• Never let us be guilty of sacrificing any portion of truth on the altar of peace.
  • But depend on it, bad company in this life is the sure way to procure worse company in the life to come.
  • The saddest road to hell is the one that runs under the pulpit, past the Bible, and through the middle of warnings and invitations.
  • Beware of letting small faults pass unnoticed under the idea it is a little one.
  • There are no little things in training children; all are important. Little weeds need plucking up as much as any. Leave them alone and they will soon be great.
  • There is a common, worldly kind of Christianity in this day, which many have, and think they have enough―a cheap Christianity which offends nobody, and requires no sacrifice―which costs nothing, and is worth nothing.
  • Men fall in private long before they fall in public.
