Best 25 Quotes by Rick Warren

“God sometimes removes a person from your life for your protection. Don't run after them.”

Rick Warren

“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”

Rick Warren

“The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel determines the way you act.”
