A Quote by Napoléon Buonaparte (Napoléon I) on army, books, guidance, ideas, life, maxims, power, and soul

The Bible is not merely a book-it is a living power. . . . Nowhere as in the Bible can be found such a series of beautiful ideas and admirable maxims which pose before us like the battalions of a celestial army. . . . The soul can never go astray while it has this book for its guide.

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on christianity, god, justice, life, maxims, mercy, mind, quality, and temperament

The maxims of Christian life, which should draw upon the truths of the Gospel, are always partially symbolic of the mind and temperament of those who teach them to us. The former, by their natural sweetness, show us the quality of God's mercy; the latter, by their harshness, show us God's justice.

Magdeleine Sable (c. 1599 - 1678)

Many politicians lay it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story, who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim.

Lord Macaulay Thomas Babington (1800 - 1859)
