John Caird Quote – “There is provided an escape…”

There is provided an escape from the narrowness and poverty of the individual life, and the possibility of a life which is other and larger than our own, and yet which is most truly our own. For, to be ourselves, we must be more than ourselves. What we call love is, in truth… the losing of our individual selves to gain a larger self.

John Caird (1820 – 1898)
