Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.

Prayer is a powerful thing; for God has bound and tied himself thereunto.
      - [Prayer]

Prayer is a strong wall and fortress of the church; it is a goodly Christian's weapon, which no man knows or finds but only he who has the spirit of grace and of prayer.
      - [Prayer]

Put thou thy trust in God;
  In duty's path go on;
    Fix on His word thy steadfast eye;
      So shall thy work be done.

Riches are the pettiest and least worthy gifts which God can give man. What are they to God's word? Yea, to bodily gifts, such as beauty and health, or to the gifts of the mind, such as understanding, skill, wisdom? Yet men toil for them day and night and take no rest. Therefore our Lord God commonly gives riches to foolish people to whom He gives nothing else.

Riches, understanding, beauty, are fair gifts of God.
      - [Gifts]

Some plague the people with too long sermons; for the faculty of listening is a tender thing, and soon becomes weary and satiated.
      - [Preaching]

Superstition, idolatry, and hypocrisy have ample wages, but truth goes begging.
      - [Superstition]

Tell your master that if there were as many devils at Worms as tiles on its roofs, I would enter.
      - [Devil]

The believing man hath the Holy Ghost; and where the Holy Ghost dwelleth, He will not suffer a man to be idle, but stirreth him up to all exercises of piety and godliness, and of true religion, to the love of God, to the patient suffering of afflictions, to prayer, to thanksgiving, and the exercise of charity towards all men.
      - [Holy Spirit]

The church converteth the whole world by blood and prayer.
      - [Prayer]

The defects of a preacher are soon spied.
      - [Clergymen]

The Devil has a great advantage against us inasmuch as he has a strong bastion and bulwark against us in our own flesh and blood.
      - [Temptation]

The fewer words, the better prayer.
      - [Brevity]

The god of this world is riches, pleasure, and pride, wherewith it abuses all the creatures and gift's of God.
      - [Money]
