C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
S. Irenæus Prime
  God is the only sure foundation on which the mind can rest.  1
  Happy are they who freely mingle prayer and toil till God responds to the one and rewards the other.  2
  It is not the way to convert a sinner to knock him down first and then reason with him.  3
  It is quite likely that the modern contrivances for making Sunday-schools amusing have given them a distaste for the more solemn services of the sanctuary. If so, the amusement is a sin. The schools should feed the church. Children ought to be led by one into the other, exposed to the preaching of the gospel, taught the ways of God’s house, and brought up under its influence, with all its hallowed and elevating influences.  4
  Patience and perseverance are never more thoroughly Christian graces than when features of prayer.  5
  Recreation is not the highest kind of enjoyment; but in its time and place it is quite as proper as prayer.  6
