"None so empty of grace as he that thinks he is full."
- Thomas Watson

"Grace puts its hand on the boasting mouth, and shuts it once for all."
- Charles Spurgeon

"The text says that when the Lord saw that Leah was not loved, 
he loved her. God was saying, 'I am the real bridegroom. I am the 
husband of the husbandless. I am the father of the fatherless.' This 
is the God who saves by grace. The Gods of moralistic religions 
favor the successful and the overachievers. They are the ones who 
climb the moral ladder up to heaven. But the God of the Bible is 
the one who comes down into this world to accomplish a salvation 
and give us a grace we could never attain ourselves."
- Tim Keller

"Grace is but Glory begun, and Glory is but Grace perfected."
- Jonathan Edwards

"Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring 
repentance... Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace 
without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ."
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"Christians do not practically remember that while we are saved 
by grace, altogether by grace, so that in the matter of salvation 
works are altogether excluded; yet that so far as the rewards of 
grace are concerned, in the world to come, there is an intimate 
connection between the life of the Christian here and the 
enjoyment and the glory in the day of Christ's appearing."
- George Mueller
