Lent-type Quotations

2014 March 8
by Gordon Reid

Already ruing my rash resolve to blog 40 times in Lent, I turn to some short quotations I have always loved.

“More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of”.  (Tennyson)

“Laughter is wholesome. God is not so dull as some of the parsons have made out. Did he not make the kitten to chase its tail?” ( Heinrich Heine)

“That no keeping but a perfect one will satisfy God, I hold with all my heart and strength, but that there is none else He cares for is one of the lies of the Enemy. What father is not pleased with the first tottering steps of his little one to walk? What father would be satisfied with anything but the manly step of the full-grown son?” (George MacDonald)

“He is happy whose circumstances suit his temper, but he is more excellent, who can suit his temper  to any circumstance”. (David Hume)

“There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. It is God’s finger on man’s shoulder” (Charles Morgan)
