life at its Highest
“[Jesus Christ] is tender without being weak,
strong without being coarse,
lowly without being servile.
He has conviction without intolerance,
enthusiasm without fanaticism,
holiness without Pharisaism,
passion without prejudice.
This man alone never made a false step,
never struck a jarring note.
His life alone moved on those high levels
where local limitations are transcended
and the absolute Law of Moral Beauty prevails.
It was life at its Highest.”
- Thomas Watson
