Quotes by William Henry Drummond

Iron sharpens iron; scholar, the scholar.
He who will not reason, is a bigot; he who cannot is a fool; and he who dares not is a slave.
I study myself more than any other subject; it is my metaphysic, and my physic.
Put a bridle on thy tongue; set a guard before thy lips, lest the words of thine own mouth destroy thy peace... on much speaking cometh repentance, but in silence is safety.
Study what thou art Whereof thou art a part What thou knowest of this art This is really what thou art. All that is without thee also is within.
He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; and he that dares not reason is a slave.
There is a silence, the child of love, which expresses everything, and proclaims more loudly than the tongue is able to do.
Instead of pointing a finger, we should hold out our hand.
To become Christ-like is the only thing in the whole world worth caring for, the thing before which every ambition of man is folly and all lower achievement vain.
To get to heaven we must take it with us.
Kindness is the golden key that unlocks the hearts of others.
Wherever we are, it is our friends that make our world.
You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
He lives who dies to win a lasting name.
All that the hand of man can uprear, is either overturned by the hand of man, or at length by standing and continuing consumed: as if there were a secret opposition in Fate (the unevitable decree of the Eternal) to control our industry, and countercheck all our devices and proposing. Possessions are not enduring, children lose their names. . . .
He who will not reason is the bigot; he who cannot is a fool; he who dares not is a slave.
