Elizabeth Gurney Fry, Quaker humanitarian (1780-1845)
I used to think and do now how little dress matters. But I find it almost impossible to keep to the principles of Friends without altering my dress and speech. . . . They appear to me a sort of protector to the principles of Christianity in the present state of the world.

Epistle 292

The Living God--(2)

HE is the Living God that gives unto you Breath, and Life, and Strength, and gives unto you all Beasts and Cattle, whereby you may be fed and cloathed:

He is the Living God, and He is to be worshipped. And that which gives you to be sensible of him, and to know him, is that which convinceth you in your Hearts of Sin and Unrighteousness. So all Gods that are made of Stone, Morter, Wood, Silver, Brass, Iron or Gold, are not the Living God, but are made of Mens Hands.
