Potent Quotables (3/26)

C.J. Mahaney:

A husband’s love for his wife, as Puritan preacher John Wing put it, “must be the most dear, intimate, precious and entire that heart can have toward a creature; none but the love of God… is above it, none but the love of ourselves is fellow to it, all the love of others is inferior to it.”

G.K. Chesterton:

Brave men are vertebrates; they have their softness on the surface and their toughness in the middle. But these modern cowards are all crustaceans; their hardness is all on the cover and their softness is inside.

Larry Crabb:

People who insist on happiness never find joy.

Henry Van Dyke:

Genius is talent set on fire by courage. Fidelity is simply daring to be true in small things as well as great.

Oliver Wendell Holmes:

When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the World, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it come off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away timid adventurers.
