John Ruskin
Quotations


Nearly all the evils in the Church have arisen from bishops desiring power more than light. They want authority, not outlook.

The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most.

No human being, however great, or powerful, was ever so free as a fish.

Remember that the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless; peacocks and lilies for instance.

You may either win your peace or buy it: win it, by resistance to evil; buy it, by compromise with evil.

The higher a man stands, the more the word "vulgar" becomes unintelligible to him.
