Ernest Renan

The only way of salvation for the world is by returning to thy allegiance.... Firm in my faith, I shall have force to withstand my evil counsellors, my skepticism, which leads me to doubt of the people, my restless spirit which, after truth has been brought to light, impels to go on searching for it...More Ernest Renan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To conceive the good, in fact, is not sufficient; it must be made to succeed among men. To accomplish this less pure paths must be followed.More Ernest Renan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Man makes holy what he beleives, as he makes beautiful what he loves.More Ernest Renan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As a rule, all heroism is due to a lack of reflection, and thus it is necessary to maintain a mass of imbeciles. If they once understand themselves the ruling men will be lost.More Ernest Renan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To act well in this world, one must sacrifice all personal desires. The people who become missionaries of religious thought have no other Fatherland than this thought. Man is not on Earth merely to be happy, nor even simply to be honest. He is here to realize great things for humanity, to attain nobility, and to surmount the vulgarity of nearly every individual.More Ernest Renan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
