Philip Doddridge (June 26, 1702 - October 26, 1751) was an English Nonconformist leader.


  • Live while you live, the epicure would say,
    And seize the pleasures of the present day;
    Live while you live, the sacred preacher cries,
    And give to God each moment as it flies.
    Lord, in my views, let both united be:
    I live in pleasure when I live to thee.
    • Epigram on his Family Arms.
  • Awake, my soul! stretch every nerve,
    And press with vigour on;
    A heavenly race demands thy zeal,
    And an immortal crown.
    • Zeal and Vigour in the Christian Race.
