VAN DYKE, Henry Quotes
(1852-1933), American clergyman and author
The lintel low enough to keep out pomp and pride; the threshold high enough to turn deceit aside; the door-band strong enough from robbers to defend: this door will open at a touch to welcome every friend.
Who seeks for heaven alone to save his soul may keep the path, but will not reach the goal; while he who walks in love may wander far, yet God will bring him where the blessed are.
Every house where love abides and friendship is a guest, is surely home, and home, sweet home; for there the heart can rest.
