"True godliness does not turn men out of the world, but enables them to live better in it and excites their endeavors to mend it."
-William Penn

"The contemplation of the saints is fired by the love of the one contemplated: that is, God."
Albert the Great

"Prayer-secret, fervent, believing prayer-lies at the root of all personal godliness."
William Carey

These quotes are from Celebration of Discipline, by Richard Foster. This is one of my favorite books, one of my "top six." I'm reading it again for the billionth time (or so it seems), and yet it is as challenging as ever! The book teaches on spiritual disciplines and how to practice them. I feel like such a child about these things, still learning and understanding the basics of godliness.
