For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?…
It has ever been held the highest wisdom for a man not merely to submit to necessity — necessity will make him submit — but to know and believe well that the stern thing which necessity had ordered was the wisest, the best, the thing wanted there. To cease his frantic pretension of scanning this great God's-world in his small fraction of a brain; to know that it had verily, though deep beyond his soundings, a just law, that the soul of it was good — that his part in it was to conform to the law of the whole, and in devout silence follow that; not questioning it, obeying it as unquestionable.
