I trust we are of the same seed, and shall at last stand before the same throne for ever; and who knows but we shall first be tied to the same stake, and ascend up in the same chariot. Let us not then quarrel, though we can’t see alike.

Howell Harris to John Wesley, Daniel Rowland pg. 92

You ought never to immediately send a harsh, rebuking letter or text message to someone, especially if you have written it in the heat of emotion. Let the message sit overnight. Let your passions cool, and then read the message again before you send it. This practice will save you much heartache that might otherwise spring from a hasty rashness.

Jim Orrick, Encountering God through Expository Preaching, pg 164

To have fellowship with men who deny the truth is to deny the truth by implying that the truth does not matter.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Biography: Volume Two, pg. 546
