    Self-denial quotes by:    

I bless God for this retirement: I never was more thankful for any thing than I have been of late for the necessity I am under of self-denial in many respects.

    Author: David Brainerd

Self-denial is the test and definition of self-government.

    Author: G.K. Chesterton

Do you have a hunger for God? If we don't feel strong desires for the manifestation of the glory of God, it is not because we have drunk deeply and are satisfied. It is because we have nibbled so long at the table of the world. Our soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great. If we are full of what the world offers, then perhaps a fast might express, or even increase, our soul's appetite for God. Between the dangers of self-denial and self-indulgence is the path of pleasant pain called fasting.

    Author: John Piper

One secret act of self-denial, one sacrifice of inclination to duty, is worth all the mere good thoughts, warm feelings, passionate prayers in which idle people indulge themselves.

    Author: John Henry Newman

The first lesson in Christ's school is self-denial.

    Author: Matthew Henry

I take the love of God and self-denial to be the sum of all saving grace and religion.

    Author: Richard Baxter

Naturally, men are prone to spin themselves a web of opinions out of their own brain, and to have a religion that may be called their own. They are far readier to make themselves a faith, than to receive that which God hath formed to their hands; are far readier to receive a doctrine that tends to their carnal commodity, or honor, or delight, than one that tends to self-denial.

    Author: Richard Baxter

Truth with self-denial is a better pennyworth, than error with all its flesh-pleasing.

    Author: William Gurnall

If our life is not a course of humility, self-denial, renunciation of the world, poverty of spirit, and heavenly affection, we do not live the lives of Christians.

    Author: William Law

If we do not die to ourselves, we cannot live to God, and he that does not live to God, is dead.

    Author: George Macdonald

Holiness is an unselfing of ourselves.

    Author: Frederick W. Faber

Those who determine not to put self to death will never see the will of God fulfilled in their lives. Those who ought to become the light of the world must necessarily burn and become less and less. By dening self, we are able to win others.
