Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
Only Thou art holy; There is none beside Thee
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.
— Reginald Heber
True holiness does not consist merely of believing and feeling, but of doing and bearing, and a practical exhibition of active and passive grace. Our tongues, our tempers, our natural passions and inclinations – our conduct as parents and children, masters and servants, husbands and wives, rulers , and subjects – our dress, our employment of time, our behavior in business, our demeanor in sickness and health, in riches and poverty – all, all these are matters which are fully treated by inspired writers.
— J. C. Ryle
