"Do not grudge the Hand that is moulding
the still too shapeless image within you.
It is growing more beautiful,
though you see it not,
and every touch of temptation
may add to its perfection."
- Henry Drummond
"You have escaped the formidable rocks.
[But] Beware lest you are wrecked on the sands."
- Gregory Nazianzen
"Temptation usually comes in through a door
that has deliberately been left open."
- Arnold Glasow
“Therefore, whoever thinks he is standing securely
should watch out so he doesn’t fall.
No temptation has overtaken you
that is unusual for human beings.
But God is faithful, and he will not allow you
to be tempted beyond your strength.
Instead, along with the temptation
he will also provide a way out,
so that you may be able to endure it.”
- 1 Corinthians 10:12,13 ISV
