More From Irving Babbitt
- "A person who has sympathy for mankind in the lump, faith in its future progress, and desire to serve the great cause of this progress, should be called not a humanist, but a humanitarian, and his creed may be designated as humanitarianism."
- "The humanities need to be defended today against the encroachments of physical science, as they once needed to be against the encroachment of theology."
- "The humanitarian lays stress almost solely upon breadth of knowledge and sympathy."
