The illumined record of celestial truth.
      - Hosea Ballou

We must not only read the Scriptures, but we must make their rules of life our own.
      - Hosea Ballou

Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said,
  The Spirit of the Lord spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.
      - Bible, II Samuel (ch. XXIII, v. 1-2)

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. CXIX, v. 105)

I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. CXIX, v. 99)

His studie was but litel on the Bible.
      - Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales
         (prologue, l. 4)

A glory gilds the sacred page,
  Majestic like the sun,
    It gives a light to every age,
      It gives, but borrows none.
      - William Cowper, Olney Hymns (no. 30)

One day at least in every week,
  The sects of every kind
    Their doctrines here are sure to seek,
      And just as sure to find.
      - Augustus de Morgan,
        in preface to "From Matter to Spirit"

Revealed religion first informed thy sight, and reason saw not till faith sprung to light.
      - John Dryden

And that the Scriptures, though not everywhere
  Free from corruption, or entire, or clear,
    Are uncorrupt, sufficient, clear, entire
      In all things which our needful faith require.
      - John Dryden, Religio Laici (l. 297)

Out from the heart of nature rolled
  The burdens of the Bible old.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Problem

The word unto the prophet spoken
  Was writ on tablets yet unbroken:
    The word by seers or sibyls told,
      In groves of oak or fanes of gold,
        Still floats upon the morning wind,
          Still whispers to the willing mind.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Problem

A stream where alike the elephant may swim, and the lamb may wade.
      - Gregory I, the Great (Saint Gregory)

It was a common saying among the Puritans, "Brown bread and the Gospel is good fare."
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry, Commentaries

Shallows where a lamb could wade and depths where an elephant would drown.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry, Of Solomon's Song

Bibles laid open, millions of surprises.
      - George Herbert, The Church--Sin

Starres are poore books, and oftentimes do misse;
  This book of starres lights to eternal blisse.
      - George Herbert,
        The Church--The Holy Scriptures (pt. II)

Cities fall, empires come to nothing, kingdoms fade away as smoke. Where is Numa, Minos, Lycurgus? Where are their books? and what has become of their laws? But that this book no tyrant should have been able to consume, no tradition to choke, no heretic maliciously to corrupt; that it should stand unto this day, amid the wreck of all that was human, without the alteration of one sentence so as to change the doctrine taught therein,--surely there is a very singular providence, claiming our attention in a most remarkable manner.
      - Bishop John Jewell (Jewel)

So we're all right, an' I, for one,
  Don't think our cause'll lose in vally
    By rammin' Scriptur' in our gun,
      An' gittin' Natur' for an ally.
      - James Russell Lowell, The Biglow Papers
         (second series, no. 7, st. 17)

We account the Scriptures of God to be the most sublime philosophy. I find more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history whatever.
      - Sir Isaac Newton

The history of every individual man should be a Bible.
      - Novalis (pseudonym of Frederich Leopold von Hardenberg),
        Christianity or Europe,
        (Carlyle's translation)

Most wondrous book! bright candle of the Lord!
  Star of Eternity! The only star
    By which the bark of man could navigate
      The sea of life, and gain the coast of bliss
      - Robert Pollok, Course of Time
         (bk. II, l. 270)

The majesty of the Scriptures strikes me with admiration, as the purity of the gospel has its influence on my heart.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

The truths of the Scriptures are so marked and inimitable, that the inventor would be more of a miraculous character than the hero.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Within that awful volume lies
  The mystery of mysteries!
    Happiest they of human race,
      To whom God has granted grace
        To read, to fear, to hope, to pray,
          To lift the latch, and force the way:
            And better had they ne'er been born,
              Who read to doubt, or read to scorn.
      - Sir Walter Scott, The Monastery
         (vol. 1, ch. XII)
