I want to help you to grow as beautiful as God meant you to be when he thought of you first.
      - The Marquis of Lossie (ch. XXII) [Help]

The whole trouble is that we won't let God help us.
      - The Marquis of Lossie (ch. XXVII)
        [Independence]

You've got to save your own soul first, and then the souls of your neighbors if they will let you; and for that reason you must cultivate, not a spirit of criticism, but the talents that attract people to the hearing of the Word.
      - The Marquis of Lossie (ch. XXVII)
        [Influence]

God never gave man a thing to do concerning which it were irreverent to ponder how the Son of God would have done it.
      - The Marquis of Lossie (vol. II, ch. XVII)
        [Christ]

Bountiful Primroses,
  With outspread heart that needs the rough leaves' care.
      - Wild Flowers [Primroses]

Hang-head Bluebell,
  Bending like Moses' sister over Moses,
    Full of a secret that thou dar'st not tell!
      - Wild Flowers [Bluebells]

Anemone, so well
  Named of the wind, to which thou art all free.
      - Wild Flowers (l. 9) [Anemones]

Better to have the poet's heart than brain,
  Feeling than song.
      - With and Without (pt. III, sc. 9, l. 30)
        [Heart]

A voice in the wind I do not know;
  A meaning on the face of the high hills
    Whose utterance I cannot comprehend.
      A something is behind them: that is God.
      - Within and Without (pt. I, sc. 1) [God]

And so all growth that is not towards God
  Is growing to decay.
      - Within and Without (pt. I, sc. 3) [Growth]

Beauty and sadness always go together.
  Nature thought beauty too rich to go forth.
    Upon the earth without a meet alloy.
      - Within and Without (pt. IV, sc. 3)
        [Beauty]
