The human heart has so many crannies where vanity hides, so many holes where falsehood works, is so decked out with deceiving hypocrisy — that it often dupes itself!
— John Calvin
The poor broken-hearted sinner, going into his bedroom, bends his knee, but can only utter his mournful cry in the language of sighs and tears. Look! that groan has made all the harps of heaven thrill with music; that tear has been caught by God, and put into a vase made especially for tears, to be perpetually preserved.
— C. H. Spurgeon
