Jeremy Taylor
Faith converses with the angels, and antedates the hymns of glory.
Taylor quotes
Can any thing in this world be more foolish than to think that all this rare fabric of heaven and earth can come by chance, when all the skill of art is not able to make an oyster?
Taylor
The thing framed says that nothing framed it; the tongue never made itself to speak, and yet talks against him that did; saying that which is made, is, and that which made it, is not. But this folly is infinite as hell, as much without light or bound as the chaos or the primitive nothing.




Taylor Jeremy quotes
God is everywhere present by His power. He rolls the orbs of heaven with His hand; He fixes the earth with His foot; He guides all creatures with His eye, and refreshes them with His influence; He makes the powers of hell to shake with His terrors, and binds the devils with His word.
Taylor Jeremy
This grace (purity of intention) is so excellent that it sanctifies the most common actions of our life and yet is so necessary that without it, the very best actions of our devotion are imperfect and vicious.
Jeremy Taylor quotes
He that is choice of his time will be choice of his company,and choice of his actions.
Jeremy Taylor
Her heart was a passion-flower, bearing within it the crown of thorns and the cross of Christ.
