C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Sermon (See Preaching)
 
  I would not have preachers torment their hearers, and detain them with long and tedious preaching.
Luther.

  A divine ought to calculate his sermons as an astrologer does his almanac—to the meridian of the place and people where he lives.
Hughes.    
  2
  Reasons are the pillars of the fabric of a sermon, but similitudes are the windows which give the best light. The faithful minister avoids such stories whose mention may suggest bad thoughts to the auditors, and will not use a light comparison to make thereof a grave application, for fear lest his poison go further than his antidote.
Fuller.
