A resolution to attend theatres or operas is an absolute disqualification for Holy Orders.
Wilberforce quotes
He was the first of the Bishops of the Victorian age to show what the duties of a bishop were. He may truly be said to have recast the whole idea of the Episcopate, and to have successfully raised the tone of clerical life.
I do not quite like hearing you, for you make me cry.

Wilberforce Samuel quotes

Wilberforce Samuel
Shabby, word-eating, pocket-picketing, sacrilegious villains.
Samuel Wilberforce quotes
I admired and liked him most before he became a Bishop, and before he leant so much to those High Church views which did harm.
Samuel Wilberforce
The Bishop was the Holy Terror of his time; he shows up on the wrong side of every dispute.
Wilberforce Samuel quotes
Is it on your grandmotherís or grandfatherís side that you are descended from an ape?
