GEORGE DUFFIELD
American clergyman
(1818 - 1888)

Appropriate a due portion of your time to pastoral work, and cultivate such a personal acquaintance with every member of your charge--the lowliest and the youngest as well as the more prominent--that in their afflictions and temptations, which sooner or later come to all, they will feel that they have in you a sympathizing friend to whom they may tell the heart bitterness "with which a stranger intermeddleth not," assured of your interest, your friendly counsel and your prayers.

Ever remember you are an ambassador of Christ. You have received a commission from the King of kings to be his representative, and to minister in His name to your fellow-men.

Graves, the dashes in the punctuation of our lives. To the Christian they are but the place at which he gathers breath for a nobler sentence. To Christ, the grave was but the hyphen between man and God, for He was God-man.
      - [Graves]

Hate belongs with sin. If we do a wrong, we hate either the thing or God, or ourselves, or somebody else.
      - [Hate]

The age is intensely practical, and little influenced by formalism or cant or dead orthodoxy or the perfunctory performance of ministerial duty. It appreciates preaching that is direct, unaffected, solemn, sincere; that is adapted to the spiritual wants of men; that presents the profound yet precious truths of our holy religion not in the terminology of the schools, but in the language of familiar speech, and presents them with an earnestness due to a conviction of their vital importance, and an anxious solicitude for the salvation of those addressed.
      - [Installation Service]

The minister of Christ, and all who are associated with him, should make diligent use of all legitimate means to bring to the gospel feast those who are perishing through lack of the bread of life and the water of life.
      - [Installation Service]
