"The law of the Sabbath is the keystone of the arch of public morals; take it away, and the whole fabric falls."

"The habit of committing our thoughts to writing is a powerful means of expanding the mind, and producing a logical and systematic arrangement of our views and opinions. It is this which gives the writer a vast superiority, as to the accuracy and extent of his conceptions, over the mere talker. No one can ever hope to know the principles of any art or science thoroughly who does not write as well as read upon the subject."

"The savings bank of human existence is the weekly Sabbath."
