Cotton Mather

American colonist and writer
That there is a Devil is a thing doubted by none but such as are under the influence of the Devil. For any to deny the being of a Devil must be from ignorance or profaneness worse than diabolical.More Cotton Mather quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Chrysostom, I remember, mentions a twofold book of God: the book of the creatures, and the book of the scriptures. God, having taught us first of all by his works, did it afterwards, by his Words. We will now for a while read the former of these books; 'twill help us in reading the latter. They will admirably assist one another.More Cotton Mather quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Ah, children, be afraid of going prayerless to bed, lest the Devil be your bedfellow.More Cotton Mather quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What was it that obliged Jerome to write his book, Concerning Illustrious Men? It was the common reproach of old cast upon Christians, 'That they were all poor, weak, unlearned men.' The sort of men sometime called 'Puritans' in the English nation have been reproached with the same character. . . But when truth shall have liberty to speak, it will be known that Christianity never was more expressed unto the life than in the lives of the persons that have been thus reproached.More Cotton Mather quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A Good School deserves to be call'd, the very Salt of the Town, that hath it.More Cotton Mather quotes [07/22/2011 04:07:26]
