Quotables from Vavasor Powell (1617-1670), a Welsh Puritan:

“Reading the scriptures helps meditation, meditation prayer, and prayer every good work.”

“Christ puts most of his oil in broken vessels; in broken hearts there is most grace and best kept.”

“Slothfulness is the cradle of sin and the Devil rocks it.”

“Sin’s best is before, but its worst is behind; and the sting and tail of it longer than itself.”

“Learn by lighter crosses to look and prepare for heavier.”
