“This man who desires Jesus’ judgment upon his life asks for nothing other or less than God’s judgment. Is he conscious of this? Is he prepared to listen to this judgment? Has he come to Him for it? Is he willing and ready to listen not to the instruction of a good human teacher, but to that of the divine Teacher himself? It is possible to listen to the instruction of a human teacher . . . only to make up our mind and act . . . on the basis of our own judgment. But this cannot be done with Jesus. Jesus is not a “good teacher” of this kind.” – Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics II/2, p.614.

“Take this rule: whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes off your relish of spiritual things; in short, whatever increases the strength and authority of your body over your mind, that thing is sin to you, however innocent it may be in itself.” – Susanna Wesley in a letter to her son John Wesley

“Hell is not to love anymore. As long as we remain in this life we can still deceive ourselves, think that we love by our own will, that we love independently of God. But we’re like madmen stretching out hands to clasp the moon reflected in water.” – George Bernanos,  The Diary of a Country Priest,

“Habits are like stones rolling downhill – the further they roll, the faster and more ungovernable is their course. Habits, like trees, are strengthened by age. A boy may bend an oak when it is a sapling – a hundred men cannot root it up, when it is a full-grown tree.” – J. C. Ryle, Thoughts for Young Men, p.15
