Author Quotes

History is philosophy learned from examples.

Necessity is stronger than human nature.

Do not live to eat, but eat that you may live.

The simple, absolute and immutable mysteries of divine Truth are hidden in the super-luminous darkness of that silence which revealeth in secret. For this darkness, though of deepest obscurity, is yet radiantly clear; and, though beyond touch and sight, it more than fills our unseeing minds with splendours of transcendent beauty.
