Great things are not accomplished by idle dreams, but by years of patient study.
      - [Deeds]

Happiness and comfort stream immediately from God himself, as light issues from the sun; and sometimes looks and darts itself into the meanest corners, while it forbears to visit the largest and the noblest rooms.
      - [Happiness]

Happiness without peace is temporal; peace along with happiness is eternal.
      - [Happiness]

He that has never known adversity but half acquainted with others or himself.
      - [Adversity]

He who bears failure with patience is as much of a philosopher as he who succeeds; for to put up with the world needs as much wisdom as to control it.
      - [Failure]

Holiness consists of three things--separation from sin, dedication to God, transformation into Christ's image. It is in vain that we talk about the last, unless we know something experimentally about the first.
      - [Holiness]

Hope is the last lingering light of the human heart. It shines when every other is put out. Extinguish it, and the gloom of affliction becomes the very blackness of darkness--cheerless and impenetrable.
      - [Hope]

I have seen many men and women of fashion die, and I never saw one of them die well. The trappings off, there they lay on the tumbled pillow, and there were just two things that bothered them, a wasted life and a coming eternity.
      - [Fashion]

In the Church of Christ one little worker can mar the whole by failing to fulfill his office. There is a place for each. Find your place if you are not already in it, and obey the Saviour's command, "Go work in my vineyard"--the command of a king which you disobey at the peril of losing the reward of the faithful.
      - [Churches]

It is a high, solemn, almost awful thought for every individual man, that his earthly influence, which has a commencement, will never, through all ages, have an end.
      - [Eternity]

It is not affliction itself, but affliction rightly borne, that does us good.
      - [Adversity]

It is one of the worst of errors to suppose that there is any other path of safety except that of duty.
      - [Duty]

It unfortunately happens that no man believes that he is likely to die soon. So every one is much disposed to defer the consideration of what ought to be done on the supposition of such an emergency; and while nothing is so uncertain as human life, so nothing is so certain as our assurance that we shall survive most of our neighbors.
      - [Death]

Jesus organized the church, which is His vineyard. He commands all to go into the vineyard and work. All who are united to Christ by faith, and are thus members of His mystical body, should be members of His visible church.
      - [Churches]

Let not the stream of your life be a murmuring stream.
      - [Dissatisfaction]

Lost time is never found again.
      - [Idleness]

Many men affect to despise fear, and in preaching resent any appeal to it; but not to fear when there is occasion is as great a weakness as to fear unduly without reason. God implanted fear in the soul as truly as He implanted hope or courage.
      - [Fear]

No books are so legible as the lives of men; no character so plain as their moral conduct.
      - [Conduct]

None should expect to prosper who go out of way of duty.
      - [Duty]

Nothing is eternal but that which is done for God and others. That which is done for self dies.
      - [Eternity]

On the head of Christ are many crowns. He wears the crown of victory; He wears the crown of sovereignty; He wears the crown of creation; He wears the crown of providence; He wears the crown of grace; He wears the crown of glory--for every one of His glorified people owes his honor, happiness and blessedness to Him.
      - [Christ]

One improper word or act will neutralize the effect of many good ones; and one base deed, after years of noble service, will cover them all with shame.
      - [Deeds]

Open your heart to sympathy, but close it against despondency. The flower which opens to receive the dew shuts against the rain.
      - [Despondency]

Our Christianity is a name, a shadow, unless, we resemble Him who, being the incarnate God, was incarnate goodness.
      - [Christianity]

Our religion is not Christianity so much as Christ. Our gospel is the knowledge, not of a system, but the saving knowledge of a personal Saviour.
      - [Christianity]
