I have never heard of a sin being committed without knowing full well that I had the seed of it within myself.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A humble person can neither be put down nor exalted; he can neither be humiliated nor honored: he remains the same person under all circumstances.
Spread abroad the name of Jesus in humility and with a meek heart; show him your feebleness, and he will become your strength.
Most people plot and plan themselves into mediocrity, while now and again somebody forgets himself into greatness.
E. Stanley Jones
Never be afraid of the world’s censure; it’s praise is much more to be dreaded.
C. H. Spurgeon
