“By perseverance the snail reached the ark.”

“The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains, proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read. We are quite persuaded that the very best way for you to be spending your leisure time, is to be either reading or praying. You may get much instruction from books which afterwards you may use as a true weapon in your Lord and Master’s service.”

“God helps those who cannot help themselves.”

“All human books grow stale after a time-but with the Word of God the desire to study it increases, while the more you know of it the less you think you know. The Book grows upon you: as you dive into its depths you have a fuller perception of the infinity which remains to be explored. You are still sighing to enjoy more of that which it is your bliss to taste.”

“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.”

“One night spent in prayer ennobled Jacob. How few of us have ever tried to win a prince’s rank in this way. How much might we gain if we would wrestle for it. When Jacob overcame the angel he virtually disarmed Esau. He who has power with God will surely prevail with men.”

“A Jesus who never wept could never wipe away my tears.”

“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”

“Your emptiness is but the preparation for your being filled, and your casting down is but the making ready for your lifting up.”

“If I am not today all that I hope to be, yet I see Jesus, and that assures me that I shall one day be like Him. ”

“You will never glory in God till first of all God has killed your glorying in yourself.”

“Is there nothing to sing about to-day? Then borrow a song from tomorrow; sing of what is yet to be. Is this world dreary? Then think of the next.”

“There are no crown-wearers in heaven who were not cross-bearers here below.”

“Men of faith are yet men of common sense. We are to use our wits as well as our prayers. Grace does not make men stupid.”

“There is hardship in everything except eating pancakes.”

“Visit many good books, but live in the Bible.”

“Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter.”

“A sheep in the midst of wolves is safe compared with the Christian in the midst of ungodly men.”

“Prayer is the slender nerve that moves the muscle of omnipotence.”

“As sure as ever God puts His children in the furnace, He will be in the furnace with them.”

“It is certain that the Alp is high, but higher still is the love and grace of God.”

“If you will tell me when God permits a Christian to lay aside his armour, I will tell you when Satan has left off temptation. Like the old knights in war time, we must sleep with helmet and breastplate buckled on, for the arch-deceiver will seize our first unguarded hour to make us his prey. The Lord keep us watchful in all seasons, and give us a final escape from the jaw of the lion and the paw of the bear.”

“A Bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.”

“God’s thoughts of you are many, let not yours be few in return.”

“Let me ask you, how many atheists are now in this house? Perhaps not a single one of you would accept the title, and yet, if you live from Monday morning to Saturday night in the same way as you would live if there were no God, you are practical atheists.”

“I have a great need for Christ: I have a great Christ for my need.”
