Author Quotes

A good lather is half the shave.

Here quench your thirst, and mark in me
An emblem of true charity;
Who, while my bounty I bestow,
Am neither seen, nor heard to flow.

The proudest heart that ever beat,
Hath been subdued in me;
The wildest will that ever rose--
To scorn thy cause or aid thy foes--
Is quelled, my God, by Thee!

Thy will, and not my will, be done;
Henceforth I'd be forever Thine;
Confessing Thee, the Living Word...

Do not trouble another for what you can do yourself.

Passion will master you, if you do not master your passion.
