Those that hope little cannot grow much.

GEORGE MACDONALD, The Hope of the Gospel

When I can no more stir my soul to move,
And life is but the ashes of a fire;
When I can but remember that my heart
Once used to live and love, long and aspire--
Oh, be thou then the first, the one thou art;
Be thou the calling, before all answering love,
And in me wake hope, fear, boundless desire.

GEORGE MACDONALD, Diary of an Old Soul

GEORGE MACDONALD, The Marquis of Lossie

Obedience is the key to every door.

GEORGE MACDONALD, The Marquis of Lossie

GEORGE MACDONALD, Wilfrid Cumbermede: An Autobiographical Story
