God’s goodness takes occasion, other quotes

The posting of quotes by human authors does not constitute agreement with either the quotes or their sources. (I try to confirm the sources that I give, but may miss on occasion; please verify if possible.)

"God's goodness takes occasion from man's badness to appear so much the more illustrious." -- Matthew Henry

"Spiritual knowledge differs very widely from carnal, intellectual, barren head knowledge. The one is a flowing river, the other a stagnant pool; the one fertilises the heart, and makes it fruitful in every good word and work; the other leaves it a barren swamp, in which creeps and crawls every hideous thing, and out of which ever rise miasma, disease, and death." -- J. C. Philpot

"It is when passions are most inflamed that fairness is most in jeopardy." -- Susan Collins

"Error often changes its connections, assumes new positions, and accommodates itself to prevailing customs and prejudices." -- Israel Robords

"Humility is a correct understanding of yourself." -- Robert Picirilli

"I come from a long line of people, no question about it." -- William Thornton

"There is a sweetness in the promises which captivates the heart; a beauty in Christ which wins the soul; a saving unction and power in the word of God, when applied, which draws forth toward it every secret and sacred affection." -- J. C. Philpot
