Happiness is not the end of duty, it is a constituent of it. It is in it and of it; not an equivalent, but an element.
A democracy cannot function effectively when its constituent members believe laws are being bought and sold.john paul stevens
True repentance has as its constituent elements not only grief and hatred of sin, but also an apprehension of the mercy of God in Christ. It hates the sin, and not simply the penalty; and it hates the sin most of all because it has discovered God's love.william mackergo taylor

A different conception of society , very different from that which now prevails, is in process of formation. Under the name of Anarchy, a new interpretation of the past and present life of society arises, giving at the same time a forecast as regards its future, both conceived in the same spirit as the above-mentioned interpretation in natural sciences.
