Temptation Quotations

Darkness comes. In the middle of it, the future looks blank. The temptation to quit is huge. Don't. You are in good company... You will argue with yourself that there is no way forward. But with God, nothing is impossible. He has more ropes and ladders and tunnels out of pits than you can conceive. Wait. Pray without ceasing. Hope.
John Piper

Temptation is like a knife, that may either cut the meat or the throat of a man; it may be his food or his poison, his exercise or his destruction.
John Owen

Knowledge of God's Word is a bulwark against deception, temptation, accusation, even persecution.
Edwin Louis Cole

Temptation is the devil looking through the keyhole. Yielding is opening the door and inviting him in.
Billy Sunday

The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it... I can resist everything but temptation.
Oscar Wilde
