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!"
[Prejudice]
 

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.
[Trust]
