Every time you draw your breath, you suck in mercy.
What temporal mercies have you received! every time you draw your breath, you suck in mercy; every bit of bread you eat, the hand of mercy carves it out to you; you never drink but in a golden cup of mercy.

- Let us delight in the knowledge of Christ crucified, and be often in the thoughts and study of him. Study Christ, not only as living, but dying; not as breathing in our air, but suffering in our stead; know him as a victim, which is the way to know him as a conqueror. Christ as crucified is the great object of faith.
- Theology has two parts: the first, of God; the second, of His works.
- Faith is the master-wheel, it sets all the other graces a-running.
- If God be an incomparable God, then incomparable service and worship is due to him.
- There is no death of sin without the death of Christ.
