THRICE blest whose lives are faithful prayers,
Whose loves in higher love endure;
What souls possess themselves so pure,
Or is their blessedness like theirs?
Alfred Tennyson


THAT religion which God requires, and will accept, does not consist in weak, dull, and lifeless wouldings, raising us but a little above a state of indifference. God, in His word, greatly insists upon it, that we be in good earnest, fervent in spirit, and our hearts vigorously engaged in religion.
Jonathan Edwards


RELIGION is neither a theology nor a theosophy; it is more than that, it is a discipline, a law, a yoke, an indissoluble engagement.
Joseph Joubert


TO me religion is life before God and in God.
Henri F. Amiel
