    Meditation quotes by:    

Never be entirely idle; but either be reading, or writing, or praying or meditating or endeavoring something for the public good.

    Author: Thomas a Kempis

In place of our exhaustion and spiritual fatigue, God will give us rest. All He asks is that we come to Him...that we spend a while thinking about Him, meditating on Him, talking to Him, listening in silence, occupying ourselves with Him - totally and thoroughly lost in the hiding place of His presence.

    Author: Chuck Swindoll

Take this as the secret of Christ's life in you: His Spirit dwells in your innermost spirit. Meditate on it, believe in it, and remember it until this glorious truth produces within you a holy fear and wonderment that the Holy Spirit indeed abides in you!

    Author: Watchman Nee

Reading is good, hearing is good, conversation and meditation are good; but then, they are only good at times and occasions, in a certain degree, and must be used and governed with such caution as we eat and drink and refresh ourselves, or they will bring forth in us the fruits of intemperance.

    Author: William Law

Academical disputation gives vigor and briskness to the mind thus exercised, and relieves the languor of private study and meditation.

    Author: Isaac Watts

Though reading and conversation may furnish us with many ideas of men and things, yet it is our own meditation must form our judgment.

    Author: Isaac Watts

The sweet spices of divine works must be beaten to powder by meditation, and then laid up in the cabinet of our memories.

I will conclude with that excellent saying of Bernard: "Lord, I will never come away from Thee without Thee." Let this be a Christian's resolution, not to leave off his meditations of God till he find something of God in him.

Meditate on what you read (Psm. 199:15). The Hebrew word for "meditate" means to be intense in the mind. Meditation without reading is wrong and bound to err; reading without meditation is barren and fruitless.

    Author: Thomas Watson

The reason we come away so cold from reading the word is, because we do not warm ourselves at the fire of meditation.

    Author: Thomas Watson

The most intelligent hearers are those who enjoy most heartily the simplest preaching. It is not they who clamor for superlatively intellectual or aesthetic sermons. Daniel Webster used to complain of some of the preaching to which he listened. "In the house of God" he wanted to meditate "upon the simple varieties, and the undoubted facts of religion;" not upon mysteries and abstractions.

    Author: Austin Phelps

Give yourself to prayer, to reading and meditation on divine truths: strive to penetrate to the bottom of them and never be content with a superficial knowledge.
