John Jay Chapman, William Lloyd Garrison, Chapter 7: the man of action (search)
he deep apothegm of the sage, and the words of Christ, are ever on his lips. Such things pass muste may be traced to the phrases and thoughts of Christ, as for instance Peace (Peace I give unto you)rough organization, nor how far the sayings of Christ were parts of one another, nor whether at the eling as to who should be greatest even during Christ's lifetime. As soon as any organization is foway a man speaks who feels as Christ felt. If Christ's way of feeling be right, there is something uld you see as clearly, feel as keenly, as did Christ. Your calmness is only possible because your t mild gentlemen those Pharisees were, to whom Christ used such strong language. How inoffensive ths probably were, we shall have to confess that Christ's rebuke fell on men whose faults were mild cocalp. Now in all these cases — in the case of Christ, of the Abolitionists, and of the denouncers onception.

pt at the cost of two centuries of human passion. There is a demonic element also in Garrison's courage. He displays, on this occasion, at least two kinds of genius, the genius of satire,---Voltaire might have uttered the scathing slashes about Christ in the presidential chair, --and the all but antipodal genius of infinite sweetness of temperament. The New York Herald in advance of the meeting denounced Garrison for many days in succession, and advised the breaking up of the meeting by vioed in reference to the other tests. His praises are sung in Louisiana, Alabama, and the other Southern States just as well as in Massachusetts. Captain Rynders--Are you aware that the slaves in the South have their prayermeetings in honor of Christ? Mr. Garrison--Not a slaveholding or a slave-breeding Jesus. (Sensation.) The slaves believe in a Jesus that strikes off chains. In this country, Jesus has become obsolete. A profession in him is no longer a test. Who objects to his cours
John Jay Chapman, William Lloyd Garrison, Chapter 9: Garrison and Emerson. (search)
ly that Emerson did not understand these particular times but was greatly puzzled by them. Dr. Holmes has said that it would have taken a long time to get rid of slavery if some of Emerson's teachings in this lecture had been accepted as the whole gospel of liberty. But, he adds, how much its last sentence covers with its soothing tribute! Sometimes in reading this essay on The times, it has seemed to me as if the whole of it were tinctured with condescension;just as the paragraph about Christ quoted above is unpleasant through its crudity of feeling. There is, however, no condescension in either passage. Emerson was the last man in the world to feel condescension. If he had had an inkling of what Garrison's activity signified he would have shouted approval. Emerson's humility was abundantly approved in the outcome. Let this be noted: Emerson was a perfectly courageous person; regard for appearance has nothing to do with the ineffectuality of his perceptions. Upon Lovejoy's

selves elsewhere. In so doing they create a new age. The deeper needs of humanity can only be met slowly. It required several hundred years for the meaning and importance of St. Francis to become apparent. To his contemporaries he seemed to be a disciple sent to the poor; yet his influence ultimately qualified the art and letters, and tinged the philosophy of life of several centuries. All these new saints of ours.-new Christians, and loving persons who crowd the slums, and rediscover Christ in themselves and in others-lack power to explain; they merely exist. Through them, or rather through the heart which they infuse, literature and intellect will return, art and mental vigor will be restored to us. It would seem that the bowels and viscera of society must be heated first, and thereafter in time — it may be a century or two--a warmer life will reach the mind. These new grubs that creep out of the ground, these golden bees that dart by us in the sunshine, going so directly to
