Gems from Watson

"Let us grieve for the inclination of our affections. Our love is set on sin, our joy on the creature. Our affections... feed on dung..." (pg 74)

"It is better to mortify one sin than to understand all mysteries." (77)

[An objection to repenting]
"Oh, but my sins are out of measure sinful! [i.e., too great] Do not make them greater by not repenting. Repentance unravels sin and makes it as if it had never been." (79)

Thomas Watson, The Doctrine of Repentance.
