More From John Henry Newman
- "Let us take things as we find them: let us not attempt to distort them into what they are not… We cannot make facts. All our wishing cannot change them. We must use them."
- "A great memory is never made synonymous with wisdom, any more than a dictionary would be called a treatise."
