It requires as much reflection and wisdom to know what is not to be put into a sermon as what is.
      - [Preaching]

Power rests in tranquillity.
      - [Repose]

The heart must be divorced from its idols. Age does a great deal in curing the man of his frenzy; but if God has a special work for a man, he takes a shorter and sharper course with him.

      - [Discipline]

The nurse of infidelity is sensuality.
      - [Infidelity]

The world looks at ministers out of the pulpit to know what they mean when in it.
      - [Preaching]

To have too much forethought is the part of a wretch; to have too little is the part of a fool.
      - [Forethought]

We erect the idol self, and not only wish others to worship, but worship ourselves.
      - [Selfishness]

When two goats met on a bridge which was too narrow to allow either to pass or return, the goat which lay down that the other might walk over it was a finer gentleman than Lord Chesterfield.
      - [Politeness]
