CULVERWELL, Nathaniel Quotes
(1619-1651), English divine
See how powerful religion is: it commands the heart, it commands the vitals. Morality comes with a pruning-knife, and cuts off all sproutings, all wild luxuriances; but religion lays the axe to the root of the tree. Morality looks that the skin of the apple be fair; but religion searcheth to the very core.
The body, that is but dust; the soul, it is a bud of eternity.
