Christmas Quotes

Great Christmas quotes to add to your handmade Christmas cards. I love collecting quotations from famous people and have compiled a whole book on all kinds of quotations.

So I thought that you might like to add some of these Christmas quotes to your homemade Christmas cards. I usually print Christmas quotes or card verses out on cardstocks, trim around them and layer them onto card blank front. Add a punch flower or two or some other embellishments and my cards are done.

Christmas Quotes

Health, Peace, and sweet content be yours.

~ Shakespeare


Bless us Lord, this Christmas, with quietness of mind;
Teach us to be patient and always to be kind.

Peace on earth will come to stay,
When we live Christmas every day.

Whatever else be lost among the years,
Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing:
Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears,
Let us hold close one day, remembering
Its poignant meaning for the hearts of men.
Let us get back our childlike faith again.

~ Grace Noll Crowell


Christmas!
The very word brings joy to our hearts.
No matter how we may dread the rush,
the long Christmas lists
for gifts and cards to be bought and given--
when Christmas Day comes
there is still the same warm feeling we had as children,
the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.

~ Joan Winmill Brown


Christmas Eve was a night of song
that wrapped itself about you like a shawl.
But it warmed more than your body.
It warmed your heart...
filled it, too, with a melody
that would last forever.

~ Bess Streeter Aldrich


And the angel said unto them,
"Fear not!
For, behold, I bring you
tidings of great joy,
Which shall be to all people.
"For unto you is born
this day in the city of David
A Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you:
Ye shall find the babe
wrapped in swaddling clothes,
Lying in a manger.

~ St. Luke 2:10-12


From home to home,
and heart to heart,
from one place to another.
The warmth and joy of Christmas,
brings us closer to each other.

~ Emily Matthews


Heap on the wood! - the wind is chill;
But let it whistle as it will,
We'll keep our Christmas merry still.

~ Sir Walter Scott


Christmas is not a time nor a season,
but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and goodwill,
to be plenteous in mercy,
is to have the real spirit of Christmas.

~Calvin Coolidge



More Christmas Quotes

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away;
While quite unselfish, it grows small.

~ Eva K. Logue


Christmas is the season
for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall,
the genial flame of charity in the heart.

~ Washington Irving


And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby,
keeping watch of their flocks at night.
An angel of the Lord appeared to them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were terrified.
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid.
I bring you good news of great joy that will for all the people.
Today in the town of David
a Savior has been born to you;
he is Christ the Lord.

~ Luke 2:8-11


What is Christmas?
It is tenderness for the past,
courage for the present,
hope for the future.
It is a fervent wish
that every cup may overflow
with blessings rich and eternal,
and that every path
may lead to peace.

~ Agnes M. Pharo

It's hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding,
And for goodwill to men!"

More Christmas Quotes

Christmas is not in tinsel and lights and outward show.
The secret lies in an inner glow.
It's lighting a fire inside the heart.

It's higher thought and a greater plan.
It's glorious dream in the soul of man.

~ Wilfred A. Peterson

Without a thought of greed,
That it might live forevermore to fill our every need,
That it shall not be just a day,
But last a lifetime through,
The miracle of Christmastime that brings God close to you.

"A merry Christmas to everybody! A happy New Year to all the world!"

~ Charles Dickens


Somehow not only for Christmas
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing returns to make you glad.

~ John Greenleaf Whittier


A song was heard at Christmas
To wake the midnight sky:
A saviour's birth, and peace on earth,
And praise to God on high.
The angels sang at Christmas
With all the hosts above,
And still we sing the newborn King
His glory and his love.

~ Timothy Dudley-Smith


This is Christmas: not the tinsel,
not the giving and receiving,
not even the carols,
but the humble heart
that receives anew the wondrous gift,
the Christ.

~ Frank McKibben



More Christmas Quotes

When Christmas bells are swinging
above the fields of snow,
We hear sweet voices ringing
from lands of long ago,
And etched on vacant places
Are half-forgotten faces
Of friends we used to cherish,
and loves we used to know.

~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox


He who has no Christmas in his heart
will never find Christmas under a tree.

Glad tidings to the earth they sing:
To us this day a child is given,
To crown us with the joy of heaven.
