If our zeal were true and genuine we should be much more angry with a sinner than a heretic.
      - Joseph Addison

There is nothing in which men more deceive themselves than in what they call zeal.

The zeal which begins with hypocrisy must conclude in treachery; at first it deceives, at last it betrays.

Never let your zeal outrun your charity. The former is but human, the latter is divine.

Zealous, not modest.
      - James Beattie, The Minstrel

Zealous, yet modest; innocent, though free;
  Patient of toil; serene amidst alarms;
    Inflexible in faith; invincible in arms.
      - James Beattie, The Minstrel
         (bk. I, st. 11)

But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.

A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil; but the fool rageth, and is confident.
      - Bible, Proverbs (ch. XIV, v. 16)

For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
      - Bible, Romans (ch. X, v. 2)

Through zeal knowledge is gotten, through lack of zeal knowledge is lost; let a man who knows this double path of gain and loss thus place himself that knowledge may grow.
      - Buddha (Gautama Buddha)

The frenzy of nations is the statesmanship of fate.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

There are zealots for slavery as well as zealots for freedom.
      - William Henry Burleigh

For zeal's a dreadful termagant,
  That teaches saints to tear and cant.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. III, canto II, l. 673)

Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to his work, body and soul.
      - Charles Buxton

I have never known a trader in philanthropy who was not wrong in his head or heart somewhere or other.

Motives by excess reverse their very nature and instead of exciting, stun and stupefy the mind.

It is a zealot's faith that blasts the shrines of the false god, but builds no temple to the true.
      - Sydney Thompson Dobell

Awake, my soul! stretch every nerve,
  And press with vigour on;
    A heavenly race demands thy zeal,
      And an immortal crown.

        Zeal and Vigour in the Christian Race

Nothing to build, and all things to destroy.
