Henry Ward Beecher

1813 - 1887

A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on action, blindness, cynicism, darkness, failure, good, nobility, and quality

The cynic is one who never sees a good quality in a man, and never fails to see a bad one. He is the human owl, vigilant in darkness and blind to light, mousing for vermin, and never seeing noble game. The cynic puts all human actions into two classes - openly bad and secretly bad.
