August 12

MY God, my God, let me for once look on Thee
As though nought else existed, we alone!
And as creation crumbles, my soul’s spark
Expands till I can say,—Even from myself
I need Thee and I feel Thee and I love Thee.
Robert Browning

RELIGION is not a method, it is a life, a higher and supernatural life, mystical in its root, and practical in its fruits; a communion with God, a calm and deep enthusiasm, a love which radiates, a force which acts, a happiness which overflows.
Henri F. Amiel

IT is evident that religion consists so much in affection, as that without holy affection there is no true religion. And no light in the understanding is good which does not produce holy affection in the heart.
Jonathan Edwards

IT is not the Church we want, but the sacrifice; not the emotion of admiration, but the act of adoration; not the gift, but the giving.
John Ruskin
