FASTING AND FEASTING

I wept and I chastened my soul with fasting – Psalm 69:10

Ye…eat the lambs out of the flock…drink wine in bowls…but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph – Amos 6:3,4,6

Gluttony is the sepulcher of the living, and a kind of spiritual drowning of a man. – William Jenkyn

Fasting which tames the body, without humility, makes proud the mind. – John Boys

Dives {rich men} fared deliciously every day; there was no Friday in his week, nor fasting in his almanac, nor lent in his year. – Thomas Fuller
