John Lancaster Spalding Quote


Picture Quote:



To how much lying, extravagance, hypocrisy and servilism does not the fear of ridicule lead? Human respect makes us cowards and slaves. It may deter from evil, but much oftener it drives to baseness. We are too much afraid, said Cato, of death, exile and poverty.  - John Lancaster Spalding
