Systems are to be appreciated by their general effects, and not by particular exceptions.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In America the taint of sectarianism lies broad upon the land. Not content with acknowledging the supremacy as the Diety, and with erecting temples in his honor, where all can bow down with reverence, the pride and vanity of human reason enter into and pollute our worship, and the houses that should be of God and for God, alone, where he is to be honored with submissive faith, are too often merely schools of metaphysical and useless distinctions. The nation is sectarian, rather than Christian.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If the newspapers are useful in overthrowing tyrants, it is only to establish a tyranny of their own.More James Cooper quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
