Author Quotes

The critical faculty has its value in correcting errors, reforming abuses, and demolishing superstitions.—But the constructive faculty is much nobler in itself, and immeasurably more valuable in its results, for the obvious reason that it is a much nobler and better thing to build up than to pull down.—It requires skill and labor to erect a building, but any idle tramp can burn it down.—Only God can form and paint a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.

The great trouble with the skepticism of the age is, that it is not thorough enough. It questions everything but its own foundations.

Only God can form and paint a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.
