Frederick Douglass Quote

Today's Google Doodle celebrates Frederick Douglass. Here is a quote attributed to him:

"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." 

"Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframe of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 6:5-9

"Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus..." Philippians 2:1-5, underline and italics mine 

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness." 2 Timothy  3:16

"His divine power has given us everything we need for a Godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness." 2 Peter 1:3
