James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
F. W. Faber
 
  Amare et sapere vix deo conceditur—To be in love and act wisely is scarcely in the power of a god.  1
  Faith is letting down our nets into the untransparent deeps at the Divine command, not knowing what we shall take.  2
  For right is right, since God is God, / And right the day must win; / To doubt would be disloyalty, / To falter would be sin.  3
  He always wins who sides with God.  4
  Labour itself is but a sorrowful song, / The protest of the weak against the strong.  5
  Right is right, since God is God.  6
  The love of God is broader than the measure of man’s mind.  7
  There is no place where earth’s sorrows / Are more felt than up in heaven; / There is no place where earth’s failings / Have such kindly judgment given.  8
  Thou dost not strive, O Sun, but, meek and still, / Thou dost the type of Jesus best fulfil, / A noiseless revelation in the sky.  9
