Famous quotes containing the words members and/or church:

    I rejoice that horses and steers have to be broken before they can be made the slaves of men, and that men themselves have some wild oats still left to sow before they become submissive members of society. Undoubtedly, all men are not equally fit subjects for civilization; and because the majority, like dogs and sheep, are tame by inherited disposition, this is no reason why the others should have their natures broken that they may be reduced to the same level.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A church is disaffected when it is persecuted, quiet when it is tolerated, and actively loyal when it is favoured and cherished.
    Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859)
