—  Harry Emerson Fosdick
It is going to be a long, hard haul; it will require patience, courage, faith that hangs on when hope fails, if we are to tame the rude barbarity of man, so that the atomic age becomes a blessing, not a curse. There never was such a day for the Christian gospel. God help us all in these years ahead to make that gospel live in men and nations!

—  Harry Emerson Fosdick

I would rather live in a world where life is surrounded by mystery, than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.
