"The Christian, above all men, needs courage. A cowardly spirit unfits us for the lowest duty. It is the valant who takes heaven by a holy violence. The soldiers of Christ must have a heroic spirit and dare to be holy in spite of men and devils. Sinners are bold, and shall saints be timid? The one resolves to be wicked, and shall the other be wavering in his holy course? Hell keeps the field impudently, with displayed banners of open profanities, and shall saints hide themselves for shame? Oh, let this never be the case with the armies of the living God!"  --Isaac Ambrose, The Christian Warrior
