Thought for the day, Sunday 26th June

Anniversary of the signing of the Charter of the United Nations in 1945

“Let us teach that the honour of a nation consists not in the forced submission of other states, but in equal laws and free institutions, in cultivated fields and prosperous cities; in the development of intellectual and moral power, in the diffusion of knowledge, in magnanimity and justice, the virtues and blessings of peace.”

William Ellery Channing (1780 – 1842), Unitarian minister and theologian
