The Greatest Man in the World

Men of Yesterday

The greatest man in the world is he who is most like the Savior of men; who lays all his honors, gifts and attainments at the feet of Jesus, and gives him all the glory. It is he who abounds in all goodness, purity and godly fear. It is he whose soul is moved at the wretchedness of mankind, and is only concerned to see men redeemed and God glorified through Jesus Christ. It is he who has the least taste, and is least attracted by the things admired and pursued by the giddy, gay, ungodly world of mankind, while he glories in the Lord.

—Walter Scott
