Billy Sunday quotes :
After all is said that can be said upon the liquor traffic, its influence is degrading upon the individual, the family, politics and business, and upon everything that you touch in this old world.Billy Sunday
I challenge you to show me where the saloon has ever helped business, education, church, morals or anything we hold dear.Billy Sunday
I have been, and will go on, fighting that damnable, dirty, rotten business with all the power at my command.Billy Sunday
God Almighty never intended that the devil should triumph over the Church. He never intended that the saloons should walk rough-shod over Christianity.Billy Sunday
Hypocrites in the Church? Yes, and in the lodge and at the home. Don't hunt through the Church for a hypocrite. Go home and look in the mirror. Hypocrites? Yes. See that you make the number one less.Billy Sunday
