“We cannot hinder the conception of sin, but we may strangle it before coming to the birth by means of action.” (Page 6)

“Just so the Church is adorned with a marvellous variety of admirable treatises, sermons, and books, in which the Sun of Righteousness mingles His bright rays with the glowing hues which flow from the rich plumage of His mystic Dove. And prevailing above all tints and tones, gilding all saintly wisdom and eloquence, is the pure gold of Divine Love. In the Church of God all is of love, in love, to love, and for love.” (Pages v–vi)

“Just so the will assumes the character of that love to which it is wedded,—carnal if it be carnal, spiritual if it be spiritual; and all the affections which issue thence,—desire, joy, hope, fear, sadness, take their shape likewise from that source. The will is acted upon by the affections, among which love is foremost, and it shapes all that follow.” (Page 9)

“Therefore the aim and end of love is nothing less than union between him who loves and the object of his love” (Page 21)

“when we fix our love on Jesus Christ we have anchored our spiritual life in Him.” (Page 234)
