Quote of the Day (Benjamin Disraeli, on How Man is a ‘Being Born to Believe’)

“Man is a being born to believe, and if no church comes forward with all the title deeds of truth, he will find altars and idols in his own heart and his own imagination.”—British politician Benjamin Disraeli, speech at Oxford (Meeting for Society for Increasing Endowments of Small Livings in the Diocese of Oxford), November 25, 1864, in Wit and Wisdom of Benjamin Disraeli, Earl of Beaconsfield (1886)
