Penitence
 
  He who is penitent is almost innocent.
Seneca.    
  1
  Christian penitence is something more than a thought or an emotion or a tear; it is action.
William Adams.    
  2
  It would tire the hands of an angel to write down all the pardons God bestows upon true, penitent believers.
Joshua Bates.    
  3
  Know what your sin is and confess it; but do not imagine that you have approved yourself a penitent by confessing sin in the abstract.
T. L. Cuyler.    
  4
  If we do not know what the sorrow of penitence is, we have been living only on the surface of life—unmindful of its deep realities, unconscious of its grander glories.
F. D. Huntington.    
  5
  The law can never save us; and he is nearest to the forgiveness of the gospel who, with a contrite heart, discerns most clearly and feels most profoundly that perfection of the Divine statute which impeaches and condemns him.
William Adams.
