Calvin on Doctrine

“Doctrine is not an affair of the tongue, but of the life; is not apprehended by the intellect and the memory merely, like other branches of learning; but is received only when it possesses the whole soul, and finds its seat in the innermost recesses of the heart.” (John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, 3.6.4)
