Calvin On Living Well

In ordering the life well, let faith and religion be the foundation, which being taken away, all other virtues are but smokes.

Religion cannot be separated from the fear of God and the reverence of Him, neither can any man be counted godly, save he who, acknowledging God to be his Father and Lord, doth addict himself wholly to Him.

-John Calvin, from his commentary on Acts 10
