Stopford A. Brooke Quotes

Anglo-Irish Unitarian clergyman and essayist
(1832 - 1916)

If a thousand old beliefs were ruined in our march to truth we must still march on.

We want an aim that can never grow vile, and which cannot disappoint our hope. There is but one such on earth, and it is that of being like God. He who strives after union with perfect love must grow out of selfishness, and his success is secured in the omnipotent holiness of God.
