RALPH VENNING
English preacher and writer
(1621? - 1674)

As a Christian should do no injuries to others, so he should forgive the injuries that others do to him. It is to be like God, who is a good-giving God, and a sin-forgiving God.
      - [Injury]

I have read of a glass kept in an idol temple in Smyrna that would make beautiful things appear deformed, and deformed things appear beautiful; carnal sense is such a glass to wicked men, it makes heavenly things which are beautiful to appear deformed, and earthly things which are deformed to appear beautiful.
      - [Sensuality]

Late repentance is seldom true, but true repentance is never too late.
      - [Repentance]

Success at first doth many times undo men at last.
      - [Success]

The Hebrews have a saying that God is more delighted in adverbs than in nouns; it is not so much the matter that is done, but the matter how it is done, that God minds. Not how much, but how well! It is the well-doing that meets with a well-done. Let us therefore serve God, not nominally or verbally, but adverbially.
      - [Well-doing]

To maintain an opinion because it is thine, and not because it is true, is to prefer thyself above the truth.
      - [Opinion]

Virtue and vice are both prophets; the first, of certain good; the second, of pain or else of penitence.
      - [Virtue]

Worldly riches are like nuts; many clothes are torn in getting them, many a tooth broke in cracking them, but never a belly filled with eating them.
      - [Riches]

They spare the rod, and spoyle the child.
      - Mysteries and Revelations (p. 5), (1649)
        [Punishment]

All the beauty of the world, 'tis but skin deep.
      - Orthodoxe Paradoxes--The Triumph of Assurance
         (p. 41) [Beauty]
