BISHOP HENRY CODMAN POTTER
American Protestant Episcopal bishop
(1835 - 1908)

As we gather about the family board to-day let us remember the houseless and homeless and unbefriended, and be sure that we have done something to make sunshine in their hearts, no matter what November gloom may reign without. And as we grasp the hand and look into the eyes of friend and kinsman, be this the greeting we give: "Brother, whatever else our homes provide to-day of plenty and good cheer, let us provide things honest in the sight of all men," and then, in the name of that Master whom we serve and who has loved us with such a great exceeding love, "let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and evil-speaking be put away from us with all malice; and let us be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another," whatever the old wound that aches and burns to-day, "even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven us."
      - [Thanksgiving Day]

If there be no nobility of descent, all the more indispensable is that there should be nobility of ascent,--a character in them that bear rule so fine and high and pure that as men come within the circle of its influence they involuntarily pay homage to that which is the one pre-eminent distinction,--the royalty of virtue.
      - in address at Washington Chapel Service in St. Paul's Chapel, New York

We have exchanged the Washington dignity for the Jeffersonian simplicity, which was in truth only another name for the Jeffersonian vulgarity.
      - in an address at the Washington Centennial Service in New York
        [Dignity]
