FRIEDRICH AUGUST THOLUCK
German theologian
(1799 - 1877)

He who has found upon earth the city of his affections, and who with every onward step is only advancing toward a mist, may well look upon New Year's day as a day of sorrow. Well may it be a dark and gloomy day to the man who, as a poor and humble pilgrim, is journeying to some royal city where he has not a single friend to welcome his arrival or offer him the shelter of a roof. A poor and humble pilgrim am I; but, God be thanked! I know of One who long ago prepared for me a place. Hence it is that as I pass the milestones each in succession becomes an altar, on which I present oblations of gratitude and praise. There are many, I am aware, to whom the thought of the flight of time is dispiriting. For me, I feel that He hath not given the spirit of fear, but of power.
      - [New Year's Day]

I have been young, but now am old. I have spent a whole lifetime in battling against infidelity with the weapons of apologetic science; but I have become ever more and more convinced that the way to the heart does not lie through the head; and that way to conversion of the head lies through a converted heart which already tastes the living fruits of the Gospel.
      - [Christianity]

The grave is a very small hillock, but we can see farther from it, when standing on it, than from the highest mountain in all the world.
      - [Graves]

The reason why we find so many dark places in the Bible is, for the most part, because there are so many dark places in our hearts.
      - [Bible]
