„This means, in popular imagination, that bread and clothes shall grow, ready-made, on trees. Do you have more winged ideals?“

—  I. L. Peretz, Context: A Jew waits for Messiah to come and redeem the world from fear and pain, from the cataclysmic conflicts between rich and poor. All shall enjoy the earth. This means, in popular imagination, that bread and clothes shall grow, ready-made, on trees. Do you have more winged ideals? Advice to the Estranged. S. Liptzin. Peretz. Yivo, 1947, p. 348.

„Beware, lastly, of imagining you shall obtain the end without using the means conducive to it.“

—  John Wesley Christian theologian 1703 - 1791
Context: Beware, lastly, of imagining you shall obtain the end without using the means conducive to it. God can give the end without any means at all; but you have no reason to think He will. Therefore constantly and carefully use all those means which He has appointed to be the ordinary channels of His grace. Use every means which either reason or Scripture recommends, as conducive (through the free love of God in Christ) either to the obtaining or increasing any of the gifts of God. Thus expect a daily growth in that pure and holy religion which the world always did, and always will, call “enthusiasm;” but which, to all who are saved from real enthusiasm, from merely nominal Christianity, is “the wisdom of God, and the power of God;” the glorious image of the Most High; “righteousness and peace;” a “fountain of living water, springing up into everlasting life!” Sermon 37 "The Nature of Enthusiasm"
