Nathan Jones, new manager of Stoke City Football Club:
Through the hard times I’ve always had the stability of the Lord in my life, and my family background has kept me on the straight and narrow. I believe everything is God’s will.
Jeremy Hardy, comedian, 1961-2019:
I was raised in the Church of England. I can’t say I’m lapsed. You can’t really lapse if you’re an Anglican. You don’t lose your faith, you just can’t remember where you left it.
Letitia Wright, star of Black Panther, in her acceptance speech for the 2019 Rising Talent BAFTA award:
A few years ago I saw myself in a deep depression and I wanted to quit acting. The only thing that pulled me out of that was God, my belief, my family, and an email from BAFTA… which inspired me to keep going. I am still a work in progress. I want to encourage you, anyone that’s going through a hard time, God made you and you’re important. Just let your light shine. God bless you all.
John Paul, German novelist, 1763-1825:
Humanity is never so beautiful as when praying for forgiveness, or else forgiving another.
