WE have but faith: we cannot know;
For knowledge is of things we see;
And yet we trust it comes from Thee,
A beam in darkness: let it grow.

Alfred Tennyson


REASON itself, in all its applications, must take the greatest for granted, in order to learn the least. You cannot refer the smallest object to its place, cannot trace the summer cloud or shooting star, without believing an immensity around its track. You cannot fix the date of the most trivial incident, without assuming an eternity in which it lies.
James Martineau


I HAD rather be instrumental in the communication of light and knowledge to the meanest believer, than to have the clearest success against prejudiced disputers.
John Owen


TAKE as many to heaven with you as ye are able to draw. The more ye draw with you, ye shall be the welcomer yourself.
Samuel Rutherford
