A cheerful spirit is one of the most valuable gifts ever bestowed upon humanity by a kind Creator. It is the sweetest and most fragrant flower of the Spirit, that constantly sends out its beauty and fragrance, and blesses everything within its reach. It will sustain the soul in the darkest and most dreary places of this world. It will hold in check the demons of despair, and stifle the power of discouragement and hopelessness. It is the brightest star that ever cast its radiance over the darkened soul, and one that seldom sets in the gloom of morbid fancies and forboding imaginations.
      - [Cheerfulness]

A firm faith is the best theology; a good life is the best philosophy; a clear conscience the best law; honesty, the best policy, and temperance the best physic.
      - [Faith]

A hope unaccompanied with a godly life had better be given up, and the sooner the better; for, if retained, it will prove as a spider's web when God shall take away the soul.
      - [Hope]

A little thing will keep them from the house of God who have no desire to go to it.
      - [Churches]

Afflictions are but conductors to immortal life and glory.
      - [Adversity]

All Christian power springs from communion with God and from the indwelling of divine grace.
      - [Communion]

All our murmurings are so many arrows shot at God Himself, and they will return upon our own hearts; they reach not Him, but they will hit us;
  they hurt not Him, but they will wound us; therefore it is better to be mute than to murmur; it is dangerous to provoke a consuming fire.
      - [Complaining]

As a weak limb grows stronger by exercise, so will your faith be strengthened by the very efforts you make in stretching it out toward things unseen.
      - [Faith]

As every mercy is a drop obtained from the ocean of God's goodness, so every affliction is a drachm weighed out in the wisdom of God's providence.
      - [Adversity]

Be deaf to the quarrelsome, blind to the scorner and dumb to the inquisitive.
      - [Evil]

Cheerfulness is the friend and helper of all good graces, and the absence of it is certainly a vice.
      - [Cheerfulness]

Cheerfulness sharpens the edge and removes the rust from the mind. A joyous heart supplies oil to our inward machinery, and makes the whole of our powers work with ease and efficiency; hence it is of the utmost importance that we maintain a contented, cheerful, genial disposition.
      - [Cheerfulness]

Christ is the Good Physician. There is no disease He cannot heal; no sin He cannot remove; no trouble He cannot help. He is the Balm of Gilead, the Great Physician who has never yet failed to heal all the spiritual maladies of every soul that has come unto Him in faith and prayer.
      - [Christ]

Conscience is the voice of God in the soul.
      - [Conscience]

Death to the Christian is the funeral of all his sorrows and evils, and the resurrection, of all his joys.
      - [Death]

Debt is the secret foe of thrift, as vice and idleness are its open enemies.
      - [Debt]

Difficulty excites the mind to the dignity which sustains and finally conquers misfortunes, and the ordeal refines while it chastens.
      - [Difficulties]

Do daily and hourly your duty; do it patiently and thoroughly. Do it as it presents itself; do it at the moment, and let it be its own reward. Never mind whether it is known and acknowledged or not, but do not fail to do it.
      - [Duty]

Faith without evidence is, properly, not faith, but prejudice or presumption; faith beyond evidence is superstition, and faith contrary to evidence is either insanity or willful perversity of mind.
      - [Faith]

Five, or six, ten people shall be made temporarily wretched because one person, unconsciously perhaps, yet supremely, egotistic and selfish, has never learned to control his disposition and bridle his tongue.
      - [Egotism]

God brings men into deep waters not to drown them, but to cleanse them.
      - [Adversity]

God makes crosses of great variety; He makes some of iron and lead, that look as if they must crush; some of straw, that seem so light, and yet are no less difficult to carry; some He makes of precious stones and gold, that dazzle the eye and excite the envy of spectators, but in reality are as well able to crucify as those which are so much dreaded.
      - [Cross]

God strikes not as an enemy, to destroy; but as a father, to correct.
      - [Adversity]

God's corrections are our instructions; His lashes our lessons, and His scourges our schoolmasters.
      - [Adversity]

Good conscience is sometimes sold for money, but never bought with it.
      - [Conscience]
