Henry Ward Beecher

Henry Ward Beecher

was a prominent Congregationalist clergyman, social reformer, abolitionist, and speaker in the mid to late 19th century.
The cynic is one who never sees a good quality in a man and never fails to see a bad one. He is the human owl, vigilant in darkness and blind to light, mousing for vermin, and never seeing noble game. The cynic puts all human actions into two classes - openly bad and secretly bad.More Henry Ward Beecher quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
