Famous quotes containing the words eastern and/or orthodox:

    The eastern light our spires touch at morning,
    The light that slants upon our western doors at evening,
    The twilight over stagnant pools at batflight,
    Moon light and star light, owl and moth light,
    Glow-worm glowlight on a grassblade.
    O Light Invisible, we worship Thee!
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    The gloomy theology of the orthodox—the Calvinists—I do not, I cannot believe. Many of the notions—nay, most of the notions—which orthodox people have of the divinity of the Bible, I disbelieve. I am so nearly infidel in all my views, that too, in spite of my wishes, that none but the most liberal doctrines can command my assent.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
