Pain is the outcome of sin.
      - Buddha (Gautama Buddha)

I waive the quantum o' the sin,
  The hazard of concealing:
    But, och! it hardens a' within,
      And petrifies the feeling!
      - Robert Burns, Epistle to a Young Friend

God made sin possible just as he made all lying wonders possible, but he never made it a fact, never set anything in his plan to harmonize with it. Therefore it enters the world as a forbidden fact against everything that God has ordained.
      - Horace Bushnell

Nature has no promise for society, least of all, any remedy for sin.
      - Horace Bushnell

Drudgery and knowledge are of a kin,
  And both descended from one parent sin.
      - Samuel Butler (1)

Compound for sins they are inclin'd to,
  By damning those they have no mind to.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. I, canto !, l. 215)

Angels for the good man's sin wept to record, and blushed to give it in.
      - Thomas Campbell

But, said as angels for the good man's sin,
  Weep to record, and blush to give it in.
      - Thomas Campbell, Pleasures of Hope
         (pt. II, l. 357)

The deadliest sin were the consciousness of no sin.
      - Thomas Carlyle

The sin that now rises to memory as your bosom sin, let this first of all be withstood and mastered. Oppose it instantly by a detestation of it, by a firm will to conquer it, by reflection, by reason, and by prayer.
      - William Ellery Channing

A man cannot practise sin and be a good citizen. Burke says very truly: "Whatever disunites man from God disunites man from man."
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

O the dangerous siege
  Sin lays about us! And the tyranny
    He exercises when he hath expung'd,
      Like to the horror of a winter's thunder,
        Mix'd with a gushing storm; that suffers nothing
          To stir abroad on earth, but their own rages,
            Is sin, when it hath gather'd head above us:
              No roof, no shelter can secure us so,
                But he will drown our cheeks in fear or woe.
      - George Chapman

Sin is ashamed of sin.
      - George Chapman

Think not for wrongs like these unscourged to live;
  Long may ye sin, and long may Heaven forgive;
    But when ye least expect, in sorrow's day,
      Vengeance shall fall more heavy for delay.
      - Charles Churchill

If we did not first take great pains to corrupt our nature, our nature would never corrupt us.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

I have learned what a sin is against an infinite imperishable being, such as is the soul of man.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Sin is free, or you cannot make sin out of it.
      - Joseph Cook

Sin let loose speaks punishment at hand.
      - William Cowper, Expostulation (l. 160)

Fears of sinning let in thoughts of sin.
      - George Crabbe

Come, now again, thy woes impart,
  Tell all thy sorrows, all thy sin;
    We cannot heal the throbbing heart
      Will we discern the wounds within.
      - George Crabbe, Hell of Justice (pt. II)

Besides the guilt of sin and the power of sin, there is the stain of sin.
      - Nathaniel Culverwell

O sin, what hast thou done to this fair earth!
      - Richard Henry Dana, Sr.

Sin hath broke the world's sweet peace--unstrung
  Th' harmonious chords to which the angels sung.
      - Richard Henry Dana, Sr.

There are sins of omission as well as those of commission.
      - Dorothee DeLuzy

Sin with the multitude, and your responsibility and guilt are as great and as truly personal, as if you alone had done the wrong.
      - Tryon Edwards
