John Locke

John Locke is remembered as a preeminent philosopher, particularly on the role and regulation of government. He also had some good thoughts on the role of religion in individuals and society. Though it is difficult to pin down his exact beliefs, these are useful thoughts for everyday life.

“I thought that I had no time for faith nor time to pray, then I saw an armless man saying his Rosary with his feet.”

 

“The Bible is one of the greatest blessings bestowed by God on the children of men. It has God for its author; salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture for its matter. It is all pure.”

 

“To love our neighbor as ourselves is such a truth for regulating human society, that by that alone one might determine all the cases in social morality.”

 

“One unerring mark of the love of truth is not entertaining any proposition with greater assurance than the proofs it is built upon will warrant.”

 

“Parents wonder why the streams are bitter, when they themselves have poisoned the fountain.”
