Excerpts"I don't know if you've ever seen anybody who is perfect. Sometimes I close my eyes and visualize some of the perfect people I have known. Here comes one now across the screen of my imagination. She is very satisfied because she has gotten the victory over cheese."
"Too many, in their striving for perfection, work at the level of sins and laws rather than letting God work in them at the level of SIN and LAW. Unfortunately, all the rules and regulations without the love of Jesus make for mighty dreary religion—or worse yet, destructive religion."
