Richard Baxter
 
        Christ leads me through no darker rooms
Than He went through before.
  1
  God takes men’s hearty desires and will, instead of the deed, where they have not power to fulfill it; but he never took the bare deed instead of the will.  2
  I must confess, as the experience of my own soul, that the expectation of loving my friends in heaven principally kindles my love to them while on earth.  3
  If I were but sure that I should live to see the coming of the Lord, it would be the joyfulest tidings in the world. O that I might see His kingdom come! It is the characteristic of His saints to love His appearing, and to look for that blessed hope. “The Spirit and the bride say, Come.” “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”  4
  It is not the reading of many books which is necessary to make a man wise or good, but the well-reading of a few, could he be sure to have the best. And it is not possible to read over many on the same subject without a great deal of loss of precious time.  5
  Paganism attributes the creation of the world to blind chance.  6
  The soul that lives, ascends frequently, and runs familiarly through the streets of the heavenly Jerusalem, visiting the patriarchs and prophets, saluting the apostles, and admiring the army of martyrs. So do thou lead on thy heart and bring it to the palace of the Great King.  7
  You will cast away your cards and dice when you find the sweetness of youthful learning.  8
