A Quote by Charles Kingsley on contentment, control, diligence, force, god, idleness, self-control, strength, and work

Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do which must be done, whether you like it or not. Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance, self-control, diligence, strength of will, content, and a hundred other virtues which the idle never know.

A Quote by Charles Kingsley on admiration, dreams, fatherhood, gifts, god, good, grace, heaven, life, men, power, religion, saints, sermons, spirit, thought, and worth

One good man, one man who does not put on his religion once a week with his Sunday coat, but wears it for his working dress, and lets the thought of God grow into him, and through and through him, till everything he says and does becomes religious, that man is worth a thousand sermons - he is a living Gospel - he comes in the spirit and power of Elias - he is the image of God. And men see his good works, and admire them in spite of themselves, and see that they are Godlike, and that God's grace is no dream, but that the Holy Spirit is still among men, and that all nobleness and manliness is His gift, His stamp, His picture: and so they get a glimpse of God again in His saints and heroes, and glorify their Father who is in heaven.
