Famous quotes containing the words distinctions and/or moral:

    Distinctions drawn by the mind are not necessarily equivalent to distinctions in reality.
    Thomas Aquinas (c. 1225–1274)

    But, with whatever exception, it is still true that tradition characterizes the preaching of this country; that it comes out of the memory, and not out of the soul; that it aims at what is usual, and not at what is necessary and eternal; that thus historical Christianity destroys the power of preaching, by withdrawing it from the exploration of the moral nature of man; where the sublime is, where are the resources of astonishment and power.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
