Women and God are the two rocks on which a man must either anchor or be wrecked.
Men... are bettered and improved by trial, and refined out of broken hopes and blighted expectations.
Love is not a union merely between two creatures, it is a union between two spirits.
It is not the number of books you read, nor the variety of sermons you hear, nor the amount of religious conversation in which you mix, but it is the frequency and earnestness with which you meditate on these things until the truth in them becomes yo.
Kindly words, sympathizing attentions, watchfulness against wounding men's sensitiveness — these cost very little, but they are priceless in their value.
In God's world, for those who are in earnest, there is no failure. No work truly done, no word earnestly spoken, no sacrifice freely made, was ever made in vain.
Only so far as a man believes strongly, mightily, can he act cheerfully, or do anything that is worth doing.
