When Death to either shall come -- I pray it be first to me.
What we do upon some great occasion will probably depend on what we already are. What we are will be the result of previous years of self-discipline.
Henry Parry Liddon
Let us act on what we have, since we have not what we wish.
Cardinal J Newman
His spiritual insights were in three major areas: First, he has inspired mankind to see the world anew as the ultimate reality. Second, he perceived and described the physical universe itself as immanently divine. And finally, he challenged us to accept the ultimate demands of modern science which assign humanity no real or ultimate importance in the universe while also aspiring us to lives of spiritual celebration attuned to the awe, beauty and wonder about us.
