“The way to Heaven is ascending; we must be content to travel uphill, though it be hard and tiresome, and contrary to the natural bias of our flesh.”

“I assert that nothing ever comes to pass without a cause.”

“The best, most beautiful, and most perfect way that we have of expressing a sweet concord of mind to each other is by music.”

  1. Edwards was a very interesting person; I did a paper on the Great Awakening back when I was in college that focused heavily on him and many of the other so-called backwoods revivalists. Now you've got me interested again; might have to do some reading up on him.
