FOR right is right, since God is God,
And right the day must win.
To doubt would be disloyalty,
To falter would be sin.
Frederick W. Faber


A GENEROUS spirit prefers that his country should be poor and weak and of no account, but free, rather than powerful, prosperous, and enslaved. It is better to be the citizen of a humble commonwealth in the Alps, without a prospect of influence beyond the narrow frontier, than the subject of the superb autocracy that overshadows half of Asia and of Europe.
Lord Acton


THIS is not the liberty which we can hope, that no grievance should arise in the commonwealth, but when complaints are freely heard, deeply considered, and speedily reformed, then is the utmost bound of civil liberty attained that wise men look for.
John Milton


THE kingdom of this world must become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ. How, if His Spirit is not to mingle with political and social truths?
Frederick W. Robertson
