Nathaniel Emmons
There is not a single spot between Christianity and atheism, upon which a man can firmly fix his foot.
Emmons quotes
Style should be like window-glass, perfectly transparent, and with very little sash.
I could never think well of a man's intellectual or moral character if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments.

Emmons Nathaniel quotes
Moral conduct includes every thing in which men are active and for which they are accountable. They are active in their desires, their affections, their designs, their intentions, and in every thing they say and do of choice; and for all these things they are accountable to God.
Emmons Nathaniel
Any fact is better established by two or three good testimonies than by a thousand arguments.
Nathaniel Emmons quotes
Be short in all religious exercises. Better leave the people longing than loathing. No conversion after the first half hour.
Nathaniel Emmons
The weakest spot in every man is where he thinks himself to be the wisest.
