RALPH ERSKINE
Scottish clergyman and poet
(1685 - 1752)

Choose out the wisest, brightest, noblest of mankind, and how many of them could bear to be pursued into the little corners of their lives?
      - [Toleration]

I never knew a young man remarkable for heroic bravery whose very aspect was not lighted up by gentleness and humanity.
      - [Humanity]

Intellect alone, however exalted, without strong feelings--without even, irritable sensibility--would be only like an immense magazine of powder, if there were no such element as fire in the natural world. It is the heart which is the spring and fountain of all eloquence.
      - [Heart]

That which is called firmness in a king is called obstinacy in a donkey.
      - [Firmness]

When prejudices are caught up from bad passions, the worst of men feel intervals of remorse to soften and disperse them; but when they arise from a generous though mistaken source, they are hugged closer to the bosom, and the kindest and most compassionate natures feel a pleasure in fostering a blind and unjust resentment.
      - [Prejudice]

Faith is the nail which fastens the soul to Christ; and love is that grace that drives the nail to the head. Faith takes hold of Him, and love helps to keep the grip. Christ dwells in the heart by faith, and He burns in the heart by love, like fire melting the breast. Faith casts the knot, and love draws it fast.
      - Complete Works (vol. IV, p. 314)
        [Faith in Christ]
