Marvel not that I said to you, You must be born again.
— I've seen luxuriant grasses growing on the tops of graves; I've seen flowers springing from the crevices of tombs; and like these are the fair and lovely moralities, and the social virtues which adorn the character of him who is not born of God's Spirit. The corpse, with its corruptions, .its wasting flesh, and its decaying bones, is beneath the fragrant flowers.
(H. W. Beecher.)
