Charles Kingsley Quote

It is the childlike, simple, patient, reverent heart, which science at once demands and cultivates. To prejudice or haste, to self-conceit or ambition, she proudly shuts her treasuries — to open them to men of humble heart, whom this world thinks simple dreamers — her Newtons, and Owens, and Faradays.


Alton Locke, Taylor and Poet, Chapter XVIII (p. 141), Macmillan & Company Ltd. 1911
