John Macduff Quotes

Scottish clergyman
(1818 - 1895)

Not to enjoy life, but to employ life, ought to be our aim and inspiration.

Prejudice is the conjuror of imaginary wrongs, strangling truth, over­powering reason, making strong men weak and weak men weaker. God give us the large-hearted charity which "beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things," which "thinketh no evil!"

Trust God where you cannot trace him. Do not try to penetrate the cloud he brings over you; rather look to the bow that is on it. The mystery is God's; the promise is yours.
