**We were...teaching theology in the face of death. There the only thing that was of any help was the gospel itself. Everything else simply dissolved into thin air. We were living upon only the substance of our faith. And, these desperate hours also helped us to find that substance.

**The world does not remember its heroes, but there will be no unrecognized Christian worker in Heaven. Each one known by all; grandly known; known by acclamation; all the past story of work for God gleamimg in cheek, brow, and foot, and palm. They shall shine with distinct light, as the stars for ever and ever.

**No man will discharge his duties to the Church and the Church's Lord who is not continually watchful, and any man who has received a charge for any kind of service from Jesus, and neglects it, is a fool, in the deepest sense of that word.

-- Alexander MacLaren


**Everyone possesses some talents. He who has bestowed them expects that we shall diligently improve them. He has departed, but He desires that we should act as in His presence. In this respect He is never absent--"Lo, I am with you alway."

-- William Arnot


**When we are engaged in His work we are very close to Christ. We are expending our anxiety and affections on the same objects on which His heart is set.

-- Sir Robert Anderson
