"There are many who preach Christ, but not so many who live Christ.  My great aim will be to live Christ." R. C. Chapman                                        "Our merriment must be of that kind (and it is, in fact, the merriest kind) which exists between people who have, from the outset, taken each other seriously - no flippancy, no superiority, no presumption.   And our charity must be a real and costly love, with deep feeling for the sins in spite of which we love the sinner - no mere tolerance or indulgence which parodies love as flippancy parodies merriment." - C. S. Lewis                                         "We must love our fellows, without expecting friendship from them; they leave us and return, they go and come; let them do as they will; it is but a feather, the sport of the wind.  See God only in them; it is He that afflicts or consoles us, by means of them, according as we have need." - Fenelon                                        "Come near to the holy men and women of the past and you will soon feel the heat of their desire after God....  They prayed and wrestled and sought...in season and out, and when they had found Him the finding was all the sweeter for the long seeking." - A. W. Tozer                                        "The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting.  It has been found difficult; and left untried." - G. K. Chesterton                                        "The whole substance of religion is faith, hope, and love....  All things are possible to him who believes, they are less difficult to him who hopes, they are more easy to him who loves, and still more easy to him who perseveres in the practice of these three virtues. " - Brother Lawrence                                        "Worship is the submission of all of our nature to God.  It is the quickening of conscience by His holiness, the nourishment of mind by His truth, the purifying of imagination by His beauty, the opening of the heart to His love, and the submission of will to His purpose.  And all of this gathered up in adoration is the greatest expression of which we are capable." - William Temple                                        "God is not seeking a display of my Christ-likeness, but a manifestation of His Christ." - Watchman Nee
