    Sarah M. Grimke (1792–1873)

    No one can understand Paris and its history who does not understand that its fierceness is the balance and justification of its frivolity.

    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Would martyrs have sung in the flames for a mere inference, however inevitable it might be?
    William James (1842–1910)
