A Great Surgeon

I was now assured by evidence which I could not resist, that all which man—with his limited knowledge and experience—has learned to regard as due to Supreme "Power" and "Wisdom," although immeasurably beyond his comprehension, is also associated with the exercise of an "absolutely beneficent" influence over all living things, of every grade, which exist within its range.

And the result of my labor has at least brought me its own reward, by conferring emancipation from the fetters of all the creeds, and unshakable confidence in the Power, the Wisdom, and the Beneficence which pervade and rule the universe.

Sir Henry Thompson.
A Great Surgeon.

The capacity for religion is a talent, the highest talent we have.—Horace Bushnell.
