C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • Nature is a revelation of God;
  • Art a revelation of man.
  • Longfellow.

  • ’Tis Revelation satisfies all doubts,
  • Explains all mysteries except her own,
  • And so illuminates the path of life,
  • That fools discover it, and stray no more.
  • Cowper.

  • Lochiel, Lochiel! beware of the day;
  • For, dark and despairing, my sight I may seal
  • But man cannot cover what God would reveal;
  • ’Tis the sunset of life gives me mystical lore,
  • And coming events cast their shadows before.
  • Campbell.

    I am verily persuaded the Lord has more truth yet to break forth out of His holy word.***I beseech you, remember (it is an article of your church covenant) that you be ready to receive whatever truth shall be made known to you from the word of God.

    John Robinson.
