The founder of Liberty University and the man who led the "Moral Majority" movement for decades knows a few things about success. Reverend Jerry Falwell worked his way up from a preacher in a tiny congregation to one of the most powerful forces in theology and politics until he passed away at age 73.

He mingled with United States presidents and started a university that has since become the largest in all of Virginia.

The man knows about success. Here are six memorable statements from the Christian evangelist about hard work and success:

1. "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." - Falwell said this in his 1980 book "Listen America."

2.
"I'm glad now, at age 66, that I never used alcohol or tobacco. I've buried a lot of friends who used tobacco or alcohol."

Falwell told PBS during a 2000 interview on Frontline that avoiding pitfalls like alcohol and tobacco have played a role in his personal success.

3. "I work 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week."

Falwell's quote about the time he puts into his work was reprinted in Death and Taxes Magazine.

4. "In the second place, you must excel in the work to which God called you."

Falwell wrote this in his book "Building Dynamic Faith," referencing his university's rise out of economic troubles.

People who have dynamic faith, however, face the same set of challenges and problems we all do, but they seem to go through the tough times in a straighter, more level line." - Falwell wrote this in his book "Achieving Your Dreams."

6. "These same young people have been reared under the influence of a government that has taught them socialism and welfarism. They have been taught to believe that the world owes them a living whether they work or not." - Falwell said this in his 1980 book, "Listen America.
