WILLIAMS, William R. Quotes
(1804-1885), American clergyman
When Dr. Johnson was asked why so many literary men were infidels, he replied, "Because they are ignorant of the Bible." Were they truly acquainted with its contents, they must acknowledge it to be from God. And the truth of the remark is confirmed by the fact that some of the most distinguished advocates of Christianity took up the Bible to oppose, but ended by believing and defending it.
Youth is the season of hope, enterprise, and energy, to a nation as well as an individual.
Zeal is the fire of love, active for duty—burning as it flies.
