Etienne de Grellet (1773-1855);
Thanks so much for posting this quote & also the website. Some of my ancestors were Quakers (1600's). If they lived by this and other such ideals, what a great blessing they were, and have passed it on to generations of their descendants.

As a nurse I remember this every day, I feel it should be part of our Professional Code of Conduct- if this is not how you feel as a nurse then change your occupation.

I have always loved this quote... So beautiful. If only humans would adhere. It is so sad that humans are so scared of each other. It breaks my heart.

I ended the Index of my book about Poe's Scottish connections with some of these thoughts: "We pass this way but once, and as I pass, I build a bridge for him who follows."

My dad had a plaque on the wall with this quote. I thought I remembered it being anonymous but I see here it was given credit to this missionary. I memorized it as a child and will always remember it.
