In Adam's fall--
  We sinned all.
      - Unattributed Author, New England Primer

Every sin deserveth God's wrath and curse, both in this life and that which is to come.
      - Unattributed Author, Westminster Catechism

Every sin provokes its punishment.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

Sin is the insurrection and rebellion of the heart against God; it turns from Him, and turns against Him; it takes up arms against God.
      - Richard Alleine

A sturdy, hardened sinner shall advance to the utmost pitch of impiety, with less reluctance than he took the first step while his conscience was yet vigilant and tender.
      - Francis Atterbury

Where is the thief who cannot find bad when he hunts for it?
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

Thou wilt not chronicle our sand-like sins;
  For sin is small, and mean, and barren. Good
    Only is great, and generous, and fruitful.
      Number the mountains, not the sands, O God!
      - Philip James Bailey

It is the goodly outside that sin puts on which tempteth to destruction. It has been said that sin is like the bee, with honey in its mouth, but a sting in its tail.
      - Hosea Ballou

O sin, how you paint your face! how you flatter us poor mortals on to death! You never appear to the sinner in your true character; you make fair promises, but you never fulfil one; your tongue is smoother than oil, but the poison of asps is under your lip!
      - Hosea Ballou

Of all the ingenious mistakes into which erring man has fallen, perhaps none have been so pernicious in their consequences, or have brought so many evils into the world, as the popular opinion that the way of the transgressor is pleasant and easy.
      - Hosea Ballou

There is no immunity from the consequences of sin; punishment is swift and sure to one and all.
      - Hosea Ballou

Once she has committed sin, there is nothing left for the Protestant woman, whereas the Catholic Church, hope of forgiveness makes a woman sublime.
      - Honore de Balzac

Sin is never at a stay; if we do not retreat from it, we shall advance in it; and the farther on we go, the more we have to come back.
      - Isaac Barrow

Use sin as it will use you; spare it not, for it will not spare you; it is your murderer, and the murderer of the whole world. Use it, therefore, as a murderer should be used; kill it before it kills you; and though it brings you to the grave, as it did your head, it shall not be able to keep you there. You love not death; love not the cause of death.
      - Richard Baxter

Vice is attended with temporary felicity, piety with eternal joy.
      - Chevalier Pierre du Terrail Bayard

A few sensual and voluptuous persons may for a season eclipse this native light of the soul, but can never so wholly smother and extinguish it but that, at some lucid intervals, it will recover itself again, and shine forth to the conviction of their conscience.
      - Richard Bentley

And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
      - Bible, Luke (ch. XVIII, v. 13)

My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
      - Bible, Proverbs (ch. I, v. 10)

Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.
      - Bible, Proverbs (ch. XIII, v. 15)

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
      - Bible, Romans (ch. VI, v. 23)

It is the sin which we have not committed which seems the most monstrous.
      - Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux

Secret sins commonly lie nearest the heart.
      - Thomas Brooks

There is the seed of all sins--of the vilest and worst of sins--in the best of men.
      - Thomas Brooks

As sins proceed they ever multiply, and like figures in arithmetic, the last stands for more than all that wert before it.
      - Sir Thomas Browne

For sin is just this, what man cannot by its very nature do with his whole being; it is possible to silence the conflict in the soul, but it is not possible to uproot it.
      - Martin Buber
