Page 205 - To put political power in the hands of men embittered and degraded by poverty is to tie firebrands to foxes and turn them loose amid the standing corn...
Page 83 - Lord require of thee, but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly before thy God.
Page 56 - Could Theodore Parker worship my God ? — Christ Jesus is his name. All that there is of God to me is bound up in that name. . A dim and shadowy effluence rises from Christ, and that I am taught to call the Father. A yet more tenuous and invisible film of thought arises, and that is the Holy Spirit. But neither are to me aught tangible, restful, accessible.
