THOMAS SPRAT
English divine and miscellaneous writer
(1635 - 1713)

All false practices and affections of knowledge are more odious to God, and deserve to be so to men, than any want or defect of knowledge can be.
      - [Deceit]

Are we not to pity and supply the poor, though they have no relation to us? No relation? That cannot be. The Gospel styles them all our brethren.
      - [Alms]

Covetousness, by a greediness of getting more, deprives itself of the true end of getting; it loses the enjoyment of what it has got.
      - [Covetousness]

Do not too many believe no zeal to be spiritual but what is censorious or vindictive? Whereas no zeal is spiritual that is not also charitable.
      - [Zeal]

Forever all goodness will be most charming; forever all wickedness will be most odious.
      - [Goodness]

In all works of liberality something more is to be considered besides the occasion of the givers; and that is the occasion of the receivers.
      - [Charity]

It is always esteemed the greatest mischief a man can do to those whom he loves, to raise men's expectations of them too high by undue and impertinent commendations.
      - [Praise]

Passion is the great mover and spring of the soul. When men's passions are strongest, they may have great and noble effects; but they are then also apt to fall into the greatest miscarriages.
      - [Passion]

Whatever you dislike in another person take care to correct in yourself.
      - [Reform]
