'Tis all men's office to speak patience To those that wring under the load of sorrow, But no man's virtue nor sufficiency To be so moral when he shall endure The like himself.
I take one decisive and immediate step, and resign my all to the sufficiency of my Saviour.thomas chalmers
And he who in all things recognises himself as the servant of GOD may count on a sufficiency from GOD for all manner of need, and look with confident expectation to GOD to really prosper him in whatever he does.james hudson taylor
There is nothing in the nature of a miracle that should render it incredible:;: its credibility depends upon the nature of the evidence by which it is supported. An event of extreme probability will not necessarily command our belief unless upon a sufficiency of proof; and so an event which we may regard as highly improbable may command our belief if it is sustained by sufficient evidence. So that the credibility or incredibility of an event does not rest upon the nature of the event itself, but depends upon the nature and sufficiency of the proof which sustains it.Charles Babbage
The sufficiency of merit is to know that my merit is not sufficient.Francis Quarles
Even bronze is aged by time , but not all the ages, Diogenes, shall destroy thy fame, since you alone did show to mortals the rule of self -sufficiency and the easiest path of life .
