Interesting words

"If you are an unbeliever, be too profound and large-minded to ridicule religion or to act against it; too wise to be a dogmatist or fanatic in your infidelity. Respect piety and devotion; even support institutions as venerable, beautiful, or useful, to which you do not assent; honor the ministers of religion, and let it content you to decline its mysteries without assailing or denouncing them."
John Henry, Cardinal Newman
