CHRISTIAN SCRIVER
(USED PSEUDONYM GOTTHOLD)
German religious author
(1629 - 1693)

As this brook not only washes off impurities, but overwhelms them, so that they can no longer be found, even so Thy Divine mercy, and the stream of my Saviour's blood, not only purge away, but extinguish my sins, sweeping them into the depths of the sea, where through all eternity they shall be remembered no more.
      - [Christ (Saviour)]

God has given you your child, that the sight of him, from time to time, might remind you of His goodness, and induce you to praise Him with filial reverence.
      - [Children]

If he who has little wit needs a master to inform his stupidity, he who has much frequently needs ten to keep in check his worldly wisdom, which might otherwise, like a high-mettled charger, toss him to the ground.
      - [Wit]

It is self-love and its offspring self-deception, which shut the gates of heaven, and lead men, as if in a delicious dream, to hell.
      - [Selfishness]

My God! my time is in Thine hands. Should it please Thee to lengthen my life, and complete, as Thou hast begun, the work of blanching my locks, grant me grace to wear them as a crown of unsullied honor.
      - [Old Age]

My God, give me neither poverty nor riches; but whatsoever it may be Thy will to give, give me with it a heart which knows humbly to acquiesce is what is Thy will.
      - [Contentment]

My God, help me always resolutely to strive, and, through life and death, to force my way unto Thee.
      - [Earnestness]

Never have I greater reason for suspicion that when I am particularly pleased with myself, my faith, my progress, and my alms.
      - [Self-righteousness]

O my God! close my eyes, that I may see Thee; separate me from the world, that I may enjoy Thy company.
      - [Worldliness]

O, my God! withhold from me the wealth to which tears and sighs and curses cleave. Better none at all than wealth like that.
      - [Riches]

The whole of Christianity is comprised in three things--to believe, to love, and to obey Jesus. These are things, however, which we must be learning all our life.
      - [Christianity]
