This grace (purity of intention) is so excellent that it sanctifies the most common actions of our life and yet is so necessary that without it, the very best actions of our devotion are imperfect and vicious.
'Tis use alone that sanctifies expense, And splendour borrows all her rays from sense.Alexander Pope
Now it is the blood of Jesus which saves, and it is the same blood which cleanses and sanctifies; and as we had to come lo Jesus to be plunged into the fountain, so we have to abide in Jesus by fellowship, to grow up into Christlikeness.abbott eliot kittredge
Power tends to corrupt , and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority : still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it.
The supreme crime of the church to-day is that everywhere and in all its operations and influences it is on the side of sloth of mind ; that it banishes brains, it sanctifies stupidity , it canonizes incompetence.upton sinclair

It is the passion that is in a kiss that gives to it its sweetness; it is the affection in a kiss that sanctifies it.christian nestell bovee
