Matthew Henry quotes

After a storm comes a calm.

Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him.

None so deaf as those that will not hear. None so blind as those that will not see.

Extraordinary afflictions are not always the punishment of extraordinary sins, but sometimes the trial of extraordinary graces.

It is common for those that are farthest from God, to boast themselves most of their being near to the Church.

He whose head is in heaven need not fear to put his feet into the grave.

So great was the extremity of his pain and anguish, that he did not only sigh but roar.

No attribute of God is more dreadful to sinners than His holiness.

The way to preserve the peace of the church is to preserve its purity.

It is good for us to keep some account of our prayers, that we may not unsay them in our practice.

Many a dangerous temptation comes to us in gay, fine colours, that are but skin-deep.

Saying and doing are two things.

Sanctified afflictions are spiritual promotions.

Here is bread, which strengthens man's heart, and therefore is called the staff of Life.

It is not talking but walking that will bring us to heaven.

The Scriptures were written, not to make us astronomers, but to make us saints.

Those that go gold into the furnace will come out no worse.

Better late than never.

Men of polite learning and a liberal education.
