Universalist Quote of the Day #211

“Consider one’s self a traveller to eternity, soon to take flight from all these scenes of littleness and imperfection, and to expiate over unbounded territories, to mingle with higher intelligences, and to engage in loftier occupations, ‘to rise in science as in bliss, initiate in the secrets of the skies,’–these are thoughts which ‘make man man.’  They indisputably beget a higher taste, even in this world, for those occupations of the intellect and the affections which are to constitute our state and our happiness hereafter.”

–Rev. W.M. Fernald
