Philosophy

Epictetus, Greek Stoic philosopher, c. A.D. 55-135

"What is the first business of one who practices philosophy? To get rid of self-conceit. For it is impossible for anyone to begin to learn that which he thinks he already knows."

KlausnerJewish scholar

“It is universally admitted…that Christ taught the purest and sublimest system of ethics, one which throws the moral precepts and maxims of the wisest men of antiquity far into shade.”

William Ellery Channing, American religious leader whose writings and sermons led to the emergence of Unitarianism. 1780-1842

“I know not what can be added to heighten the wonder, reverence and love which are due to Jesus.”

Thomas Carlyl, Scottish writer; believed democracy to be absurd

“…our divinest symbol. Higher has the human thought not yet reached. A symbol of quite perennial, infinite character.”

William Lecky, Irish historian, dedicated opponent of organized Christianity

“…has shown itself capable of acting on all ages, nations, temperaments, and conditions, has been not only the highest pattern of virtue, but also the strongest incentive to its practice, and has exercised so deep an influence that it may be truly said that the simple record of three short years of active life has done more to regenerate and soften mankind than all the disquisitions of philosophers and all the exhortation of moralists.”

- Ruskin, Lessing, Webster, Wagner and innumerable other people agree.
