Hosea Ballou
Idleness is emptiness; the tree in which the sap is stagnant, remains fruitless.
Ballou quotes
A chaste and lucid style is indicative of the same personal traits in the author.
Ballou
If our Creator has so bountifully provided for our existence here, which is but momentary, and for our temporal wants, which will soon be forgotten, how much more must He have done for our enjoyment in the everlasting world?




Ballou Hosea quotes
Education commences at the mother's knee, and every word spoken within the hearsay of little children tends towards the formation of character.
Ballou Hosea
There is one inevitable criterion of judgment touching religious faith in doctrinal matters. Can you reduce it to practice? If not, have none of it.
Hosea Ballou quotes
As "unkindness has no remedy at law," let its avoidance be with you a point of honor.
Hosea Ballou
Real happiness is cheap enough, yet how dearly we pay for its counterfeit.
Ballou Hosea quotes
Humanity, in the aggregate, is progressing, and philanthropy looks forward hopefully.
Ballou
God's glowing covenant.
Ballou Hosea
Hatred is self-punishment.
