  • The Book of Daniel is especially fitted to be a battle-ground between faith and unbelief. It admits of no half-way measures. It is either divine or an imposture. The writer, were he not Daniel, must have lied on a most frightful scale.
    • Daniel the Prophet (1865)
  • In all adversity, what God takes away He may give us back with increase.
    • Letter to Charles Dodgson, Jan 1851, following the death of Dodgson's wife.
    • Quoted in The Life and Letters of Lewis Carroll (1898) p. 48
  • Take steadily some one sin, which seems to stand out before thee, to root it out, by God's grace, and every fibre of it. Purpose strongly, by the grace and strength of God, wholly to sacrifice this sin or sinful inclination to the love of God, to spare it not, until thou leave of it none remaining, neither root nor branch.

    Fix, by God's help, not only to root out this sin, but to set thyself to gain, by that same help, the opposite grace. If thou art tempted to be angry, try hard, by God's grace, to be very meek; if to be proud, seek to be very humble.

    • Quoted in "Daily Strength For Daily Needs "
