By sharing it [love] grows/ By giving it up it nurtures/ By dying it deepens./ By being it becomes.
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide; When other helpers fail and comforts flee, Help of the helpless,O, abide with me.Henry Francis Lyte
Can my fond heart, on such a feeble proof,Embrace a faith, abhorred by him I love?I see too plainly custom forms us all;Our thoughts, our morals, our most fixed belief,Are consequences of our place of birth:Born beyond Ganges, I had been a Pagan;In France, a Christian; I am here a Saracen :'Tis but instruction, all! Our parents' handWrites on our heart the first faint characters,Which time, re-tracing, deepens into strength,That nothing can efface, but death or Heaven.aaron hill
Man hands on misery to man. It deepens like a coastal shelf.Get out as early as you can, And don't have any kids yourself.philip larkin
Many books in my library are now behind and beneath me. They were good in their way once, and so were the clothes I wore when I was ten years old; but I have outgrown them. Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.charles haddon spurgeon
Activity in the kingdom of God augments the power of spiritual life, and deepens the consciousness of religious realities.
