JOHN MCCLELLAN HOLMES
American clergyman
(1834 - 1911)

All true development tends ever to God. Its objective aim is the restoration by the second Adam of the Divine image forfeited by the first; and, incidentally, it transmutes grief into gladness and sighs into songs. But it is always a development in Christ, since it is only "in the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God" that any of our race can come "unto a perfect man."
      - [Evolution]

Christ's gospel could never have been delivered by one who was diseased.
      - [Health]

In the whole range of human vision nothing is more attractive than to see a young man full of promise and of hope, bending all his energies in the direction of truth and duty and God, his soul pervaded with the loftiest enthusiasm, and his life consecrated to the noblest ends. To be such a young man is to rival the noblest and best of men in heroic valor and Christian chivalry. Nay, to be such a young man is to be like Christ, the highest type, the most illustrious example of enthusiasm the world has ever seen.
      - [Enthusiasm]

Let us not undervalue the dignity of human nature. Man although fallen, still retains some traces of his primeval glory and excellence--broken columns of a celestial temple, magnificent, even in its ruins.
      - [Man]

The tree of human history, as it has grown from age to age, has been but the unfolding of a single germ--but the development of Christ and Him crucified.
      - [Evolution]

True heroism is alike positive and progressive. It sees in right the duty which should dominate, and in truth the principle which should prevail. And hence it never falters in the faith that always and everywhere sin must be repressed, and righteousness exalted.
      - [Heroism]

Vital is the relation between earthly sorrow and eternal satisfaction. The travail to which God's saints are subjected results in the birth of nobler natures and more sanctified spirits. Pain always promotes progress, and suffering invariably ensures success.
      - [Sorrow]
