Strana 120 - I wish to emphasize a yet higher and wider conception — that all social service in its broadest sense is but a reasonable Christian activity. Not only in his private life, but also in his public life, a man may bring Christ's dynamic power into the community; and only in that way can rich and poor, the struggling and those at ease, ever hope to behold "how good and pleasant a thing it is to dwell together in unity.
Strana 67 - Heaven doth with us as we with torches do, Not light them for themselves; for if our virtues Did not go forth of us, 't were all alike As if we had them not.
Strana 104 - Religion is much more necessary in the republic which they set forth in glowing colors, than in the monarchy which they attack ; and it is more needed in democratic republics than in any others. How is it possible that society should escape destruction if the moral tie be not strengthened in proportion as the political tie is relaxed ? and what can be done with a people which is its own master, if it be not submissive to the Divinity ? PRINCIPAL CAUSES WHICH RENDER RELIGION POWERFUL IN AMERICA.
Strana 150 - I only stay for a time alongside of what I call my property, I am still delighted with all I get, enjoying immensely the use of it while I have it, and believing, as Christ teaches, that so-called death cannot rob me of spiritual friendships and assets. If I count what I can contribute to life, and not what I can get out of it, that of itself makes it worth while. The gauge is not what we have, but what we do with what we have. I am as sure that I am not my body as I am that I am not my.house.
