Author Quotes

Since the moral law can rightfully command us to live as aspirants to eternity, eternity must really be our destination.

In Nature we best see God under a disguise so heavy that it allows us to discern little more than that someone is there; within our own moral life we see Him with the mask, so to say, half fallen off.

All change in history, all advance, comes from the nonconformists. If there had been no troublemakers, no Dissenters, we should still be living in caves.

History is not another name for the past, as many people imply. It is the name for stories about the past.

If people are to respect each other for what they are, they must cease to respect each other for what they own.
