William Sloane Coffin Jr. Quotes

Hope is a state of mind independent of the state of the world. If your hearts full of hope, you can be persistent when you cant be optimistic.

There is nothing anti-intellectual in the leap of faith, for faith is not believing without proof but trusting without reservation.

— William Sloane Coffin Jr.

It is terribly important to realize that the leap of faith is not so much a leap of thought as of action. For while in many matters it is first we must see then we will act; in matters of faith it is first we must do then we will know, first we will be and then we will see. One must, in short, dare to act wholeheartedly without absolute certainty.

Law is not as disinterested as our concepts of law pretend; law serves power; law in large measure is a recapitulation of the status quo; it confirms a rigid order designed to insulate the beneficiaries of the status quo from the disturbances of change. The painful truth
one with a long history
is that police are around in large part to guarantee a peaceful disgestion for the rich.
