JOHN OWEN (2)
English clergyman and theologian

Leanness of body and soul may go together.
      - [Fasting]

Selfishness is the making a man's self his own centre, the beginning and end of all he doeth.

Temptation is like a knife, that may either cut the meat or the throat of a man; it may be his food or his poison, his exercise or his destruction.

The house built on the sand may oftentimes be built higher, have more fair parapets and battlements, windows and ornaments, than that which is built upon the rock; yet all gifts and privileges equal not one grace.
      - [Grace]

      - [Faith]

To the sick man, the physician when he enters seems to have three faces, those of a man, a devil, and a god. When the physician first comes and announces the safety of the patient, then the sick man says: "Behold a God or a guardian angel."
  [Lat., Intrantis medici facies tres esse videntur
    Aegrotanti; hominis, Daemonis, atque Dei.
      Cum primum accessit medicus dixitque salutem,
        "En Deus aut custos angelus," aeger ait.]
      - Works (The Physician)
        [Doctors : Forgetfulness]

The vigor and power and comfort of our spiritual life depends on our mortification of deeds of the flesh.
      - Works (vol. VI, 9) [Sin]
