"I am convinced that the general inhumanity of mankind proceeds--first, from the cursed false principle of common education--and, secondly, from a total indifference (if not disbelief) of the Christian faith;--a heart and mind impressed with a firm belief of the Christian tenets, must of course exercise itself in a constant uniform general philanthropy--such a being carries his heaven in his breast--and such be thou!"
— Sancho, Charles Ignatius (1729-1780)
(I.xlvii, pp. 133-5; pp. 91-2 in Carretta)
