      - Francis Bacon

There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford.
      - John Bradford, Writings (vol. II),
        said upon seeing a criminal pass by

It is the very nature of grace to make a man strive to be most eminent in that particular grace which is most opposed to his bosom sin.
      - Thomas Brooks

There is no such way to attain to greater measures of grace, as for a man to live up to that little grace he has.
      - Thomas Brooks

There are true graces, which, as Homer feigns, are linked and tied hand in hand, because it is by their influence that human hearts are so firmly united to each other.

Augustine does not disagree with this when he teaches that it is a faculty of the reason and the will to choose good with the assistance of grace; evil, when grace is absent.
      - John Calvin

It is graceful in a man to think and to speak with propriety, to act with deliberation, and in every occurrence of life to find out and persevere in the truth. On the other hand, to be imposed upon, to mistake, to falter, and to be deceived, is as ungraceful as to rave or to be insane.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Whatever is graceful is virtuous, and whatever is virtuous is graceful.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Grace is given of god, but knowledge is bought in the market.
      - Arthur Hugh Clough

Riches may enable us to confer favors; but to confer them with propriety and with grace requires a something that riches cannot give. Even trifles may be so bestowed as to cease to be trifles.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

God giveth true grace to but a chosen few, however many aspire to it.
      - Orville Dewey

Let grace and goodness be the principal loadstone of thy affections.

Grace is the outcome of inward harmony.
      - Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Every natural action is graceful.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Stately and tall he moves in the hall,
  The chief of a thousand for grace.
      - Kate Franklin,
        Life at Olympus--Godey's Lady's Book
         (vol. XXIII, p. 33)

All actions and attitudes of children are graceful because they are the luxuriant and immediate offspring of the moment,--divested of affectation and free from all pretence.
      - Henry Fuseli

The grace will carry us, if we do not willfully betray our succors, victoriously through all difficulties.
