Robert H. Schuller Quotes

Robert H. Schuller (1926–2015) was an American Christian televangelist and pastor, best known for founding the Crystal Cathedral in California. He gained fame through the “Hour of Power” television show, promoting a positive-thinking approach and self-help principles. Schuller authored popular books like “Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do!” emphasizing personal empowerment. The Crystal Cathedral, designed by Philip Johnson, served as his ministry’s headquarters. However, financial difficulties led to the church’s bankruptcy in 2013, and the property was later sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange. Despite challenges, Schuller’s impact on American Christianity and self-help philosophy remains notable, with a legacy centered on positivity and overcoming life’s obstacles.
