worldly Quotes

Five of the best book quotes about worldly
  1. #1
    “No, God and the world, God and its goods are incompatible, because the world and its goods make a bid for our hearts, and only when they have won them do they become what they really are. That is how they thrive, and that is why they are incompatible with allegiance to God. Our hearts have room only for one all-embracing devotion, and we can only cleave to one Lord. ”
  2. #2
    “Be at least as interested in what goes on inside you as what happens outside. If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.”
  3. #3
    “Nothing out there will ever satisfy you except temporarily and superficially, but you may need to experience many disillusionments before you realize that truth.”
  4. #4
    “The modern scientist has lost God amid the wonders of His world.”
  5. #5
    “Consider the nature of all worldly sensible things; of those especially, which either ensnare by pleasure, or for their irksomeness are dreadful, or for their outward lustre and show are in great esteem and request, how vile and contemptible, how base and corruptible, how destitute of all true life and being they are.”
