• Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world. ~C. S. Lewis

  • There is nothing in the world more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God.

It is not pleasure which we ought to seek in this exercise; but let us do it from a principle of love, and because God would have us. ~Brother Lawrence

  • It’s easy to deceive ourselves by “trusting in the Lord.” It is a command of God, but if we “trust in the Lord” mainly to get us through medical school, then our real trust rests in the letters “M. D.” after our name. We simply use God to get what we most trust in. ~Sam Williamson

  • “The relation of geology, as well as astronomy, to the Bible, when both are well understood, is that of perfect harmony . . . The Word and the works of God cannot conflict, and the more they are studied the more perfect will their harmony appear.” ~>Benjamin Silliman, founder of the American Journal of Science and Arts

  • “There never was found, in any age of the world, either philosophy, or sect, or religion, or law, or discipline, which did so highly exalt the good of the community, and increase private and particular good as the holy Christian faith. Hence, it clearly appears that it was one and the same God that gave the Christian law to men, who gave the laws of nature to the creatures.” ~Sir Francis Bacon
