An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Cut your morning devotions into your personal grooming. You would not go out to work with a dirty face. Why start the day with the face of your soul unwashed?


Robert A. Cook


How rare it is to find a soul quiet enough to hear God speak.


Francois de Salignac Fenelon (1651-1715, French writer)


To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.


Martin Luther (1483-1546, German leader of the protestant reformation)


We are to be shut out from men, and shut in with God.


Andrew Murray


A devotee who can call on God while living a householder's life is a hero indeed. God thinks: "He is blessed indeed who prays to me in the midst of his worldly duties. He is trying to find me, overcoming a great obstacle -- pushing away, as it were, a huge block of stone weighing a ton. Such a man is a real hero."


Sri Ramakrishna (1836-1886, Indian mystic)


An essential condition of listening to God is that the mind should not be distracted by thoughts of resentment, ill-temper, hatred or vengeance, all of which are comprised in the general term, the wrath of man.


R. V. G. Tasker


Whatever is your best time in the day, give that to communion with God.


Hudson J. Taylor
