A Quote by Dr. William Ralph Inge, KC, VO, FBA, DD on animals, creation, devil, doubt, religion, and rest

We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.

A Quote by William Graham Sumner on art, books, discovery, duty, force, glory, inventions, life, mankind, men, order, rest, service, talent, and welfare

In the New Testament it is taught that willing and voluntary service to others is the highest duty and glory in human life. . . . The men of talent are constantly forced to serve the rest. They make the discoveries and inventions, order the battles, write the books, and produce the works of art. The benefit and enjoyment go to the whole. There are those who joyfully order their own lives so that they may serve the welfare of mankind.
