Famous quotes containing the word errors:

    There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors and hail a materialist or a magician with the same delight.
    —C.S. (Clive Staples)

    Let us pardon him his hope of a vain apocalypse, and of a second coming in great triumph upon the clouds of heaven. Perhaps these were the errors of others rather than his own; and if it be true that he himself shared the general illusion, what matters it, since his dream rendered him strong against death, and sustained him in a struggle to which he might otherwise have been unequal?
    Ernest Renan (1823–1892)

    Repent, repent, and from old errors turn!’
    Who listened to his voice, obeyed his cry?
    Only the echoes, which he made relent,
    Rung from their marble caves ‘Repent! Repent!’
    William Drummond, of Hawthornden (1585–1649)
