Sermons are not like curious inquiries after new nothings, but pursuance of old truths.
      - Jeremy Taylor

With a little hoard of maxims preaching down a daughter's heart.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Locksley Hall
         (l. 94)

A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
      - James Thomson (1), Castle of Indolence
         (canto I, st. 69)

"Dear sinners all," the fool began, "man's life is but a jest,
  A dream, a shadow, bubble, air, a vapour at the best.
    In a thousand pounds of law I find not a single ounce of love,
      A blind man killed the parson's cow in shooting at the dove;
        The fool that eats till he is sick must fast till he is well,
          The wooer who can flatter most will bear away the belle"
            . . . .
              And then again the women screamed, and every staghound bayed;
                And why? because the motley fool so wise a sermon made.
      - George Walter Thornbury,
        The Jester's Sermon

The sermon edifies, the example destroys. (Practice what you preach)
  [Lat., Le sermon edifie, et l'example detruit.]
      - Abbe de Villiers,
        from a story in L'Art de Precher

Many a meandering discourse one hears, in which the preacher aims at nothing, and hits it.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

The minister's brain is often the "poor-box" of the church.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

Remember that God is as near to our mouth when we speak as that man is who leans his ear to our whispers.
      - Edward Young
