EDWARD EVERETT HALE
American clergyman and author
(1822 - 1909)
  CHECK READING LIST (1)  

Guizot, when he was in exile, asked Mr. Lowell, when he was our minister in London, how long the American union would exist, and Lowell said to him: "It will exist so long as the men of America hold to the fundamental principles of their fathers." Central in these fundamental principles is the determination of fathers and of children that in each day of life the world shall be a better world; that is, in each day of life a man shall live to the glory of God.
      - [Forefathers Day]

Look up and not down; look forward and not back; look out and not in; and lend a hand.
      - [Progress]

Make it your habit not to be critical about small things.
      - [Criticism]

The church itself has got to go outside of its own borders and carry the Gospel to every creature, or it is no church of Christ; and any mutual improvement club which thinks that by reading its Shakespeare, or by acting its pretty tableaux, or by having this or that little reading from Spenser and from Chaucer, it is going to lift itself up into any higher order of culture or life, is wholly mistaken, unless as an essential part of its duty, it goes out into the world, finds those that are falling down, and lifts them up to the majesty of freemen, who are sons of God.
      - [Churches]

Why is it that the states lying side by side are not quarreling together as they always do in feudal institutions or in European history? The difference is that the feudal institutions die within fifteen minutes after the immigrant lands in America. The word feudal is a good one, because it describes the eternal war which exists between the men who are educated in that complicated social system of top, bottom, and middle. The feudal system perishes as soon as every man understands that he is his brother's keeper, and in the company of men who know that they live together for the greater glory of God.
      - [Forefathers Day]

To look up and not down,
  To look forward and not back,
    To look out and not in--and
      To lend a hand.
      - Rule of the "Harry Wadsworth Club"
         (ch. IV), from "Ten Times One in Ten"
        [Progress]

I suppose that very few casual readers of the New York Herald of August 13, 1863, observed, in an obscure corner, among the "Deaths," the announcement,--
  "NOLAN. Died, on board U.S. Corvette 'Levant,' Lat. 2o 11' S., Long. 131o W., on the 11th of May, PHILIP NOLAN."
      - The Man Without a Country
        [Books (First Lines)]
