QUOTE (Joseph Priestley) – Mar. 24

March 24, 2014

Portrait of Joseph Priestley

I must not omit, however, to observe, that the prophets of the Old Testament, and our Saviour and the apostles in the New, do not content themselves with giving instructions, concerning men’s conduct in particular cases and instances, but are more especially careful to inculcate the necessity of cultivating such an inward temper of mind as will form a complete character, which will lead to the observance of every particular duty, and make the constant practice of it easy and delightful.

~ Joseph Priestley

In honor of Joseph Priestley, the discoverer of oxygen, who was born on this day in 1733.
