the septenary


Philosophic argument, especially that drawn from the vastness of the universe, in comparison with the apparent insignificance of this globe, has sometimes shaken my reason for the faith that is in me; but my heart has always assured and reassured me that the gospel of Jesus Christ must be Divine Reality. The Sermon on the Mount cannot be a mere human production. This belief enters into the very depth of my conscience. The whole history of man proves it.
-Daniel Webster (1782-1852),
U.S. lawyer, statesman. Spoken on the eve of his death and carved as his epitaph.

Set the foot down with distrust on the crust of the world- it is thin.
-Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950),
U.S. poet. Huntsman, What Quarry?, "The Underground System" (1939).

Where there is the necessary technical skill to move mountains, there is no need for the faith that moves mountains.
-Eric Hoffer (1902-83),
U.S. philosopher. The Passionate State of Mind, aph. 12 (1955).
