Needle Quotations

I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus Christ

If you don't like what you're doing, you can always pick up your needle and move to another groove.
Timothy Leary

The greatest want of the world is the want of men - men who will not be bought or sold; men who in their inmost souls are true and honest; men who do not fear to call sin by its right name; men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole; men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.
Ellen G. White

Forgiveness is the needle that knows how to mend.

There is no logical reason why the camel of great art should pass through the needle of mob intelligence.
Rebecca West
