Harry Emerson Fosdick

And how about some quotes from the most prominent liberal Baptist minister of the early 20th Century: Harry Emerson Fosdick

"No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined."

"A person wrapped up in himself makes a small package."

"Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat."

"I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it."

Quite delicious.
