- If you have not chosen the Kingdom of God first, it will in the end make no difference what you have chosen instead.
- No education can be of true advantage to young women but that which trains them up in humble industry, in great plainness of living, in exact modesty of dress.
- This, and this alone, is Christianity, a universal holiness in every part of life, a heavenly wisdom in all our actions, not conforming to the spirit and temper of the world but turning all worldly enjoyments into means of piety and devotion to God.
