A Quote by James Martineau on beauty, darkness, existence, faith, goodness, habits, knowledge, life, love, sleep, thought, trade, truth, and vitality

The mere lapse of years is not life. To eat, to drink, and sleep; to be exposed to darkness and the light; to pace around in the mill of habit, and turn thought into an instrument of trade-this is not life. Knowledge, truth, love, beauty, goodness, faith, alone can give vitality to the mechanism of existence.

James Martineau (1805 - 1900)
