certain limits beyond which we refuse to go in offering ourselves to

God. We hover around these reservations, making believe not to

see them, for fear of self-reproach. The more we shrink from giving

up any such reserved point, the more certain it is that it needs to

be given up. If we were not fast bound by it, we should not make

so many efforts to persuade ourselves that we are free."

- François Fénelon

"The men that will change the colleges and seminaries here

represented are the men that will spend the most time alone with

God. It takes time for the fires to burn. It takes time for God to

assimilate His truth. You ask me, How much time? I do not know.

I know it means time enough to forget time." - John Mott

thy words without a heart." - John Bunyan
