It is better to have a plain, substantial building, with no extravagance about it, but without a debt, than to have the most splendid specimen of Gothic architecture that is overlaid by a mortgage.
      - William Mackergo Taylor

So, from generation to generation, the spiritual church is rising upwards toward its perfection; and, though one after another the workmen pass away, the fabric remains, and the great Master-builder carries on the undertaking. Be it ours to build in our portion in a solid and substantial manner, so that they who come after us may be at once thankful for our thoroughness, and inspired by our example.
      - William Mackergo Taylor

The church is a sort of hospital for men's souls, and as full of quackery as the hospital for their bodies. Those who are taken into it live like pensioners in their Retreat or Sailors' Snug Harbor, where you may see a row of religious cripples sitting outside in sunny weather.
      - Henry David Thoreau

The itch of disputation will break out
  Into a scab of error.
      - Rowland Watkyns (Watkins),
        The New Illiterate Late Teachers

One family--we dwell in Him,
  One church above, beneath,
    Though now divided by the stream,
      The narrow stream of death.
      - Charles Wesley (1)

See the Gospel Church secure,
  And founded on a Rock!
    All her promises are sure;
      Her bulwarks who can shock?
        Count her every precious shrine;
          Tell, to after-ages tell,
            Fortified by power divine,
              The Church can never fail.
      - Charles Wesley (1), Scriptural
         (psalm XLVIII, st. 9)

The perfect world, by Adam trod,
  Was the first temple--built by God--
    His fiat laid the corner stone,
      And heaved its pillars, one by one.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis

Spires whose "silent finger points to heaven."
      - William Wordsworth

An itch of disputing will prove the scab of churches.
      - Sir Henry Wotton

The itch of disputing is the scab of the churches.
  [Lat., Disputandi pruritus ecclesiarum scabies.]
      - Sir Henry Wotton,
        A Panegyric to King Charles (inscribed on his tomb),
        see also Herbert's Jacula Prudentum
