In me lived a sin
So strange, of such a kind, that all of pure,
Noble, and knightly, in me twined and clung
Round that one sin, until the wholesome flower
And poisonous grew together, each as each,
Not to be plucked asunder.
Alfred Tennyson


AND when we are to execute the fierce anger of the Lord upon our sins, yet we are kind- hearted, and spare the Agag, the reigning sin, the splendid temptation; we have some kindnesses left towards it.
Jeremy Taylor


THERE is no road or ready way to virtue; it is not an easie point of art to disentangle our selves from this riddle, or web of sin.
Sir Thomas Browne


THE best measure of the profundity of any religious doctrine is given by its conception of sin and the cure of sin.
Henri F. Amiel


IN God’s presence sin gets an infinite significance.
R. W. Barbour
