However many blessings we expect from God, His infinite liberality will always exceed all our wishes and our thoughts.
— John Calvin
Keep your heart as you would keep a Garden. Your heart is a garden (Song of Solomon 4:12); weed all sin out of your heart. Among the flowers of the heart, weeds will be growing—the weeds of pride, malice, and covetousness: these grow without planting and cultivating. Therefore be weeding your heart daily by prayer, examination, and repentance.
— Thomas Watson
