well humbled, little sins raise great cries in the conscience; but in prosperity, conscience is a pope that gives dispensations and great latitude to our hearts. The cross is therefore as needful as the crown is glorious.

    Author: Samuel Rutherford

Watch lest prosperity destroy generosity.

    Author: Henry Ward Beecher
