A child's eyes, those clear wells of undefiled thought - what on earth can be more beautiful? Full of hope, love and curiosity, they meet your own. In prayer, how earnest; in joy, how sparkling; in sympathy, how tender! The man who never tried the companionship of a little child has carelessly passed by one of the great pleasures of life, as one passes a rare flower without plucking it or knowing its value. Mrs. Norton
A child's service is little, yet he is no little fool that despises it.

A child's wisdom is also wisdom. Yiddish] A kindersher saichel iz oichet a saichel.
A childlike mind in its simplicity practises that science of good to which the wise may be blind. Schiller

A chine of honest bacon would please my appetite more than all the marrow-puddings, for I like them better plain, having a very vulgar stomach. Dryden
A chip of the old block.
A choisir, mieux vaut coryza que toux.
A chord, stronger or weaker, is snapped asunder in every parting, and Time's busy fingers are not practised in re-splicing broken ties. Meet again you may; will it be in the same way? with the same sympathies? with the same sentiments? Will the souls, hurrying on in diverse paths, unite once more, as if the interval had been a dream? Rarely, rarely. Bulwer-Lytton
A chose faite, conseil pris.
A chose faite, il faut bien qu'il y ait commencement.
A chose faite Point de remède. (Proverbe français)
A Christian builds his fortitude on a better foundation than stoicism; he is pleased with everything that happens, because he knows it could not happen unless it first pleased God, and that which pleases Him must be best. Colton
A Christian home! What a power it is to the child when he is far away in the cold, tempting world, and voices of sin are filling his ears, and his feet stand on slippery places. A. E. Kittredge
A Christian is a believer in Jesus. He believes that if he only throws his own lost and sinful soul on the Redeemer, there is in His sacrifice sufficient merit to cancel all his guilt, and in His heart sufficient love to undertake the keeping of his soul for all eternity. He believes that Jesus is a Saviour. He believes that His heart is set on His people's holiness, and that it is only by making them new creatures, pure-minded, kind-hearted, unselfish, devout, that He can fit them for a home and a life like His own, that He can fit them for the occupations and enjoyments of heaven. And believing all this he prays and labors after holiness. James Hamilton
A Christian is a man in Christ. 'If any man be in Christ.' A Christian is a man for Christ. 'Glorify God in your body and spirit which are God's. Richard Fuller
A Christian is God Almighty's gentleman; a gentleman, in the vulgar, superficial way of understanding the word, is the devil's christian. But to throw aside these polished and too current counterfeits for something valuable and sterling, the real gentleman should be gentle in everything, at least in everything that depends on himself - in carriage, temper, constructions, aims, desires. He ought, therefore, to be mild, calm, quiet, even, temperate - not hasty in judgment, not exorbitant in ambition, not overbearing, not proud, not rapacious, not oppressive; for these things are contrary to gentleness. Many such gentlemen are to be found, I trust; and many more would be were the true meaning of the name borne in mind and duly inculcated. Hare
A Christian is the gentlest of men; but then he is a man. Spurgeon
A Christian is the highest style of man. Young
A Christian making money fast is just a man in a cloud of dust, it will fill his eyes if he be not careful. Spurgeon
A Christian will find his parenthesis for prayer, even through his busiest hours. Cecil
A Christian! going, gone! Who bids for God's own image? - for His grace, Which that poor victim of the market-place Hath in her suffering won? Whittier
A Christian's wit is offensive light, A beam that aids, but never grieves the sight; Vig'rous in age as in the flush of youth, 'Tis always active on the side of truth. Cowper
A Christianity which will not help those who are struggling from the bottom to the top of society needs another Christ to die for it. Beecher
A chumeziger Borchü. Jüdisch-deutsch Uneigentlich von Menschen und Dingen, die ihren frühern Glanz eingebüßt haben. Borchu ist der Anfang des täglichen Abendgebets und heißt wörtlich: Preiset! Am Ausgange des Passah-Festes werden mit diesem Gebete die Feiertage geschlossen und der Genuss von Gesäuertem wieder hergestellt. Dieses Gebet, welches sich während der acht Ostertage einer besondern Weihe erfreute, wird nunmehr zu einem 'chumezigen', das ist zu einem gewöhnlichen, wo es erlaubt ist, Gesäuertes zu genießen, herabgesetzt.
A church debt is the devil's salary. Beecher
A churlish courtesy rarely comes but either for gain or falsehood. Sir Philip Sidney
A Chussen nemmt män nit zü Gast auf Peissech. Jüdisch-deutsch Chussen = Bräutigam; Peissech = Osterfest. Es ist sonst Sitte, einen Bräutigam zu größeren Feiertagen einzuladen. Zu Ostern aber tut man es nicht gern, weil an diesem Feste von den zehn ägyptischen Plagen erzählt wird, was für das Brautpaar ominös werden könnte.
