"The Christian on his knees sees more than the philosopher on
tiptoe." - D. L. Moody

"There is nothing that makes us love a man so much as praying
for him." - William Law

"You shall find this to be God´s usual course: not to give his
children the taste of his delights till they begin to sweat in seeking
after them." - Richard Baxter

The invasion of the Church by the world is a menace to the
extension of Christ's Kingdom. In all ages conformity to the world
by Christians has resulted in lack of spiritual life and a consequent
lack of spiritual vision and enterprise. A secularized or
self-centered Church can never evangelize the world." - John R. Mott

"The astonishing missionary advance at the close of the
eighteenth century and the onset of the nineteenth was a direct
consequence of the Evangelical Awakening." - A. Skevington Wood

"Oh, for closest communion with God, till soul and body, head,
face, and heart - shine with Divine brilliancy! But oh! for a holy
ignorance of our shining!" - Robert Murray M'Cheyne

"Compassion costs. It is easy enough to argue, criticize and
condemn, but redemption is costly, and comfort draws from the
deep. Brains can argue, but It takes heart to comfort." -Samuel Chadwick

"How careful we should be lest we misrepresent a real work of
grace because of some things which occasionally may accompany
it! When Whitefield was once preaching in Boston, the place was
so packed that the gallery was thought to be giving way, and there
was a panic in which several persons were trampled to death. But
it would be unfair and unreasonable to blame the revival for this...
We do not despise the great river because of the sticks and
straws that may occasionally float on its surface."
 - William Alexander McKay (1890)

"In every revival there is a reemphasis of the Church's missionary
character. Men return to Calvary, and the world is seen afresh
through the eyes of Christ. The infinite compassion of Christ fills
the heart, and the passion evoked by Calvary demands the whole
wide world as the fruit of His sacrifice." - John Shearer
