Francis Ellington Abbot

Theologian, Unitarian Minister

"Just as a tested and rugged virtue of the moral hero is worth more than the lovely, tender, untried innocence of the child, so is the massive strength of a soul that has conquered truth for itself worth more than the soft peach-bloom faith of a soul that takes truth on trust."

"It is easy to condemn; it is better to pity."
