Sabbath Keeping

~ Cosmos ~

"The way to bliss lies not on beds of down,
And he that had no cross deserves no crown."
~ Francis Quarles ~

"He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind..." ~ Proverbs 11:29 ~ 

"A good name, like good will, is got by many actions and lost by one."  ~ Lord Jeffrey ~

"Nature is a good name for an effect whose cause is God." ~ William Cowper ~

"A man's reputation draws eyes upon him that will narrowly inspect every part of him."
~ Joseph Addison ~

"Ceremony leads her bigots forth, prepared to fight for shadows of no worth. While truths, on which eternal things depend, can hardly find a single friend." ~ William Cowper ~

"Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of - for credit is like fire; when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear." ~ Socrates ~

"Some would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism." ~ Norman Vincent Peale ~

"Time never fails to bring every exalted reputation to a strict scrutiny." ~ Fisher Ames ~

Until next time,

Blessings ~ a gentle thirst quenching rain for the earth ~ a good sermon by a fine preacher in a little country church ~ health ~ happiness ~ a Sabbath day to be kept holy ~


  1. Blessings to you!
    Your header is gorgeous and your new blog arrangement is very nice!!!
    Hope you are staying well,

  2. The end result of our actions and reputation are always a commentary on our name..and our family name and associations. A name is a valuable thing to be guarded with good and honorable actions. Great post.

  3. Your quotes are most thought-provoking, thank you for them, especially the Socrates one, so very,very true!
    I love your header photo too, and the edge of the tree!
    Thank you for visiting, and following, and thank you with your help on Saturday sorting out the 'follower' button! Much appreciated!

  4. Hi. Beautiful picture in the banner and the post is also great. I like quotes in general. That reminds me my schooldays and lectures of philosophy. That one of Socrates is I think my favorite one but the others are not less good.
