Famous quotes containing the words high and/or schools:

    For thou, O Spring! canst renovate
    All that high God did first create.
    Be still his arm and architect,
    Rebuild the ruin, mend defect.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In America the taint of sectarianism lies broad upon the land. Not content with acknowledging the supremacy as the Diety, and with erecting temples in his honor, where all can bow down with reverence, the pride and vanity of human reason enter into and pollute our worship, and the houses that should be of God and for God, alone, where he is to be honored with submissive faith, are too often merely schools of metaphysical and useless distinctions. The nation is sectarian, rather than Christian.
    James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851)
