Caroline Stephen

  • Surely we may with reverence say that, in a true and deep sense, God Himself is the answer to prayer.

  • True inward quietness is not that which may be produced by shutting out all outward causes of distraction — a process which, when carried out too severely, may intensify the inward ferment of the mind, especially in the young. It is rather a state of stable equilibrium; it is not vacancy, but stability — the steadfastness of a single purpose.

Caroline Stephen, English religious writer

(1834 - 1909)

Full name: Caroline Emelia Stephen.
