During his tenure as a religious leader, Christian evangelist Jerry Falwell was known for making controversial commentary. As a result, Falwell's inspirational messages were often overlooked.

Here are some of the uplifting quotes from Falwell's lifetime of sermon:

1. In an interview with PBS, Falwell spoke of God's inspiration. "God is love. And because God is love, he doesn't let me play in the middle of the interstate, so to speak. As a little child serving him and I do the wrong things, he smacks my hands – all of us. God gives parents for the purpose of showing love to children, by teaching them right things, right principles, what to do, what not to do."

2. Falwell often spoke of the commitment marriage requires and the importance of family. "Love is commitment; love is a relationship that never gives up."

3. "When you have a godly husband, a godly wife, children who respect their parents and who are loved by their parents, who provide for those children their physical and spiritual and material needs, lovingly, you have the ideal unit."

4. Determination and perseverance are within a person, said Falwell, because God made people that way. "Whenever God has a great task, God raises up a man of equal greatness for that task."

5. "You do not determine a man's greatness by his talent or wealth, as the world does, but rather by what it takes to discourage him."

6. Language is important in many aspects concluded Falwell. "Your words can enlighten a mind that is darkened."

7. "Your words can permanently influence a life."

8. Working hard will produce success. "I believe that America was built on integrity, on faith in God, and on hard work. I do not believe that anyone has ever been successful in life without being willing to add that last ingredient — diligence or hard work."
