They fervently believed that God expected them to save the Indians souls by convincing them to abandon their old sinful beliefs and to embrace the one true Christian faith.

Most priests came to believe that the Indians were lesser beings inherently incapable of fully understanding Christianity."

Quotes About Notre Dame De Paris

And nothing reminds me so much of the monthly parts of Notre-Dame de Paris, and of various books by Gérard de Nerval, that used to hang outside the grocers door at Combray, than does, in its rectangular and flowery border, supported by recumbent river-gods, a personal share in the Water Company." - Author: Marcel Proust

Quotes About Giving All Your Heart

"When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you. Be careful that you do not forget the LORD your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down,and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied,then your heart will become proud and you will forget the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery... But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today." - Author: Anonymous

Quotes About Insensibility

"Very suddenly there came back to my soul motion and sound—the tumultuous motion of the heart, and, in my ears, the sound of its beating. Then a pause in which all is blank.

Then, very suddenly, thought, and shuddering terror, and earnest endeavor to comprehend my true state. Then a strong desire to lapse into insensibility." - Author: Edgar Allan Poe
