Christian life consists of faith and charity.
The man who has the will to undergo all labor may win to any good.
The will is a beast of burden. If God mounts it, it wishes and goes as God wills; if Satan mounts it, it wishes and goes as Satan wills; Nor can it choose its rider… the riders contend for its possession.
Nothing good ever comes of violence.
I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.
Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.
Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace.
Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.
God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.
