REWARDED John Calvin: Whoever therefore would desire to persevere in uprightness and integrity in life, let them learn to exercise themselves daily in the study of the Word of God.

BE GLAD Stephen Charnock: The fool is the one that has lost his wisdom and right notion of God and divine things; not void in rational faculties but grace in those faculties; not one who lacks reason, but abuses reason.
