JOHN MASON
English divine and devotional writer
(1706 - 1763)

A house without family worship has neither foundation nor covering.
      - [Religion]

As every thread of gold is valuable, so is every minute of time.
      - [Time]

Christian graces are like perfumes; the more they are pressed, the sweeter they smell; like stars that shine brightest in the dark; like trees, the more they are shaken, the deeper root they take, and the more fruit they bear.
      - [Christianity]

Judge thyself with a judgment of sincerity, and thou wilt judge others with a judgment of charity.
      - [Judgment]

O credulity,
  Security's blind nurse, the dream of fools,
    The drunkard's ape, that feeling for his way
      Ev'n when he thinks, in his deluded sense
        To snatch at safety, falls without defence.
      - [Credulity]

Our conscience is a fire within us, and our sins as the fuel; instead of warming, it will scorch us, unless the fuel be removed, or the heat of it allayed by penitential tears.
      - [Conscience]

Time's gradual touch has mouldered into beauty many a tower, which when it frowned with all its battlements was only terrible.
      - [Antiquity]

'Tis ever thus
  With noble minds, if chance they slide to folly;
    Remorse stings deeper, and relentless conscience
      Pours more gall into the bitter cup
        Of their severe repentance.
      - [Conscience]

Uncursed ambition, unresisting sloth,
  And base dependence, are the fiends accurst.
      - [Ambition]
