The Heart, Morality, and Civility

The natural heart is . . .
the nursery of sin,
the magazine where all the weapons of wickedness lie,
full of antipathy against God,
a lesser Hell!

Morality is but nature refined--old Adam put in a better dress. The garnishing of man with moral excellencies, is but adorning a dead man with a garland of flowers!

Civility is not grace, although it is a good wall against which to plant the vine of grace.
