Thomas Hughes
Christ's whole life on earth was the assertion and example of true manliness the setting forth in living act and word what man is meant to be, and how he should carry himself in this world of God one long campaign in which the "temptation" stands out as the first great battle and victory.
Hughes quotes
It's more than a game, it's an institution.
There isn't such a reasonable fellow in the world, to hear him talk. He never wants anything but what's right and fair; only when you come to settle what's right and fair, it's everything that he wants and nothing that you want. And that's his idea of a compromise. Give me the Brown compromise when I'm on his side.

Hughes Thomas quotes
Heaven, they say, protects children, sailors, and drunken men; and whatever answers to Heaven in the academical system protects freshmen.
Hughes Thomas
From behind the shadow of the still small voice more awful than tempest or earthquake more sure and persistent than day and night is always sounding full of hope and strength to the weariest of us all, "Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
Thomas Hughes quotes
He who has conquered his own coward spirit has conquered the whole outward world.
