Psalms 116:10

Ernest Naville, the eminent philosopher of Geneva, wrote to the Countess de Gasparin in 1892: 'I often ask myself what view, as death approaches, can be taken of their own past by men of letters who have used their pens in the service of evil passions, or have employed their talent in spreading a doubt which consumes them and the melancholy effects of which they cannot fail to recognize. People of that sort arouse within me feelings which fluctuate between scorn and pity. Happy are those who can say, borrowing the words of Holy Scripture, "I believed, therefore have I spoken".'

La Comtesse Agénor de Gasparin et sa Famille, pp. 426, 427.
