Quotes from the Clouds #44

This year, I hope share weekly posts of quotes. These quotes are from authors I'm reading and enjoying from the Clouds of Witnesses Reading Challenge

For fellow participants, what I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see is for people to share quotes from what they're reading. I'd love for you to share quotes occasionally with your readers and let me know about it. If you don't have a blog, you could always leave quotes in the comments here.
Every man, whatsoever his condition, desires to be happy. ~ Augustine
All men seek happiness. This is without exception…the will never takes the least step but to this object. This is the motive of every action of every man, even of those who hang themselves. ~ Blaise Pascal
It is as natural for the reasonable creature to desire to be happy as it is for fire to burn. ~ Thomas Manton
All men naturally hunger and thirst after happiness. ~ J.C. Ryle
They that pray in the family do well; they that pray and read the Scriptures do better; but they that pray, and read, and sing do best of all. ~ Matthew Henry
Every Christian family ought to be as it were a little church. ~ Jonathan Edwards
Consider family religion not merely as a duty imposed by authority, but as your greatest privilege granted by divine grace. ~ Samuel Davies
