November 9

NO coward soul is mine,
No trembler in the world’s storm-troubled sphere:
I see Heaven’s glories shine,
And faith shines equal, arming me from fear.
Emily Bronte


THE whole theory of life—silently felt rather than deliberately thought—has irrevocably changed; consecrating this world, disenchanting the other of a thousand terrors; softening every curse, deepening every trust, and finding the mysteries of eternity already present at every hour of time.
James Martineau


HAVE a glimpse of incomprehensibles, and Thoughts of things which Thoughts but tenderly touch. Lodge immaterials in thy Head; ascend unto invisibles; fill thy Spirit with spirituals, with the Mysteries of Faith, the magnalities of Religion, and thy Life with the Honour of God.
Sir Thomas Browne

FAITH is nothing in itself. It is its object which is everything. It is just the opening of the soul which lets in God.
R. W. Barbour
