Charles Eliot Norton
1827 - 1908

Professor of art history at Harvard University, founder of the Dante Society of America and of the Archeological Institute of America, author of Considerations on Some Recent Social Theories and other works


... the voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more needed than when the clamor of fife and drum, echoed by the press and too often by the pulpit, is bidding all men fall in and keep step and obey in silence the tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is the duty of the good citizen not to be silent, and spite of obloquy, misrepresentation and abuse, to insist on being heard, and with sober counsel to maintain the everlasting validity of the principles of the moral law.

1898 - from his address "True Patriotism" delivered at Harvard University
